Rootstock Cloud ERP Turns the Light on Northeast Lantern’s Manufacturing Processes

Northeast Lantern Will Have Vision on Its Production Flow

SAN FRANCISCO — (BUSINESS WIRE) — February 5, 2014Rootstock Software®, the leader in cloud manufacturing and supply chain applications, today announced that Northeast Lantern (Exeter, NH) has selected Rootstock’s Cloud Manufacturing ERP to track inventory and have vision on its production flow on the floor. This is especially important as twenty percent of the high quality solid brass and copper lanterns manufacturer’s output is custom and the company provides a lifetime guarantee.

“We have been running all of our reports in Quickbooks,” reports Northeast Lantern Vice President Christopher Heal. “We then need to take the various reports, export them into Excel and formulate a single new report just to find the information we need. Nonetheless, we still don’t track inventory or have a snapshot of our production flow. Rootstock’s manufacturing ERP will now help us do that, which will mean our customers will be able to get product faster.”

“To assure they continue to make a top quality product and make their manufacturing processes more efficient, a company such as Northeast Lantern requires a scheduling engine that dates work order operation routing steps (which can be sequential or concurrent) and processes them against a comprehensive set of prioritization rules,” explains Pat Garrehy, CEO and founder of Rootstock Software. “Northeast Lantern must be able to easily reprioritize work orders visually with drag-and-drop capacity planning screens. They need to quickly locate overloaded work centers or late work orders by color and, then, go to another tab in the capacity planning screens and see all of the shop orders for a particular job.”

“Rootstock’s presentation and ability to fill all of our gaps was met during our initial meeting,” says Heal. “They not only sealed those cracks but went into detail on other areas that we will eventually want to leverage. Going beyond the robust offerings, though, what is especially important to Northeast Lantern is that we now have the ability to migrate our customer base over to salesforce.com and our accounting over to FinancialForce.com with a single switch.

“We originally thought there would be a single module that really stood out,” adds Heal. "However, what impressed us is that each Rootstock module spoke to the others without any thinking or button-pushing by us. Going from an elementary system, we are moving to a robust solution that can handle our entire inventory and work orders simultaneously and flawlessly. It is a major benefit to Northeast Lantern that the modules can also effectively communicate with salesforce.com and FinancialForce.com.”
