Overall Satisfaction with Acumatica 5.0

We are currently starting with one business unit and eventually implement it across the entire organization. One business problem we want to fix is the ability to see the actual sales activity of our sales people and connect their sales task to ordering, warehousing, and accounting. As we connect all these things we are able to see in real time what is happening by using dashboards and generating specific reports.
The creation of customized dashboards is one of our favorite features of Acumatica. We created a specific dashboard suited for each employee based on their specific function and roles.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Acumatica provides us with real-time reports on our entire business process by connecting our sales, delivery of services/product, and up to collection. Given this, we couldn't quantify the value of seeing a clearer picture of our business, thus we are able to make timely and accurate decisions.
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.
I believe that Acumatica is very well suited for a distribution business. The features and functionalities such as multicurrency, stock transfer, and most especially the CRM platform are perfect for this kind of business model.
On other the hand, we feel that Acumatica is weak on food service businesses like a restaurant. It lacks the features and functionalities to be able to measure the assembly of food computation based on certain ingredients.
