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.

I suggest becoming fully familiar with the program before first time use as it can become costly and a charge off to a client would not be practical.

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.

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.

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 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.

We contacted PlanGuru for a low-cost module initially for use on a particular client. It has been used several times since by my department for projections. It's fairly adaptable with our QuickBooks business clients.
