Metals industry specializations

Metal producers
The Crowe Metals Accelerator addresses many needs of primary metal producers. It offers features like the melt planning workbench to help optimize material planning, integrated production control, and quality management to track chemistry and specifications for hot roll, cold roll, or extrusion production. The Crowe Metals Accelerator also allows metal producers to track the dimensional transformation of products through the production process.
Metals service centers and distributors
Crowe Metals Accelerator is an ideal solution for metals service centers and distributors. For any product mix – coil, plate, long product, pipe, tube – it provides the toolset to help improve customer service, increase inventory visibility, and better plan operations. Metals service centers, including those with downstream fabrication capabilities, can use workbenches to strengthen their customer relationships, sell more product faster, and closely track margins on an order-by-order basis.
Tube and pipe
Providers of tube and pipe products require a flexible metals ERP solution to meet the demands of their customers in the oil and gas, construction, and mining industries. Crowe Metals Accelerator allows metals companies to track material specifications, characteristics, and attributes through each internal production step and during outside processing. Visibility to inventory dimensions such as OD/ID, wall size, and length allow for faster order fulfillment and optimize cost management. Automated unit of measure (UOM) management and conversions allows metals companies to buy, sell, produce, and price the same material using the optimal UOM.
Wire and cable
Crowe Metals Accelerator provides an ideal platform for wire and cable manufacturing companies because they require visibility of material throughout the wire drawing process and the ability to reroute material as customer demand changes. Using a single system to manage both wire and cable manufacturing processes allows for better cost tracking and analysis of product performance.
Toll processors
The demands of their largest customers, including those in the automotive and aerospace industries, mean toll processors must communicate with both suppliers and customers throughout the metals supply chain at the same time. Crowe Metals Accelerator delivers real-time communication for managing inventory, production specifications, quality, shipping, and receiving in an integrated metals ERP and EDI system that accommodates metals industry requirements.
Commodity and precious metals
Many metals manufacturers must manage variable commodity markets as a core tenant of their business. It’s imperative to understand their company’s market exposure at all times to any commodity or precious metals used in their manufacturing processes. Crowe Metals Accelerator allows metals companies to understand their precious metal position as well as manage the precious metal from purchase to sale.
