Pointe-Claire Steel Implements STRATIX

Montreal, QC – Pointe-Claire Steel, a specialist in the storage, processing and distribution of flat rolled steel products, has implemented the STRATIX metal service center software from Invera, a metal industry software specialist.

Pointe-Claire Steel implemented a full complement of STRATIX  features including inventory management, purchasing, sales, online production planning, coil and sheet processing functions, shop-floor production recording, online shipment planning, non-conformance reporting, invoicing & financials.
With real-time data, STRATIX allows for more visibility throughout the organization.  STRATIX features such as Order Status, Scheduling, Document Catalog and mobile compatible applications have helped Pointe-Claire Steel reduce the amount of paper used to complete daily activities. Sonny Monzavi, CFO, comments “The Document Catalogue module has allowed us to virtually eliminate the need for paper document filing.”
The sales team is now able to see the status of customer orders in real time, allowing for faster and more accurate customer service.  The production planning and scheduling modules allow Point-Claire Steel to centralize these functions for multiple locations. The scheduling module has enabled management to better understand the order volume and backlog, resulting in improved customer service. 

Michel Blais, General Manager of Pointe-Claire Steel, comments, “All slitting and cut-to-length production planning and scheduling is done on-line, and this has in turn provided superior visibility of the sales orders, at each phase of production until the final shipment. We are proud of the fact that we implemented this software in 8 months with no software modifications, which allowed us to move forward and keep our focus on our valued customers.”
The INVEX-OPS mobile app increases productivity and efficiency for shop floor operations. Features such as the Load Verification function have virtually eliminated shipping errors. Finding inventory is simplified via the Location Audit feature, and the Physical Inventory function has vastly improved the physical inventory process.
The INVEX-ONE analytics dashboard is used extensively by Senior Management to get a comprehensive, real-time overview of operations at all locations.  INVEX-ONE allows executives and management to make data driven decisions.
