VMS offers Velocity a distinct competitive advantage in its ability to provide unsurpassed speed in sourcing available material from around the world.  Our strategically positioned global sourcing teams work around the clock to locate the parts you need, when you need them, whether lead time is outside of your demand, product allocation, or there just seems to be no material in the market.

Within seconds of entering a part number (or multiple part numbers), Velocity receives global availability, contact information, and vendor rating for each supplier. Our VMS software results also display current and historic pricing data, current and obsolete manufacturer cross-references, and data sheets providing our sourcing experts a measurable advantage when sourcing and negotiating to meet your price point expectations. Each VMS search returns material availabilities from Velocity Stock (including exclusively consigned partner material) franchise distributors, private stock offers that are proprietary to Velocity and the complete availabilities from all global independent distributors. All suppliers are rated according to product conformance, timeliness, and historic volume.
