Propel vs. Agile 

Agile is a on-premise PLM solution that was acquired by Oracle in 2007. Propel is a modern, cloud-native PLM & QMS solution and leading alternative to Oracle Agile.

Frictionless Collaboration from Concept to Customer

A single view of all product data, automated workflows, and actionable insights connect everyone across your extended enterprise.

I would use Propel over Agile any day. It’s suited for a mid-size company and has everything if we grow to a Fortune 500 company.

Propel vs. Oracle Agile

Oracle Agile
Digitizes Concept to Customer Lifecycle
Provides a single platform for suppliers, engineering, quality, sales, customer service and customers to work together
Siloed solutions focused on individual department needs instead of company-wide goals
Strong Cloud Architecture
Built on the Salesforce platform for enterprise class security and scalability at a low TCO
On-premise or aging cloud technologies with high TCO, not designed for distributed or remote workforces
Core PLM Capabilities
Propel makes it easier to connect all your people and integrate all your data so that you can manage the full product lifecycle
Designed for engineering not the entire enterprise and cannot manage the full NPI process
Core Quality Management Capabilities
Provides closed loop enterprise wide quality management that drive quality back into design and supplier management
Manages the basics of quality, including SCAR, NC and CAPAs but is not well integrated with PLM, sales or service apps/users
Ease of Use
Highly intuitive desktop and mobile user interfaces make it easier for anyone to learn quickly
Complex and clunky user interfaces make it difficult for anyone but a power user to access.
Collaboration built in
Built in collaboration give you the context to see both the BOM and have the context on why different components were selected
Collaboration is left to email or Slack making it very difficult to see the discussion around product design choices
Strong supplier management
Supplier management is built in, so that suppliers can easily access just their data and alerts in a few clicks.
Not designed for suppliers and requires clunky VPNs and bolt-on modules

I’ve used PLM systems for more than 20 years, and Propel continues to be a leader with its flexible and easy solution.
