DEXCO Machining & Fabrication Partners with Paperless Parts to Optimize Quoting Process and Accelerate Growth

Woman-owned North Carolina-based precision manufacturer consistently doubling YoY revenue looks to continue its trajectory with modern quoting technology.

May 6, 2024

Burlington, NCDEXCO Machining & Fabrication, a leader in sheet metal and precision machining services in North Carolina, today announces a strategic investment in Paperless Parts, the industry’s top-rated quoting and collaboration platform. After doubling its revenue two years in a row, DEXCO sought a solution to streamline its quoting process to handle the increase in RFQ volume.

Paperless Parts will enable DEXCO to spend less time and resources on manual quoting tasks and allocate more energy toward scaling the business. Key platform features that facilitate efficiency include an AI-powered quote setup workflow, automatic BOM (bill of materials) generation, centralized part viewer, design for manufacturability (DFM) warnings, secure file redaction, and seamless vendor collaboration.

Paperless Parts’ proprietary geometric part analysis technology was another attractive feature for DEXCO: “We noticed a shift in the industry with more OEMs providing 3D models,” explains DEXCO President & Co-Owner Shannon Huffman. “Paperless Parts will help us quote significantly faster and more precisely from our customers’ .STEP files.”

Previously, co-owner David Huffman handled all of DEXCO’s quoting activities. “I saw that our quote volume was doubling, and knew we needed a way to simplify our RFQ process so we could handle the demand while continuing to deliver top-notch customer service,” says David.

As DEXCO simplifies its quoting process with Paperless Parts, Shannon and David can future-proof their business and offload quoting responsibilities to junior estimators to focus on more strategic areas of the business.

Paperless Parts also integrates with DEXCO’s ERP system, JobBOSS. The systems will soon be integrated bi-directionally to eliminate the need for manual data entry, reduce human error, and ensure that production information is always up to date.

Jason Ray, Co-Founder and CEO of Paperless Parts adds, “DEXCO’s commitment to innovation and customer service makes them an excellent addition to our community. We look forward to supporting their continued success in the industry.”
