For companies looking to improve the efficiency of business operations by implementing a cloud ERP solution, here are the top 8 reasons to consider Acumatica:
1. Mobile App
Acumatica is designed from the ground up to be usable on all types of portable devices including laptops, smartphones and tablets. As long as the device has an internet connection, company employees working remotely can access data and conduct transactions within Acumatica Cloud ERP.
2. Personalized Dashboards
Other ERP software solutions present users with a cluttered and overly complex interface. This makes the software difficult and frustrating to use.
Unlike other cloud ERP software solutions, Acumatica allows customization of its interface. Each user can personalize their specific interface so that they see and can monitor only the information useful to them, such as Key Performance Indicators (KPIs).
3. Business Intelligence/Business Events
The more processes that a company can automate, the faster business operations can take place. Acumatica enables automation of reminders and communications.
These reminders and communications are triggered by conditions and thresholds that users configure ahead of time. By automating reminders and communications, Acumatica makes it possible for users to make more rapid, intelligent strategic business decisions.
4. Manage Multiple Verticals
With Acumatica, company data is centralized into a single computerized database. This cloud ERP database is updated in real time, ensuring that all company departments are working with the same accurate data.
Acumatica benefits all company departments by managing the various verticals of business operations, including:
- Customer Relationship Management (CRM)
5. Cloud ERP offers Open Platform
Acumatica is an open platform, meaning it integrates easily with business software suites that companies are already using. For example, companies in the e-commerce industry can take advantage of the powerful integrations Acumatica is capable of with popular shopping cart platforms.
6. Supports Global Business
Companies with an international presence can especially benefit from implementing and using Acumatica. It’s one of the few cloud ERP solutions capable of handling multi-currency accounting, helping to streamline company business transactions taking place throughout the world.
7. Unique Feature-based Pricing Model
One major complaint about other cloud ERP software solutions is the user-based pricing model. When ERP software is licensed on a per-user basis, in order to save on licensing costs, companies tend to limit the number of users who have access to the software. This limits the benefits that can be realized from using an ERP, especially a cloud-based solution.
Uniquely, Acumatica is licensed based on the features and amount of data used, rather than on the number of users of the software. This pricing model encourages companies to use the software across the entire organization, maximizing the benefits that companies can realize from using Acumatica.
Companies looking to implement a traditional on-premises ERP software solution are required to make a substantial upfront investment in IT infrastructure. This IT infrastructure includes enterprise-grade servers and networking equipment. Once that investment in building out IT infrastructure is made, there is still the ongoing cost of maintaining that equipment.
Being a natively built, cloud-based ERP, Acumatica does not require companies to purchase or maintain any IT equipment. The Acumatica software, and the hardware needed to run the software, is maintained by highly trained and experienced Acumatica engineers.
As a result, companies can be confident that their data is always safe, secure and accessible.
