Key Features

Parts data

Specs and datasheets for your parts are instantly accessible in the app. The datasheet is a single click away, just when you need it. With no extra work: known parts automatically get links to online datasheets.

Configurable tables

Configure your tables the way you want. Every table in PartsBox can be customized, with separate settings for display and for export (to PDF or CSV).

Barcode scanner support

To add stock or create parts, simply scan the bag that the part came in. Use your computer's camera or a connected barcode scanner (2D or 1D). PartsBox will offer to create the part if it doesn’t exist, pop up an "Add Stock" dialog, and even fill in the quantity.

Automatic BOM Pricing

Your projects have always up-to-date pricing. Instead of dealing with complex spreadsheets, currency conversions, confusing price breaks, MOQs and order multiples, let PartsBox compare and select the best offers and provide you with a BOM price for any quantity, also taking your local stock into account.

Add your own offers

Add offers you get from suppliers and compare them with online offers. PartsBox will handle offer expiration, minimum ordering quantity (MOQ), order multiples and currency conversions.

Document management

Keep documents together with part data, for quick retrieval and easy access. Zero friction. Need to store a file? Just add it to a part as an attachment. Don't worry about naming files, creating directories, and finding the right place on the file server. Adding information has never been simpler. (Learn more)
