metals-AX® – the certified industry solution for coil and roll processing
Perfectly suited to your needs
Whether metal, paper, film or textiles: companies that process these materials must meet specific requirements beyond the usual standard ERP concept. Parameters like length, width, weight, thickness, quality, roll and core diameter must be recorded in order to guarantee consistent process reliability, from purchasing to logistics, processing and through to the sale. In order to meet these industry requirements, we have expanded metals-AX® with intelligent features and product properties.
Metals-AX® is built on the technologically pioneering Microsoft Dynamics AX business management solution.
