We pride ourselves on our ability to meet all of our customers' needs
Middleton, WI (PRWEB) February 25, 2009
WTS Paradigm, the leader in window and door manufacturing software, announced today that Serious Materials, a top player in the building industry known for their green construction products, has recently gone live in January with CenterPoint, WTS Paradigm's order-entry and quoting software. Serious Materials chose WTS Paradigm's software solutions to serve as their strategic partner for their ERP system and to help expand their efforts to increase sales and efficiency in the fenestration industry.
To meet Serious Materials' growth in their SeriousWindows line, they challenged WTS Paradigm with an extremely aggressive software rollout timeline of only three months. WTS Paradigm and Serious Materials started the CenterPoint software implementation process in early September of 2008.
"The WTS/Serious Materials rollout of WTS Paradigm was promised and delivered on-time. The software is working well. It has enabled my sales team to increase their productivity significantly, and we have received very positive feedback from our dealer customers," said Ian Sullivan, Vice President and General Manager - Windows Division for Serious Materials.
CenterPoint went live internally at Serious Materials on January 5. Within two weeks, CenterPoint was rolled out to Serious Materials' dealers.
"We pride ourselves on our ability to meet all of our customers' needs," said Nathan Herbst, President of WTS Paradigm. "This partnership shows not only our adaptability but also our commitment to the success of each of our customers and our vested interest in improving efficiency and workflow across the industry."
Windows are the biggest source of heating and cooling energy loss in homes. 39% of all greenhouse gas emissions are tied to building operations, with 38% of that for heating and cooling. Up to 40% of that energy - and cost - literally goes out the window. Serious Materials with their SeriousWindows deliver true, full-frame window performance from R-5 to R-11, dramatically reducing the impact of the 'built environment' on the climate, exceeding current (and future) Energy Star requirements as well as contributing points toward LEED certifications.
