Fort Worth, Texas — Feb. 12, 2009 —TTI, Inc., a global distributor of passive, connector, electromechanical, and discrete components, announced the enhancement of its online information repository, the MarketEYE Research Center.
TTI’s MarketEYE Research Center now hosts a blog that features posts from industry experts including Dennis Zogbi of Paumanok Publications on passive components, Ron Bishop of Bishop & Associates, Inc. on connectors, Michael Schwert of Cumulus, Inc. on switches and relays, Walt Custer of Custer Consulting on general business conditions in the electronic component industry. The blog will also highlight contributions from Design Chain Associates, LLC who will provide updates on the electronic component supply chain. TTI’s own seasoned executives will also weigh in on the state of the industry and how it will affect inventory, lead-times, and pricing.
The MarketEYE Research Center will allow visitors more interaction by providing the ability to stay updated through RSS feeds. The process of sharing information on the site is now easier with the integration of share buttons for popular sites like Twitter, Digg, StumbleUpon, and many more. A blog comment feature, allowing readers to engage in a dialogue with the contributors and their peers, will be implemented later this year.
Craig Conrad, TTI Senior Vice President, Chief Marketing and Strategic Planning Officer, said, “Over the past several years, MarketEYE has grown to become an important resource for many of our customers and industry colleagues. We’re pleased that such an impressive group of industry followers have partnered with us. We’re excited that DCA has joined us and will be providing us with their insights on several of the environmental issues facing our industry. We will continue to look for methods and contributors who will give our customers valuable insights as to what is going on in our industry.”
