NEW YORK, NY, June 12, 2018 – Infor announced that Xometry has decided to implement Infor CloudSuite Industrial. Built on flexible, scalable architecture, the software is designed to help customers increase agility and alignment. The solution can also be used to help provide a foundation for more advanced operations, strategic analytics, and growth.
Founded in 2014, Xometry developed a software platform to enable product designers and engineers to upload 3D files and receive instant prices, expected lead times and manufacturability feedback across a wide range of manufacturing technologies. Xometry then utilizes a network of 1,100 small and medium manufacturers to produce and deliver the needed parts. The manufacturers receive notifications about jobs that fit their capabilities, and they are able to accept the work. It’s like a match service for product designers and custom manufacturers.
Over the last year, Xometry has experienced rapid growth, as the new concept has proven useful to the manufacturers using the service. The network of 100 manufactures has grown to over 1,100 – serving over 10,000 customers seeking suppliers, including BMW and General Electric. As the company attempted to cope with the rapid growth, Xometry realized it needed to invest in a third-party solution that could help them more efficiently scale and manage a large amount of small orders.
The Infor Cloudsuite Industrial Solution offers Xometry an end-to-end solution for greater network visibility. It also provides more modern functionality, like contextual analytics and collaboration tools designed to help with customer service.
Xometry provides product designers and engineers the most efficient way to source high-quality custom parts, with 24/7 access to instant pricing, expected lead time and manufacturability feedback. Their nationwide network of over 1,100 partner manufacturing facilities enables us to maintain consistently fast lead times while offering a broad array of capabilities, including CNC machining, 3D printing, sheet metal fabrication, injection molding and urethane casting. Xometry has over 10,000 customers, including BMW, General Electric and NASA.
