Purchasing and Suppliers

Ease and Efficiency


Be more productive...


Efficient purchasing of all goods: steel and non-steel items.
Purchase orders are automatically issued from the nesting/optimising wizard, with any specific instructions added.
this generates a professional and precise purchase order which can be emailed direct to supplier.

Automatic inventory receiving ensures that when material is delivered it's quickly verified and allocated.
Any variance to the purchased goods are recorded and reported, ability to "retain ordered value" allows reconciliation with the purchase order invoice.

Analysis and management reporting of material purchasing, receiving and progressing inventory by location, costs by supplier, cost by job etc.
Ensuring costs are controlled and production is synchronised with material availability.

Efficient purchase order material requirements relayed to supplier via EDI (electronic data interchange); your steel supplier utilising STRUMIS "supplier licence" then nest/optimises your requirements and returns the EDI file to populate your purchase order and cutting lists automatically.
