The backbone of a fully-transparent hardware program
MBX Hatch™ is the manufacturing orchestration software toolset that centralizes all the processes for your company to manage your complex hardware program.
MBX Forge™ is our award-winning manufacturing ecosystem that enables a truly custom and transparent manufacturing experience for your company without the time or expense of a custom set up.
Hatch is a breakthrough cloud-based management toolset for the B2B hardware supply chain designed to dramatically reduce program administration costs by consolidating engineering, manufacturing, logistics, and data in a fully interactive 24/7 environment.
Work in Progress Tracking
We understand no two product deployments are the same.
It’s easy to tailor your products to your customer projects. In a single configurable bill of materials you can choose which options fit best for things like memory or storage capacity.
As your products evolve, don’t lose track of a single engineering change.
Trace the history of every product update in a central, permanent repository. Create, view, sign off, and get notified about engineering changes as they occur.
See your orders progress through each build stage in real-time.
It’s like having window straight onto our manufacturing floor. As your orders progress you can see the exact work center they’re in on the route to completion.
Anything that belongs to you and stocked in our inventory is completely visible.
See finished goods, what’s allocated and what’s not, and raw materials on hand. With a few keystrokes you can change inventory levels, generate reports, and plan actions.
Gather the intelligence to expand to new global markets.
We’ve got an information hub that tells where your products are certified to ship and what you need to export to new countries. All the import/export requirements are there.
Schedule your project installs with confidence your products will be there.
We took a page out of Amazon’s book and made it simple to track and get notifications of shipments and deliveries. You can even add tracking for non-MBX shipments.
Additional Core Features
Filtering and finding orders couldn’t be any easier. Hatch consolidates all your sales orders and lets you filter by Open, Closed, or All orders.
