There has been a marked trend in how the industry deals with requests for quotations (RFQ). Financesonline reported that 80% of buyers now place their orders via websites.
That's an important change. The same source analyzed the impact of COVID-19 and found that 97% of buyers are willing to continue to make their RFQs and orders online even post-pandemic.
Keeping up with this trend and continuing to provide premium service to our All Metals Fabricating customers led our company to find the best solution.

Paperless Parts is a superior software that offers a secure, cloud-based platform for RFQs. It was developed by a team of experts with backgrounds in manufacturing, software, national defense, and mechanical engineering. The objective of Paperless Parts is to make RFQs for manufacturing businesses more streamlined and accessible.
The developers of Paperless Parts went out to hundreds of manufacturing operations and spoke to thousands of owners and operators to determine how best to serve their needs. They examined 3D parts files and blueprints, and went into front offices to determine the challenges the staff face dealing with RFQs.
They took this information back to the job shop (yes, not a garage, like Microsoft or Amazon) and sat down with the engineers, manufacturing design experts, and software experts. Through this collaboration of people who genuinely care about the manufacturing industry, they came up with Paperless Parts RFQ software.
