Additional DetailsPricing is always consumption-based with no five-year lock-ins or termination penalties. The Acumatica ERP pricing structure allows adding casual users, suppliers, and customers without paying for additional licenses. The cost is based on the features and resources utilized, not on the number of users who access the system. An Acumatica partner works with users to understand specific requirements, determine the proper resources and modules for the company, and presents a price for the license.

Acumatica
I think it's well-suited for most businesses. It just depends on the business and some specifics. It's hard to generalize or say it's good or not good based on that. But I think overall I think it fits most problems out of the box.

Pros
Acumatica
  • Streamlines our processes and simplifies our systems. Previously, we had to manage two software systems to handle an order and get it out the door with proper shipping documentation. Now, we were able to deploy the shipping document creation inline with the sales order process and streamline our process. This allows us to save about $3K a year just on time savings alone (in creating shipping documentation). This was a nice win for us for this project.
  • Financial Reporting is simplified and flexible for our needs. We are estimating a time savings of around $14.5K per year in time spent creating reports through manual manipulation. The reporting capabilities are much more flexible and allow for greater visibility than our previous ERP.

Cons
Acumatica
  • One of the things I think that's not standard is that when you're reviewing on the app, if you're trying to review as an invoice approver, you can't see the actual GL account numbers that it's going to, which kind of defeats the purpose and being able to approve because you want to make sure it's going to the right place. So that's one of the things. I also think some of the standard reports could use a little sprucing up. The fixed asset reports are very great if you want to know the total depreciation for the month, but not much else. So I have trouble trying to look at beginning adjustment and end on some of the reports that came standard with it.

We aren’t going to switch at this point! It’s a great system and we are looking forward to realizing the full potential of the system once we can find a VAR who has a bench that can support us.

Usability

Most "things" are intuitive which makes the software nice. A few other "things" make no sense and come from a programmers mind, not a users experience.

CMS takes time to learn and use the menu driven green screen. However, once you are familiar it makes for fast navigation.

Support Rating
Acumatica
We used Acumatica Support directly for the first year or so. Overall it's pretty good, but sometimes the support staff wasn't educated on the customizations we had, nor was I as the Customer as I couldn't remember which things were customized and which things were out of the box, so when there was an error, there were some misunderstandings.

Implementation Rating

I'd say the partner selection is critically important. I think the software is very easy to implement. It's very customizable to your business. Finding a partner that will work with you to understand your business and your needs is the critical piece to make sure that the system goes along with it.

Well, we decided to go with Acumatica and I believe it was a really good decision. The VAR was a big part of that as well because of their insights and knowledge, but I just felt Acumatica was the right fit for us in size and it had the capabilities we needed, but it also wasn't overkill.

We have more control over the backend of CMS and the fact it runs on a 5250 emulator it run a lot faster for data entry.

Return on Investment
Acumatica
  • So far? It's had a negative effect on our ROI because it's an extremely expensive system and we're having a hard time getting it to function in all areas of the company. And we're a very small company, so we thought this would go a whole lot faster. The transition and errors we are experiencing have affected our customers with taxes and discounts (and not applying tax-exempt codes when they're entered) and other such basic financial functions. So far, we've had some really negative challenges, but we're optimistic that these will get worked out in the near future and we will realize an ROI (ROVI - return on VERY LARGE investment).
