GWA Business Solutions Named 2017 CDN Channel Elite Awards Finalist

It’s like night and day with the new system and GWA was a critical piece of it all – and not just in solving our previous problems, but positioning us for the future. The new system has put us on an aggressive growth trajectory.

GWA Business Solutions, Inc. (GWA), a Toronto-area business software and technology provider, has been named a finalist for the 2017 CDN Channel Elite Awards. Issued annually by Computer Dealer News, Canada’s #1 IT channel publication and website, the award recognizes Canadian IT solution providers for their innovation, leadership and commitment to creating business value for customers.

GWA was nominated for its implementation of an end-to-end business management solution featuring Sage 300 accounting integrated with Isah Manufacturing software for Globe Imports, a furniture manufacturer based in Ontario. Globe Imports was growing fast but didn’t have the right systems in place to keep up with increased volume. Everything from order processing and production to warehouse operations and shipping was managed either using spreadsheets or paper combined with software that was misaligned for their manufacturing process. GWA had to make dynamic changes in Globe Imports business processes within a very short time and a fairly tight budget. Using the MAP approach for implementation, GWA began a course of action.

According to GWA founder and president Gail Wilson, “With Globe, there was nothing on the market or ‘out of the box’ that fit their needs perfectly so we knew that we had a challenge on our hands. To deliver the exact solution they needed at the best value, we guided them through the entire process – from software evaluation and selection through configuration, integration, and training. We also worked closely with other vendors and even helped Globe secure government funding for part of the project. In the end, we transitioned them from a system that relied heavily on paper and sticky notes to a fully-integrated accounting and manufacturing system that automates their entire business.”

The transformation has produced immediate benefits while, at the same time, opening the door to a brighter future, says Al-Karim Chatur at Globe Imports. “I can’t tell you how challenging it was to run the business and manage growth before the change. It’s like night and day with the new system and GWA was a critical piece of it all – and not just in solving our previous problems, but positioning us for the future. The new system has put us on an aggressive growth trajectory. We’ve already added more customers and expect to grow by 200 percent over the next five years. It was an award-worthy project executed by an equally worthy technology provider in GWA Business Solutions.”

Channel Elite Award recipients will be named and all finalists recognized at CDN’s Channel Elite Awards Gala, held September 27, 2017, at the Paramount Conference & Event Venue in Woodbridge, Ontario.
