Global Shop Solutions Honors 25-Year Employee
Global Shop Solutions honors Debbie Wright, vice president of core programming, for 25 years of excellence.
Global Shop Solutions, a global developer of ERP software for manufacturers, recognized Debbie Wright for her 25th anniversary with the company. The company credits her contributions over the past 25 years for helping its software achieve its market growth.
Wright began her career with Global Shop Solutions as a programmer and worked her way up to her current position as vice president of core programming.
Since joining Global Shop Solutions, Wright has played a key role in building its ERP software. She designed and wrote many of its core systems, including the auto purchasing, floom, inventory and shop floor control modules, and serves as the go-to expert for these systems. She also designed and wrote the product configurator, an advanced software tool that simplifies order entry and quoting for manufacturers that make multifeatured parts.
“Debbie has also done extensive work in our accounting systems, making sure all the numbers tie together throughout the system,” says Erika Klein, vice president of research and development. “She currently leads our core programming team, which consists of senior analysts who develop new features and capabilities to keep our software current with the rapidly evolving manufacturing environment. Without her, Global Shop Solutions would not where we are today.”
Constantly Improving the Product
Dusty Alexander, president and CEO of Global Shop Solutions, ranks the development of the flooom costing tool as Wright’s biggest accomplishment. This software tool enables manufacturers to carry all cost elements for each part they make – freight, labor, outside, overhead, other and material – from quote to cash.
“In today’s markets, manufacturers must be able to determine their costs with precision,” Alexander says. “Debbie developed the flooom tool from scratch and engineered it through the entire system. She is everything we look for in an employee – tireless, determined and always seeking new ways to help our customers simplify their manufacturing.”
Dick Alexander, founder of Global Shop Solutions, agrees. “We were fortunate to have Debbie do some custom software engineering for us on a contract basis over 25 years ago,” he says. “We had never seen such speed and accuracy, and were even more fortunate to hire her full time. Debbie has been a major contributor to Global Shop Solutions’ success.”
