Wilshire Coin Mints Rootstock Cloud ERP for Inventory Control
Customized Pricing Tool Consistently Updates Prices of Precious Metals
SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Rootstock Software®, the leader in cloud manufacturing and supply chain applications, today announced that it is helping Wilshire Coin (Santa Monica, Calif.) modernize its inventory control and assure that customers are being quoted properly on their precious metal orders.
“As a result, Rootstock is building us a pricing tool that will constantly update prices, assuring our customers that the quote they get is at present market pricing.”
“There are two sides to our business,” explains Zach Scott, Wilshire Coin operations manager. “Most people are familiar with our consumer business in which investors and collectors buy and sell coins. However, we also have a wholesale business in which we supply inventory and pick-pack-ship services to coin dealers and financial advisors.”
According to Scott, the company was advised to look into salesforce.com. The management team liked the concept of multi-person access to the data from anywhere in the world. As a result, Wilshire Coin became a salesforce.com user.
“We then hired a consultant to help us pick the right ERP to help us with our other needs,” Scott adds. “They brought us three contenders and Rootstock not only had all the things we wanted but they were the most willing to customize the software to our unique needs. They showed a real willingness to help us provide the best possible service to our wholesale customers along with having the most robust suite.”
Wilshire Coin was also sold on the Rootstock inventory management module. It supports a number of business processes relating to the maintenance of item inventories, inventory valuation and planning and setting of item policies such as lead time and planning.
“We also told Rootstock that being in the precious metals business, prices fluctuated constantly and that it was imperative to our customers that the quotes they got were literally right on the money,” Scott continued. “As a result, Rootstock is building us a pricing tool that will constantly update prices, assuring our customers that the quote they get is at present market pricing.”
