IMTS 2022 Conference: Making Hard Decisions Quickly in Our Fast-Changing Manufacturing Industry

Learn why and how you should upgrade your technology in a fast-changing industry.

August 3, 2022

About the presentation
Andrew Russo, CIO of BACA Systems, explains how the demands of moving to next-generation manufacturing methods coupled with the speed, mobility, and flexibility demands of its business forced the company to make some hard decisions. Russo details how BACA Systems justified the need to replace a relatively new ERP system, saw it as an opportunity to transform its entire business, and implemented a new platform in under six months. You’ll leave this session with a deep understanding of:

• How legacy, dated, and ill-suited technology prevents your manufacturing business from moving forward.
• Why this manufacturing company committed to Salesforce as its business platform to manage everything from sales leads, to order execution, to aftermarket service and support.
• How it built a plan to quickly migrate to Rootstock Cloud ERP during the height of the pandemic.
• Where you need to focus as you consider next-generation manufacturing capabilities.
• Why it’s never too late to overcome past technology decisions to prepare for tomorrow’s growth.
