Louisiana-Pacific Corporation optimizes global warranty processes with Mize Warranty Software
Louisiana-Pacific Corporation (“LP”), a global leader in engineered wood products, implements Mize Warranty solution to streamline warranty management.
Tampa, FL, and Nashville, TN April 8, 2019 – Mize, a leading provider of Connected Customer Experience Platform and Service Lifecycle Management software announced today that LP Building Solutions had launched a global Warranty Management solution powered by Mize software for Support, Service, Inspections, and Warranty.
LP is a leading manufacturer of quality engineered wood building materials including OSB, structural framing products, and exterior siding for use in residential, industrial and light commercial construction. Its products are covered by industry-leading warranties involving multiple channels, on site investigations, customer correspondence, claim settlement, and potential payments to multiple parties.
Mize Warranty solution enables LP to manage and track the entire warranty process including warranty entitlements, product registration, claims entry, submission, and processing from various channels including web, mobile, email, and phone.
“We had multiple legacy claim systems which made it difficult to standardize on common processes globally. It was difficult to modify and maintain these multiple systems. Mize solution consolidates the multiple legacy systems into a single global application.” remarks Vance Thomas, Corporate Warranty Manager at LP. “We selected Mize as our solution partner because the Mize software allows us to leverage the industry best practices, standardize processes across claim groups, provide flexibility for future processes, and have a significant improvement in data quality and analytics.”
The flexibility of Mize solution allows LP to manage various warranty policies, business rules, workflows, forms, and correspondence templates to meet the needs of various regions, product groups, and third-party contractors. With the Inspections app from Mize, the LP team can perform field inspections on any mobile device and generate warranty investigation reports. Mize mobile app on iOS and Android allows field inspectors to capture inspection data and pictures to support the claim process. All the communication is captured and tracked for each case and claim including emails, comments, and pictures. Mize application is integrated with SAP for financial and payment transactions.
“Mize is excited that LP implemented the Mize platform and warranty solution to automate and streamline their entire warranty lifecycle,” said Ashok Kartham, CEO of Mize. “Our solution enables LP to streamline and standardize the claims process across all product lines and geographies allowing better data capture as well as greater flexibility.
