Bailey Metal Processing (BMP), a leading provider of lightweight steel products based in Burlington, Ontario, has implemented the STRATIX metal service center software from Invera, a metal industry software specialist. Designed as a turnkey metal solution, STRATIX features include inventory management, purchasing, sales, online production planning, coil processing functions, shop-floor production recording, online shipment planning, non-conformance reporting, invoicing & financials—all out of the box.
Because it was designed with the metal industry in mind, the versatile STRATIX software handles most use cases out of the box—and BMP was no exception. BMP was able to implement STRATIX in just 7 months; the modifications required by other ERPs would have prolonged this brisk timeline. This allowed BMP to update and streamline processes, eliminate manual work, improve traceability, and reduce hardware costs with STRATIX ON-DEMAND.
“First and foremost, STRATIX was designed for our industry. Several other packages would have required a significant amount of time and money to customize. With STRATIX, there was no compromise.“
—Stephen van Batenburg Stafford, Divisional Controller
STRATIX’s real-time order status module provides current and accurate information for the BMP sales staff to review. In addition, the production recording and shipping modules in STRATIX have provided major benefits for BMP: physical inventory counts have become much more efficient and accurate with the introduction of tablets on the shop floor. Stafford comments, “Barcoded tags and the ability to deploy a fleet of tablets and scanners has allowed us to improve the timeliness and accuracy of our inventory movement, and significantly reduced the amount of time spent on each inventory count. We now count and reconcile about 4,500 tags in less than 5 hours.”
When opening a new location in the Vancouver area, Bailey Metal Processing was able to deploy STRATIX at the location with no additional Invera consulting. Using the STRATIX/MULTICO feature, users in Burlington can conduct transactions, manage inventory, and provide seamless support.
Using STRATIX’s EDI-ready platform, BMP has integrated with sister companies on different systems, significantly reducing manual entry of sales orders, production updates, and shipping transactions.
Ease of use for industry professionals such as BMP was top of mind when designing STRATIX. Providing a best-in-class solution for metal service centers means STRATIX works without modification for many customers, including Bailey Metal Processing.
