About the presentation
Andrew Russo, CIO of BACA Systems, explains how the demands of moving to next-generation manufacturing methods coupled with the demands of speed, mobility and flexibility in its business have forced the company to make some tough decisions. Russo details how BACA Systems justified the need to replace a relatively new ERP system, saw it as an opportunity to transform their entire business, and implemented a new platform in less than six months. You will leave this session with a thorough understanding of:
• How legacy, outdated, and inappropriate technology is holding your manufacturing business back.
• Why this manufacturing company chose Salesforce as their business platform to manage everything from sales leads and order fulfillment to after-sales service and support.
• How he developed a plan to quickly migrate to Rootstock Cloud ERP during the height of the pandemic.
• Where to focus when considering next-generation manufacturing capabilities.
• Why it’s never too late to overcome past technology decisions to prepare for tomorrow’s growth.
