The INVEX cloud-based metal software offers comprehensive functionality for general line metal and steel service centers. INVEX enables general line service centers to quickly take and ship orders with minimal screens and steps. Common business cases such as band sawing or plate cutting can be handled quickly and out-of-the-box.
These metal companies, also referred to as multi-line metal service centers, normally carry a wide range of products which includes metal and steel beams, angles, sheet, plate, pipe and tube, expanded metal, and fittings.
Production includes specialized layout functions for sawing and plate cutting. A built-in saw length optimization function helps scan the inventory based on the orders to cut and provide a cutting plan for the operator in the warehouse.

Fast entry of quotes and orders with real-time access to inventory and pricing information makes all the difference.
