MetalTrace® is a fully scalable, customizable document management system designed to track metals industry quality assurance paperwork. Created by a MetalSmart™ company with metals industry expertise, the MetalTrace® is suited for any company from Mills to End Users, including Service Centers, Distributors and Fabricators because the flexibility inherent in MetalTrace® allows for customization to your unique business environment.

Web Browser Access - MetalTrace® uses a standard web browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, etc.) locally or through your LAN, WAN or over the Internet...the choice is yours. No special programs need to be installed so there are no computer compatibility issues. MetalTrace® enables multiple users to retrieve MTRs and other documents at one or multiple locations all at the same time.

Modern technology - Using the latest technologies available, MetalTrace® catalogues an image of the document, indexes it for easy retrieval and allowing you to email, print or fax it from your workstation. Unlike generic document management solutions, MetalTrace® is customizable to your current workflow, does not force changes in the way you do business and is not cluttered with irrelevant features designed for other industries.
