PennEngineering has announced a new strategic partnership with Paperless Parts, a cloud-based platform that has revolutionized the quoting and sales process for sheet-metal fabricators.
By streamlining fastener recognition and component ordering processes with the Paperless Parts platform, PennEngineering’s sheet metal fabrication partners can simplify the application of PEM fasteners into their customers’ assemblies, increasing quote throughput and accuracy.
A digital future
The Paperless Parts technology replaces hours of manual estimating for sheet-metal fabricators by automating steps in the quoting process.
The system analyzes sheet-metal fabrication component and assembly RFQ files to generate bills of material, identify bends, holes, thickness irregularities, and other details.
Addition, the system reviews all file designs for manufacturability issues early in the quoting process.
“It is an honor to collaborate with PennEngineering to make a positive impact on sheet metal fabricators,” said Jason Ray, CEO of Paperless Parts. “This is another step in automating an analog process, making our mutual customers more efficient.”
Through this partnership, the companies will release a technical solution that will confirm pricing and availability of PEM products.
“For 80 years, PennEngineering has been transforming the global fastener market,” said Pete Beecherl, CTO of PennEngineering. “Our partnership with Paperless Parts is one more example of our customer focused mindset. It reflects our mission to provide customers the data and tools needed to grow and improve their business as we move to a more digital future.”
The launch of PennEngineering and Paperless Parts collaboration is slated for late 2021.
