RICHMOND, BC (July 8, 2010): Progressive Solutions is pleased to announce that Wilson Lumber is live on bisTrack, and has also elected to use the Managed Technical Services offering from Progressive Solutions (PSI) to monitor and manage their IT infrastructure.

Prior to signing with PSI, Wilson Lumber had mixed results with the success of their IT infrastructure. By deciding to  engage PSI to provide Managed Technical Services, they have been able to trust their ongoing system operations to a highly qualified group of experts committed to providing the highest possible level of system performance. When asked about the advantages of using PSI Managed Technical Services, Robb Wilson, IT Manager, said, “It’s the peace of mind and the knowledge that comes from knowing you are being taken care of.”

Wilson Lumber is a company built on high principles, with a reputation for putting their customers first. High principles were definitely an important factor during their system and software selection process. Robb  remembers thinking about PSI as good people with a great product, and today comments, “I’m dealing with people of integrity, and dealing with experts.”

Inspiring individual employee growth is also very important to Wilson Lumber. Robb commented on how  employees have grown throughout the implementation of bisTrack.  “The PSI experience has contributed to creating computer capable employees.  We want a culture that is technically savvy. Many of our employees knew how to use our legacy system but that was the only system they knew how to use. Now bisTrack meshes with everything.  It has helped our team become better problem solvers with more appreciation and understanding of how to use  bisTrack to do their jobs.”

Progressive Solutions is delighted to be able to partner with, and grow together with Wilson Lumber.
