Macedonia , OH based Progressive Machine Die (PMD) manufactures stamped metal parts for a variety of industries. PMD sought a custom software application allowing it to capture detailed information about a part quote and track that information historically against actual production costs.


Fidelis worked with PMD management to develop a Microsoft Access and Excel based application that facilitates flexible and rapid quote entry and reporting.

Once created and won, the Excel-based quotes are imported into a reporting database at a line item level and compared with actual production costs to understand detailed reasons for variance between estimated and actual gross margin.


“The Cost and Quote application has been very useful for us.”
Julius Feitl, President, Progressive Machine Die
