Manufacturing ERP developer ECI Software Solutions has struck an alliance Paperless Parts that will offer “seamless integrations” between the business management software and the estimating/quoting technology for job shops and contract manufacturers. The new partners stated they will offer their joint customers a way to streamline operations, reduce manual data entry in multiple systems, and deliver accurate quotes quickly and efficiently.
Cloud-based Paperless Parts applies a “powerful geometric analysis engine” to locate activities that can be improved, to help job-shop manufacturers modernize operations and reduce time spent on estimating, quoting, and order processing.
Paperless Parts recently struck a similar alliance with Cetec ERP, a platform that lets users track, run reports on open purchase orders, see what vendors are owed, and other tracking tasks.
Announcing the new alliance, the partners explain that integrating Paperless Parts functions into ECI's ERP solutions will help manufacturers “to replace hours of manual steps in the estimating and quoting process.”
Jason Ray, CEO and co-founder of Paperless Parts, said: "As we look at how the manufacturing industry is continuing to evolve, embracing new technologies to improve profitability and streamline operations, we know that this partnership will be a big part of driving value for existing and future ECI and Paperless Parts customers."
The integrated functions are available now for users of ECI’s JobBoss “quote to cash” order-management program, and a supported integration between Paperless Parts and JobBOSS² (with both cloud and on-premises availability) is scheduled to be available later this year. Other ERP products will be integrated as the alliance continues.
