Provider of quoting and supply chain software for the EMS industry CalcuQuote has announced that it is integrating Stackrate, a quoting tool for PCB manufacturers, into QuoteCQ, its RFQ management system designed for Printed Circuit Board Assembly (PCBA) contract manufacturers. Stackrate is the flagship product created by Germany-based PCB industry software solutions company, Electronic Fellows.
“We believe that the quoting process in the Electronics Manufacturing Services (EMS) and PCB sectors is subject to fundamental change, Stackrate CEO, Florian Herborn, said. “API-driven solutions are about to replace most of the inefficient email communication within the next few years. With the integration of Stackrate in QuoteCQ, we accelerate this development and make the required technologies accessible to all market participants.”
EMS companies will be able to use this integration in their QuoteCQ enabled RFQ process to easily and accurately analyze PCB design files, visualize the PCB on their screen and reach additional PCB vendors to solicit quotes.
According to the companies, the integration supports CalcuQuote’s position as the global leader in the EMS quoting software space by improving the speed, accuracy and efficiency of the RFQ process.
“Stackrate is solving the problem of PCB analysis in an innovative way. The reason we see strong collaboration potential in the future is that the team at Stackrate shares our passion for being laser focused on applying their industry experience towards creating a better electronics supply chain.” said Chintan Sutaria, CalcuQuote CEO.
