Paperless Parts, Plex Systems Partnership Makes It Easier to Estimate Jobs
The Paperless Parts software will be part of the Plex Smart Manufacturing Platform, enabling Plex users to price jobs faster and more accurately, better service customers and grow their businesses.
Paperless Parts, a provider of sales and quoting software for job shops and contract manufacturers, is partnering with Plex Systems to give Plex users direct access to its quoting platform. The Paperless Parts software will be part of the Plex Smart Manufacturing Platform, enabling Plex users to price jobs faster and more accurately, better service customers and grow their businesses, the company says.
The quoting capabilities will be seamlessly integrated into Plex’s comprehensive manufacturing platform. The Plex Partner Program connects manufacturers to experts and technologies to help transform their businesses. Paperless Parts was accepted into the program because it provides a secure, cloud-based sales, estimating and quoting platform for custom part manufacturers — thus extending the capabilities of the Plex’s Smart Manufacturing Platform.
“At a time when manufacturers are looking at ways to use technology to operate more efficiently and grow, we see tremendous value in welcoming Paperless Parts into our partner ecosystem,” says Brad Hafer, group vice president, corporate development at Plex Systems. “Together, we will unleash new and better ways for our mutual customers to estimate complex jobs and win more without disrupting their existing tech stack or overarching workflows.”
Benefits of the quoting platform include analytics that enable users to easily analyze and reference all historical sales and part data to understand win rates, risk and opportunities for sales, and estimating optimization. The system is also said to provide faster, more consistent quotes with a centralized quoting process that leverages Paperless Parts’ configurable geometric pricing engine.
The company says the quoting platform enables users to store, access and share all quote and job-related files in a secure cloud that meets everchanging cybersecurity and ITAR requirements. Users can also view and collaborate in the context of any file format, including all 2D and 3D CAD files from any device securely logged into the platform.
