The Tag Control Module controls inventory in multiple stock locations with sensitivity to tag control of receipts and issues. The tag number can be automatically generated, manually overridden, or set for manual entry. Detailed notes can be maintained regarding a particular tag. The lot record contains heat number, metallurgy, mill, condition, special notes, and stock source information, as well as cost and dimensional information on each piece or bundle.
Metal-Pro has developed a unique and useful feature in that users can design their own tag records, allowing the user to decide what information is to be prompted for (and searched on) for tag records. Different types of stock can have different tag prompts.
Complete traceability is available, no matter how the stock is processed, used, or who it is to be sold to. Each piece or bundle in inventory can have a unique identity, never to be lost. Given a particular tag number, the system can go forward or backward to display parents or children of the selected tag in the powerful Tag Genealogy Inquiry.
Heat tracking with the ability to automatically produce mill test reports or in house certifications is standard. They can be emailed, faxed or printed as required.
Success or failure of a metals company is often driven by the effectiveness of the purchasing department. Executing buys of the right material at the right price and at the right time is extremely vital. Metal-Pro provides a module that empowers the user in their day-to-day interactions with mills and vendors.
The Vendor Master Service module enables buyers and/or purchasing agents to access vital information necessary to deal with vendors more rapidly and with greater accuracy. It provides up to date information regarding vendor activity, while tracking calls to and from vendors and capturing significant information exchanged during those calls.
This sophisticated software also provides FAST access to other functions such as entering purchase orders, inquiring against inventory, viewing open and closed purchase orders, and accessing vendor history. Closed vendor invoices and purchase order history also are available at the click of a few keys thus allowing the buyer to stay on top of and manage vendors with minimal effort.
