Introduction

The online software SteelSOFT facilitates and supports metal engineers, steel treatment engineers and welding firms in their daily administration and documentation of their work.

It actually started with the administration of the welding certificates for clients, so that they are relieved from their own Excel-lists. The program is web-based, because there for the software runs on different end devices, from the iPad over any tablet to the desktop computer, without any software being installed because it runs on the internet browser.

Administrated are scholarships, certificates, handbooks, firm-data, standard specifications, welding instructions and so on. Also providers can be rated. Recently there also is the possibility to provide welding instructions (WPS) on their own and to connect those with the corresponding auditing of procedures.

The system allows an overview over every single welding test that is existent in the company and the employees. The elongation of the welding certificate that is due every six month can quickly be performed in the system at the push of a button and without any hardcopy. Also the welding machines and measuring equipment and their testing is administrated and the client receives an automatic email over the outstanding work.

A performance declaration can easily be displayed by everybody in only two minutes. We have indicated the process of the compilation of a performance declaration on the internet recently because some of our clients in this field have worked with self-made world-charts before. Over the portal the compilation of the CE-marking can be done easily in a few steps now. The client just clicks himself through the software and in the end receives a readily filled out performance declaration and a CE-marking, including an individual company logo and address.

One of the highlights definitely is the abundant search tool, where for instance the weld indication, the welding procedure, the material and the sheet thickness or the pipe diameter can be inserted in the search tool. The software than automatically searches for and lists up the convenient welders that may weld this weld seam, the convenient welding procedure specifications and their auditing of procedures and also available sample works.

The SteelSOFT servers are located in the particular company buildings and the data gets encrypted every time when transferred, such as with Electronic Banking. This is very important for the data security. The replication servers are constructed redundantly which secures them against deficit. Clients can use the system immediately after registration and also generate users/staff that can also be furnished with different access rights. The import of the particular documents, certificates and test certificates can easily be done by the client his own.
