Client Profile

Reliance Steel and Aluminum Company (RSAC) is North America’s largest metals service center company, offering 100,000+ products and value-added processing and serving over 125,000 customers primarily by providing metals processing, inventory management services, and quick delivery.

Business challenges

  • Reliance Steel and Aluminum Company (RSAC), a Fortune 500 metal  services provider in North America holds 60 companies under its umbrella.  Each of these businesses operated independently of each other with their own  unique processes and on-premise technology setup. All data was siloed, and  the company had no way of analyzing it to derive insights. This lack of  insight to make data driven decisions impacted multiple aspects of their  business – from supply chain and sales optimizations to vendor and inventory management.  The business needed to be more responsive and become a data driven company.
  • Agilisium was hand-picked by AWS for our competency in helping organizations take the Data-to-Insight leap. As consultants, we provided a multi part solution that would onboard RSAC’s disparate on-premise data sources and systems into a Consolidated Enterprise Data Warehouse (CEDW). With this move up the information maturity curve, RSAC could then enable and accelerate strategic data initiatives, product development, and R&D.
