BOSTON — Paperless Parts, the leading sales and quoting software platform for job shops and contract manufacturers, today announced their live integration with Infor VISUALⓇ, a complete ERP solution for order-driven manufacturing companies. The integration enables Paperless Parts and Infor VISUALⓇ customers to benefit from seamless communication between the two systems. Manufacturers can now save time in the quoting process and avoid manual data entry into more than one system.
ERP systems are great at facilitating orders once they are placed, scheduling jobs, and inventory management. However, they typically do not offer a more automated solution for returning quotes quickly and consistently in order to win more business. This is where Paperless Parts excels. The integration extends the functionality of Infor VISUALⓇ while utilizing the ERP’s valuable underlying components, making the system even more robust in its functionality.
“Infor is a widely respected global provider of ERP systems that has enabled custom part manufacturers to manage their businesses for decades. We are excited to offer an integration into Infor VISUALⓇ for those who adopt Paperless Parts’ technology as an enhancement to their existing Infor systems,” said Jason Ray, Co-Founder and CEO of Paperless Parts. “This integration allows them to securely store RFQ files, automate steps in the estimating process, streamline internal and external communication, and ultimately, return faster quotes so that more orders are placed and facilitated through Infor VISUALⓇ.”
The integration passes information related to: customers, parts, work orders, requirements, and orders between Paperless Parts and Infor VISUALⓇ. The integration between Paperless Parts and Infor VISUALⓇ provides manufacturers with the flexibility to customize the quoting process to their specific business processes. Metalcraft Technologies, Inc., the manufacturer of choice for aviation structural assemblies and components, is leading the way by becoming the first manufacturer to deploy this integration.
“We have successfully relied on Infor VISUALⓇ for 11 years, and felt it was time to take our quoting and analytics to the next level. We chose Paperless Parts because we wanted more visibility into our customer and quoting data,” said Jeremy Dustin, Senior Manager of Customer Relations at Metalcraft. “With Infor VISUALⓇ and Paperless Parts integrated, we are able to make better business decisions for our company. The support from Paperless Parts with this custom solution has been excellent, and we are excited to be the big fish in a little pond as the first manufacturer benefiting from the integration.”
