Rootstock Software, a provider of cloud manufacturing and supply chain applications, has teamed with FinancialForce.com, a company that creates applications on Salesforce.com’s Force.com platform, to deliver an end-to end supply chain and accounting solution for Salesforce customers including Astrum Solar, a residential solar provider headquartered in Annapolis Junction, Md.
Using a shared platform enabled Rootstock and FinancialForce.com to build a seamless integration between the applications that couldn't be achieved if they didn't share the same data model. Vadim Polikov, president and CEO of Astrum Solar, said the accounting software was appealing to his company because it offered “the tightest integration in the marketplace with our own proprietary Force.com enterprise platform.”
According to the two companies, the combined Rootstock/FinancialForce accounting solution gives manufacturers like Astrum Solar the ability to streamline their global supply chain operations using applications that work together. The resulting visibility across systems can deliver improved management insights and operational efficiencies.
"Manufacturers working to secure a competitive edge are now looking to their planning and control solutions to deliver increased agility,” said Patrick Garrehy, CEO and founder of Rootstock Software. “When this planning evolution is paired with a complete accounting solution, the result is an unparalleled and holistic systems overview."
Rootstock and FinancialForce.com will demonstrate the joint solution during the Cloudforce Social Enterprise Tour in Toronto on June 6.
