BuyDesign is already in use by leading window and door manufacturers such as Atrium Windows, CertainTeed, Kolbe & Kolbe Millworks, Therma-Tru Doors, and others.
National Woodwork will implement the BuyDesign Configurator integrated with the company’s new Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system – SyteLine 7 from Infor.

“We selected BuyDesign because it is proven in the window and door industry, and because the people at TDCI really understand the business,” said F. Wallace (Wally) Bromberg Jr., National Woodwork President and CEO. “BuyDesigns robust product configurator will enable us to make quoting and ordering our products faster and easier, while ensuring accuracy. We plan to make BuyDesign available to our distributors as well our own sales people.”
