David Stephans, Chief Revenue Officer of Rootstock Software, in a September 28th interview with Steve Brooks, Enterprise Times, makes the case for manufacturing operations to adopt cloud-based ERP technology now. Rootstock is a leading cloud-based ERP vendor built on the Salesforce Platform for manufacturing, distribution, inventory management and supply chain operations.

Asserting that a cloud-based ERP transformation will win the competitive edge in manufacturing, Stephans offers two key drivers of change: strategic trends and value driven trends. He claims operations that move to a cloud-based ERP and IoT will gain cost saving benefits and earn a competitive edge in product personalization. Cloud-based ERP systems connect all the data silos and deliver the kind of opportunities in real-time links to suppliers, customers and the new knowledge-based workers manufacturers now need to win the product service and customization battle.
