Why Finance Pros, Executives, And IT Pros Love Acumatica ERP

Written by Laura Schomaker

‘Love’ is a strong word. It’s used when terms such as ‘like’ and ‘enjoy’ don’t convey the depth of emotion being felt, so when finance pros, executives, and IT pros use it to describe how they feel about Acumatica’s Software as a Service ERP system, then you know they mean it.


Why Acumatica’s cloud software earns users’ love


The software industry is filled with many ERP solutions, but they’re not all created equal. When Acumatica entered the picture in 2008, it quickly became the fastest- growing cloud ERP system on the market.

According to Mike Chtchelkonogov and Ali Jani, two of Acumatica’s co-founders and current members of the leadership team, Acumatica’s platform was purpose-built for the cloud. This cloud-first mentality led to Acumatica’s incredible growth and continued popularity. Mike, Ali, and a core team of developers then developed a next generation billing system for the platform, Acumatica’s current finance management system, Acumatica Financial Management.

Ali, who joined the team in early 2009, recognized that Acumatica as a platform company could future-proof that platform—and its cloud-based finance software—by building further functionality on top of it. They did so by adding Acumatica’s Distribution Management and CRM modules. The last 13 years saw the addition of Manufacturing, Construction, Commerce, and Field Service editions along with an extensive Marketplace that provides seamless third-party integrations.

Says Ali: “It’s in our roots to build something that was meant to last a lifetime; people don’t frequently switch ERP systems, and they’re really buying the system for the future, not just for what they do with it today.”

Acumatica’s comprehensive cloud-based ERP solution, which is accessible from anywhere at any time via browser-based devices, is a flexible, scalable tool for businesses to wield as they face the future and any changes it might bring. It is integrated cloud software that acts as a single source of truth for every department in the organization.

Finance departments have superlative General Ledger, Accounts Receivable, and Accounts Payable capabilities enhanced by companion modules, such as Cash Management, Currency Management, Tax Management, Deferred Revenue Accounting, and more. Accounting transactions from different applications and departments are seamlessly linked and information is synced in real time.

Executives can access the single, shared database infrastructure where all transactions are entered once, and the data is available to all applications that need it with complete drill-down capability and audit trail. Financial reports, both standard and analytical, combined with business intelligence tools, such as Power BI, provide the insights required to see trends and results and to track strategies.

And the IT department, tasked with the ERP implementation, can anticipate a faster and less expensive implementation process. With Acumatica partners available every step of the way, IT professionals find that implementing cloud ERP software eliminates the cost of installing hardware, saves time (no need to maintain or upgrade hardware), and assures data security as well as disaster recovery.

Ultimately, Acumatica is a safe, mobile, and fully integrated cloud ERP solution for every department. What’s not to love?
