Greater efficiency and reduced workload for purchasers through integrated, automated and digital procurement – FACTUREE, with the widest range of services in the industry
“FACTUREE – The Online Manufacturer” shows the procurement of the future for production parts
Berlin, January 15th 2020 – In times of globalization and digitization, the market demands ever faster production and low-cost services with high quality from production companies. A core task for buyers of components is therefore the optimization of procurement processes. The online manufacturer FACTUREE (www.facturee.de/en) provides the “procurement of the future” through digitization, automation and networking. The CNC manufacturing network currently has the broadest range of production techniques and surface treatments in the industry.
“Production companies that depend on suppliers have to take digital transformation into account not only in manufacturing but in purchasing as well. The challenge here is also to digitize, integrate and automate processes in order to reduce costs, increase productivity and thus ultimately remain competitive,” explains Benjamin Schwab, Head of Marketing & Sales at cwmk GmbH. “By changing the purchasing strategy for production parts this way, there is considerable potential for savings and efficiency gains – and all this with the same or better quality of components and increased delivery reliability”.
cwmk GmbH, which operates as an online manufacturer under the brand name FACTUREE and has a constantly growing production network of more than 250 manufacturing partners from the fields of CNC machining and surface technology, demonstrates how this works. Over 1500 CNC machines are constantly available for projects, which means that free capacities and short delivery times are always guaranteed. FACTUREE has a unique selling point due to the industry’s widest range of manufacturing techniques in CNC and sheet metal processing, 3D printing and surface treatments.
High quality is also guaranteed: All partners are subject to a continuous data-driven quality management system, which is certified according to ISO 9001. The company is the first ISO 9001-certified manufacturing network with a full-service offering on the market.
Procurement 4.0: Time savings and planning reliability
“This modern way of sourcing production parts changes the buyer’s field of activity. Projects no longer have to be split up according to manufacturing techniques and assigned to different suppliers. This means that contracts with different partners, through whom multi-part production processes such as CNC machining with subsequent surface treatment would otherwise have to be handled in a time-consuming manner, are no longer necessary. Purchasers are relieved of a large part of their previous tasks, such as supplier searches and qualification, and freed of logistical efforts,” explains Benjamin Schwab.
Digitized processes such as automated read-out and classification of CAD data and the use of machine-learning algorithms for price calculation and supplier matching guarantee efficiency and speed. All in all, the cooperation with FACTUREE results in planning security and delivery reliability, cost reductions as well as high quality through ISO-certified processes.
