Steel Warehouse Management System
As Steel Manufacturing developed new business through General Motors, they needed a new inventory system to better manage the customer’s inventory while adding the ability to process EDI transactions. For this new business, Steel Manufacturing would house products from multiple vendors and deliver them upon request to GM.
Summary of Our Solution
VSI developed an Inventory Control System with EDI integrations for each supplier. The solution includes a desktop interface, a mobile application, and several small applications working together to accurately manage inventory. The primary mobile interface utilizes a Motorola MC9090 rugged handhelds and label printing is done using direct ZPL (Zebra Printer Language) sent directly to Zebra ZM600 Printers.
Vertical Systems has become a strategic partner with Steel Manufacturing. As additional needs arise, VSI will work with the Steel Manufacturing team to find a solution. The most recent interface has eliminated a great deal of paperwork by allowing their delivery drivers to capture a signature along with delivery information using a SmartPhone. The resulting reports are automatically generated and distributed via email.
