Steel Erection and Fabrication Application

Whimbrel has developed a steel fabrication and scheduling software application that streamlines operational and financial planning. This application integrates seamlessly with Whimbrel’s Bill of Material Software solutions and can be customised to your exact requirements. It tracks the assembly of all raw materials and finished goods, helping you make the correct decisions on what to make, what to purchase and keeps track of profit margins.

Steel erection and fabrication companies need to control the type and quantities of materials they purchase and fabricate in-house. Companies need to meet future customer demands at the lowest possible cost. If your manufacturing company depends on spreadsheets, legacy systems or hand filled forms to manage materials there is a good chance high error rates are hurting your profit margins.
