Our mobile devices are increasingly important in everything we do in the modern digital world. As unique cloud-based solutions take the business world by storm, professionals seek flexible, accessible enterprise resource planning (ERP) mobile solutions to access crucial data from any device with an internet connection. 

Acumatica Cloud ERP software provides real-time access to essential information through an easy-to-use app for all your ERP needs. From time reporting to task management, mobile paystubs, and more, read more to discover how Acumatica Cloud ERP enables businesses on the go to operate efficiently. 

 The Mobile Workforce and Remote Operations

 Remote work is growing constantly, with more and more businesses adopting a remote or hybrid work model. With 16% of U.S. companies operating fully remote and 27% of employees working remotely, there’s no denying the need for an application to streamline remote business processes. 

SMBs operating fully or partly remote can use mobile ERP applications to manage a distributed workforce. Applications like Acumatica Cloud ERP provide access to important information from any location with an internet connection. 

 Acumatica’s Mobile App Features

 Acumatica Cloud ERP provides various solutions for businesses to handle and simplify multiple processes, such as finances, CRM, accounting, reporting, e-commerce, field services, manufacturing, and distribution.

 Enhancing Productivity with Mobile ERP

ERP for mobile devices is a critical component of remote worker productivity. A mobile ERP system is perfect for employees looking to work efficiently on the go while still having access to business data and communication channels. 

This is a valuable solution for a variety of roles, such as field service technicians. These workers need quick, remote access to order history, customer details, and other information when meeting with customers, all of which a mobile ERP can deliver. 

Real-Time Data Synchronization 

ERP solutions integrate many business processes, promote collaboration, and streamline your workflows for more efficient operations. Cloud-based, remote access to your company’s operating systems is invaluable and gives you a competitive edge. 

One of the most notable benefits of Acumatica’s mobile apps is that these solutions allow real-time data synchronization. Any changes made in your mobile app are instantly and automatically synced in Acumatica to store data from your company’s departments. 

 Security and Compliance in Mobile ERP  

 Solutions like Acumatica implement many security measures to protect your company’s sensitive data on a mobile device. Acumatica Cloud ERP ensures compliance with data protection regulations through the following features and protocols: 

  • Acumatica allows you to choose who can access your system and gives you complete control over where your data is stored and processed. 
  • All business logic is processed on Acumatica’s server, meaning there’s less chance for malicious parties to uncover how your company’s system works. 
  • Acumatica implements effective user authentication features to limit logins from specific IP addresses, create robust password requirements, or use a one-time password system. 
  • All Acumatica data stays on your server, not on the user’s device. 
  • Acumatica has encrypted communications to transfer information securely. 
  • To protect your company in case of lost or stolen information, Acumatica encrypts certain fields using advanced database encryption. 
  • All user menus display only on applications and pages allowed for each user. 
  • No data item is displayed on forms or reports unless allowed for specific users. 
  • Acumatica provides role-based user security to reduce your security settings and chances for error and allows you to create unlimited roles. 
  • Transmissions between your browser and the Acumatica application server are always re-validated from an encrypted key. 

Case Studies: Business Mobility with Acumatica

Embracing Acumatica’s mobile ERP can transform your business with on-the-go solutions. Security Solutions NW perfectly exemplifies the power of Acumatica’s mobile cloud ERP. The company implemented Acumatica’s mobile ERP to simplify finances and other business processes. 

Through Acumatica’s solution, Security Solutions NW could access a single, connected, cloud-based ERP with effective CRM capabilities, financial controls, and advanced inventory and project management. Using Acumatica’s solutions, SSNW enhanced its financial controls, improved customer service, streamlined service contracts, and fixed inventory issues. 

Erickson International also significantly benefited from Acumatica’s remote mobile solutions. When the company previously used Sage 100 as their financial software, they found this system difficult to implement and ineffective for supporting multiple entities. Using Acumatica, Erickson International found an accessible, mobile, unified solution. Acumatica has unified different company locations, streamlined work processes, and provided real-time insights into Erickson International’s inventory.
