CO Case Study

ABIS HELPED CO INCREASE THEIR TRACEABILITY, IMPROVE THEIR FORECASTING CAPABILITIES, AND CONNECT THEIR ENTIRE COMPANY.

Matt Mitchel, Purchasing and Facilities Manager at CO, explains that they started looking for an ERP system to improve their material traceability and inventory management "Some of our hardships were inventory management, especially when it came to what is called 'lock control items', coils that had to have traceability for grade and job history; those were the kind of things we had a hard time keeping control of."

They hoped an ERP system would help them maintain the right amount of resources in the pipelines, which can be especially challenging in the steel industry where it can take "3 to 4 months to get a particular item" according to M. Mitchel.

"We also had trouble linking all that together with our financials" he remembers, "we were constantly having a hard time keeping an accurate eye on what was the value of our inventory."

This is when they met ABIS, Inc, a Software and Consulting company that could replace two or three different software systems while having a solid knowledge of their industry.
