The world’s leading on-demand manufacturing market has launched new technologies intended to revolutionize the way suppliers and buyers work together to create the products that will power the economy in the United States and around the world.
At the first-ever Xometry Marketplace Summit: Powering Tomorrow’s Supply Chain, Xometry CEO Randy Altschuler unveiled several new digital solutions that will transform the way suppliers and buyers do business. Xometry’s innovations will help the manufacturing industry increase its efficiency.
Altschuler announced new solutions:
Industrial buying engine 一 To advance customer sourcing and purchasing from over 500,000 top suppliers on Thomasnet.com®, this is a new digital sourcing model for enterprise buyers. The Industrial Buying Engine integrates Xometry’s instant quote engine, giving buyers greater flexibility.
Xometry work center 一 To speed time to market and increase productivity, this first cloud-based operating system will support small and medium-sized manufacturers.
Additionally, to improve the interconnectivity of Xometry’s rapidly growing supplier network around the world, the company has launched a Innovative hub for third-party developers. This ecosystem of solutions allows companies to seamlessly see their Xometry and non-Xometry work in one place. From there, they can access all the Xometry resources they need, including the job board, instant payment options, and more.
Xometry is a leader in digital marketing solutions, supplier selection and product sourcing. The Maryland-based company acquired Thomas in December 2021 and is accelerating digital transformation in manufacturing.
