Agility’s product configurator ensures custom orders are accurate, profitable, and on-time.
Interfaces with major vendors cut order-entry time in half. Agility calculates the true costs of materials, labor, and equipment usage for each job, protecting margins in every quote.
Resource scheduling optimizes your production capacity by reconciling the time, labor, and equipment needed for each job, so you can promise delivery dates with confidence.
“The interfaces are a slick product. If you move windows, they’ll make a lot of sense for you.” -Jay Bundy, Vice President, Eastern Aluminum
Agility makes it easy to anticipate customer needs and respond quickly to requests.

Agility always has accurate, real-time answers about your products and pricing. Advanced tally-tracking lets you find a single board among a hundred bundles.
Integrated accounting, sales, and inventory means everyone works in the same system and information is real-time. Real-time data means financial statements are accessible 24/7.
