Fictiv, the leader in high-quality manufacturing on-demand through its Digital Manufacturing Ecosystem, unveiled Fictiv Enterprise, an industry-first digital manufacturing solution to meet the robust quality and security requirements of the most demanding enterprise organizations. The pandemic has accelerated the need for digital transformation in manufacturing. Now more than ever, companies are looking for solutions to increase speed, quality, and productivity in new product introduction (NPI).
“For manufacturing companies to be competitive in the future, they absolutely must embrace a new digital paradigm,” said Fictiv CEO Dave Evans. “To make our Digital Manufacturing Ecosystem more accessible for large enterprises, we built the most advanced digital and physical security infrastructure in the industry and added customizable services for DfM and supply chain management, so Fictiv becomes a seamless extension of our customers’ supply chains.”
Rise of On-Demand Manufacturing
The pandemic has accelerated an industry shift to on-demand manufacturing and digital transformation. The recent 2021 State of Manufacturing Report revealed that 95% of companies consider digital transformation essential to their future success and that 84% have already turned to on-demand manufacturing in some capacity.
However, the rigorous quality and security requirements of enterprise companies have inhibited their full adoption of this shift for production purposes, leaving them reliant on large supply chain teams and owned manufacturing facilities that can limit innovation speed. In fact, 48% of respondents from the State of Manufacturing Report revealed that rigid internal processes hamper their team’s ability to innovate. Now, Fictiv Enterprise unlocks the full potential of on-demand manufacturing and digital transformation for these large companies.
Industry’s Premier Digital Manufacturing Solution
Fictiv Enterprise is the first to support the entire NPI cycle for large customers, offering a highly customized experience throughout. Unlike other on-demand solutions that focus on prototyping services or simply provide access to a vast marketplace of suppliers, Fictiv Enterprise extends a robust continuum of software tools and services that powers all three NPI phases of R&D, product validation, and launch with embedded security, transparency, and quality standards.
Key Fictiv Enterprise features include:
- Secure+: Expanded security services to provide enterprise-grade intellectual property protection, including SSAE18 SOC2 audited processes and systems; exclusive access to a Secure+ network of suppliers; availability of secure manufacturing and inspection facilities.
- Digital Tools: Unlimited access to Fictiv’s new 2D Drawing Generation and Annotation features as well as AI-generated design feedback and transparent order tracking.
