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.

Sage 100

For small and medium business in the distribution and light manufacturing space, Sage 100 is probably the best bang for your buck. As a very scaleable system, you can modify the system to meet the needs of a growing business without making gross changes to the core of the system

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.

  • Simple to implement and use. Operation very intuitive so new employees are quickly trained.
  • It is very flexible with many modules and many features allows for easy customization to suit particular needs of any department or company.
  • Context sensitive help, training and support make it easy for a company to operate with out a lot of additional outside tech support.
  • Scalable plenty of room to grow as the business grows without being bloated.
  • Pricing is very reasonable.

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
  • We have the scheduling module we do not use as it difficult to use and requires a lot of manual manipulation --does not handle simultaneous operations.
  • JobOps work tickets do not handle sales UOM conversions and have to be manually edited.
  • Would like to have multiple ship tos under one customer bill to address.
  • Vendors would like to have ability to payment address different from Vendors primary - lockboxes, factors etc.

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.

I would put this out to bid, if I were at the same organization. There have been a lot of improvements and changes in enterprise software and my preference would be to find a good web-based or cloud-based tool. Lower overall cost of ownership and improved efficiency would be my target criteria for a rebid of this.

It is easy, flexible, user friendly and feature laden. Out of the box or easily customized to meet our "wish" list . Sage offers a variety of modules and bolt-ons, user defined fields etc., allowing us to conduct business "our way" without forcing us into a one-size- fits- none mold or having to purchase expensive and cumbersome programming modifications

We had an advantage in implementing the tool in that our director of Ops had been part of the team implementing the ERP for other users so we knew what to expect and were able to avoid a lot of the challenges people sometimes face with implementations. However, the process still took far longer than desired.

Alternatives Considered

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.

For the cost of the software and implementation, we knew we were getting a more robust software that we could grow with. Other software offerings would have had to be piece-meal solutions and created more difficulty integrating.
