ORDERFOX.com Introduces Order and Quote Management System
With Orderfox.com’s new order and quote management system, buyers and manufacturers can significantly optimize and simplify their processes to become more efficient. Through Orderfox.com, 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 order and quote management system, capacity optimization becomes easier, saving companies both time and money.
With the order management system, buyers can both manage the necessary details and communicate quickly with manufacturers regarding open topics. By utilizing the messenger feature, 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 messages won’t be lost. 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 functions, 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, such as the status of the non-disclosure agreement process. To provide more added value, buyers can use blacklists and exclusive partner lists to control exactly who can or cannot view RFQs.
With the quote management system, CNC manufacturers have an organized overview of all the 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. The messenger enables direct communication with the buyer’s contact for questions, and quotes can be sent or withdrawn with just one click. To speed up the process, Orderfox.com sends automatic notifications when a buyer accepts or rejects a quote.
