With JANIsoft, doors, windows and facades can be configured based on specifications. The system also offers the ability to generate order lists or cutting lists directly from these configurations. Consistent planning can prevent excess quantities and excess waste, which also leads to a reduction in costs. JANIsoft also includes interfaces for connecting machines, so that the exact data for recesses such as locks can be transferred directly from planning to the machine. This eliminates the source of errors resulting from manual data entry, thus removing the need for the metal fabricator to set up the machine.
