Identify slow-moving stock quickly and create targeted promotions or deals to get it selling faster.

Perpetual stock checks

Ditch time-consuming full stock takes. Gain confidence in your stock levels by focusing daily checks on a select few items for optimal accuracy.

Handy sub-stocks

Leverage lot tracking to pinpoint stock locations, identify certified items, track shipments and batches, and more.

Buy or make stock?

Use real-time stock levels to determine if buying or making stock aligns better with your sales goals. Consider repurposing existing stock into higher-demand products.

So however you want to buy, stock, process, range and sell your materials, Merchanter makes it easy and accurate.

If you're a steel stockholder or timber merchant, you'll know just how incredibly complex certification can be. Merchanter makes it simple to keep track of the relevant paperwork, enabling you to digitally attach it to the relevant stock so your sourcing and trading is all audit-compliant.


Digital storage of certification saves enormous amounts of time and can eliminate errors and omissions. With more and more stringent standards coming into place, including UK-specific regulations as part of our exit from the EU, the process and auditing of certification in steel production is only likely to get worse, so having a simple system in place to manage it is essential.
