Local Developers Launch iROM Scrap Metal Recycling App for iPhone
2012-02-10 · By Editor
21st Century Programming, designers and distributors of Recycling Operations Manager, have announced the official launch of ROM for iPhone. iROM gives recyclers access to all their data from dashboard level summaries to individual transaction history on the road, right from their phone. 21st Century Programming will demonstrate the application at the ISRI Convention in Las Vegas, April 15 – 19, 2012.
“Metal traders are movers and shakers – they are always on the go. To assist them in managing their operations away from the office we developed our popular Recycling Operations Manager (ROM) software to be compatible with iPhone.” said Dave Kane, President and Chief Developer for 21st Century Programming.
ROM for iPhone is an extension of the desktop software program, Recycling Operations Manager (ROM), developed by 21st Century Programming. iROM functions as a management application and allows recyclers to review data stored on their facility’s server from anywhere in the world. Users can access accounts receivable, accounts payable, sales order balances, purchase order balances, sales and purchase information, open shipments, open receivers and customer contact info.
With iROM, users don’t just get an overview of transactions in progress, but can drill down to specific order details with material photos and up-to-date balance information. Users of iROM can also view open scale tickets in both shipping and receiving.
“The iROM application for iPhone is so easy to use. It duplicates every major function of the desktop software so that our sales force or management can be up-to-date when they arrive on the doorstep of any one of customers anywhere and any time all over the world. With iROM we’ve been able to dramatically improve our client relations, giving us a higher degree of credibility among our customers and our peers,” commented Larry Zweigbaum, CIO, Alliance Steel Service Company in St. Paul, Minnesota.
The smart phone application is made safe and secure with the requirement of a user name and password and a four-digit pass code. The iPhone application allows access to the data stored on the user’s server; no data is actually stored on the iPhone. A robust security system controls who has access to what data, with the capability of limiting users to seeing only their customer’s data.
ROM for iPhone also incorporates Google mapping to allow the user to look up a customer contact’s address and direct them to their destination, as well as one-click dialing.
The mobile app is compatible with software versions: ROM, ROM Brokerage, and ROM Enterprise with use of the ROM Web Connectivity module. iROM retails for $49.95.
