Professional Services Consultant Geoff Kendell has been working in the USA and Canada. Working with a large multi-metals distribution operation Geoff has been looking at business processes and how imetal can assist in streamlining and enhancing their operations, in particular they found the multi length cutting applications, speed in order entry and material optimization a major advantage over other products of a similar nature. The utilization of process planning and scheduling will revolutionize their business in terms of releasing capacity when handling their growing order book
