Our Customers

Steel Technologies

An international steel processor with 24 facilities located throughout the U.S., Canada, and Mexico.

The Challenge

Steel Technologies

Steel Technologies needed to provide continual insight into processes to track operational and financial interactions with trading partners. At the same time, it wanted to combine information from multiple data sources.

The Strategy

With solutions from Information Builders, it created function-specific data marts that combine data from multiple repositories; built standard middleware layers to simplify EDI connections; and assembled concise, easy-to-read reports and InfoApps™.

Jim Honerkamp
Chief Information Officer

iWay has allowed us to really streamline our EDI processing. So far, we have migrated about three-dozen trading partners to iWay and each migration is getting easier and easier. Standardization saves time for the technology professionals tasked with creating trading partner interfaces.

The Outcome

The company can now react to changes in forecasts in real time, can better gauge the company’s return on invested capital, more accurately handle current and pending opportunities, and more quickly install new trading partners with standard interfaces.
