Comments: We bought this software because according the webpage it should make your ordering process easier. The problem is that software has so many bugs and is working in not exactly consistent way. This software should be reworked and not to be released for customers in such unfinished version. We are quite disappointed that some company can sell something like that.

Comments: Our design house is in US and manufacturing department in China. This tool allows our multiple users to work on the same BOM simultaneously and avoid any overwritten mistakes. Another interesting feature is it allow you to estimate the product cost and risk of component obsolescence at early design stage.

Pros: Easy multiple users configuration and usage

A good tool for electronic design companies and ems providers

Comments: The tool provides some unique features to help user to manage their component library and BOM in one centralized database. The real-time collaborative approach allows users to work simultaneously across the world yet avoiding mistakes. It takes quite some hours to build up your first database but it's worth of the effort in the end. The support team responded my email in a timely manner.

Comments: We have been using Excel spreadsheet to manage our BOMs for many years. However, it is causing more and more issues like data synchronization between different product lines and different teams, changes management, typo, etc... We realized that we need a centralized database to manage our BOMs and electronic components.

Ciiva BOM solves our trouble by providing a complete centralized database, where our engineers can work in the same database synchronously no matter where they are. It supports revision control and full tractability. It's integrated with a powerful online components search engine where you can query real-time components information like stock, price across global suppliers, and other useful information like lifecycle, alternatives, datasheet, images...

The tool is free with some limitation of users count and storage space. But it could be enough for small company and freelancer. The Pro version remove the limits and pricing is much cheaper than its' competitors in the same market.

Very powerful bill of materials management software

Comments: Product lifecycle management has become much easier with this intelligent software. Its web-based and client-based search feature allows me to search for a wide range of electronic parts, including their prices, alternatives and lifecycle trends. Its support of BOM import/export and online purchase also saves me a lot of work. The free version has a storage limit, but I find it fairly enough for individuals/small businesses.

It is intelligent
