About the Customer
Direct Energy Solar was founded as Astrum Solar in 2008 with the mission to spread solar across the rooftops of America while providing an exceptional customer experience. Creating satisfied customers resulted in the rapid growth of the company as it expanded nationally over the next six years.
Scope and Challenges
As a manufacturer, Direct Energy needed a system complex enough to handle all the different varieties and ways to obtain, assemble, and deliver things. Not only that, they needed a partner who understood those complexities, who had been there and could walk with them every step of the way.
Outcome and Implications
Stephen believes Rootstock may be implemented even faster now since we were the first. Today, every aspect of our business is covered by Rootstock, from purchasing to work order management, to field service and maintenance, bill of materials everything goes through Rootstock. Because of Rootstock, we have real-time inventory management.
"We looked at every ERP vendor on Salesforce, and none of them came close – on the feature set, on the ability to deliver on time," said Stephen Simons, CIO, Direct Energy Solar. "Prior to Rootstock, the company had monthly inventory adjustments of nearly 5%. Since implementing Rootstock in 2012, that adjustment has decreased to less than $10,000 every month, and we’ve grown over 2000 percent."
