Tempo Advantage provides PCBA discounts based on either (1) total SMT placement count or (2) design ramp engagement. On any given order, you may qualify for one of the discount programs described below, receiving whichever one provides the greater discount.
ADVANTAGE PROGRAM 1:
TOTAL SMT PLACEMENT1
The more business you do with Tempo, the bigger the loyalty program reward.

ADVANTAGE PROGRAM 2:
DESIGN RAMP ENGAGEMENT2
Tempo is your partner from prototype to production — try us out, and reap the benefits.
For projects that ramp with Tempo throughout the prototyping/NPI process—from prototype through engineering validation, product validation, and rate production run (where applicable), Tempo will discount labor pricing across all eligible designs. The effective discount will be noted on the Tempo-provided price quote.

Q: Is there a cost for joining Tempo Advantage?
A: No. The program is free and offered exclusively to our top customers as our way of saying Thanks. It’s our version of a frequent flyer program.
Q: Do I have to commit to a specific number of builds or a specific amount of spend to join?
A: No. Tempo Advantage rewards you for the orders you do place with us. You place the orders, we’ll keep track of your progress toward the next discount threshold and redeem that discount as soon as you’ve earned it.
Q: My orders are likely to rise and fall over the course of a year. Under Advantage Program 1: Total SMT Placement, will I be penalized in any way?
A: No. Under Advantage Program 1: Total SMT Placement, we compare the aggregate SMT Placements in your orders over a Half Year Period. If the number of total placements in any Half Year Period rises above the aggregate SMT Placements to meet the thresholds outlined above, you achieve the discount.
