Lakeview Industries Chooses Paperless Parts to Accelerate Quote Turnaround and Increase Collaboration Throughout the Quoting Process

May 30, 2023

Paperless Parts’ platform enables Lakeview to deliver consistent, timely quotes and collaborate seamlessly from quote to order.

Carver, MN – Lakeview Industries, a custom component manufacturer that makes parts for a wide variety of industries including automotive, agriculture, construction, medical devices and more, today announced its partnership with Paperless Parts: the industry’s premier quoting and estimating software.

With Paperless Parts, Lakeview will be able to drive scalability across its estimating team, allowing for a consistent approach to pricing, the ability to quickly ramp new estimators, and improve quote delivery times to its customers. In addition, Paperless Parts will enable better prioritization of engineering resources through internal collaboration tools, centralized and searchable documentation of all quote packages and supporting files, and the ability to quickly view and use previously-quoted parts as a starting point for new quotes.

“We chose to partner with Paperless Parts because they really understand the ins and outs of the manufacturing business and the complexities that estimators and shop owners struggle with on a daily basis,” said President, John Schwanke. “Tools that aren’t specifically designed for shops like ours simply can’t do what they can. We invest in tools like Paperless Parts because we’re committed to delivering the best customer experience possible, and we want to work with companies that truly embrace that mission.”

With Paperless Parts, once an order is won, Lakeview will be able to export data from Paperless Parts directly into its Global Shop ERP system, eliminating the need for manual double data entry, which was previously wasting their team’s valuable time and leaving them vulnerable to human error.

“It’s an honor to be working with an industry leader like Lakeview. They are synonymous in the region with excellence in precision manufacturing, and it’s exciting that Paperless Parts will be a critical part of their growth plans,” said Jason Ray, Founder and CEO, Paperless Parts.
