Island Steel in UK to Implement INVEX Metal Cloud ERP with No Customizations

Island Steel UK Ltd, a strip steel distribution and processing center in Newport, UK, has selected INVEX, a cloud-based metal service center software from Invera, the metal industry cloud ERP software company.

Island Steel will be implementing a full complement of INVEX ERP software features including inventory management, steel purchasing and MRP functions, contract sales, online production planning, coil and sheet processing functions, shop-floor tablet and mobile functions, job scheduling, online shipment planning, and tablet based slit coil production weight recording features.

Sales will be able to quickly view coil, sheet, and painted coil inventory as well as viewing finished good just in time (JIT) inventory produced in advance to a customer part. For repetitive contract items, sales can view a list of customer parts and finished goods that are ready and quickly create releases for shipment.

Island Steel will be able to view the comprehensive production status of the customer order at a single glance, on a desktop or mobile device. The sales team will also be able to view inventory or a view of the customer recent activity directly from a mobile device in preparation for customer visits.

For the warehouse, once the slit coil or sheet has been produced, Island Steel will utilize the tablet-based multiple banding and packaging functions to meet slitting, banding, packaging and weighing requirements. INVEX mobile applications will also be implemented for picking coils for processing or steel sheets to meet customer orders. During the transport loading process, Island Steel will also be performing mobile verifications to ensure the correct items are loaded for shipment.

“We are looking forward to implementing a modern and easy to use cloud-based software that will provide us the latest technology stack available for the metal industry. We wanted a high-fit enterprise software solution that is fast to use, with no software modifications, to allow us to implement quickly and improve our company using desktop, tablet, and mobile technology.”
