Paperless Parts Adds Top Talent Across Engineering; Triples Team, and Still Growing

Paperless Parts | February 07, 2022

Paperless Parts, the leading estimating and quoting software for job shops and contract manufacturers, announces further growth to its Engineering Team with the hire of Darcy Parker, their new Director of Computational Geometry, and Michael Pfrommer, Director of Engineering. With these hires, Paperless Parts is putting significant brainpower behind its technology with the mission to solve some of the manufacturing industry’s greatest challenges.Under the VP of Engineering, Kevin Chen, and the team’s Director of Solutions Engineering, Kate Zinsky, hired in March and May 2021 respectively, the Engineering team tripled in size with more than 35% of their growth in Q4 alone, and there are no signs of slowing down hiring. 2022 is poised to have significant growth across all functions and there’s no shortage of opportunities within the company. Darcy Parker and Michael Pfrommer bring a combined 50+ years of engineering experience to Paperless Parts, both with long stints at PTC, and are set to scale their teams with additional top talent. They’ve both worked to solve critical challenges in the product design process with CAD and PLM and will now focus on growing the value that the Paperless Parts Platform provides on the other end of the value chain where that technology interacts with manufacturers. Parker’s accomplishments include helping to build the turbine for the Fantom Vacuum Cleaner, which later became the Dyson Vacuum Cleaner. Parker’s experience has led him to become an expert at Creo Parametric (formerly Pro/ENGINEER). He has worked with many customers to help them with their modeling problems and manufacturing challenges. Parker will use his experience to take the automation to the next level through even more powerful CAD file analysis to drive enhanced manufacturability warnings and use of Product Manufacturing Information in the Paperless Parts pricing engine. In the less than 30 days Michael Pfrommer has been Director of Engineering at Paperless Parts, he’s already added two SDET Engineers to his team, and is searching for additional experienced software engineers to join him. He will leverage his extensive experience to find innovative solutions and new approaches in support of Paperless Parts’ mission, while providing mentorship and valuable leadership across the organization. Reflecting on his past experience, Pfrommer says, “There is a lot of synergy and overlap in terms of the technology as well as processes between design and manufacturing. Bringing digital transformation to contract manufacturing can add significant value.” He adds that he’s energized by the mission of Paperless Parts to reinvigorate US manufacturing and help these companies make a difference. One solution that the Computational Geometry team at Paperless Parts is focused on in 2022 is making CAD data more accessible to the manufacturer. The current process of trying to get model-based definition information from the design phase into the manufacturing phase is challenging. There is rich information in the CAD model that would enable manufacturers to estimate more accurately and resolve design for manufacturability issues. Downstream suppliers have a stake in this too and want to see these problems solved. I am excited about the way Paperless Parts is approaching the challenge of going from design to manufacturing with the free Paperless Viewer,” says Parker. “Having a platform where all parties - contract manufacturers and downstream suppliers - can communicate and work on these problems in the context of the 3D model will help people get over this hurdle. Paperless Parts closed their Series B round of $30 million in September of 2021 and has leveraged the funds to rapidly scale the entire company. "We saw tremendous growth of the engineering team last year, ultimately tripling in size. This is extraordinary given the tough hiring conditions we've recently seen, We are also fortunate to have brought on some seasoned engineering leaders to help grow and enable this amazing team. Solving big challenges in the industry takes multiple experts coming together, and we are building this expertise." -Kevin Chen, VP of Engineering at Paperless Parts In 2022, Paperless Parts will focus on creating and expanding on individualized career paths and professional development opportunities, a valuable performance and feedback program, and consistent fun team-building events. Headquartered in the West End of Boston, MA, Paperless Parts offers an energetic and welcoming office, inclusive of Chief of Tail Wags, shepherd-mix, Bella. If you’re interested in joining their rocket ship, check out their careers page at paperlessparts.com/careers About Paperless Parts Paperless Parts is on a mission to help job shops, contract manufacturers, and finishing companies improve business and grow by providing them with the most advanced, secure, cloud-based sales and quoting platform available.

