RAPID Launches New Part Quoting Platform

RAPID announces a new quoting solution for Rapid Machining and Rapid Sheet Metal customers. Rapid Sheet Metal will provide instant pricing and Rapid Machining will turn-around quotes within 24 hours.

To use the new quoting platform users need to log in or register for a free myRAPID account. Once in the portal, click on the Add Quote button. The customer is then prompted to choose a service, upload the CAD files, and submit the RFQ. If a part is eligible for instant pricing the part cost will appear. If the part does not fit the current instant pricing model or is a machined part a note will appear and a quote will be sent to the customer within 24 hours. Aside from the ease of quoting, the customer benefits by also being able to specify expedites, split shipments, and remove or add items to an order.

Steve Lynch, Director of Technology, states “This tool is very powerful for the customer. It allows them to be in charge of their orders, shipping dates, shipping methods and more. I am very excited for the release of the tool and thrilled with beta customer feedback of significant time savings.”

James Jacobs, CEO, states, “RAPID continually looks to reduce time in all parts of the manufacturing process. Batch Quoting eliminates the time consuming step of pricing each part separately. We pride ourselves on providing a frictionless customer experience and this opens up yet another option to receive pricing from RAPID. We recognize that different people work in different ways and by offering multiple options to submit quotes to RAPID, the customer can choose a method most convenient to them and their business.”

Customers using SOLIDWORKS will still be able to get instant pricing using eRAPID, a free SOLIDWORKS plug-in that provides instant costing on sheet metal parts. RAPID will still have a quote option on the website for individuals that do not create a myRAPID Account.
