Whether that’s calling us up, ordering online, procuring products via punchout, or one of other quick and easy order placement options, it’s our responsibility to make the process seamless. We know there’s no one preference for ordering so that’s why we’ve developed numerous avenues for you to find the product you need!

Check out how YOU can take advantage of our four ordering options!


Thanks to our sophisticated eCommerce site we offer seamless opportunities for you to find the products and services that will enhance your business.

Thanks to our day one customer service mentality, this front-line team will make sure the order process is seamless and efficient. Give our team a call today at 888-920-5572.


In addition to providing outstanding service over the phone, our customer support team is responsible for monitoring incoming quotes and customer communication.

Standard Electric offers punchout services to customers, making the procurement process even easier. Using punchout, buyers can make purchases from the Standard Electric eCommerce site through their punchout portal. This helps when making purchases from a large catalog with many SKUs, when dealing with products that require constant price updates, and customers making frequent transactions.

Electronic Data Interchange (EDI)

EDI allows for more secure and accurate control of information exchanges. By integrating with an ERP system, EDI allows documents to be electronically transferred automatically and reduces the need for manual entry. This promotes operational efficiency while cutting back on postage and labor costs.


Vendor Managed Inventory (VMI)

Also known as Inventory Management, VMI eases the weight of product procurement, stocking, and SKU management for the business and factory floor. By establishing a VMI account, you’ll work directly with Standard Electric and your Account Manager to identify products for the stock, minimum and maximum levels, and bin locations for our VMI drivers to replenish the needed product.

Our VMI drivers visit businesses every day to scan and replenish stock based on the levels outlined, saving companies time and money on ordering costs and overhead stock. This is great peace of mind for companies seeking to stay on top of the procurement process.

Standard Electric understands there is no one way to do business so we’ve made it easy to meet our customers however is best for them. If you have a project in mind or need suggestions for how your operations can be taken to the next level, let us know!
