Acumatica 5.0

Fairly easy and intuitive user interface with common features throughout the platform makes it easy to train users new to the system. However, it requires a lot of dev customization with limited features that a power user/administrator can manipulate. Doesn't provide a very customized experience to the individual user. Seems that the best scenario is for companies that will use implementation and customization services to maximize the features of Acumatica.

Host Analytics

Host Analytics has proven to be particularly useful during the budget process - specifically related to the generation of multiple iterations. For me, it has always been very important to provide a trail or bridge from one iteration to the next. People become comfortable with the current iteration and need to fully understand what changed before they can support the current version. Host Analtytics provides the ability to lock the current scenario and create a new one in minutes and then quickly compare the two iterations across dimensions via reporting. It's a great way to check for reasonableness and ensure nothing major was missed.

Pros

Acumatica 5.0

  • Expense reporting: Available both on the desktop and app versions, it has allowed our team members to reduce almost all paper in the expense reporting process, streamline approvals, and reduced time from submission to final payment.
  • CRM: Managing customer information in a single place, accessible to all. Connecting customer accounts to opportunities allow us to quickly see the overall value of an account from past, current and future opportunities.
  • Financial: Drill downs in reporting allows quick and easy access to address questions on individual transactions affecting financial performance. Drill downs are also protected by permissions and roles to ensure people only have access to information relevant to them.

  • Host reporting has already proven to be a time saver. Even in the early stages of use, I was able to build a report for management that compared actual to forecast and then report on various departments.
  • One of the biggest challenges we had was managers taking ownership of their budgets. In the past, they would pass off the data to Finance and then cast blame when the results were not favorable. This year, they are in charge in entering and approving data. VPs now have to approve and all of this is completed in Host. Elimination of extra steps for Finance to rekey and potential errors.
  • I really love the community feature. This allows you the ability to ask other users how they are handling an issue. We have solved a great many problems with this.

Cons

Acumatica 5.0

  • 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.

  • As with all software packages, we would love to have an undo button.
  • One of the best features is also a feature that is hard to adjust to at the beginning. The Row sets and Column sets make building new reports quick but when your Column contain various formulas, you have to add exceptions. Exception formulas within cells are not very forgiving. They do not let you make changes to your report once you create them. This is making us rethink how our old reports are designed.

They responded quickly and are fully supportive to my success and resolving my issues. I believe with the growth they have experienced the first level support isn't as knowledgeable as we would like unless it's for a simple question. They normally end up escalating to another person. We have established a relationship with three of the support personnel who are familiar with our application though and are extremely helpful. There have been a few times when they have resolved the issue but the fix is a month out and this can be inconvenient.

Be sure you understand all the language in the initial contract as to what is included and what is not. The BRDD document although more detailed and also a signed document is not a contract and Host will not necessarily honor that document.Be sure your solutions architect has been with Host awhile and done numerous other implementations. The better qualified they are the better your implementation will go.Do you own homework, and be ready with your own documentation on process, what your proposed dimensions are and fields with the data to populate them.

Alternatives Considered

Acumatica 5.0

I liked the flexibility of Salesforce and the ability to customize look and feel with minimal development involvement. Email integration was smooth and seamless. However, Acumatica's ability to customize certain business processes to meet our particular day to day operational needs and account based fee as opposed to user based fees made it a better option for our organization.

While searching for a solution we looked at OutlookSoft (subsequently bought by SAP), Hyperion and Cognos. Hyperion and Cognos appeared to require a fairly high level of customization and requirement definition before and during implementation. While the systems seemed robust, the time to implementation, resources required, and costs were prohibitive. Outlooksoft and Host Analytics had similar functionality in 2007 when we were making our decision. Ultimately, Host Analytics had a shorter implementation time, and because it was a SAAS product with no large upfront costs, the 5 year NPV was significantly less. The other benefit is that because Host Analytics is continuously improving their product, the tool we use today is significantly better than the tool we purchased originally. That would not have been the case with the other products, which were all on premise solutions.
