Online commerce is booming. Why not also order metal parts over the internet? That´s the question the specialists of Lantek, a worldwide leader for sheet metal software, asked and developed MetalShop. The platform allows to settle all business processes online – from request to quotation.
To this end MetalShop cooperates with the Lantek software suite of the respective company. In the user-interface of the frontend the customers can upload the contours, specify the parts and if required access previous orders and quotations. The system checks the parts and if the format is supported. As soon as the request is placed, the system automatically clarifies the stock level and availability of capacities and generates the offer, taking into account all costs for material, production and shipping as well as individual customer tariffs. The offer will also be confirmed online by the customer, whereby he can chose his preferred delivery date. Of all this the system generates the quotation.

“The willingness to order metal parts online is still very young in Germany,” says Christoph Lenhard, sales director at Lantek for Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
