Falling Behind or Losing Data? It May Be Time to Update your Technology

Business can get busy and it can be difficult to stay on top of orders, manage inventory and meet customer demands, especially when relying on outdated steel software.

You may notice that employees are just as frustrated, managing key data in spreadsheets or, worse yet, in paper files because legacy software has become so cumbersome to use. In this fast-paced marketplace, steel service centers and manufacturers need to be responsive to marketplace changes, customer needs and regulatory oversight. If you are falling behind on orders or losing track of key data, then it’s time to make a change for the better.

Big Data Woes

Data is such a necessary element for a successful business, yet many businesses struggle with how to collect, analyze and use it. This becomes even more burdensome in the steel and metals industry because of the variety and volume of data often needed to fulfill customer orders and remain profitable, while navigating regulatory obligations.

Spreadsheets and specialty software just don’t cut it in this complex industry. By the time you track down updated inventory records in order to estimate a customer project, the data could be old and the delay could cost you a customer. Replace inefficient, outdated processes and legacy software with a smarter solution: RealSTEEL.
