Rootstock Software and FinancialForce.com Announce Partnership to Deliver Comprehensive Manufacturing and Accounting Solution on Force.com

Rootstock Software®, the leader in cloud manufacturing and supply chain applications, and FinancialForce.com, the cloud applications company, today announced an agreement to deliver a native end-to end-supply chain and accounting solution for salesforce.com customers including Astrum Solar, a full-service residential solar provider headquartered in Annapolis Junction, Maryland.

Manufacturers need to be responsive in real time to changes in supply and demand, while maintaining operational efficiencies to remain competitive. This requires them to evolve their manufacturing planning and control solutions. The combined Rootstock/FinancialForce Accounting solution provides manufacturers with the ability to streamline their global supply chain operations using applications that work together seamlessly. This real-time visibility across systems can deliver significantly better management insights and operational efficiencies.

“Astrum Solar’s rapid expansion facilitated our requirement for a solution that could interweave the ever-changing environment of the solar industry with the rapid development in our company,” said Vadim Polikov, President and Chief Executive Officer of Astrum Solar. “We chose this team because together they had the tightest integration in the marketplace with our own proprietary Force.com enterprise platform and that will enable our organization to sustain our flexibility and commitment to the customer, as we continue to grow our business and spread solar power to roofs across the country.”

By uniting Rootstock manufacturing and supply chain applications with FinancialForce Accounting, Salesforce CRM customers like Astrum Solar can gain deeper operational insights and control while minimizing painful and costly IT infrastructure modifications. The power of a shared platform enabled Rootstock and FinancialForce.com to quickly build a seamless integration between the applications that couldn’t be achieved if they didn’t share the same data model.

“In today’s fast-paced economy, the ability to track and adapt to any number of variables in real time is not just advantageous – it’s critical,” said Patrick Garrehy, CEO and founder of Rootstock Software. “Manufacturers working to secure a competitive edge are now looking to their planning and control solutions to deliver this increased agility. When this planning evolution is paired with a complete accounting solution, the result is an unparalleled and holistic systems overview.”

“Manufacturers need trusted applications to manage their global operations and financial transactions,” said Jeremy Roche, President and CEO, FinancialForce.com. “By combining Rootstock with FinancialForce Accounting, customers can leverage the power of the Force.com platform for not only greater operational efficiencies but for significant competitive advantage.“

Rootstock and FinancialForce.com are sponsors of the salesforce.com Cloudforce Social Enterprise Tour in Chicago on May 3 and Toronto on June 6 where the joint solution will be demonstrated at the Cloudforce expo.
