Acumatica

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.

Infor

Since it also allows us to expand the functionality without the Modifications, the necessity to exchange the code is mostly not needed. Despite this, sometimes we are not provided with alternatives. So it is highly appreciated that this option still [exists] though. The M3 Products are mostly very intuitive once you start using them more frequently.

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

Infor

  • Very stable product. Some of its weaknesses are also its strengths. The lack of web services seems to actually increase stability.
  • No software vendor in this space is perfect. Lawson does perform as advertised.
  • Again, a weakness of this (limited functionality) is a hidden strength as well. In software there is a complexity/feature tradeoff. Where Lawson lacks in features, it does give you a more simple setup for your organization.

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.

Infor

  • Not intuitive at all, difficult to learn.
  • System is archaic, seems to be largely unchanged since the early 2000's.
  • Reports are all in PDF form, which for financial reporting purposes is tedious to turn back into Excel sheets.

      It meets most of the reporting requirements and ability to use the system easily. We like the simple interfaces for the users and ability to perform mass journal entry uploads. The Master data is easy to consume by users, including Chart of Accounts structure, Accounting Units, Cost Centers. The Activity based reporting feature is useful.

      The overall support of Inform M3 is simply the best! There isn't a single flaw that I can detect or think of about this software! I can't possibly express the greatness of the availability and all of the possibilities achieved. The ease of use and a lot of functionalities such as flexibility [allows in] configuration to add new functionalities fast.

      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.
