Spotlight on Steel Manufacturing Industry Applications

An increasing number of manufacturing companies are needing information that is spread across multiple data formats in databases for employee payrolls, job hazards, csv files for current orders, and reports sent out to stakeholders merged into single reports.

InetSoft's business intelligence software offers a customizable security management system at the user and data levels that allows different users (foremen, project managers, company executives and stakeholders) with different data access privileges to view the appropriate information. Analysis and dashboard features allow company executives to perform analytical operations that 'slice and dice' data from summary company statistics to each employee type to perform cost benefit analysis.

The same dashboard features allow project managers to track and manage production lines and supplies from iron ore companies and coal companies as well as costs incurred by various electricity companies. A foreman can track individual employee performance to cut down on costs and stick to production timelines more accurately. Additionally, localization features enable report generation for users from non-English speaking backgrounds (Spanish, Chinese, Japanese, etc.).
