What Does Salesforce AppExchange Offer?

AppExchange is an extensive resource for Salesforce users, with thousands of available solutions built upon the Salesforce Lightening platform, all designed to work hand-in-hand with the CRM. Among these solutions are ERP offerings for companies of various sizes and requirements.

FinancialForce

As one of the larger ERPs offered on the Force.com platform, FinancialForce is designed to extend a company's investment in the Salesforce CRM across the company to include order management, fulfillment, accounting, etc. Backed by industry leaders such as Salesforce Ventures, Technology Crossover Ventures, Advent International, and Unit4, the cloud offering continues to expand in the ERP space. 

Rootstock

Rootstock was launched in 2008 soon after Financial Force (FF). It is smaller in size than FF, with roughly 160 customers and 125 employees, but it's impact on users is anything but small. The solution works cohesively with the Salesforce CRM to exclusively manage and grow manufacturers, distributors and supply chain-dependent companies.

 
 
 
 
 
 

Accounting Seed

Also founded in 2008, Accounting Seed works harmoniously with the Salesforce CRM, providing visibility, control, and automation to its customers. Accounting Seed is a smaller-scale offering, providing strong accounting automation and real-time reporting to small to mid-sized businesses.

 

Other PaaS Solutions

Force.com has a vast array of offerings, virtually guaranteeing that its customers will be able to find something for each of their needs. If not, the Salesforce Lightening platform can be utilized by developers to create new, specialized solutions.

Force.com Partnerships

Financial Force

FinancialForce utilizes a strong partnership network, with the primary focus centering on implementation and reselling. Value Added Resellers provide sales, consulting, and implementation services to FinancialForce customers. In addition, they provide a services provider program aimed at delivering specialized consulting and implementation support. FinancialForce also offers its ReadyApp program, which can help developers customize and design the solution to fit the specific needs of the customer.

Rootstock

Rootstock has partners all over the world, consisting primarily of implementation partners and complimentary software partners. This worldwide network of partners has the expertise needed to walk customers through their Rootstock implementation, develop customized modules for specific needs, and provide baseline support.

 

 

Accounting Seed

Salesforce AppExchange has offerings for no-code automation, implementation partners, and training tools for customers; however, the partnership ecosystem for Accounting Seed is not as robust as other ERPs due to the ERP being a Tier 4 solution. The Salesforce AppExchange also allows users to customize their dashboards and workflows. For customers implementing AccountingSeed, resources are available within its established Knowledge Base to enable customers to implement the software themselves.

Other PaaS Solutions

Salesforce AppExchange has well-developed resources for its many software offerings. Consultants with deep industry knowledge and specialized developers with proven Salesforce expertise are available within the network to provide support beyond the individual offerings of each system built upon the platform.
