Businesses in the steel and metals industry have a difficult time finding management systems that support complicated operations. Traditional enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions simply don’t have the features or functionality to address complex inventory management, streamline the quoting process or provide visibility into profitability or customer satisfaction.

Struggling with inefficient legacy systems isn’t good for business. Replace outdated technology with a solution designed for the steel and metals industry – RealSTEEL.
Steel service centers, metal fabricators, coil slitters and other businesses within the steel and metals industry are often stuck with inefficient software systems because they have few other options. However, settling with software that doesn’t align with business operations is more trouble than it’s worth. Frustrated by lacking or slow functionality, employees turn to paper-based processes or spreadsheets to capture and manage data.

Not only are manual processes a drain on productivity, they can lead to mistakes as data is transcribed from one system or document into another. Managers get farther away from reliable, real-time data, which impacts decision making and can trigger even more mistakes. Losing track of inventory, for example, can lead to stock-outs, delaying production and frustrating customers. On the other hand, poor inventory management can cause overstocking and puts more pressure on cash flow.
