Who in CCJ’s audience would benefit from PeAks?

  • Engineers can look for parts that may be obsolete and parts may still be available through multiple sources through Paragon.

  • Maintenance can utilize PeAks for emergent issues for parts that may also not be supported by OEM or distributor lead times during outages/work windows.
