Pros: Paperless Parts' auto quoting system is a powerful tool. We are all able to customize, analyze, and quote all of our processes (additive, CNC, Cast Urethane, Assembly, Toolmaking, Injection Molding all in a centralized cloud-based system.

My company conducts business with an array of customers that are in the Aerospace, Defense, Medical Device, and Commercial markets. The fact that Paperless parts has secure file transfers services and is ITAR compliant allows us to cater to all our customers equally and our quoting process is consistent throughout all the markets.

The ability to instantly upload files (in several formats) and turn them into quotes has changed our approach of how to conduct our day to day business. We are regularly winning jobs that typically would have lost because of a lengthy, manual quoting process.

From a sales perspective, Paperless Parts makes it easy to track and follow up with customers. It was easy to develop an effective follow-up the process to help win more business. The analytics feature is excellent to help forecast and identify trends in all the markets, processes, and internally too.

If you are a company that manufactures something and you are not using Paperless Parts, you should!

Cons: My number one complaint about Paperless Parts is that it wasn't available earlier! Their services saved my company ample time and money!

Overall: It was a no-brainer to work with Paperless Parts. They are one of the most driven and responsive teams of engineers in the manufacturing field. Paperless Parts understands how to approach your unique problems and help find sensible solutions that yield positive results. Paperless Parts has provided my outfit a tailored, customized software solution that sets us apart from other service bureaus. Their customer support is unsurpassed.

Pros: Makes it easier to increase profit margins through accurate material and time estimation. It also has automatic mark up and faster lead time calculations to help capture more revenue.

Presentation to the client or customer is very professional.

It has the ability to read and interpret 3D models and point out areas of more difficulty. Makes quoting go much faster.

Streamlines the capture and tracking of customer data. No more misplaced drawings or using the wrong revision.

Makes it easy for customers to place RFQ's and orders.

Can be integrated into shop's work flow.

Frees up people to do more important work.

Tech support is responsive.

Integrates with Quick Books

Cons: Setup takes time, but they do take time with you to do it. You will need to spend time tweaking the results to match your business model. However, once it is done, it just works.

Overall: I really needed a way for customers to easily submit RFQ's and place orders. We needed something other than net 30 for payment terms. They provide a great credit card interface as well.

Had some issues at the beginning because I couldn't get the quoting to work as I wanted. However, they were very helpful and they have been continuously making improvements that has made it really easy to use.

They have pricing formulas and a sophisticated back end that can read 3D models and determine complexity to a good extent. They are improving the ability to "see" areas that will be hard to machine and present that to you.

I really like this software, it allows everyone in the shop to see what is coming in and helps with scheduling as well.

Cons: I wish I could say, but nothing comes to mind...

Overall: Reprentative and the the entire Paperless Parts team have become part of InterPRO's extended team. The value we place on our partnership with them is impossible to quantify. They have deep industry experience that they gladly share with us to help our business grow. They continue to demonstrate a strong desire and willingness to listen to our needs. They work hard to understand how we use their software and learn how it can improve to meet our needs. They really care about our success, and we're very glad to see their success grow. I highly recommend Paperless Parts.

Pros: The software works!

It is extremely simple to use but very powerful. Our customers are constantly impressed with how fast we can quote, how easy it is for them to use, the depth of valuable detail provided, and the overall professional look.

I've been in contract manufacturing for over 35 years and I've seen many opportunities go to the wayside because it took too many man hours to quote and too long to get the quote to the customer. As a small startup company it is critical that we can constantly add new equipment and services to our portfolio. Paperless Parts makes it simple for us to add those new options to our quotes and quickly start offering them to our customers.

Cons: I can't really say there is any issues that come to mind. I could constantly ask them for added features so the software handles more of our process needs but I know it wasn't designed to be an MRP/ERP system. It does what it was designed to do, automate the quoting process.

Overall: The team at Paperless Parts have become an integral part of our company and a true extension of our team. They all are eager to help and guide you, on best practices for quoting, and customizing things to your specific needs.

The Paperless Parts team is highly energetic, very personable, extremely knowledgeable, and truly care.

Pros: Paperless Parts quoting platform comes with a dedicated team to implement the product, and they are always reachable through the web chat for questions post implementation. They have always been there to support us. Their platform is also ITAR registered and they are NIST compliant. We were looking for a platform which has the same cyber security posture as Tronix3D, and it gives us the ability to meet or exceed the military cyber security requirements for our business.

Cons: The max file upload size is ~50mb. We have had a few STL files which have not been up loadable because they exceeded the max file size.

Overall: Before we engaged Paperless Parts, we were using a few quoting methods including an excel spreadsheet. We were referred to them by another service bureau, and after implementing Paperless Parts quoting platform it was absolutely the best decision we could have made.

Tronix3D is serving both private and public sectors, and shopping for quoting software was dependent upon several key aspects, including the pricing, customer service, security posture, and integrity of the company. Paperless Parts exceeded all of these and one of the key aspects which was a deal breaker for most quoting platforms was the ITAR and NIST compliance. They allow us to serve the military market and regard protection of the digital twin a significant concern.

We have been using their platform for a few month now and we could not have made a better choice. Implementation was very successful and the team assigned to us was able to take our needs and make them happen. Paperless has multiple members with diverse backgrounds and there is always someone who can answer your question.

We are also using Paperless Parts for our website and online marketing. I would highly recommend not only the quoting platform but their marketing services.

Pros: *Ease of use

*Rapid adaption rate--both inside the shop and with customers

*Monthly improvements/new features

*Exceptional value add

Cons: Early releases were more limited in scope, but the Paperless team has been overwhelming supportive in taking our feedback and incorporating it into the next release.

Overall: The Paperless Parts team is made of up dynamic individuals who "get it". They know the pressures manufacturers are under and have crafted a tool and experience that is tailored for shops like us.

The Paperless Parts tool was rapidly adapted by the team, which is not always to case with new software packages, and improved the shop's workflow. Ultimately all the features have added to our company's value-proposition and increased revenue.

Pros: The software is easy to use and allowed us to reduced our "time to quote" significantly. With this tool we can get quotes in front of customers faster increasing the chance that we will win the business. The expediting feature is also a major benefit as this allows us to easily communicate expediting options to our customers and capitalize on our ability to turn parts around quickly

Cons: We do not currently have this software integrated with our ERP system so there are some redundant data entries. I believe that there are some ERP systems that will integrate but unfortunately ours is not one of them.

Pros: The design is flawless. It's very sleek-looking and fairly simple to use on the customer's end of things.

Cons: A LOT of clicking of the mouse. It takes an average of about 10 clicks of the mouse to get a single part generated in a quote. That can be time consuming and exhausting at times.

Overall: It's nice having the reports generated each month. They provide very useful insights for our company. We have been able to realize that our customer base is in decent shape, and where we could use improvement (i.e. more bandwidth of customers). PP has been great to work with. I feel like our company truly matters to all of the people I've worked with at the company. The staff at PP truly value my opinion and get to the bottom of any issues I've had.

Pros: This software give us a very professional qutoing system that is outward facing. It is very polished and easy to use. We have gotten very positive feedback, without asking for it, from our customers about our quoting system.

Cons: That it does not link the transactions with our Quickbooks software. That is something that is in the works to be rolled out.

Overall: If I have any issues or have questions they are just a quick phone call or email away. The best experience is that when I have an improvement suggestion, they listen and many time they make the update to their system.
