For the fourth year in a row, WTS Paradigm, the established leader in configuration technology for the building products industry, held its Madison City Scour event for employees. The City Scour is an all-company event in which employees are divided into small teams and sent across downtown Madison in a competition to solve clues and take photos at different locations. A mix of trivia, photo clues, videos, and road block tasks combine to make the City Scour a dynamic and unique team-building adventure. Teams can go as quickly or as slowly as they want – the point is to get to know coworkers outside their regular work groups, build relationships, explore Madison, and have fun!
For the fifth year in a row, WTS Paradigm, the established leader in configuration technology for the building products industry, sponsored a local family (the Rodriguez family) through Habitat for Humanity of Dane County.

Western Window Systems (WWS) recently retired their old production computer system and software that was controlled by a System 36. Every order submitted to WWS used to be manually entered into a DOS-based program, this inefficient process was the result of the inability of System 36’s decades-old software to communicate with CustomView, their custom quoting system. WWS was able to streamline systems by utilizing WTS Paradigm technology from quote configuration to manufacturing. The WWS team and customers have already begun to see improvement by way of decreased errors, an increase in on-time shipments, and shorter lead times. To celebrate this change, WWS decided to do the only thing that made sense: re-create the famous printer destruction scene from “Office Space.”
