Acumatica 5.0

I believe that Acumatica is very well suited for a distribution business. The features and functionalities such as multicurrency, stock transfer, and most especially the CRM platform are perfect for this kind of business model.On other the hand, we feel that Acumatica is weak on food service businesses like a restaurant. It lacks the features and functionalities to be able to measure the assembly of food computation based on certain ingredients.

Kepion Planning

The solution works extremely well for companies in complicated operations or with the ambition to forecast their operations on a driver based way or wanting to have the ability to create different scenarios based on external or internal drivers. It is a perfect piece of an existing analytical infrastructure (DWH/BI) lacking a planning solution on top.

Pros

  • Since our sales team is spread all around the country, Acumatica being based in the cloud really helps us set up and access the platform in any location as long as there is an internet connection. This saves us time and money because there is no need to set up hardware, servers, and networks in order to access Acumatica.
  • The customization of dashboards and the creation of specific conditions to show a certain metric is what amazes us as we use Acumatica. To give an example, we wanted to track the new leads that are being generated by our sales team per month. We were able to capture the data by setting the parameters and added this report to management's dashboard.

  • Customizable platform: Enables its users to handle just about any kind of budgeting scenarios tailored to each customer needs, whether based on drivers, allocations integrations with other systems (such as S&OP processes).
  • Easy integration with other systems: As data is stored within an MS SQL database it is very easy to integrate other applications with it for reporting, such as Tableau or PowerBI or from other downline systems such as S&OP.
  • Real-time: Enables the possibility to calculate bottom line results for all applications immediately allowing the possibility to calculate easily what-if scenarios.
  • Not stuck: within a single way of budgeting. as part of the beyond budgeting movement, companies have been creating a more driver-based high-level forecasting which is often a problem with specific budgeting systems that are locked within the P&L statement. Here you can make it as simple or as complicated as needed.

Cons

  • Most of our salespeople rely on their Mobile Phones to access Acumatica, and we feel that the Mobile App of Acumatica needs improvement. The functionalities are limited, therefore we need to access a desktop or laptop to create some entries.
Parker Ong profile photo
  • Silverlight functionality is outdated which makes the front end solution a little bit old compared to latest UI. They will be tackling it in Q2 2018, but it leaves users wanting for more.
  • Reporting functionalities: Are not state of the art, we recommend users creating official reports within Kepion, but focusing on Tableau or PowerBI for reporting purposes as this is not and will never be Kepion strengths compared to the likes of Tableau.
  • Being customizable is great, however, the solution is not an out-of-the-box solution and does require a little integration to work. For smaller companies (under 5M USD) I would still recommend Excel.

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.

Alternatives Considered

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.

We are a Microsoft gold analytics partner. As such, we were looking for a Microsoft friendly solution which would fit into our analytics stack with Tableau on top. Kepion is a lightweight easy to use solution which integrates perfectly with the Microsoft framework. It is much easier to use and intuitive than the heavy Cognos and SAP/BO systems. However, if my existing infrastructure is Cognos, SAP or Oracle I would consider using that technology. For Microsoft SQL companies this is a great choice.

Return on Investment

  • 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.
