Nashville Plywood chooses Agility to put information at their employees’ fingertips
Nearly 20 years ago, Nashville Plywood chose DMSi as their software vendor; and by recently choosing to step-up to Agility they will increase opportunities for efficiency. Based out of Nashville, Tennessee, the company distributes lumber and plywood to cabinet and millwork companies in middle Tennessee and to the central and western parts of Kentucky. “With Agility, there will be more opportunities to improve processes,” Nashville Plywood’s President, Jim Agee said. “It will allow us to better service our customers through improved efficiency and communication.”
Choosing to go to Agility wasn’t a decision that was made lightly, but the company also knew they wanted to stay with DMSi. “We’ve had a great experience with DMSi, for a long time,” Agee added. “We have a great deal of confidence in DMSi and in the people we have dealt with over the years in both customer and technical support. We feel good about continuing our business relationship with DMSi.”
Transitioning away from DMSi’s legacy system, DMS+, is a big move, but Nashville Plywood is excited about the Windows-based aspect of Agility. One of the technological aspect’s Nashville Plywood is particularly energized about using is the cloud-based Agility Software as a Service (SaaS) platform. SaaS will give Nashville Plywood’s users the independence to access the software from anywhere with just an internet connection. “SaaS will open the doors for us to do some things with our outside salesmen,” Agee added. “They will be able to service customers better just by having information available at their fingertips.”
Choosing SaaS is a smart move for Nashville Plywood, from an efficiency standpoint, but it will also eliminate a lot of headaches and expenses. “As a small business, we have always managed all aspects of the business in house,” Agee explained. “SaaS will take a significant amount of time dedicated to hardware and daily maintenance responsibilities off our hands, allowing us to focus on our core business.”
