Page Steel have had a local software house design and build a
custom barcode tracking software package named 'Steeltrack'. This
package connects the workshop processes to the office management
staff via their computers. All areas of the fabrication process are
fully monitored by Steeltrack. This enables Page Steel staff to
find out the exact position of each member on any project with the
click of a mouse.
Steeltrack produces weighted delivery dockets, and advises the
status of surface coatings and fabrication. Steeltrack also
indicates the status of each stage of a project and ensures all
members are ready for erection before the due date. Site personnel
love the way Steeltrack locates hard to find items. They are also
impressed by the packages ability to give riggers and foreman exact
delivery dates and to identify all members that had been delivered
on the same load. This can save valuable time for site staff trying
to locate items on large sites.
Steeltrack also has the ability to trace material test
certifications per member, and at the same time tracks the employee
who manufactured the item.
Steeltrack is also a live system, so as a member has completed a
particular process the office staff have real time monitoring of
each component on every project. When specifically required and
agreed to, Steeltrack can be made available over the internet for
clients to track their project.
A special oil resistant tough tag has been developed and is
attached to steel members, giving a clear member mark, length and
weight making identifying each component easy.
The software has recently been updated to work with Iphones and
ipads. When a barcode is scanned the fully history of that members
activities are avaiiable, or further progress to the meber can be
updated via the app.
