A Better Way to Plan Large Product Orders

We’ve added a new tool to the Product ordering process for customers looking to save costs and properly plan inventory for large quantity orders. The goal of this new feature is to make it easier, more transparent, and even more affordable to scale your manufacturing with MacroFab.

To access Build Planning, click on Products in the top navigation and then click on Step 6: Build Planning.

Use the Price Estimator to adjust the number of products you are planning to build. You can view realtime prices and know exactly how much it will cost to build your product at MacroFab. Tap into your existing inventory stock and know how much extra you might have to pay to replenish inventory items.

Build Planning automatically accounts for Price Breaks associated with inventory items! As you adjust the number or products to be built, MacroFab will recall inventory item price breaks to give you an accurate quote with your previously defined savings structure.

We hope Build Planning and our Price Breaks system will make it easier for you to reach your manufacturing and business goals! This is a first step towards more business focused improvements that we hope you’ll take advantage of in launching new and innovative products!
