Wellborn Forest Products Selects 20-20 Technologies as its Strategic ERP Partner



    LAVAL, QC, July 15 /CNW Telbec/ - 20-20 Technologies Inc. (TSX:TWT), the
world leader in 3D interior design and furniture manufacturing software,
announced today that Wellborn Forest Products, a manufacturer of custom and
semi-custom frameless and framed cabinets, selected 20-20's InSight's
configurator and Microsoft Dynamics AX as their new enterprise technology
solution.
    When evaluating ERP vendors, Wellborn required a partner that could
provide a comprehensive manufacturing solution for their enterprise. After an
extensive evaluation period, Wellborn selected the integrated end-to-end
solution proposed by 20-20 Technologies and Microsoft. "As the leaders in
their respective industries, the strategic partnership between Microsoft and
20-20 Technologies will be a tremendous benefit to Wellborn Forest Products
manufacturing operations," said Gary Taylor, Chief Operating Officer of
Wellborn Forest Products. Key to the company's decision to implement inSight's
Configurator was the solution's stability, integration of all business
processes, parametric product configurator, and 20-20's focus on the Kitchen
manufacturing industry. "Additionally, with 20-20's electronic data
integration to 20-20's Design Software, we plan to extend the time-saving and
cost-cutting benefits of integration to our dealers. With inSight's
configurator and Microsoft's Dynamics AX ERP application, we will centralize
our business information and make information more accessible for our dealers,
suppliers, and manufacturing operations," said Gary Taylor.
    "20-20's strategy is to provide a seamless integration of data from the
consumer designing on the web, to the kitchen designer using 20-20 Design, and
into the cabinet manufacturer's ERP application. Our key initiative is to
focus on needs of the cabinet Manufacturer by developing solutions to help
them grow their revenues and profitability, including enhancing our catalog
tools to leverage the manufacturing data, web enabling our order entry and
electronic order processing application for easy access by dealers and
strengthening our ERP offering worldwide by leveraging Microsoft's Dynamics AX
core enterprise modules. We are extremely honored to have been selected as
Wellborn Forest's long-term strategic business partner," said Jean Mignault,
Co-Chairman of the Board and CEO of 20-20 Technologies.
