Microsoft is then the OEM. While an OEM is primarily interested in its relationship with its professional clients, it is sometimes possible for individuals to purchase items directly from the OEM. For example, if you are someone who knows a lot about cars and has the ability to do repairs yourself instead of going to a mechanic, you can buy this silencer or a new radio directly from the manufacturer. As a result, consumer relations are an increasingly important area for companies that may otherwise be considered OEMs. A first OEM is a company that manufactures parts that can then be marketed to another producer. For example, when Company A manufactures cables that can be used as telephone chargers and Company B manufactures mobile phones that supply Company A cables to purchase their phones, Company A is an OEM. Company A will manufacture the cables according to branding and company B specifications. While Company B will ultimately focus on a relationship with the consumer, Company A is focusing as an OEM on a B2B (business to business) relationship; the consumer is another business. .
