Emissive Energy Corporation Chooses Rootstock Software® for SaaS MRP Solution

Lighting Equipment Provider Selects Rootstock for Improved Manufacturing Planning Capabilities

SAN RAMON, Calif, April 30, 2010 – Rootstock Software®, leading Software as a Service (SaaS) manufacturing solution provider to the mid-market, announced today that Emissive Energy Corporation, innovative manufacturer of LED lighting whose products have set many new standards in the advancement of portable illumination, has selected Rootstock manufacturing software.

Emissive Energy Corporation selected the Rootstock Material Requirements Planning (MRP) Lite solution because of its robust manufacturing planning capabilities that also includes out of the box integration with Emissive Energy’s current SaaS ERP system that they have been using for 7 years.  MRP Lite leverages Rootstock’s industry leading planning engine and delivers complete material planning capabilities critical to Emissive Energy Corporation operations.

The ability to effectively plan purchasing and manufacturing is vital in any manufacturing company.  The ‘Available to Promise’ screen supported by MRP with leadtime planning provides Emissive Energy the opportunity to see what is remaining to promise their customers within time fenced ‘buckets’. For Emissive Energy, they required a MRP solution that would generate planned supplies in a time phased manner to offset outstanding customer demand for end items and sub assemblies.  Emissive chose Rootstock specifically for these capabilities.  Rootstock’s MRP Lite generates planned work orders and planned purchase requisitions for purchase or sub-contract items based on real customer demand.  This enables Emissive with improved operational efficiencies as well as greater visibility into their supply chain ultimately resulting in improved customer service.

“Rootstock MRP Lite was the perfect solution for Emissive Energy,” said Lennie Stalaboin, General Manager, for Emissive Energy Corporation.   “Rootstock delivered a complete MRP planning solution that included out of the box integration with our current SaaS ERP.  No other vendor could provide us with a cost effective yet robust solution to meet our business needs.”

“MRP Lite provides a flexible solution to mid market manufacturers like Emissive Energy Corporation with shorter implementations, lower costs and quick return on investment”, said Patrick Garrehy, CEO and Founder of Rootstock Software®.  “Requiring dramatically less planner time, Rootstock MRP Lite recoups your investment in just a few months while delivering a robust MRP solution, coupled with Bill of Material Engineering Change and Revision Control, enabling you to be more responsive to changing customer needs.”

Rootstock Software® was launched in 2008 to response to the growing need for a SaaS solution for mid market manufacturers to cut costs, improve processes, and drive revenues.  Rootstock partners with industry leaders like NetSuite to deliver these critical manufacturing capabilities to the underserved mid-market with minimal IT infrastructure investment.
