Pella Corporation has been a respected window and door maker for more than 80 years. As its product lines expanded, manufacturing plants multiplied, and competition stiffened, Pella found it difficult to promptly meet customer needs. The company made a strategic decision to optimize its entire IT infrastructure to create a more consistent, stable, agile foundation on which to grow the business. Pella modernized desktop and server software with the latest Microsoft programs to boost productivity and simplify support, and installed the latest Microsoft management and security technologies to centrally manage everything and help protect systems. As a result, Pella has created an infrastructure that accommodates the latest innovations, improves communication and collaboration, increases technology reliability, and reduces costs across the board.
