Octopart

Aligni works with Octopart to help you populate quotes and vendor part numbers as well as view market data on parts in your database.  To see the Octopart information, your site needs to have the ActiveQuote feature and your account must be enabled to view cost data.

From any Part Details page, the Quotes widget will have the small blue Octopart logo icon in the top right corner.  Click on this icon to view a snapshot of pricing information from Octopart.

Adding Quotes and Vendor Part Numbers

The vendor selection is not pre-selected when you create a new quote or vendor part number from Octopart data; you will need to select the proper vendor manually.
