Pioneer Motor Bearing is a 100-year old family business that continues to innovate and make adjustments to their business model.
Ten years ago, they started to move their business systems to the cloud. They knew it would give them the ability to more easily update and customize systems to fit their business needs. What they didn’t know then, is how the combination of Salesforce and Rootstock Manufacturing would help them transform their business ten years later.
A Salesforce implementation in 2010, led them to replace their legacy ERP system with Rootstock Cloud ERP in 2015. Their seamless integration with Salesforce and the ability for Rootstock to handle multiple manufacturing environments, meant Pioneer could evolve their business without investing in another system.
Pioneer reimagined how they do business in 2019. Because they were able to easily customize and configure new screens and apps, they were quickly able to modify their systems to fit the new business model. They are confident that Rootstock will support their business well into the future.
When COVID-19 forced their office employees to work remotely, they were ready with their cloud-based infrastructure, Salesforce and Rootstock Cloud ERP.
Pioneer is feeling the long-term effects of Rootstock Cloud ERP and Salesforce. The vision they had of the benefits of moving to the cloud have become a reality. They have a 360-degree view of the customer and are using data to continue to transform the business.
Whether you’re a start-up, or an established 100-year-old family business like our long-time customer Pioneer Bearings, every company needs a solid foundation to build on. Your ERP system can provide that foundation, and the right system will help you more easily adapt to the rapid pace of change. It can help you stay competitive.
Innovation and operational agility are more important today than ever before. You need a 360-degree view of the customer to quickly respond to customer needs and changes in how they want to do business. You need to adapt to shifting supply chains and new business models.
Companies that rely on an older, legacy ERP system can find themselves at a competitive disadvantage. Unable to make needed changes to their systems fast enough to keep up with their business needs, they depend on software code changes that can only be done by the developer or a third-party consultant. That can cost both time and money that would be better spent somewhere else.
Rootstock Cloud ERP built on the Salesforce Cloud Platform, provides a modern ERP solution that can grow and change with your business. Rootstock’s “clicks not code” or “low-code” approach gives your internal admins and power users the ability to create new screens, mobile apps, and custom processes without getting into the underlying software code.
Salesforce CRM and Rootstock Cloud ERP gives you the full, 360-degree view of the customer that connects sales, operations, finance, service, marketing and more. That’s a combination that can have positive long-term effects on your business, your customers, and your bottom line.
