Rootstock to supply Cloud ERP to Pioneer Motor Bearing

March 31, 2014 – Pioneer Motor Bearing Company has chosen Rootstock’s Cloud ERP to replace its on-premise legacy ERP software, which will consolidate all of Pioneer’s key metrics onto the Force.complatform. Founded in 1920, Pioneer Motor Bearing provides original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and end users with world-class custom fluid film bearing engineering, manufacturing and repair expertise, primarily in the electric power generation and oil and gas markets.

Pioneer discovered the AppExchange, the ecosystem of business enterprise software applications native to the Force.com platform, and applications there that made it easy to adopt more complex functionality. Pioneer was “blown away” at how easy it was to install new applications, an experience Pioneer’s CEO, Gordon Bardet, says he enjoys on his tablet but didn’t expect to see for enterprise software. “Being able to get a 360 degree view of our customers has always been our focus, and Rootstock, with their FinancialForce partnership, is an important piece of that mission.”

Pioneer is excited to be an early adopter of Cloud-based ERP software after Rootstock demonstrated it provides traditional shop scheduling with a modern user interface that makes shop-floor control and capacity planning more efficient.

“Pioneer Motor Bearing was especially impressed with our Capacity Planning module,” adds Pat Garrehy, president and CEO of Rootstock. “As a manufacture-to-order job-shop, it is imperative to them that they can quickly schedule their shop and maximize efficiency. They were especially excited about how they could benefit from our drag-and-drop shop floor features.”

Jeremy Bardet explains, “Rootstock continues to rapidly develop new features, which is what we expect from today’s leading cloud applications. Consistently receiving these feature upgrades justifies the subscription-based pricing model.” Bardet emphasizes, “We do not manufacture to a sales forecast or an inventory, so it is imperative we have lean but powerful systems.”
