We’re 4GL Solutions. We’re as much about steel as we are about software. That’s one reason why we’ve become one of the leading producers of enterprise resource software specifically designed for today’s metal service centers.
Founded in 1984, 4GL Solutions is a family owned company and one of North America's leading sources for customized ERP software, Steel Manager III (SM3). We are dramatically expanding our customer base, with Steel Manager III installed for customers throughout Canada, the United States and Internationally.
Steel Manager III (SM3), is a completely integrated ERP solution designed exclusively for the metals industry. SM3 provides complete functionality in the areas of Inventory Management, Purchasing, Sales, Inside & Outside Processing, Linear Nesting, Plate Nesting Integration, Barcoding, MTR Retrieval, Shipping, integrated Accounting and extensive Reporting, and much more. The flexibility of SM3 makes it an ideal solution for all metal service centers, whether you are a general line distributor, or focus on pipe & tube, valves & fittings, bar, plate, flat rolled products, perforated and expanded metals, mesh, wire rope, specialty steel, structural steel, or any other metal type.
Steel Manager III is extremely easy to use and navigating around the software is very intuitive. The number of automated features within SM3 is what separates us from our competition. Many metal center activities that are done manually today are automated in Steel Manager III. One small example is Material Test Reports. If a customer always wants to receive MTRs via Email, SM3 will automatically Email the Certs upon the completion of a sales order, without any human intervention.
Customer Service is very important at 4GL Solutions and our support staff are focused on providing the best customer service possible. Our implementation specialists came from the metals industry so they are not only experts on our software but they understand the metals industry completely.
