Long before the development of the now ubiquitous Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system, manufacturing companies were using what was essentially its precursor – Materials Requirement Planning (MRP). Designed to plan the raw material requirements for manufacturing products, MRP evolved over time to encompass more and more of the manufacturing process. When it expanded across sectors and embraced the rest of the business processes required to keep a company running successfully it finally became the ERP we know today.
These days most ERP solutions are broadly-based systems with a breadth of coverage that extends well beyond the initial manufacturing focus and so many software solutions are regarded by the market as ERP even though they do not cover manufacturing processes.
Rootstock, on the other hand is differentiated in two main ways. Firstly, it is authentically an ERP solution, with manufacturing capability at its very core and, secondly, it is a true cloud product that is designed and built for the cloud from the very outset. It is this relatively rare combination which makes the Rootstock offering innovative, along with other notable features as well.
Although it is a fully fledged ERP solution, Rootstock Software chose not to be all things to all people. Instead they chose to concentrate on being the best cloud ERP system for the manufacturing, distribution and supply chain sector, taking the ERP idea back to its roots.
Founded in 2008 by software architect and engineer Pat Garrehy, Rootstock Software develops and implements Cloud ERP software that helps manufacturers and distributors deliver personalized customer experiences, build operations that scale and out-service their competition. It has been developed to run on the Salesforce platform, which brings with it further innovative capabilities.
In this innovation showcase we highlight three key Rootstock Software innovations, namely; (i)Authentic ERP with a manufacturing, distribution and supply chain focus, (ii) True multi-tenanted cloud ERP and (iii) Salesforce CRM integration with 360 degree visibility of customers.
