San Ramon, CA (May 23, 2024) – Rootstock Software, a recognized leader in the Manufacturing ERP space, will demonstrate its latest capabilities at the Smart Manufacturing Experience, which will be held at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center in Pittsburgh from June 4th to 5th. This event is set to shine a light on the disruptive technologies that are transforming today’s manufacturing industry.

Attendees will have the opportunity to engage with Rootstock experts, receive demos of the company’s latest ERP and AI capabilities, and hear firsthand how customers have used Rootstock to unlock their full potential for growth, productivity, and success.

“The Smart Manufacturing Experience offers a phenomenal forum for manufacturers to come together to learn how to make their operations more intelligent and efficient. Pittsburgh is the perfect backdrop, as the city has strong roots in the steel industry and has diversified into various sectors including advanced manufacturing, robotics, medical device, and high-tech,” said Stu Johnson, Vice President of Product Marketing at Rootstock Software. “We’re excited to demonstrate our latest ERP and AI capabilities in the context of our new 2024 manufacturing survey. Results will be available prior to the event. A key finding is that manufacturers are clamoring to invest in AI that truly matters and can impact their operations.”

Manufacturers can meet the team at booth 617, discuss findings from the company’s 2024 tech survey, and learn more about the following Rootstock innovations and accolades:

  • Signal Chain Decisioning Platform. AIRS™ (AI from Rootstock) leverages the company’s unique ERP datasets. It also assembles data from across CRM, SCM, PLM, and other ecosystem applications into a common data model to facilitate a complete Signal Chain Decisioning Platform. With AIRS providing predictive and generative AI capabilities, manufacturers can more effectively foresee risks and opportunities across their organization. And with continually updated signals, AIRS can recalculate projections and enable dynamic adjustments to order-to-cash, procure-to-pay, and plan-to-produce processes.
  • Next-Generation MRP. With these AI capabilities, Rootstock is taking Material Requirements Planning (MRP) to the next level, so much so the company refers to these capabilities as MRP++. Using these features, manufacturers will be able to predict lead times, foresee production bottlenecks, more accurately allocate materials and resources, and reduce waste. By forecasting demand and adjusting procurement dynamically, manufacturers will be able to run their plants more profitably.
  • Award-winning ERP. In the past month, Rootstock has been honored with two prestigious accolades. First, it was named a Partner in Collaborative Innovation in the 2024 Manufacturing Leadership Awards. This was for its role in Architectural Fabrication’s “Collaborative Ecosystem” project, which enabled this customer to increase project manager capacity by an impressive 300%. Rootstock’s Manufacturing ERP also received the Gold Stevie® Award in the Best Cloud ERP category.
