The MetalOrigins System
The MetalOrigins system is an Internet based system designed for
the alloys industry. Built in-house by our technical staff, the
system takes input from a variety of users (buyers, sellers,
warehouses etc.), and allows each party to interact using a web
browser. Data is entered into the system only at the point of origin
(for example, the warehouse enters Bill of Lading data), instead of
being entered multiple times by multiple parties.
We can develop a system for you based on our technology and
Our process is simple. Instead of starting with a blank
page, as a consulting company would, we start with a working product
designed for alloys. This allows us to have a concrete discussion,
based on a real product.
Next, we develop a design document that states your
requirements, highlighting any differences from our standard
product. Some companies are using our product in its entirety with
no changes. Some need custom built screens that allow different
business processes to take place. By using our standard product as a
starting point, we are able to deliver a fully functional solution
to you in a matter of weeks, not months.
Finally, we test our product with you, the user, from which
feedback is provided directly to our programmers. In this way, you
have direct input to the design, layout, and development of your
Do you need to link to your existing accounting or
inventory systems? We employ an industry standard XML bridge to move
data quickly and accurately. Our technical personnel will make an
evaluation of your needs and help you to make the link happen.
Custom Built Systems
If your business process differs from what we have already built,
we can design and build a system that matches your need. We have
designed several systems for different bulk commodities from the
ground up, each designed to model the internal and external business
process of our clients.
Our systems are built using the most common and extensible
languages and operating systems available; Microsoft. Using a
Microsoft platform and databases, we are assured of our product's
longevity and mainstream acceptance for years to come.
