What it is

Wavetrade transforms semiconductor procurement. It's a global match-making platform, enabling semiconductor exchanges between peers. It smoothens out the bullwhip effect in the industry enhanced and driven by data and market intelligence insights. The result: optimized stock, improved working capital, and future-oriented recommendations for action.

Why you need it

Are you affected by semiconductor overstock and in need of a way to compensate for surplus components? Are you facing shortages in semiconductor stock? Are you already anticipating the next crisis and are on the lookout for data-driven responses?
Wavetrade is the strategic solution, optimizing stock, reducing disruptions, and recommending future actions. Be in control, embrace efficiency with Wavetrade, and propel your operations to success.

How it works

Streamlining component procurement and minimizing overstock are seamlessly integrated. Wavetrade matches demand and supply of all platform partners in an anonymous way. Collaborating in a trade is supported by logistics handling and quality assurance. Furthermore Wavetrade generates data-driven recommendations for future action from the activities on the platform and additional external data.

Making the Industry Inventory of
Critical Components Available

Strategically reduce stock inventories.

Wavetrade makes the stock of surplus chips of participating platform members available to the entire community. Members can sell and buy components to and from each other. This enables inventory reduction and net working capital optimization. Anonymity is maintained during the matching phase but also afterwards while the components are exchanged.

Avoid ad-hoc escalations via an additional channel.

Procuring critical components requires intense manual effort when done without a systematic platform. Especially during allocation this usually requires resource-heavy taskforces and leads to escalations. In contrast, Wavetrade continuously screens supply and demand on the platform and systematically matches them.

Optimize supply chain resilience through automated recommendations.

Wavetrade increases semiconductor supply chain resilience as it generates data-driven recommendations for future actions from the activities on the platform enriched by external data. In anticipation of the next crisis, it is now time to take precautionary measures and early and sustainably prevent manual task force efforts.
