HORSHAM, PA — Aegis Software and CalcuQuote have partnered to integrate their respective MES and RFQ software, allowing manufacturers to respond faster to changing customer and market demands, resulting in increased efficiency for their business operations and consistently satisfied customers.
Pairing Aegis Software’s MES platform with CalcuQuote’s RFQ software will enable manufacturers to speed and automate their operations from the beginning of the product launch process. CalcuQuote uses its comprehensive quoting system to improve RFQ response time, allowing users capture customer requirements, assess and document risk to be compliant with industry regulations, price materials instantly via supplier integrations, and estimate labor expenses. Users can now benefit from the functionality of Aegis’ FactoryLogix MES platform, which manages the entire manufacturing production lifecycle: from product launch through manufacturing execution, while providing valuable business intelligence in real time for maximum shop floor control and visibility. This partnership can lead to significant enhancements including improved cycle times and higher profit margins
Offering CalcuQuote’s RFQ software with Aegis’ FactoryLogix MES platform provides plug-and-play functionality through the FactoryLogix Application Programming Interface (API). Existing customers of both platforms can use the quotation management features that CalcuQuote contributes to Process Engineering portion of FactoryLogix.
“With today’s on-demand production environment, bills of material have become increasingly more complex, while production lead times and product cycles have become shorter. For all types of manufacturers, especially those in the contract manufacturing space, this means higher pressure to respond to RFQs faster and more accurately than ever before,” said Jason Spera, CEO, Aegis Software. “By partnering with CalcuQuote, we can offer customers a powerful RFQ management tool that saves valuable time and money at the earliest part of the manufacturing process.”
“When approached from a manual standpoint, quoting for high-tech manufacturing can be a challenging and time-consuming process, so we launched CalcuQuote to provide an automated platform to help customers improve their speed and accuracy in the areas of material costing, labor estimation and risk assessment,” said Chintan Sutaria, founder and president, CalcuQuote. “As we continue to respond to market demands, we are excited to partner with Aegis Software to offer a complementary, best-in-class MES software that is right in line with our customers’ goals of complete factory automation.”
