Key areas such as maximizing return from materials, managing just in time inventory (plate tracking) and optimizing the sales and quotation process can be addressed with FastCAM software.

As a direct response to Steel Service Centers needs, FastCAM has developed the FastTRACK® system for the tracking of valuable processed plate, and FastCAM® Quote Everything Database, a flexible and configurable quoting and estimating system. Productivity reports include customer win/loss quote detail and quote summary. Using the Quoter's query manager, quote information can be retrieved and sorted in a multi-level fashion by a variety of parameters including customer, location, quote/revision and due date. A quick analysis on which quotes were successful gives you an instant view of the gross profitability long before any accounting system.

All quotes are fast, accurate, optimized and stored in a central database to enable an instant snapshot of the performance of the quotation system for marketing, profitability and competitive assessment.

Our FastCUT® program has a feature within the program for Cut to Length which is an ideal solution for coil distributors. FastCUT®will determine the optimum blank size to use for a particular list of rectangular parts that are to be cut from a coil of fixed or infinite length. This is just one example from our productivity range.