Patented DatavaultⓇ Technology Enables Metaverse Art Gallery And Mints Featured Artists NFTs At Inaugural World Art Forum In Egypt

Saphira & Ventura | January 17, 2022

Data Vault Holdings Inc., leading the way in tokenomics and metaverse data visualization, valuation, and monetization, announced it has developed a metaverse art gallery in collaboration with the inaugural international art event World Art Forum, hosted by the National Museum of Egyptian Civilization. The patented DatavaultⓇ platform mints NFTs of participating artists in support of the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) through art in Egypt and the world. The gallery proves the resourcefulness of NFTs–in its transformation of data objects through the metaverse–to create new digital assets from existing works. It will also showcase ADIO's data packet technology to create custom call-to-actions within the NFT art itself. The World Art Forum will take place in Cairo, Egypt at the National Museum of Egyptian Civilization from January 15-19, 2022. "We couldn't have envisioned just a few years ago the heights that NFTs would reach in their potential to not only improve the financial stability of artists, but also to address the social ills in the world. Sustainability and our collective carbon footprint are issues that the metaverse have helped to address. Through NFT art, DatavaultⓇ can effortlessly repurpose art to reduce, reuse, and recycle materials via our patented technology. What this exhibit's attendees, artists, owners, and collectors will witness is the emerging capability of NFT art to provide sustainable alternatives for creators, and the NFT market overall," -Nathaniel Bradley, co-founder and CEO of Data Vault Holdings. The World Art Forum, open to the public, will feature more than 150 pieces and sculptures from 27 countries. Art will be represented by more than 20 local, regional, and international galleries. The event will showcase NFTs minted by DatavaultⓇ from cultural centers in Africa, Europe, Asia, the United States, and the Middle East. Datavault's novel technology will mint NFTs of distinguished artists in painting, ceramics, sculpture, and visual arts. Artists include: Heidi Fosli (Norway), Abinoro Akporode Collins (Nigeria), Giorio Piccaia (Italy), Jorg Van Daele (Belgium), Larissa Noury (France), Wissam Fahmy (Egypt), and Ahmed Nawar (Egypt). The works will be featured alongside more than 1,000 anticipated visitors over the course of the five-day event, which will also include guest panelists across the fields of government, the arts, and global development. Datavault's metaverse gallery will provide a successful proof-of-concept for the utility of NFTs as a sustainable, revenue-generating art form for artists, collectors, and owners. DatavaultⓇ adds another layer to the Data Revolution through its support of the UN's Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in conjunction with the United Nations Representative Office In Egypt. Datavault's metaverse gallery will help to specifically promote SDG #17, which focuses on building partnerships among artists, development partners, and organizations to integrate art with the fundamental social issues of today–issues such as equality, women's empowerment, and cultural dialogue. Additionally, Datavault's patented platform offers a securitized digital item that provides continual royalties and residual income. DatavaultⓇ will also further authenticate the minted NFTs through the use of ADIO's proprietary data packet technology. Previously, DatavaultⓇ laid the groundwork for the multidisciplinary World Art Forum collaboration through the platform's inaugural metaverse gallery last month at the global art fair Art Basel Miami Beach, hosted December 2-5. DatavaultⓇ demonstrated its patented crypto technology creating NFTs from original works of featured artists from around the world, as digital art for purchase. Also last month, DatavaultⓇ completed the full metaverse exhibition "NFTs: Timeless and Ancient Art Exhibition", in collaboration with the New York art gallery Saphira & Ventura from December 28-30. This exhibit provided an accessible means for experiencing new and existing monetization capabilities within the emerging NFT space, through the minting of NFTs from participating artists' works as well as ancient masterpieces. Moreover, Saphira & Ventura will participate in this year's World Art Forum as one of more than 20 featured art galleries. Starting January 15, in collaboration with the World Art Forum, DatavaultⓇ will leverage the potential within the metaverse and use art as a universal language to promote artistic expression, financial viability, and sustainable development. DatavaultⓇ has only begun to tap into the limitless possibility of NFTs across mediums and locations. About the World Art Forum The World Art Forum aims to use art to connect global regions, artists, and galleries; establish partnerships among them; and facilitate integration between art and societal issues. The event features artists from around the world who share the goal of raising awareness about global issues and establishing a more sustainable future. This year's inaugural event will be under the auspices of the Egyptian government in partnership with the United Nations Representative Office in Egypt. Learn more about the World Art Forum here.
