Atlanta, GA, March 19, 2008 - (Quickparts) - (http://www.quickparts.com) the leading online provider of custom manufactured plastic and metal parts, announced the launch of its next generation QuickQuote® Online storefront to make it even easier to buy everything from rapid prototypes to production parts and tooling.
Quickparts dramatically simplifies and accelerates the traditional process of quoting and purchasing custom-designed parts. It is the first patented web-based process providing the product development community with a fully automated storefront.
This next generation of QuickQuote now gives the user greater ability to: create multiple quotes from multiple processes using their new shopping cart, view images and dimensions of the files they want to quote, and utilize the new lead time calendar that allows them to choose when their part ships. Plus they can easily edit, delete, print and email quotes from within the interface.
“We are committed to meeting the needs of product designers,” stated Ronald L. Hollis P.E., President and CEO of Quickparts. “Our customer-centered market research indicated that the top two needs of product designers are first, a wider range of options for prices, materials, and finishes, and second, fast turn-around time for quotes and parts. The new Quickparts storefront directly addresses both of those needs.”
QuickQuote analyzes an uploaded 3D CAD file and provides an automated price quote instantly. Users only need to login, upload their files, and select their process, quantity, material and finish. When an order is placed, a Quickparts Project Manager will call to ensure the customers’ expectations are met from initial contact to final delivery of custom parts.
“In today's competitive product development environments, time saved is directly related to dollars saved,” Mr. Hollis concluded.
Quickparts provides custom manufacturing services for engineers and designers who want to create plastic and metal parts from 3D CAD (computer-aided design) models. Using patented QuickQuote technology, Quickparts is able to provide product designers with an ‘instant online quote’ for the manufacturing of their custom parts from prototype to production.
Quickparts custom manufacturing services include: Rapid Prototypes (SLA, SLS, FDM, PolyJet),Cast Urethanes, Injection Mold Tooling and Parts, Sheet Metal Parts, and CNC Machined Parts.
