Global Shop Solutions Director of New Implementations Achieves 20-Year Milestone

 

One of the most important aspects of ERP software for manufacturers is the stability of the software provider. Global Shop
Solutions, a family-owned ERP provider for almost 50 years, is proud to recognize Chris Pinaire, MBA, Director of New Implementations, for his 20 years of dedicated service to the manufacturing industry.


Pinaire began his career with Global Shop Solutions as a customer service representative. With his background in management information systems and keen problem-solving abilities, he was quickly promoted to helping manufacturers
successfully implement ERP software and consulting with existing customers to simplify their manufacturing processes. After several years as a senior consultant, Pinaire was elevated to his current position where he has had a significant impact on the
manufacturing industry.

“Chris is smart, hardworking and constantly looking for ways to make the implementation process faster and easier,” says Dusty Alexander, Global Shop Solutions President and CEO. “He manages a team of more than 70 implementation
specialists, who average a 95% success rate for new implementations. His commitment to excellence makes us better every day.” 

Pinaire attributes his tenure at Global Shop Solutions to the work, the people, and the satisfaction of helping manufacturers solve problems and find the best solutions for their businesses.


“The work is interesting and challenging,” says Pinaire. “There’s never a dull moment and I love the people I work with. We operate as a unified team and always support each other to find the best solutions for our customers.”


“I also admire the way Global Shop Solutions grows its people internally,” adds Pinaire. “Keeping people interested requires having a path for them to grow. Five, 10 or 15 years ago we didn’t have a lot of positions that exist today. Adding new positions as the business grew provided a path to keep our employees hungry and growing, playing a key role in the stability of our workforce.”


For Pinaire, it’s ultimately all about helping the people associated with Global Shop Solutions achieve the results they want.


“I’m motivated by helping our customers and my employees grow,” he says. “Transforming an inefficient, manual, paper-driven company into a lean, paperless manufacturing enterprise makes all the time, effort and travel worthwhile. It is
exceptionally rewarding to grow our new consultants into confident, independent experts.”
