COMPANY

Woodgrain Millwork is a multi-unit company that creates moulding, millwork, doors and windows for customers throughout North and South America.  They have been in business since 1954 and have locations in Idaho, Georgia, Iowa, Alabama, Oregon and in Chile.

PROJECTS

Woodgrain needed a partner who could help them deliver on their goal of replacing their legacy systems with one highly-efficient ERP system while keeping costs well under-control and teaching their employees how to be SAP experts themselves.  BestXperts (now XpertMinds) rose to the challenge – we used our agile project management approach paired with focused staff mentoring to guide the executives, management team, and staff through the implementation of SAP.

During the first round of the implementation, BestXperts (XpertMinds) team members worked side-by-side (albeit sometimes via a “virtual” side) through the implementation of SAP ECC, SAP TM, SAP BW and SAP PI within the Woodgrain Distribution division.  We met that unusual goal of putting ourselves (partially) out of a job and are pleased to provide ongoing solution design and project leadership as Woodgrain employees now do the day-to-day development work required to roll SAP out to the rest of their organization.
