WoodWare Product Highlight: WebConnectXT

WoodWare Product Highlight: WebConnectXT

WebConnectXT continues to gain traction with the WoodWare customers. WebConnectXT is WoodWare’s browser based internet access module that allows your customers to access their information (orders, history, bids, etc.) 24 hours a day without having to call your customer service reps.  When information is updated on your WoodWare System (such as order ship dates) it is immediately updated for the WebConnectXT user since WebConnectXT is accessing live data on WoodWare.  WebConnectXT is also a great tool for your outside sales reps to have web based access to customer information.  All access is user/password controlled, including what information each individual user is allowed to see.  The cornerstone for WoodWare’s graphical Order Entry is the Configured Order Entry module.  Configured O/E provides you a framework to set up a fool proof method that steps your order entry personnel through the building of simple (stair parts, moulding, etc.) to very complex (exterior doors with all options) configurations.  WoodWare’s Configured Order Entry is built in Excel with a WoodWare add-on that uploads it into your WoodWare database.  It allows you to customize the way your products are configured into a very consistent methodology.  The real benefit is that practically ANYONE can correctly configure your products error free!

They are a supplier for some of the best door manufacturers in the country. Their team has years of experience with a desire for excellence. Harris Door and Millwork was founded two years ago and Scott Harris, along with his son Scotty, decided to select WoodWare Systems as their software partner. Since implementing WoodWareXT, the company has experienced continued growth in a competitive market.

Scotty Harris shared their experience using WoodWareXT in contrast to software they have used with previous millwork organizations.

Scotty stated, “We really appreciate the flexibility of WoodWareXT. It makes order entry easy and allows us to create special orders on the fly. It is much easier than what we have used in the past and the configurator greatly shortens the learning curve for new staff.”

The foundation of WoodWareXT’s Order Entry is the Configured Order Entry module. Configured O/E provides a framework to set up a foolproof method that steps order entry personnel through the building of simple (stair parts, moulding, etc.) to very complex (exterior door units with all options) configurations. It simplifies the way orders are entered into a very consistent methodology. The real benefit is that new staff with no previous millwork experience can correctly configure products quickly and error free!

WoodWare Systems at the 2019 WMA Convention in Reno

WoodWare Systems at the 2019 WMA Convention in Reno

The World Millwork Alliance’s 2019 Convention and Tradeshow was held in Reno, Nevada October 6th – 10th. Each year millwork attendees gather for several days to exhibit new product offerings and discuss industry trends. WoodWare celebrated its 32nd year as an exhibitor at the convention and was excited to see this year’s increase in attendance and all the interesting speakers and exhibits.

Tuesday morning the convention began with the WMA New Member & Millennial Benefit Breakfast. President of WoodWare Systems, Nick Carter, led the assembly as the emcee and shared some encouraging statistics for this year’s conference: 2019 saw a 25% increase in attendance, and a 50% increase in new members. Panel members discussed the personal and professional benefits of belonging to the WMA.  WoodWare sales manager, Brad Carter, spoke about the value he places on the relationships he’s made since joining the WMA back in 2009. Building relationships with customers as well as non-customers is one of the highlights of each year’s convention.

The conference opened with the keynote speaker, Jim Abbott, who is well known for overcoming the physical limitation of his right-hand deformity and enjoying a successful MLB career. He spoke about the hurdles he overcame pursuing a  career in baseball leading up to his favorite professional achievement: throwing a no-hitter as a New York Yankee in 1993. He demonstrated how he learned as a child to throw and catch with one functioning hand and shared the importance of perseverance and our ability to adapt. He ended his speech with a challenge for the industry urging everyone to move forward, persevere, and adapt.

WoodWare enjoyed having customers and prospects visit the booth to catch up and learn about some of the enhancements that are  being worked on.  Mike Gardner, head of training and implementation, presented new capabilities in the WoodWare programs. There  was plenty of interest in learning more about the instant information WebXT and DocXT offers to WoodWare users.  DocXT gives their  employees access to all of their documents, drawings, and files related to that order and/or customer at the touch of the DocXT button.  WebXT allows their outside sales staff real-time access to order status, accurate pricing and product availability.  WebXT provides immediate answers for their customers. It was great seeing the increased attendance in 2019 and look forward to continuing that trend at next year’s convention in Mobile, Alabama in 2020!
