Free Rootstock Manufacturing Cloud ERP Webinar Steps Through 3 Major Enterprise Flows
Rootstock Software®, the leader in cloud manufacturing and supply chain applications, recently announced that companies needing to update their ERP system can overview moving to a Manufacturing Cloud ERP solution in a free webinar commencing March 30. They will also learn how to support the three major flows within the enterprise – Quote to Cash, Procure to Pay and Plan to Purchase.
“To succeed in today’s dynamic, evolving markets, companies need to be active, agile, mobile and connected to real time data,” says Rootstock CEO Pat Garrehy. “The legacy systems of old can no longer scale fast enough to keep up with business demands, not to mention being difficult and expensive to maintain. This seminar will show them how a cloud-based manufacturing ERP can address every aspect of their business including the three major flows.”
No other process has more touchpoints with the customer than the Quote to Cash process. From the point of identifying an opportunity in one’s Salesforce CRM, the Manufacturing Cloud ERP takes the handoff and runs with it. Users can build quotes for simple or complex manufactured items, take the customer through a guided selling process, configure to order and produce pricing scenarios.
Procure to Pay (Purchase to Pay or P2P) is the process of obtaining and managing the raw materials needed for manufacturing a product or providing a service. It involves pricing to quote creation to invoicing and through to payment receipt. The process should be seamless from point of order to payment and that is exactly what Cloud Manufacturing ERP ensures.
Cloud Manufacturing ERP users can also turn demand into shipped product. Demand can come from sales, forecasts and manufacturing requirements. MRP analyzes the demand requirements and plans the supply as purchases, sub-contracts and work orders. Capacity planning and scheduling provide the sanity check to turn the material plan into reality. Work orders are the vehicle for communicating the manufacturing requirements to the floor and the collection point for costs, from time cards, material issues and more. Completion of items into stock or to shipping make inventory available for order fulfillment.
