Rootstock has coverage for most of the Manufacturing, Service, Retail and Healthcare industries.

Regional coverage:

Customization/integration requirements:

Tips to make Rootstock Implementation most successful

Involvement of commitment: 

The implementation of an ERP system affects every department (Engineering, Procurement, Materials, Production, Sales, Accounting). There will be changes to present procedures and it may be that the changes in one department seem like ‘extra work’; yet for the efficient operation of the entire organization, there is less work and more timely information available once the system is live.

Effective Project Team:

An effective Project Manager for the company, well-respected throughout the organization, will help keep executive management involvement balanced and the more time dedicated to the project management daily will go a long way in ensuring that the implementation will be completed in a timely fashion. 

Every successful implementation has some time commitment from the key IT resource that is familiar with the Salesforce administration. 

Clean Data:

There is always a great requirement of data clean-up and conversion, whether from another automated system, a manual one, or a combination of both in the legacy system. And then giving clean data into the new ERP System helps both the parties in a successful implementation.
