Acumatica is great for mid to large size organizations that need a fully integrated solution and many modules. The software is very robust and they are always adding more features and functionality to the product. So as your business grows the product does too. It's not like other ERP solutions that I've worked with that rarely improve.

For parts sales, M2M is not a good program. There are too many glitches that happen between the sales order process and the shipping process. At the same time, we have to work with outside vendors to make certain functions work in the program. Or it has to work outside the program and communicate back to the main software. Way too clunky.

Pros

Acumatica

  • Expense reporting - enabled by a smartphone, you can image receipts and create claims quickly
  • Chart of accounts - being able to drill down in an expense category to see the individual claims that make up the total is helpful
  • Reporting - I appreciate the ability to pull a standard report and export to Excel quickly and easily

  • Made2Manage has been consistent since I began supporting it in terms of data input and the user interface.

Cons

Acumatica

  • Email integration: Horribly clunky, requires users to share email password with Acumatica to allow use of outbound emails. Should be using a more secure method like access tokens.
  • Expense approval process: Once expense claims are approved, approvers (depending on role) can no longer see the approved/denied claims. Denial of claims requires a manual email/call to submitter instructing them to correct and resubmit the claim.
  • CRM: Allow for tracking of cases by the opportunity in addition to business accounts. This would allow for more accurate tracking of issues related to specific opportunities.

  • The management interface for users is not straightforward.
  • Managing permissions for users is difficult outside of copying permissions.
  • It still has lots of issues that can cause significant downtime.

      It is very customisable and good value for money. It is also scalable for the future. The CRM and ecommerce integtration are the main downsides.

      I am not in the decision making group any more for this product. When I was, I along with many other managers, voted to go with a competitive product software vs re-subscribing to Aptean for this product. We were convinced by certain parties at our work that the new product was head and shoulders above the old product. While they freshened up a few things and there was an increase in some functionality areas, it was still tired.

      This software is not user-friendly nor easy to train on. I train people for various departments and had argued for the company to go with another company. I was not alone. When the time came for us to do an upgrade (necessitated by the advent of Windows 10 compatibility issues), a number of managers at our organization wanted to seek out other vendors due to the difficulty in training people to use the software. Then have to deal with so many of the user issues and lack of functionality created by the need for using an outside software programmer to bring in software that interpreted what M2M was doing and then translate it back into the program so that we had an end-user solution. This software should be robust enough to do it all. It is not. I hate to be so negative about it but anyone that has spent as many years using this software as I have should find something good to say about the platform and I struggle to do that. I had asked for the warranty section that would tie into the return authorization process. I was told it would happen. It didn't. Bad karma.

      I go back to the warranty segment of the program to help track expenses that were generated by returns and zero-dollar sales orders to resolve customer issues. I feel like I was lied to by the company. They said they would have it in there on the new release. They told the purchasing manager it would be on the new release. The purchasing manager assured me it would be on there. They even showed 'warranty loading' on the screen when you signed in. However, there was no additional component of the return material authorization process for warranty adaptation. I even challenged our upload team about it and they had no answer. It does a few functions well but in my personal experience, buy something else.

      The actual implementation was no worse or better than other software updates. There were days of pain and additional training helped overcome a lot of the learning curve associated with that. However, that training came from our own internal staff vs anyone from Aptean.

      Alternatives Considered

      Acumatica

      Acumatica trumps over QuickBooks Enterprise Solutions in many ways. First, Acumatica being in the cloud has given us agility in accessing the platform anywhere and anytime. Second, the dashboard creation feature of Acumatica has given us the ability to customize each dashboard of each of our employees. Lastly, the CRM solution of Acumatica enables us to track, manage, and monitor our sales team.

      Return on Investment

      Acumatica

      • Acumatica provides us with real-time reports on our entire business process by connecting our sales, delivery of services/product, and up to collection. Given this, we couldn't quantify the value of seeing a clearer picture of our business, thus we are able to make timely and accurate decisions.

      • I came on board after M2M was implemented so I'm not sure how it has changed from previous software. However, I do know it has the ability to grow with the company.
