Acumatica

We work with clients from various fields and have not yet encountered cases where Acumatica is not suitable. It can be customized for any business. Some business-process a harder for customization but basically, everything is solvable.

PowerApps

PowerApps is well suited to environments where an organization wants to allow their employees the flexibility to create solutions to make their lives easier while still maintaining good dlp policies. PowerApps is very secure and you can give access to all organization or limit it just the users that you wish to use that application.

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

PowerApps

  • Because PowerApps is tied to the Office365 environment, it does a very good job at talking to source information in SharePoint. For those considering PowerApps, there is something to be said for the seamless handshakes that Microsoft authors between their own tools.
  • If you are wanting to parse down the fields requested (again, in relation to SharePoint) and get away from messing with content types or default forms behind the curtain in SharePoint, PowerApps is a good buffer to selecting exactly what you want to capture and nothing that you don't (that isn't required).
  • While still in its early deployment, PowerApps does have good flexibility because of the coding opportunities in the tool. Coding can be a barrier of entry, but it balances code and common sense entry pretty well.
  • PowerApps works pretty well on a Mac. Of course, everything Microsoft functions better in Microsoft products (IE, Windows, Edge), but the online authoring tool for PowerApps is just fine for Mac.

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.

PowerApps

  • Customizing interface for phones and tablets.
  • You are limited in layout, either phone or tablet, no desktop support.
  • The "Code Editor" could use some work. Giving you a bigger canvas so to speak.
  • It can be buggy if you make changes to data sources and flows outside of PowerApps. I have had one or two controls "break" because I made changes outside of PowerApps.

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.

There is still complexity in creating PowerApps, but you can't underestimate the power of the PowerApp, so naturally creating one could get complex. But the usage of the app should be straightforward, even if it relies heavily on the UX from the application designer. Overall, very user-friendly, does not require code, and relatively painlessly taps into business-critical information without requiring any data copying.

The community forums are extremely responsive to questions asked, there is a good body of online documentation and many community posts to draw from. Although the platform has changed, which means some of the posts are out of date and the solutions provided aren't relevant. Of relevance, I read over 400 articles plus documentation to get this first app built in SharePoint, move it to SQL and make it work exactly the way it should.

Alternatives Considered

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. Lastly, the CRM solution of Acumatica enables us to track, manage, and monitor our sales team.

PowerApps

Salesforce also offers the capability to build native apps that can be used to capture data related to field service. But the level of efforts to build such applications in Salesforce is high when compared to PowerApps.PowerApps is a better low code platform and offers more features to developers as compared to Salesforce

Return on Investment

Acumatica

  • Acumatica has saved us so much time, previously having multiple disparate systems for handling our many processes. Now we have one fully integrated system saving us time and money.
Nicole Ronchetti | TrustRadius Reviewer

PowerApps

  • I am still developing my application but assuming everything works the way I have laid it out then PowerApps will help us to turn a 10yo marcro-powered Excel workbook with mostly static work-flows into a streamlined and less mistake-prone workflow while utilizing a single database.
  • The application will allow us to access dynamic project information in the field via tablet. Previously this could only be done via phone call or email.
