Turn your service center into a profit center.

SERVICE CENTER lets you turn quotes into receivables that turn into profits. A comprehensive program designed to handle all aspects of managing a steel service center or warehouse operation, Service Center automatically moves your orders from quote to receivables. Because it saves staff time, you earn higher profits.

Part of an entire family of fully integrated software to manage every aspect of steel sales and fabrication, Service Center includes the inventory and purchase order modules from Visual Steel 2000’s Fabricator program.

  • Service Center manages phone quotations, shop orders, delivery tickets, accounts receivable, material requisitions, credit review, job cost, profit/loss statements, and more.
  • Move a phone quotation to a shop order with only a few keystrokes. With a few more keystrokes, the shop order becomes an invoice to the customer. A record of the receivable is created, and payments received automatically updates all necessary accounting files.

Service Center works in tandem with other Visual Steel 2000 modules. Integration allows simultaneous access to the inventory system a distinct advantage to organizations that operate a fabrication plant and a service center or steel warehouse.
