When choosing an ERP, the choice often comes down to two heavy hitters: Acumatica and Microsoft Dynamics 365. Both come with a reputation, but which is the better of the two? Real users have a good deal to say about this question and the results are in. In Dynamics 365 vs Acumatica, who comes out ahead? Acumatica does, and it’s across every category, too.

  • Product Direction
  • Likelihood to Recommend
  • Meets Requirements
  • Ease of Use
  • Quality of Support

Eighty-nine percent of those polled also said they would be likely to recommend Acumatica to another user, while only 70 percent of those polled said the same for Dynamics 365.

Dynamics 365 only scored 70, 64 and 69 percent respectively in those categories.

Why Acumatica Wins Out?
