Proveris Scientific Leverages salesforce.com with Rootstock Cloud ERP

February 25, 2014



“Using Rootstock manufacturing ERP, we will be able to plan based upon our real-time salesforce.com pipelines and forecasts.”

SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Rootstock Software®, the leader in cloud manufacturing and supply chain applications, today announced that it is helping Proveris Scientific (Marlborough, Mass.) stop overbuying parts and materials just to assure that it has enough in inventory to meet order demand for its nasal and aerosol testing instrumentation. With Rootstock’s cloud manufacturing ERP, the company will be able to determine how many of its most popular machines can be built with the inventory on hand.

“We were constantly trying to get the answers to such questions,” emphasizes Dino Farina, Proveris Scientific founder and CEO. “By the time we finally got the data, the answers were too late. With Rootstock’s ERP, we will now be able to not only find out how many units we can manufacture with the inventory on hand but whether we need more inventory, how much, how soon and at what cost. This will make our business more efficient by increasing our cash flow and improving our resource planning, while giving our customers faster deliveries on their orders.”

Farina and his team spent two years looking for the right manufacturing ERP. A major requirement was that the new ERP had to interface with Proveris Scientific’s salesforce.com® suite and work in the cloud.

“We looked at 15 packages and, from the beginning, we were impressed with Rootstock,” adds Farina. “Their people are honest, almost to a fault. We’re a small company and Rootstock was concerned that we might be too small to take them on at present so we held off for a year until meeting with them again at Dreamforce 2013. During that time, Rootstock had built a team to fully implement and support FinancialForce.com®. That was music to our ears. Using Rootstock manufacturing ERP, we will be able to plan based upon our real-time salesforce.com pipelines and forecasts.”

“To organizations such as Proveris Scientific, cash flow is key and overbuying materials and parts can wreak havoc,” explains Rootstock founder and CEO Pat Garrehy. “For Proveris Scientific, the Rootstock MRP will delineate their sales order and forecast demands in conjunction with the effective production bill of material and, by reviewing item inventory balances, will generate planned supplies in a time phase manner to offset the outstanding demands for end items and sub assemblies.”
