Triple-S Steel’s Shamrock Steel – Implements INVEX, a Cloud-Based Metal Enterprise Software

 

 

Shamrock Steel, a subsidiary of Triple-S Steel Holdings, Inc., a steel service center headquartered in Houston, TX, has implemented INVEX, a cloud-based metal service center software from Invera. The INVEX metal software provides a comprehensive set of metal-specific features with a state-of-the-art cloud-based technology stack and an intuitive native web user interface.

 

Shamrock Steel has applied a full complement of INVEX ERP software features including:

  • Inventory Management
  • Quote And Order Entry
  • Online Price Book
  • Counter Sales
  • Steel Purchasing
  • Shop-Floor Mobile Functions
  • Job Scheduling
  • Online Shipment Planning
  • Financial Applications

"INVEX was successfully implemented, and the user experience has been very positive. The software has a number of controls throughout the order fulfillment process to ensure customer requirements are met. We have enjoyed moving to real-time production recording, and utilizing the INVEX order status displays that provide comprehensive information on each order line. We are looking forward to future deployments throughout our company."

– Mike Livergood, Quality Control at Triple-S Steel

For the Sales department, quotes and orders are quickly entered in INVEX for as-is stock pulls or saw-cutting orders. For plate-cutting quotes, sales can choose from a list of custom plate-burned shapes such as circles and rings, making it easier and faster to enter quotes.

Shamrock also benefits from the Order Status Desktop, which shows the comprehensive status of the customer's order at a single glance. Since the picking, saw cutting, plate cutting, and bending processing steps are being recorded in the warehouse, the Sales Department can see the order’s status as it goes through each process – whether scheduled, in process, or complete. 

For the warehouse, saw and plate-cutting jobs are scheduled and recorded in real-time on the shop floor. Picks are recorded using shop-floor mobile devices, as the material is picked and loaded for shipment. The online Shipping Planning function provides a comprehensive, multi-layer inquiry that summarizes orders by customer, delivery route, or delivery zone for better load consolidation. 

"We look forward to continuing our digital transformation journey with INVEX and adding more sites across the country."

Nataly Marks, President of Triple-S Steel
