A French company today launched a free online search engine for hardware components in the UK. IT-Xchange.com is a virtual meeting place for distributors and resellers, where resellers can source hardware. The Paris-based outfit claims its service will speed up computer hardware buying. By typing in just the product reference code, users are able to find where the product is available and at what price. The service is free to both resellers and distributors. Of course, the disadvantage is that resellers cannot barter for a price, such as when they on the phone to a salesperson at a distributor. The service started in Europe in late August, and currently gets around 150 hits per day. More than 560 distributors have signed up to use the service in Europe. Those include Westcoast, European Micro, Gamma Group and Icom UK. The site also offers credit ratings on suppliers and resellers and an IT news service.®
