Rootstock Software, the leader in cloud manufacturing and supply chain applications, today announced that Rotary Airlock has gone live with Rootstock Manufacturing ERP software. The company, which re-engineers and remanufacturers standard to extra-large airlocks, was using a series of different software packages and needed to create an enterprise system with all software integrated.
“We started out selecting Salesforce as our CRM,” reports Glen McClure, Jr. “We then wanted to attach FinancialForce.com for our financial software and our ERP to Salesforce at the same time. We went to the Salesforce AppExchange and reviewed the Rootstock listing under its ERP page. We then gave them a call, told them what we needed and, upon their response, decided on Rootstock ERP. The two packages were added simultaneously. Now, our software is integrated and all the basics that we need are under one roof.”
“We expected there would be some hiccups in the installation and there were,” says McClure. “However, the Rootstock consultants were a joy to work with. They answered all of our questions and got us live. It was a pleasant experience to team with them.”
Although the ERP systems was installed only in January, Rotary Airlock ERP users have already noted that, when getting reports, the interface is much easier to use. One reason is that, with a Cloud-based ERP, access to information is from anywhere, at any time and by any device.
“Importantly, because the Force.com platform’s intent was to build development tools and capabilities that would attract independent software vendors, such as Rootstock, versus those that simply want to add spokes to an existing Cloud ERP solution, Salesforce ensures that there is adherence to standards for integration with their CRM software,” adds Pat Garrehy, CEO, Rootstock Software. “Thinking ahead, Salesforce has ensured that these same standards apply to other software developed on their platform so each software application can seamlessly integrate with others.”
