WTS Paradigm, the innovation leader in fenestration software for dealers and manufacturers, announced today that it has been working in partnership with a leading window and door manufacturer in the industry. Kolbe & Kolbe Millwork Co., Inc. (Kolbe) is a wood and vinyl window and door manufacturer selling through a large distribution network in North America.

Kolbe wanted to change to a platform that would promote growth and add functionality to better serve their customer base. They began by implementing WTS Paradigm’s system for quoting and order entry. Currently, Kolbe is in the process of implementing additional modules including MasterPoint, WTS Paradigm’s production scheduling system. “We needed a more powerful end-to-end system that would improve our customers ability to quote and present Kolbe’s highly customized offering,” said Mike Salsieder, President of Kolbe. “WTS Paradigm was able to offer a solution to achieve this goal.”    

“The implementation strategy called for an aggressive timeline and with the help of WTS Paradigm we were able to implement this complex solution quickly,” said Mike Tomsyck, Kolbe’s Vice President of Finance. “Based on our initial success we look forward to our continued partnership with WTS Paradigm.”

On March 1st, 2010 Kolbe went live with CenterPoint, which Kolbe has branded as Kolbe ProQuote® 2010. Within a number of weeks the targets for number of users and quotes generated using the software were exceeded. “We wanted a seamless transition to the new system for our users,” said Hank Hosler, Director of IT. “The tools and support provided by WTS Paradigm enabled us to migrate to the new system with virtually no delay.”

The Kolbe agreement marks another milestone showing the continued growth and success of WTS Paradigm. “Kolbe has an extremely strong team and is a major player in the industry who understands how software can help their business,” said Nathan Herbst, President of WTS Paradigm. “We are excited to have them as a new partner and look forward to helping them grow their business.”
