IPA Implements Rootstock Right on Schedule
IPA, a Georgia-based company dedicated to permanently reducing costs by automating the linen distribution process within healthcare facilities, implemented Rootstock – from the onsite meeting to “go live” in 20 weeks. This includes a downtime period planned by the IPA team from the start. Working with the IPA operations and accounting departments replacing an On-Premise ERP legacy system, not only was Rootstock software implemented but the Rootstock team also performed the FinancialForce.com implementation. Since IPA has a design engineering focus, the ability to support thousands items and extensive bills of material and revisions was critical, as was the need to support the accompanying inventory management and planning requirements that their designs demand.
As a lean manufacturer dedicated to continuous process improvement across their operations and business functions, IPA was looking for a comprehensive enterprise planning system that could not only replace their current legacy systems, but also could consolidate their operations onto a single platform, support their lean objectives and scale with their business. IPA conducted a rigorous evaluation of available software solutions, guided by consulting assistance from Georgia Tech.
IPA, used by over 300,000 clinicians every day, is a Georgia-based company dedicated to permanently reducing costs by automating the linen distribution process within healthcare facilities.
