DISTRIBUTORS GAIN VISIBILITY OF THEIR SUPPLY CHAIN WITH OPENTRAC™



Traditional canned Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems are not robust enough the meet the specific needs of metal service centers. OpenTrac™ provides applications designed for these requirements in mind and can be customized to meet each company's needs. These solutions provide buy/sell functions including attribute search capability and quote creation for orders. Our new service center design allows inventory to be tracked by attribute for minimal tracking, or more in-depth by material or coil ID.

Providing efficient and accurate value added services is vital to the success of metals processors. Not only do these organizations need to keep track of customers material, but must also have a mechanism to report this data. Our SteelPartner and OpenTrac™ solutions use advanced Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) translation and transaction technology to track material through every step of the process. Reports are created with real-time information. Using this advanced technology, the material owners are informed once inventory is received, put into production and then finally shipped to the end customer.

Our OpenTrac™ applications include specific enterprise resource planning (ERP) functions to manage the day-to-day operations of processors. Whether the requirements include order planning and scheduling, shop floor manufacturing, or tracking machine utilization, OpenTrac™ can streamline these business functions. Our applications are easy to administer and can help your processing business lower costs while providing better service.
