Steel Manager III, 4GL’s metal software package, is the leading software in our industry. SM3 allows Fidelity to provide our Customers a service-level which is cost-effective, efficient and leading edge. Whether it is the rapid speed in which our sales representatives can access sales & pricing information used to quote customers, or the auto-emailing of invoices, mill test certificates, and daily reports, SM3 is an important part of any distributor’s profit-model – it is for Fidelity!”
Mike Pope, V.P. of Fidelity & PAC, and 4GL Solutions have already begun the conversion process to move PAC to the Steel Manager III software. Mr. Pope says, “Steel Manager III is fully integrated, meaning all of our information, such as sales, purchasing, costing, financial, and more is managed by SM3”. He continues, “The inventory management tools, including bar coding, is particularly important to the PAC Trade side of our business due to the thousands of products PAC Trade has in stock”.
Mr. Pope concludes, “4GL Solutions has the software, expertise and serviceability to be our software of choice, and we look forward to the positive effects SM3 will have on our Customers and our company’s success”.
In addition to Steel Manager III (SM3) PAC PVF Trade will be installing both the MTR Automation Module, making the retrieval and electronic delivery of Material Test Reports effortless, as well as SM3’s Bar Coding Module, greatly increasing the speed and accuracy of inventory management.
