Yesterday, I ordered dinner from a local restaurant and it was at my door in 45 minutes. Just this morning, I had three packages delivered before 8 AM. As I write this post, a personal shopper is on their way to my house with groceries via Instacart. Later today, I’ll get a few more packages delivered that I ordered late yesterday.
We live in a rapidly evolving world of convenience and same-day shipping. This is something that consumers love and have come to expect. And even though Samtec is mostly a B2B company, virtually everyone in this world is a consumer at home, and those consumers have gotten used to being able to have virtually anything they want shipped to them incredibly quickly.
Enter Samtec Reserve™
Samtec Reserve™ is a new designation that we’ve provided on over 200,000 (and growing quickly) connectors and cables. These are popular stocked parts that are guaranteed to ship in 1-day. Basically, if you see this badge, you can sleep better knowing your product will arrive quickly.
You’ll now see this badge beginning to appear throughout the website. It currently exists on full part and series pages, and we’ll be adding it to applications such as Solutionator and Search and My Samtec in the coming weeks.
Here is where you’ll see it on each page.
If your product is eligible, you’ll see the badge on the right side of the configurator on the series page. This may appear and disappear as you configure your product based on the part number.
Many part numbers from our ERF8 series are already covered – https://www.samtec.com/products/erf8
Part Number Page
If your product is eligible, you’ll see the badge on the top right side of the part number page. The exact position of the badge may change based on your login status.
ERF8-005-05.0-L-DV-TR is an example of a part number that is already covered – https://www.samtec.com/products/erf8-005-05.0-l-dv-tr
Coming Soon for Samtec Reserve™
Next up, you’ll begin seeing this badge within My Samtec in our Pricing and Delivery tool, as well as our Search and Solutionator tools, and just about anywhere you can find a Samtec part number throughout the website.
We’ll do another blog post as each area of the website is updated. Look for this sometime in January.
