Montreal Distributor Implements STRATIX

By on

Pointe-Claire Steel, a Monteal-based specialist in the storage, processing and distribution of flat-rolled steel products, has implemented the STRATIX metal service center software from Invera, a metal industry software specialist.

Pointe-Claire Steel implemented a full complement of STRATIX  features including inventory management, purchasing, sales, online production planning, coil and sheet processing functions, shop-floor production recording, online shipment planning, non-conformance reporting, invoicing & financials.

With real-time data, STRATIX allows for more visibility throughout the organization, the company claims.  STRATIX features such as Order Status, Scheduling, Document Catalog and mobile compatible applications have helped Pointe-Claire Steel reduce the amount of paper used to complete daily activities. “The Document Catalogue module has allowed us to virtually eliminate the need for paper document filing,” said Sonny Monzavi, CFO of Pointe-Claire Steel.

The sales team is now able to see the status of customer orders in real time, allowing for faster and more accurate customer service.  The production planning and scheduling modules allow Point-Claire Steel to centralize these functions for multiple locations. The scheduling module has enabled management to better understand the order volume and backlog, resulting in improved customer service.
