Glass Steel does so much more than just sales order entry or AR/AP management. Traditional legacy ERPs are limited to basic business functions: managing inventory, quoting orders, etc. But Glass Steel’s modern architecture is infinitely flexible and allows us to do far more interesting things: Ever dreamed of being able to see mill inventories alongside our own inventory? How about an optimal way to automatically sort and route trucks? What about quickly converting emails to quotes without ever keying in a part number? With Glass Steel, service centers have intuitive solutions for common problems that aren’t addressed in any other system.
From inventory to accounting to warehouse management, Glass Steel does it all – and so much more. We can’t show you everything (contact a salesperson for a demo), but imagine a complete ERP solution built with features like the ones highlighted below. It’s a game-changer.
With a single click, Glass Steel’s sales dashboard allows any salesperson, executive, or manager to quickly review all open orders currently in the queue. Order status – shipped, unshipped, in stock, backordered, invoiced or not invoiced – is immediately obvious through simple color-coding. Click any order and Glass will display information related to its status: unshipped orders can be seen in the operations dashboard where it is obvious if that order’s truck has been loaded. The exact location of trucks can be quickly found for on-delivery orders, MTRs can be printed, and more. The sales dashboard is an all-encompassing tool that allows complete management of any order in the system.
Using Glass Steel’s customer dashboard, users are able to quickly assess the sales performance of any customer at any time. Glass compiles sales and profitability data as it is generated and displays it for salespeople and managers alike in a simple and attractive graphical format. Performance is broken down by product type and date range, and users can easily track revenue, tons sold, gross profit production, outstanding invoices, and more. The customer dashboard allows sales and management to quickly recognize when a customer is falling behind or their product mix is changing so that it can be addressed proactively.
Glass Steel automatically pulls mill inventories into the system and provides inventory, bundle size, and rolling schedule data throughout the Glass ecosystem. Salespeople access this information directly in inventory and quoting screens so they can quote faster and more completely. Executives can explore historical mill tonnages and historical pricing through our Mill History tool. Users can discover which mill took which order by reviewing inventory quantities on an item-by-item and day-by-day basis. All mill inventories update multiple times per day and users are quickly alerted when data is refreshed or has become “stale.” Knowledge is power, and Glass mill inventory data gives users an enormous advantage in the marketplace.
Displayed on screens throughout the warehouse, the Glass Steel warehouse demand planning tool is transformative to warehouse operations and allows workers to self-manage and flow to the areas of the warehouse that need extra support in real-time. The warehouse demand planning tool tracks trucks through the warehouse as they load and its simple color-coding scheme allow users – whether salespeople or warehouse workers – to see the status of a truck at a glance whether shipped, loaded, staged, or queued. By graphically representing the performance and backlog of every individual bay or processing station, workers can be cross-trained and are able to naturally flow to the areas of the warehouse that need help in the moment.
