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.

Being able to use the Distribution Manager function is very helpful. This allows us to pull together financial statements for multiple companies, while simultaneously removing the Spreadsheet Server function.

Pros

  • 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.

  • The ability to pull data directly from ERP systems into a spreadsheet, allowing the data to be easily viewed and managed.
  • The ability to use the distribution manager in order to present data without Spreadsheet Server functions.

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.

  • I would like to see the ability to pull data across different fiscal years using one formula.

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

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.

Spreadsheet Server is easier to get started and more user friendly. It seems to be better for our size business.

Return on Investment

  • 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.

  • The use of spreadsheet server allows the finance/accounting staff to work much more efficiently.
