The CNC Industry is in state of a dramatic and unstoppable change, and digitization is the name of the game – for both Buyers and CNC Manufacturers. With the New Order and Quote Management System from ORDERFOX.com, Buyers and Manufacturers can significantly optimize and simplify their processes to become more efficient.
ORDERFOX.com launched on June 1st, 2017 and to date has grown to become the leading online global Marketplace for CNC companies within the metal, wood, plastics and 3D printing sectors. Buyers get instant access to available CNC capacity, while Manufacturers find immediately available RFQs for CNC work. With the launch of the new and innovative Order and Quote Management System, capacity optimization has never been easier, thus saving companies both time and money.
Added value for Buyers: Order Management System for complete control of all orders details
On ORDERFOX.com, Buyers can request quotes, organize and communicate all in one place. With the new Order Management System, Buyers can both manage the necessary details and communicate quickly and easily with Manufacturers regarding open topics. By utilizing the new Messenger, both Buyers and Manufacturers have direct access to each other in real-time. The Messenger enables not only direct communication, but also the ability to upload and download files for ease of process and increased efficiency. In addition, the In-App Notifications ensure that no messages will ever be lost, so say goodbye to the infamous flood of e-mails! Now, Buyers can respond to current messages and information instantly at any time – and ORDERFOX.com can even do it for them in certain situations. Within these new ORDERFOX.com functions, one key advantage is that the platform can automatically notify all Production Partners when the RFQ has been awarded to another member company, thus making sure all members are 100% up-to-date, while keeping future lines of communication open. Customizable tables ensure that the Buyer only sees the data they need in their overview – for example, the status of the Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) process. To provide more added value, Buyers can use Blacklists and Exclusive Partner Lists to control exactly who is able to view RFQs, and who is not.
The perfect solution for CNC Manufacturers: easier Quote Management for all information
With the innovative Quote Management System from ORDERFOX.com, CNC Manufacturers have an organized overview of all quotes they have provided at all times. No status is missed - regardless of whether CNC Manufacturers are working individually or in teams. With the In-App Notifications, CNC Manufacturers have full control of all quote communication at all times. The Messenger enables direct communication with the Buyer’s contact person for questions, and quotes can be sent with just one click – and withdrawn just as easily. To speed up the process, ORDERFOX.com sends automatic notifications when a Buyer accepts or rejects a quote. With all submitted quotes being managed and viewed centrally, and the use of customizable tables, CNC Manufacturers are always able to view the most important information at a glance.
