Cloud supply chain and manufacturing Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solution provider, Rootstock Software, has announced the acquisition of Kenandy Inc., a developer of cloud ERP software.
Rockstock said the deal solidifies its standing as a leading developer of cloud ERP applications focused on the needs of manufacturers, distributors and supply chain organisations utilising the Salesforce Platform.
“By combining the talent, skills and intellectual property of both companies, Rootstock will achieve greater economies of scale to compete with the likes of Oracle-NetSuite, Microsoft and SAP, while giving us the ability to create more cutting-edge capabilities for Kenandy and Rootstock customers,” said Patrick Garrehy, CEO of Rootstock.
“Both Rootstock and Kenandy are known for taking a customer-centric approach to ERP, and this furthers Rootstock’s recent focus on advancing personalized manufacturing with capabilities that deliver a more individualized customer experience across all customer touch points in an organisation.”
The deal means that customers will be able to utilise a combination of Rootstock Cloud ERP, Salesforce Sales Cloud, Salesforce Service Cloud and the underlying Salesforce Platform technologies, such as Salesforce IoT and Einstein Analytics.
“As the cloud marketplace has matured, buyers are increasingly making CRM and ERP decisions in the context of an overall cloud platform strategy,” said Garrehy. “This acquisition creates a bigger, stronger entity focused on building cloud ERP applications for those who choose the Salesforce Platform as their underlying technology.
“When it comes to cloud ERP implementations, customer success is often determined by how you implement, not just what you implement.
“Our combined company is dedicated to making the transition from legacy ERP easier for our customers. We welcome Kenandy customers into the Rootstock fold.”
