RapidDirect, a rapid prototyping company in China, has launched its new online instant quote platform for rapid prototypes. This technology deployed at app.rapiddirect.com offers instant quotes for several prototyping services. The instant quote platform works by analyzing design data upon the upload of CAD files.
It then automatically generates a quotation upon which customers can place orders and confirm the details of the offers to receive rapid prototypes. With RapidDirect's instant quoting engine, manufacturing companies can now receive quotes any time, any day.
“We understand that there is currently a big gap in the rapid manufacturing space in terms of quotes. The need to shorten the product development cycle and reduce investment risks while saving costs continues to increase by the day,” says Leon Huang, CEO of RapidDirect. “Prototyping customers find it difficult to get price quotes of multiple manufacturers in a short period for price comparison. Our new online quoting system aims at bridging the gap between physical and digital production systems.”
Instant Quote Platform
RapidDirect's new quoting system allows users to receive immediate real-time pricing information, materials and finish options to finish their orders. This new platform was launched to assist in the streamlining of the company's operations. This allows users to order various parts more quickly while engineers have more time for other manufacturing projects.
RapidDirect offers a quoting system that allows clients to download, manage, and edit all their quotes in one place. With rapid quotes, users can see lead times and bulk prices upfront. Also, there is an instant comparison of prices across materials and technologies.
Manufacturing clients can also place orders and the production of parts online without logging on to multiple tracking platforms. RapidDirect's instant quote platform integrates automated DfM feedback into the workflow. Users can easily make adjustments at any point in your order. Users also have access to automated email notifications of every stage of part production until delivery.
RapidDirect stores your 3D models and designs on a backed-up server, which is only accessible to project teams and management.
