Australian MSP CSG announced Tuesday that the company is in the midst of deploying Roostock’s Salesforce-based ERP platform

Australian managed services provider CSG announced Tuesday that the company is in the midst of deploying Roostock’s Salesforce-based ERP platform as it moves to transform its internal IT estate.

CSG said the cloud-based platform will improve monitoring and empower mobile field technicians in ways its current systems don’t. When fully implemented, the company said “hundreds” of the company’s 600-plus employees will be using the platform.

As a relatively new entrant (it was founded in 2008) in the ERP space, Roostock faces a tough battle against enterprise incumbents like SAP and increasingly successful cloud-native ERP-focused firms like NetSuite.

But Roostock’s ERP platform is based entirely on the Salesforce1 platform, which is compelling for companies already using Salesforce for CRM – that is to say, a lot of companies including CSG; other platforms – like those mentioned above – require integration connectors, and don’t necessarily offer the same degree of access to the growing Salesforce-based app ecosystem.

“This is yet another example of cloud ERP moving up market and supporting the ERP initiatives of larger corporations,” said Patrick Garrehy, chief executive officer and founder of Roostock.

“Being 100 per cent native on Salesforce provides great opportunities to companies such as CSG to embrace a fully functional cloud ERP that embodies the power and depth of larger on-premise ERPs with the flexibilities that only the cloud can provide,” he added.
