The INVEX metal software offers a comprehensive set of features and functions that are specific to companies that produce profiled panels and metal building composite panels made from pre-painted and coated metals.
Common business cases such as producing painted slit coil and roll forming the slit product into a profiled panel or flashing, can be handled quickly and out-of-the-box. Other common processes include composite panel manufacturing, cut-down front/exit shearing, press brake/folding, slitting, painting, and anodizing.
In addition to profiled panels and composite panels, these building products companies, also referred to as metal roofing service centers, handle and manufacture a variety of other products that includes flashing, roof underlayment, fixtures, fittings, fasteners and accessories.
Orders can be fulfilled using the multi-step routing function that can fulfill an order across a single or multiple warehouses.
This can include outside processing steps; all required transfers are automatically created.

INVEX supports companies that produce metal building composite
and profiled panels made from pre-painted and coated metals.
The variable dimensions of a product (width for coils, width and length for sheet, length for panels and profiles, length for flashing) are automatically and dynamically maintained. This eliminates the need to create or generate specific product codes or numbers for each unique combination of dimensions created as a by-product of production and purchasing. For example, panels can be sold in stock lengths and custom lengths.
Project Orders are designed to allow architectural metal product companies to set up a large job at a summary level, indicating the total quantity of each panel and the corresponding price. As the contractor issues specific releases, the INVEX Orders can be quickly created from the Project Order. This enables the panel manufacturer to keep track of the planned and released quantities and provide a status and history of the entire project. Typically, contractors will release only the material required for the section(s) of the building that are ready for the panel installation.
ORDERS THAT SUPPLY A SERIES OF PANELS
‘Job Supply’ is an optional Quote/Order entry mode that is streamlined for use in orders that supply a series of panels where there may be different cut lengths for each panel and color specified on the order. The order entry function has been structured for this particular market sector to enable the piece and mark numbers to be recorded for each cut length. In addition to the length of the panel, contractors will also specify additional reference information required for production, packaging or unloading purposes. The purpose of this is to provide the staff that stacks the panels on skids with accurate skid content so as to eliminate the need to calculate or monitor the weight of each skid.
PANEL PRODUCTION RECORDING
Recording production is simple and fast. The specialized processing-plans help automate the generation of the planned production and only require operators to confirm what was produced.
ADVANCED LIFT PLANNING
To maximize user productivity, material handling and packaging functions, INVEX includes a flexible Advanced Lift Planning function that enables the content of each lift (skid, pallet, box, etc.) to be planned in advance, based on the customer’s packaging requirements. The purpose of this is to provide the staff that stacks the panels on skids with accurate skid content so as to eliminate the need to calculate or monitor the weight of each skid.
LIFTS & PACKAGES
A Lift represents a set of sheets or panels of the same or different sizes and/or lengths that have been stacked on a common skid or other type of package. All items in a skid must be for the same customer ship-to. INVEX uses lifts to control packaging, labels, as well as the loading and unloading operation.
