Overall Satisfaction with Acumatica 5.0

We use Acumatica across the whole organisation, we have 2 divisions so we use the inter-branch module in order to report on divisions separately. It enables complete integration between Purchasing, Sales orders, Stock Control and Finance - prior to using Acumatica we had to use 2 separate systems for Finance and Stock Control. It is also very scalable and customisable.
  • Generic Inquiries are a very easy way to create custom reports.
  • The automation schedules are useful, we use these for confirming of shipments, creating invoices and emailing them. Reduces workload.
  • Open for integration with other software. We find the ease of connection to MS PowerBI very useful.
  • The CRM module is very basic.
  • There is no supplier remittance function.
  • The API is basic, our ecommerce integration has had to be built nearly from scratch.
  • Time to match customer payments has decreased by approximately 30%.
  • Time to enter sales orders has decreased by approx 10%.
  • It has enabled up to easily access our system remotely, meaning we are able to be more flexible in our work.
NetSuite is much more expensive and is difficult to customise or integrate.
SAP is a more complex and powerful system, but several times more expensive to implement and run.
As I have only used it in one business I can't say too much how relevant it would be for other types of business, eg Retail or Manufacturing. It doesn't appear to be specifically set up for ecommerce.

We wholesale products and it works well for that kind of business model.

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.
