Glass business software | ERP for Window and Door Manufacturers

Run your business smoothly with our Glass business software

For many of the glass businesses we talk to, the amount of time they spend on job management and trying to understand what is happening in their business is unequal to the amount of time spent on carrying out paid work. OpenJanela can help you turn this around — focus on income-generating, business-critical work whilst jobs progress smoothly through a robust job management system, complete with in-depth reporting to help you better understand your business.

Spend less time planning, more time doing !

Often job management ends up taking more time than the job itself. Whilst it's crucial, it isn't generating revenue in and of itself so finding ways to make this process more efficient is critical. OpenJanela connects all the aspects of a job together so it's easy to view job progression, see what still needs to be done and take action accordingly. From the Work-In-Progress screen, you can access quotes, work orders, invoices, the scheduling tool and more. Clicking on one item highlights linked documents so if you click on an invoice in the Work-In-Progress list, the joined quote and work order will be highlighted.
