Due to the coronavirus crisis, Orderfox is extending its free access to the platform until May 31st, 2020. A digital platform can significantly increase efficiency and save CNC purchasers a considerable amount of research work. With the help of digital sourcing, delivery delays can be reduced and risks in general minimized.
Due to the current crisis, the existence of numerous CNC companies is at stake. The COVID-19 outbreak has highlighted the vulnerability of complex global manufacturing supply chains. To make matters worse, the CNC industry heavily relies on on-time deliveries. Delivery delays of just one day can create gaps in the entire supply chain, which can lead to exploding costs, enormous sales losses or even a complete standstill.
Business for many companies has been delayed or halted as a result of the pandemic, industrial trade fairs have been canceled and tens of thousands of workers around the world are in quarantine at home. The crisis may limit many production facilities, but the demand for components is still high. COVID-19 was a wake-up call for many CNC companies. Many of them have realized that they need to fundamentally rethink their supply chain management.
In order to diversify their risk, companies should consider moving their production to another location. Production costs may no longer play a major role in the selection of the production site.
Digital platforms are a welcomed solution, as they open up new market opportunities while providing additional transparency. Among them, Orderfox believes in the need for a direct relationship between buyer and manufacturer, and the company enables direct communication between the two parties. This creates maximum transparency and mutual trust. At the same time, the price pressure on manufacturers is alleviated, as the latter can also differentiate themselves from their competitors by means of quality attributes.
Companies in the CNC machining sector can rely on Orderfox’s global network for customized manufacturing by qualified workshops. The entire industry will have free access to our CNC platform until May 31st, 2020.
