service program


Finding the parts to overcome an immediate shortage solves today’s problems. A custom supply chain solution positions you to solve sourcing and obsolescence problems for the future. At CSE, we’ve built a platform with the reach, flexibility, and support services that empowers our teams to achieve both short-term and long-term outcomes.


Excess inventory management is a common challenge. When inventory becomes a problem, you need a reliable partner with a strong global footprint and the ability to maximize resale. We thrive on making the connection between you and our network of customers. Creating markets is what we do.

Common inventory challenges

In today’s fast-pace, competitive world, excess inventory challenges stem from everyday business challenges – slow moving inventory, unexpected design change, canceled builds, datacenter decommissioning, customer returns, or demand/technology shifts.

Flexible solutions

Partnering with CSE, you will leverage our experience, analytics platform, and global presence. We have several financial models to provide flexibility, control, and transparency, and to drive maximum value recovery. We offer flexible solutions designed to convert excess inventory into maximum ROI:

  • Outright Purchase – Quickest return via line item or entire lots

  • Consignment – Maximize value recovery over time, leveraging real-time customer visibility and reporting

  • Custom Solutions – Programs designed for specific needs


How can you best manage risk for your business? Our sales professionals answer that question by getting to know your business and your definition of value, and then designing an intelligent, scalable supply chain solution. You make earlier and better decisions, reduce lead times, control costs, and even create new revenue opportunities. It all adds up to a business partnership that leverages best practice sharing and transparency.

Inventory hubbing

You’re focused on your core business processes and capabilities, which makes it difficult to also constantly monitor market trends. Our deep experience and sourcing platform enable us to speculate and buy parts before shortages drive up prices. You will have the quality parts you need, when you need them, and reduce costs. And, you’ll have supply assurance during these times of increased obsolescence.

Excess stock

Keeping stockpiles under control and getting the fastest return on investment is paramount to profitability. The custom programs we build for you begin with discovery, including evaluation of excess as well as your specific business operations, and determining the best method for disposition. Ultimately, we implement a tailored strategy maximizing value recovery.

Last-time buy financing

Suppliers discontinuing a product puts you in a real bind. It can be financially painful to make a bulk purchase in advance of actual need, and storing them takes up warehouse space better used for immediate supply needs. Last-Time Buy Financing with CSE Capital Solutions funds purchasing large quantities of essential products that are being discontinued in advance, so you don’t have to. You enjoy the security of having inventory with the convenience of making installments aligned to projected use.  These solutions also cover costs associated with the holding and distribution of the products.

Keep inventory down without jeopardizing production, fill gaps, and quickly pivot to capture cost savings

In a way, every program for our customers is custom, because each business is different. What’s consistent is that the solution begins with market intelligence and ends with better inventory control. Based on trends, transactional data, and industry information, our commodity management team provides unique and actionable intelligence to secure your supply chain, ensure quality, balance inventory to need, and control costs.
