Steel prices are continuing to skyrocket after hitting rock bottom late last year. Experts say steel prices are projected to climb throughout the year. It’s time to crack down on material waste and make your steel last longer and process more jobs. So how do you do it?
- Automatic Nesting – The faster you nest, the faster you cut parts, the faster you can move onto the next job. The more jobs you run, the more material you need. Using our automatic nesting algorithm, you can nest parts more efficiently to get the best material yield possible. The tighter the nests, the more parts you can fit on less material. In many cases, our SigmaNEST users have been able to double their workload and complete them in the same amount of time using our proprietary nesting engine designed for speed and efficiency.
- Reserved and On Consignment Sheets – In the latest revision of SigmaNEST X1, we overhauled the reserved and on consignment sheets feature to help you better organize sheets. You can assign sheets to specific jobs so that you will never go to process a job and struggle to find a sheet for it. Take it a step further and plan ahead on your routine jobs. Accurately assigning sheets to projects will keep you from buying more sheets in the efforts to be on the “safe” side.
- SigmaMRP – SigmaMRP is a robust solution for all of your business system needs. Tracking transactions, communications with customers, jobs, and more is available to you in the easy to use interface of SigmaMRP. SigmaMRP helps you from taking the order to invoicing the customer.
- QuoteNesting™ – Using the QuoteNesting™ feature with SigmaMRP ensures accurate quoting so that you can avoid under-quoting jobs to make sure your costs are covered. QuoteNesting™ allows you to store quotes for repeat jobs and assess accurate costs to new jobs so that you can get quotes to your potential customers as fast as possible. As you quote more jobs, faster, and more accurately, you will increase your chances of bringing in more jobs, as well as have peace of mind that you will make a profitable return on your work.
