metals-AX® – the certified industry solution for the metal industry

Overcome future challenges

Anyone who is looking to operate long-term in the highly competitive metal industry has to deliver quickly and at a good price whilst offering their clients exceptional service. At the same time, dealers have to be careful, because excess stock levels can have a negative effect in the event of fluctuating market prices. To optimally meet the extensive requirements of the metal trade, an ERP business solution is a must: metals-AX®.

In July 2008, metals-AX® earned the status “Certified for Dynamics AX”, the first in the industry in Germany.

With metals-AX®, we offer our customers a technologically ground-breaking ERP steel trading software and one of the most advanced business solutions available on the market.

The building blocks of your ERP success

Take advantage of our foundations for success:

Modern. Modular. Customised.

It is customary in the industry for customers to deliver scrap metal in different alloys in order to process them into materials that can be sold. In this case, the customer is only charged a processing free, since they delivered the scrap metal in advance. For this reason, accounting for metal customers on a kg basis for the various alloys is essential.

This additional shadow accounting offers the option of an offset for the price of metal. In addition, there is an option in the configuration parameters to allow a negative UMA inventory. The UMA inventory can be taken into account in the credit limit check and thus be sold again via UMA. One advantage of the separate order type is that only selected sellers have the right to place such orders. Additional order types are available in the ERP system, for example:
