Altium design secret 24: Adding an ODBC based company parts database to the supply chain

For organisations with a system already in place for managing part procurement (ERP, MRP, etc.), it's hugely beneficial to integrate that database into Altium Designer's Supplier Link system. This video shows how, using an ODBC connection, users can connect directly to a company parts database and seamlessly integrate that data into their Supply Chain. An Altium Vault Server is used to manage the connection, allowing true centralized Supply Chain management.
