Acumatica 5.0

As I have only used it in one business I can't say too much how relevant it would be for other types of business, eg Retail or Manufacturing. It doesn't appear to be specifically set up for ecommerce.

We wholesale products and it works well for that kind of business model.

Host Analytics

Host Analytics Cloud EPM Suite is well suited for financial planning and management reporting. The dynamic cloud based capabilities make it very useful in those instances. A scenario when it may be less appropriate is for financial reporting done by the accounting team as that requires linkage to invoicing and purchasing system.

Pros

  • Generic Inquiries are a very easy way to create custom reports.
  • The automation schedules are useful, we use these for confirming of shipments, creating invoices and emailing them. Reduces workload.
  • Open for integration with other software. We find the ease of connection to MS PowerBI very useful.

  • Cloud based platform enhances collaboration
  • Dynamic models increase efficiency
  • user friendly

Cons

  • The CRM module is very basic.
  • There is no supplier remittance function.
  • The API is basic, our ecommerce integration has had to be built nearly from scratch.
Justin Leflaive profile photo
  • Minor application quirks in the use functionality.
  • Updates are pushed to your application during specified maintenance windows, allowing for immediate use of the new functionality whether you were prepared or understood the changes or not. Any significant changes are clearly communicated ahead of time.

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.

Since it takes a lot of effort to rip out a system and replace it with a new one, we may end up renewing with Host Analytics.

The software from Host Analytics is very easy to use. One of the reasons we chose this software is because it has the look and feel of Excel and we knew our users would come up to speed very quickly. The FP&A staff adapted quickly and we got the product up and running for our forecasting in very short order.

Everyone is very responsive and is willing to jump on a call to help. We set up weekly calls with our CFL representative during the first month of Go-Live. This really helped us solve problems before they got out of hand. When using the Community, I also see representatives on there answering questions

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

NetSuite is much more expensive and is difficult to customise or integrate.
SAP is a more complex and powerful system, but several times more expensive to implement and run.

Host Analytics provides similar functionality without the hardware and software maintenance requirements. As a mid size company, it also provided a more cost effective solution for us.

Return on Investment

  • Time to match customer payments has decreased by approximately 30%.
  • Time to enter sales orders has decreased by approx 10%.
  • It has enabled up to easily access our system remotely, meaning we are able to be more flexible in our work.
Justin Leflaive profile photo
  • We have been able to implement quick, regular forecasts. When building a forecast, time is of the essence. We want our forecasting efforts to take up at most only two weeks of time each quarter. Using Host has allowed us to achieve this goal.
  • Use of Host has shortened our budgeting process and increased the accuracy of the figures as we consolidate our global budget. Errors due to bad or varying assumptions, FX rates, broken spreadsheet links or bad data have been eliminated.
  • We've eliminated the down time that comes with implementing system upgrades to a non-cloud based solution. We have not had to shut down for days while upgrades were tested and approved. Enhancements show up automatically and we can take advantage of them immediately.
