I love the fact that PartsBase is a breeze to use and search for parts in stock. It is great that they record the history on parts when sold and bought along with other info such as government contracts. They have made that history accessible to the user which is a nice plus. The fairly recent update has been a great upgrade with usability and looks. Also, the ability to send out and accept quotes is easily done and works well.
What do you dislike?
Switching from ILS, I have noticed that there are many vendors we work with that are not listed. Some of those vendors are used a lot and it would be nice to see their stock, however, I understand this is not an issue with PartsBase, but it does hurt its value with my company. I also dislike the constant sales calls to get us back on PartsBase when we had previously terminated the service which was prior to the fairly recent update.
