Rootstock Software and Nanophase Technologies Showcase Cloud ERP Success at the First-Ever Salesforce Manufacturing Summit

Nanotech manufacturer improves order fulfillment cycle by 30%, establishes real-time operational metrics, and significantly reduces IT burden

Rootstock Software, the #1 Manufacturing ERP on the Salesforce Platform, is providing manufacturers like Nanophase Technologies with the modern technological capabilities and strategies to adapt and succeed in their digital transformation initiatives.

Today, manufacturers are at the center of a maelstrom, fighting to stay ahead of customer demand, striving to move from “just in time” to “just in case” supply chains, and realizing their ERPs are ill-equipped to keep pace with this level of change.

“Today, many manufacturers are coping with legacy ERP solutions,” said Stu Johnson, VP of Product Marketing at Rootstock Software. “We sponsored the Manufacturing Summit to bring industry leaders together to discuss their most pressing concerns and to learn how modern technologies like Rootstock Cloud ERP can help them facilitate greater supply chain collaboration, continuously improve their operations, and get more from their IT spend. Natively connecting manufacturing applications on the Salesforce Platform results in a ‘manufacturing operating system’ that can be tailored to almost any manufacturer.”

“It was a pleasure to present with Rootstock at the Manufacturing Summit,” said Judd. “We selected Rootstock because it’s ‘the choice’ for a manufacturing ERP built on the Salesforce Platform. This selection translated into seamless integration with other ecosystem applications and a lower cost of ownership. Overall, we were able to reduce our order fulfillment cycle by 30%. We established a number of real-time operational metrics that helped us respond to changing market conditions. And we’ve seen significant improvements in work efficiencies and reduced our IT burden by 25%—we expect to reduce this burden even further in the near future.”
