Background

Before implementing a scanning and inventory module, Metautek was facing major management problems due to the dispersal of its information. The company relied on external software, mainly Excel files or paper notes, to manage the various aspects of its operations. This decentralized approach was a source of inefficiency and hampered the effective management of its operations and inventory.

In the absence of a centralized system, Metautek faced the following problems:

  • Lack of visibility: The use of disparate Excel files and paper notes made it difficult to obtain an overview of IT assets and inventory. This lack of visibility hampered decision-making processes and made it difficult to track and manage resources effectively.
  • Inefficient processes: With information scattered across multiple sources, Metautek was faced with time-consuming and error-prone manual processes. Tracking assets, managing inventory levels and carrying out audits required significant manual effort, resulting in inefficiencies and potential inaccuracies.
  • Inadequate loss management: Managing off-cuts presented a major challenge for Metautek, as it was crucial to avoid financial losses, operational inefficiencies, and reputation damage. The company focused on finding efficient methods to handle and optimize off-cut utilization, prioritizing the minimization of material waste and the maximization of cost savings.

Faced with these challenges, Metautek recognized the need for a more efficient, centralized ERP solution.

Solution

To address Metautek’s IT management challenges, Openmind Technologies also offers an advanced feature set that includes scan management, ordering, and material cutting optimization.

This feature enhances the overall functionality of the inventory management system and brings additional benefits to Metautek. Here’s how each aspect contributes to improving their operations:

  • Scan Management: The scan management feature enables Metautek to efficiently track and manage their inventory through scanning capabilities. This streamlines the inventory tracking process, reduces manual data entry errors, and provides real-time updates on inventory levels.
  • Material Cutting Optimization: For Metautek’s manufacturing or production operations, the material cutting optimization feature plays a crucial role. It allows efficient planning and optimization of material usage during the cutting or fabrication process. By analyzing the required dimensions and patterns, the system suggests the most optimized cutting plans, minimizing material waste and maximizing resource utilization.

 

By implementing this customized solution, Metautek was able to increase efficiency through better inventory control, optimized cutting and material utilization, while saving time and money.
