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.

Ross ERP

Ross ERP was designed for and excels in process manufacturing environments. It is best leveraged in companies with strong management support for technology with a strong understanding of the business and manufacturing processes and a willingness to engage in the design and operation of the system. It is less suited for organizations looking for cut and paste solutions that don't' require input from the users and management. It is whatever you make of it.

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.

  • Development: the facet that sold us on Ross was the interaction with the user community and the commitment to development with the users in mind. They are by far the most customer driven company I've worked with in terms of product improvement and development. Companies of all sizes are heard and they're suggestions coalesced into a development plan that delivers value for your maintenance dollars.
  • Lot Traceability: Ross ERP gives us a competitive edge in time for lot trace across multiple sku's and distribution lanes.
  • Process manufacturing management. Ross recipe and process spec management is very robust, allowing us to capture and manage our yields and costs across labor and numerous types of ingredient inputs. Process manufacturing can be more complex then discrete, and Ross was built for process manufacturing.

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.

  • The user interface is under constant improvement, but its a difficult balance between flexibility and ease of use. They have made great strides in recent releases, but have room to grow.
  • Built in reporting and analytics. Again, they are making great improvements over the last several releases, but have room to keep improving.

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 found dynamics too new and too segregated at the Time. SAP was too rigid and expensive, and ProcessPro was a little too small and lacked features. What truly swayed us to Ross over AX was the customer community and the support and interaction that customer community received from all levels of the Ross organization. The level of service and consultation was like nothing you would get from and SAP or MS.

Return on Investment

Acumatica 5.0

  • Better communication and collaboration on customer accounts through the CRM.
  • Improved month-end close time and more up to date financial information.
  • Slow to implement has been frustrating for the team and has been more expensive than anticipated.

  • I don't have hard numbers on ROI. For our business, ERP is a requirement, and Ross has excelled at meeting those requirements. We have nearly doubled the business, with perhaps a 20% increase in headcount managing those orders and invoices. We would not have been able to do that without the efficiencies of process we gained with Ross.
