  • Product development cycles are shorter
  • Part buyers go to the internet for fast quotes and short lead times
  • Buyers expect quotes in hours and parts in days without a conversation
  • Top part manufacturers are investing in building web based software quoting, ordering, and design feedback tools to connect with buyers on the internet
  • One of the first to use these tools was Protolabs, who now has $400M+ in revenue
