This company cooperates with parts processing companies nationwide to provide one-stop processed product manufacturing services.

Japanese parts processing companies have high technical capabilities, but their sales capabilities are weak, so the reality is that they rely on certain business partners.

Therefore, this company launched a platform with an automatic quotation function, and provides parts after quality assurance from the standpoint of a fabless manufacturer.

As a result, parts processing companies can deliver products to new customers without having to engage in sales or create quotations, allowing them to concentrate on their core business and further improve their technical capabilities.

By dispersing the suppliers, the ordering side can reduce the risk of parts interruption even during busy periods or bankruptcy.

That’s all
