Paperless Parts, the leading sales and quoting software platform for job shops and contract manufacturers, today announced a partnership with Plex Systems. The partnership will give Plex users access to the features of the Paperless Quoting platform directly in the Plex Smart Manufacturing Platform, allowing them to price jobs faster and more accurately, better service customers and grow their businesses.
Plex’s partner ecosystem connects manufacturers to industry-leading experts and technologies to help transform their businesses. Paperless Parts was accepted into the Plex Partner Program as a solutions partner because the company provides the market’s leading secure, cloud-based sales, estimating and quoting platform for custom part manufacturers — extending existing capabilities of the Smart Manufacturing Platform.
“We are continually looking to identify and engage partners who offer unique solutions to not only extend our platform, but also support our customers on their paths to smart manufacturing,” said Brad Hafer, Group Vice President, Corporate Development at Plex Systems. “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. 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 Paperless Quoting platform include:
- Analytics – Easily analyze and reference all historical sales and part data to understand win rates, risk and opportunities for sales and estimating optimization
- Speed – Provide faster, more consistent quotes with a centralized quoting process that leverages Paperless Parts’ configurable geometric pricing engine, which helps generate more revenue by retaining existing customers and attracting new business
- Security – Store, access and share all quote and job-related files in the most secure cloud that meets everchanging cybersecurity and ITAR requirements
- Collaboration – 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
“Manufacturing software systems are often the lifeblood of any successful manufacturing operation, and Paperless Parts is like an injection of oxygen into them that will help keep new jobs flowing in,” said Jason Ray, co-founder and CEO, Paperless Parts. “Plex shares our vision of smart manufacturing and the need for innovative, pioneering tools to make it a reality. For this reason, we are confident Plex customers will see tremendous value from our solutions working together in tandem to help manufacturers embrace Industry 4.0 and grow their businesses.”
