E2 Shop System

PGI uses the award-winning E2 Shop System software to manage our job requests from the estimation process all the way through to shipping and invoicing. The E2 Shop System enables the effective control of all aspects of shop activity, while simultaneously and effectively managing the business needs of a company.

Development of the E2 Shop System dates back to 1984 and was originally created from an actual shop experience, real-life shop situations, shop know how and shop needs. Both shop owners and shop users participated in the creation of the unique software. The E2 Shop System includes features found in no other software product of its kind.
