The need for a total software solution

Advanced Steel Fabrications (ASF) was founded in 1988 and since then, it has grown into a group of companies with business interests within construction, steel processing and steel fabrication industries. “During the development of the organization we were looking for software that would use information from our drafting software to give us information for materials procurement, optimization, traceability of materials, estimation and tracking costing through the project”, explains ASF director Mr. Leno Zanardo. After comparing several of the leading software solutions, ConstruSteel was rated as the best and most complete solution.

MRP and MIS functionality

ConstruSteel is used throughout ASF’s primary (MRP) and secondary (MIS) processes, for e.g. estimation, costings, materials procurement, data nesting for CNC machinery, production and budget tracking. Mr. Zanardo clarifies: “In our opinion, it has streamlined our processes so we can spend more time on the actual construction of the project.” For ASF, the most unique about the software is the easy nesting of materials. “Having multiple beamlines in place gives us a huge time saving through materials processing. We also have the ability to uptake more technology, which enabled us to speed up processing, fabrication and construction times.”

Benefits

Mr. Zanardo is very happy with all the benefits of the ConstruSteel solutions and all specific technical functionalities: “ConstruSteel has helped our overall profitability. We can easily track variations and changes to the project and have that data instantly to submit cost variation claims. The overall time saving in some areas were vast. Our programming time for our CNC machinery is halved and tracking job costings are at a glance, where previously it took several hours to collate the information. Thanks to ConstruSteel we achieved an overall saving of administration of around 15%!”

ConstruSteel guiding the steel fabrication company

From the beginning, ASF experienced ConstruSteel’s customer service as exceptional. Mr. Zanardo explains: “Being on the other side of the world had only a minor impact on the time taken to response and the specialists are always very professional and prompt. On the initial install, the technicians that arrived where very knowledgeable and communicated very well with our staff.” The software is the guiding line within the company’s processes and management. “ConstruSteel is used every working hour of our day and is used on all our projects. We would be lost without it today,” concludes Mr. Zanardo.
