REDWOOD CITY, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Kenandy, Inc., a cloud enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution built natively on the Salesforce platform, is gaining traction across the manufacturing sector with new customer acquisitions and industry recognition. This week, Kenandy will present at the Salesforce World Tour in Chicago and one of its customers, Merrow Sewing Machine Company, has been selected to present its phenomenal growth story at the Salesforce Manufacturing Summit on June 14.
Merrow Sewing Machine Company, a 180-year old company that got its start selling gunpowder and knitting supplies in 1838, recently removed its sluggish legacy ERP system and implemented Kenandy Cloud ERP on Salesforce. Since implementation of the Kenandy platform three years ago, Merrow has started three new business lines and doubled its top line revenue. Merrow was able to execute the growth with 25 percent of revenue coming from new business lines, with close to the same employee count.
Kenandy is seeing similar growth stories across its customer base as new customers recognize the strategic benefits of Kenandy Cloud ERP, including real-time access to both front and back office data across the organization. With customer analytics and operational data at employees’ fingertips, companies gain the ability to change business processes at any given point and connect closely with their partners, suppliers and distributors via digital channels and devices.
“Companies no longer have to map their business processes to inflexible and siloed legacy ERP systems,” says Kenandy CEO Chuck Berger. “The Kenandy Cloud ERP solution empowers our customers to make changes to their business processes on the fly and fundamentally change the pace of their business across the entire organization.”
In the past 18 months, Kenandy’s customer count has increased by 5X and recurring revenue has grown by 10X. Since January of this year, Kenandy has been recognized by industry research firms and media outlets for its technology leadership and continued market expansion, including the following highlights noted below:
- In January, Kenandy was ranked the Number 1 Cloud ERP for Manufacturing Product Leadership by global research firm Frost and Sullivan.
- Kenandy was included in the January 2017 Forrester Research Vendor Landscape SaaS ERP Applications report, which included Kenandy as one of the Cloud “ERP pure-plays that are gaining market share.”
- PC Magazine named Kenandy as one of the ERP start-ups changing the game in the industry in February of this year.
- Kenandy was recently profiled in Diginomica, Industry Week, and Solutions Review for its leadership in the cloud ERP market.
As market growth for Kenandy broadens, Kenandy will continue to present at numerous industry events. This week, Jeff Underdahl, Vice President of Business Development at Kenandy, will be presenting “Salesforce CPQ & Kenandy ERP: The Front Office Meets Back Office” at the Salesforce World Tour on June 15.
Charlie Merrow, CEO of Merrow Sewing Machine Company, will be presenting at the Salesforce Manufacturing Summit in Chicago on June 14.
