What is Ciiva?

Electronic products often contain hundreds of electronic parts, sourcing from various global electronic manufacturers and distributors. BOM modification can be made at various stages throughout the life-cycle, often without changing original hardware design data, such as schematics or layout. For many companies, this can be an error prone manual change to a spreadsheet or design document, with no record of when they were made or why they were made or by whom. Many small and medium size enterprises are still using Excel spreadsheet for BOM management, which is not optimal and can lead to a variety of well documented problems

BOM SaaS

Reviewed 7 years ago

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.

An affordable cloud solution to manage your bill of materials

Reviewed 8 years ago

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,...

Full of bugs and unsolved problems

Reviewed 6 years ago

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.

A good tool for electronic design companies and ems providers

Reviewed 7 years ago

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.

Very powerful bill of materials management software

Reviewed 8 years ago

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.
