Small and midsized manufacturers make up the backbone of the industrial economy. Yet, even though these businesses may not have billion-dollar balance sheets, they are still driven to modernize, optimize, and digitize how their businesses work. Cloud-based ERP makes those efforts attainable, affordable, and transformational for manufacturers of any size. Now, Nucleus Research is helping you identify the best ERP for your manufacturing business, and it has recognized Rootstock as a Leader.


Small and midsized businesses (SMBs) are rapidly adopting cloud-based technologies due to the ease and speed of deployment, simplicity, mobile capabilities, constant innovation, low cost, and so many other benefits. For SMB manufacturers, however, it can feel as if technology providers are focused less on companies of your still-significant size and more on the “white whales” of the world.

For you, we’re excited to share that Nucleus Research recently released its inaugural “Small and Midsize Business ERP Value Matrix” ranking ERP solutions providers for companies just like you. We’re even more excited to share that Rootstock has been named a Leader on this ERP SMB Value Matrix.

Catering to the Unique Needs of SMB Manufacturers

Rootstock works with scores of SMB manufacturers. Companies like Matouk, Pioneer Motor Bearing, SPR Therapeutics, and others face challenges like budget constraints, resource limitations, tight timelines, and operational hurdles that large businesses don’t. We’ve worked hard to make it easier for these manufacturers to realize the same cloud-based benefits as the bigger companies.

Nucleus Research considered these challenges, too. This new Value Matrix specifically looked at adoption, implementation, time-to-value, total cost of ownership, and other top SMB concerns as it evaluated ERP vendors. Nucleus also considered if vendors were tightly integrated with ERP-adjacent solutions like CRM; had strategic partnerships with other technology platforms to cover quality, compliance, and other industry-specific needs; and if their solutions had the modern flexibility of low/no-code configurations and app development.

For our capabilities in these areas and more, Rootstock was named a Leader by Nucleus Research.
