Pella Corporation - an 85-year-old window and door manufacturer - has a long tradition of product and service innovation, which is why the company is consistently forward-looking regarding technology. Pella signed a Microsoft Enterprise Client Access License (ECAL) Suite agreement to cost-effectively implement business and IT productivity solutions built on products such as Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 and Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007. Despite the recession and its negative impact on the construction industry, Pella has taken full advantage of the suite's software components, using them to automate workflow processes, reduce travel costs while maintaining effective meetings, streamline communications, transform training methods, and better support remote workers. Pella uses the ECAL to drive business success while saving hundreds of thousands of dollars each year.
