MCADCafe.com to Leverage Xpress3D?s eCommerce Platform for Online Rapid Prototyping
SOUTHBOROUGH, MA—May 5, 2003– IBSystems, a leading provider of online portals targeted at computer modeling professionals has announced a partnership with Xpress3D. Xpress3D’s ecommerce platform enables seamless transfer of data, instant price quotes, and a multitude of consumer options. Using this platform IBSystems will enhance its MCADCafe Web Portal with an online Rapid Prototyping solution. Users will have the ability to view instant price quotes from a variety of solution providers, using criteria such as price, material, delivery, geography, and more.
“IBSystems is constantly evolving our online communities to empower designers throughout the world and across industries,” said IB Systems president and CEO, David Heller. “We were the first online community to offer a fully functional Virtual Trade Show, bringing together vendors with thousands of users. Our sites are constantly updated to provide the latest tools for the design community and we wanted to offer an easy way for people to order Rapid Prototypes. Xpress3D’s ecommerce platform, combined with our easy to use portal, creates a true online RP marketplace.”
“Traditionally, engineers had to transmit many large files, exchange numerous emails and phone calls, and wait a few days to get multiple quotes on prototypes,” said Rick Chin, Xpress3D president. “Using our platform, design engineers simply travel to MCADCafe.com, hit a button and multiple quotes instantly appear. The platform brings together users and vendors in a secure marketplace providing choice in price, prototype material, customer review, or geography. MCADCafe.com visitors have come to expect the latest in technology and information, this is a logical next step for this leading portal.”
