Doing More, Spending Less

“We were able to save 5.5 hours of staff time per day. Before we started working with Mountain Point, we were spending 13.5 hours each day completing Rootstock transactions.”

-Dustin Almon, Operations Manager, Northeast Lantern

The Digital Transformation Journey

Northeast Lantern entrusted Mountain Point to automate repetitive, manual transactions to maximize employees’ time.

Goals: Automate, Automate, Automate

To take full advantage of their Cloud ERP system, Northeast Lantern wanted to focus on automating processes and cut out redundant, duplicative tasks for their employees. They had 3 goals:

  1. Automate processes within Rootstock Cloud ERP on the Salesforce platform.
  2. Allow their users to perform transactions faster and more efficiently to prevent delays within the Shop Floor and Fulfillment departments. 
  3. Automate processes to perform Work Order transactions with custom actions and scheduled batches.

How We Got There

To help Northeast Lantern process transactions more quickly, we created automated processes on the work order object. This included the ability to close work orders, generate receipts, and generate time and quantity bookings on relevant opportunities.

To further aid automation efforts, we built custom tools on the work order object including intuitive buttons and specified schedules for qualifying transactions.

ROI and Key Outcomes: $30,000 in Annual Savings

By automating processes in Rootstock, Northeast Lantern was able to handle work order transactions faster — saving 5.5 hours per day in staff time. To accomplish this, we reduced the number of manual work order transactions by scheduling tasks to be completed on a specific schedule.

Now, on average, Northeast Lantern is saving nearly $30,000 per year in reduced staff time.
