Revolutionizing the steel trading industry using low-code

Omicron Components SRL is an Italian company specializing in the trading and supply of hydraulic steel components and special-purpose steel. Founded in 2014, the company now markets its products across 5 continents. Initially, all their business processes were conducted manually. However, when sifting through heaps upon heaps of paperwork became too much, they moved to Excel spreadsheets. For a while things seemed to be fine, but as the business grew, spreadsheets just weren't getting the job done.

Spreadsheets had several disadvantages, such as:

Difficulties in real-time collaboration amongst employees

Tough to create insightful reports

Hard to work with spreadsheets on field staff handhelds

After testing out several alternatives, the chief executives of Omicron Components realized that low-code was a viable way to digitize their operations. As they needed a quick solution, they turned to Italy's top Zoho Creator partner, Sooite Solutions, who engineered a fully functional Creator application within a few weeks, and completely overhauled and digitized Omicron Components' steel trading processes.
