Global Shop Solutions to Build New Customer Training Facility
In conjunction with their 40 years in business, Global Shop Solutions, a leading developer of enterprise resource planning (ERP) software, broke ground on its third state-of-the art facility at its headquarters in The Woodlands, Texas on Friday, April 8, 2016. The 10,000 square-foot facility will be home to a reception area, a 72-seat training room, a community dining/kitchen area, an outdoor covered patio designed to seat up to 100 people, customer account representatives, and executive offices including Founder Dick Alexander and President and CEO Dusty Alexander.
“Due to the increased growth of our company, we felt it was time to expand our capabilities and provide opportunity for a greater training capacity and an increased collaboration between Global Shop Solutions R&D and Service departments with our customers,” says project manager and Director of HR Jayland Keeney. “It is our intent to provide the absolute best product on the market. We achieve this by hiring and retaining talented individuals and providing them a great place to work complete with state-of-the art facilities and a family-like atmosphere.”
In 1999 Global Shop Solutions made its headquarters in The Woodlands, Texas, with the opening of The Kathie Alexander Building. For over 15 years, the building was home to all Global Shop Solutions employees, but within the last five years, a focus on innovation and simplifying manufacturing has led to the hiring of over 100 individuals, requiring more space to accommodate top of the line employees. In May 2015, Global Shop Solutions announced the opening of the new R&D Technology Center to support the next generation of the company’s ERP software, existing customer requirements and new sales opportunities and markets. The family-owned business made a significant infrastructure investment to support its explosive growth and ongoing R&D initiatives, and is continuing to do so with the ground breaking of the third building.
LDF Construction, BD Electric, Zeigler Cooper Architects, and Steelcase/will all be represented to complete this impressive project. With an expected completion date of April 1, 2017, this new building will pave the way for future innovation within the ERP software industry and bring business to the surrounding area. With a larger training room higher volumes of customers attending our various ERP training programs throughout the year is expected, ultimately leading to more business for local hotels, fine dining restaurants and recreational activities.
