Integration with ECI’s Manufacturing Business Management Solutions and Paperless Parts’ Estimating and Quoting Platform Further Streamlines Operations for Job Shops and Contract Manufacturers

ECI Software Solutions, a leader in cloud-based business management solutions, today announced a new strategic alliance with Paperless Parts, the leading estimating and quoting software for job shops and contract manufacturers. Through this alliance, the two companies will team together to offer joint customers seamless integrations between ECI’s manufacturing ERP business management solutions and Paperless Parts’ quoting platform, helping customers to streamline operations, reduce manual data entry in multiple systems and turn around accurate quotes quickly and efficiently. Support for the JobBOSS/Paperless Parts integration is the first to be released under the terms of this partnership and is available to customers today. A supported integration between Paperless Parts and JobBOSS², both cloud and on-prem, is scheduled to be available before the end of the year with other ERP products to follow.

Now that the pandemic has subsided, the manufacturing industry is building back fast to meet growing customer demands and face economic challenges head-on. To do so effectively, manufacturers are turning to their business management solutions to equip themselves with tools that will make their jobs easier. As an end-to-end business management solution focused on helping small- to medium-sized manufacturers gain real-time operational visibility to drive business growth, ECI’s manufacturing ERP solutions offer everything they need to run their business – from scheduling and purchasing to shipping and accounting. By integrating Paperless Parts into a full suite of functionalities, manufacturers will be able to replace hours of manual steps in the estimating and quoting process.

Paperless Parts is a secure, ITAR registered cloud-native software platform that enables manufacturers to grow revenue, diversify their customer base, reduce quoting errors and better utilize internal resources. Paperless Parts supports all manufacturing types, including milling and production processes, sheet metal fabrication and additive manufacturing. With automatic geometric analysis, each part file is analyzed to show part features and inspected for potential manufacturability warnings, saving shops from missing costly errors. Paperless Parts is trusted by manufacturers in every industry, including aerospace, national defense, medical devices and technology. Smart RFQ forms integrate with existing customer websites and support both 3D models and 2D print requests. All customer and quote information is automatically entered and organized in one centralized dashboard.

“We are honored to work alongside Paperless Parts to offer job shops even more seamless functionalities within their day-to-day operations,” said Matt Heerey, President of the Manufacturing Division at ECI. “More often than not, we are seeing small- to medium-sized manufacturers strained for resources due to the flurry of economic challenges we all face today. By optimizing their business management solutions to be even more all-encompassing, we are setting these job shops up for optimal success.”

“From day one, we knew the best way to drive value for customers is to seamlessly integrate into their entire workflow, which is why we’ve spent so much time developing robust integrations with industry leaders like ECI,” said Jason Ray, CEO and Co-Founder of Paperless Parts. “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.”
