Acumatica Cloud ERP Acumatica has been in the news lately by winning awards for the cloud ERP product’s “innovation, vision and overall industry impact.” With an “Excellent” rating from PC Magazine, a 2016 CODiE award for “Best Supply Chain Management Solution,” and a 2016 IDC Innovator award, Acumatica is gaining recognition as one of the best ERP systems available to small and mid-sized businesses.

All of these awards mean that Acumatica Cloud ERP is a viable alternative to legacy ERP systems. The software has the feature-rich functionality you need to support every area of your business while providing the agility and flexibility. Take a look at four reasons Acumatica has won awards and can make an impact on your business:

  1. Acumatica Cloud ERP has the Functionality You Need

Can cloud-based ERP really do what your business needs? Yes, in fact, not only can you gain the efficiency and ease of cloud-based ERP, but you can also have the full-featured functionality of proven ERP software. Acumatica Cloud ERP has software modules for manufacturing, distribution, finance and more. If you are familiar with legacy ERP systems that required extensive customization, take a new look at what today’s ERP can do. You might be surprised at the standard functionality that you can gain without customization and with the tremendous benefits of a cloud-based ERP. In addition to this functionality, cloud-based ERP can simplify the implementation process, increase business agility and reduce the cost of ownership.

  1. Acumatica Cloud ERP is easier to implement.

Implementing cloud-based ERP is easier than many on-premises ERP solutions because the software is modular and provides greater accessibility. In addition, when companies choose to outsource the hosting of their ERP, they do not need to ramp up to accommodate, train and support new hardware and software platforms.

  1. Acumatica Cloud ERP increases business agility and transparency

When your business is growing whether through increased sales, geographic expansion or acquisition, Acumatica Cloud ERP can help your business be agile and flexible. By leveraging cloud ERP capabilities such as improved access and transparency, organizations transform processes to ease growing pains. Cloud ERP can ease the migration of shared processes and data, help move toward integrated systems and provide multi-location access.

An easy-to-use, mobile user interface is expected today which means that Internet and mobile offerings need to be provided. Acumatica Cloud ERP software allows for much easier delivery of corporate data and information on mobile platforms allowing employees, supplier and customers access to critical data on any device and from anywhere.

  1. Acumatica reduces the cost of ERP ownership

When ERP first became available, only mega companies could afford to implement ERP. The upfront software, hardware and implementation costs were a major barrier to small businesses. That has changed over time with ERP systems such as Sage 100 that are made for small to mid-sized businesses. With cloud ERP, the barriers in terms of time and cost got even lower. Acumatica provides an innovative pricing model that provides great value and flexibility that meets the needs of small to mid-sized businesses. With a hosted cloud system, the cost of ownership is reduced as you pay by the user enabling you to scale up or down as your needs change. You also gain ERP functionality improvements much sooner as the vendor upgrades the system for you. Your IT investment can be redirected as you don’t need to manage servers, patch and upgrade software or hardware.
