We know that our Cloud ERP solution can help manufacturing firms reduce costs, increase sales and customer satisfaction, speed up operations and enjoy greater profitability. Apparently, thought leaders and experts in our industry agree with us. We are proud to have received THINKstrategies’ Best of SaaS Showplace Award (BoSS), which recognizes SaaS companies that are delivering measurable business benefits to specific user organizations.
THINKstrategies, Inc. is a leading strategic consulting company and they focus on the business implications of the cloud computing services market. The BoSS Awards promote the measurable business benefits delivered by today’s Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions.
The BoSS Award recognized Rootstock customers who have gained significant business benefits from our cloud ERP solutions. For example, Direct Energy Solar was able to reduce its monthly inventory adjustments from upwards of $100,000 to less than $10,000 even as the company grew 2,000 percent. Another Rootstock customer, 1st Light Energy, replaced an eight-step manual customer on-boarding process to just two clicks that saves 25 man-hours per month.
Jeffrey M. Kaplan, managing director of THINKstrategies, the strategic consulting firm that conceived and administers the Cloud Computing Showplace, noted that “Rootstock’s Cloud-based applications clearly illustrate how a new generation of ‘back-office’ SaaS solutions are changing how businesses can operate.”
“Our expert team,” said Rootstock CEO Pat Garrehy, “has built the most comprehensive end-to-end ERP on Salesforce, the world’s number one business applications platform. Our absolute commitment to building the best product possible, coupled with a 100 percent dedication to the success of our customers, has enabled us to deliver them stellar results.”
The BoSS Award is only the latest award that Rootstock has won. In October 2016, we won Frost & Sullivan’s Technology Leadership Award, and more recently, we were named a finalist in the 2016-2017 Cloud Awards Program in the category Best Cloud HR, Payroll, or ERP Solution. In addition to these awards, we also won the Salesforce Demo Jam in December 2016.
In awarding us the Technology Leadership Award, Frost & Sullivan confirmed what we’ve been saying for a while now, that our cloud ERP solution provides a true cloud solution with end-to-end coverage for an entire organization. According to Frost & Sullivan, “Rootstock has secured an edge for itself over its competitors by building a broad and deep end-to-end functional cloud ERP solution.”
Frost & Sullivan’s analysis found that “Rootstock’s cloud ERP properly addresses the complexities challenging the growth of the North American medical device industry. Other companies have not been able to build a functional product similar to that of Rootstock’s cloud ERP within the same time frame that Rootstock has achieved.”
The Cloud Awards is an international program, which has been recognizing and honoring industry leaders, innovators and organizational transformation in cloud computing since 2011. The awards were created to find and celebrate the pioneers who will shape the future of the Cloud as we move into the future. Entries are accepted from organizations of all sizes, including start-ups government bodies, and come from all over the world, including the US, Canada, Europe, Middle East, Asia and Australasia.
Cloud Awards organizer Larry Johnson said: “In our sixth year of recognizing and celebrating excellence and innovation in the cloud, the standard of entries has been staggering.”
Salesforce holds a monthly Salesforce Demo Jam, and Rootstock was named the winner for December 2016. The Salesforce Demo Jam features multiple AppExchange partners showcasing their solution with a real-time demo in three minutes. Rootsock’s Rilene Simpson presented in December and the audience of other AppExchange partners selected us as the winner. The Salesforce Demo Jam video is available on YouTube here.
Industry awards are important, and not only to us. If you’re a manufacturer who’s looking to the cloud for an end-to-end ERP solution that will increase efficiency, reduce costs and increase revenue, then it’s important for you to know more about the cloud-based solutions that are available to you.
We believe that awards from industry thought leaders and experts are proof that we are providing the ideal cloud ERP solution. It’s easy for a company to say that they have the best product; every cloud ERP vendor says that. But when industry leaders recognize us with awards, like the BoSS Award and the Frost & Sullivan Award, it provides manufacturers like you with evidence that backs up our claims. With Rootstock, you can trust that you’re getting a cloud ERP solution that has been recognized as the best.
Rootstock Cloud ERP for Manufacturing on the Salesforce platform provides the kind of end-to-end cloud solution that manufacturers are looking for. Don’t take our word for it. With our current run of awards, trusted industry leaders are saying it too.
