Acumatica Is Filled with Great Surprises for Manufacturers and More


In case you missed the news, Acumatica just released a new version and, if we do say so ourselves, it’s pretty darn cool. That’s right, the all-new Acumatica 2017 R2 launched on September 13 and its new features became available on October 3.

This powerhouse cloud ERP already had a lot to offer, but it just keeps getting better. Check out the newest updates by reading this brief blog.

When you’re ready for more in-depth information, just contact ISM to ask! We’re always happy to give you the facts.

Acumatica: Now Better Than Ever

Acumatica 2017 R2 improves your employees’ productivity with better product management tools and the ability to personalize dashboards and navigation, and it also increases offerings for your Finance and Sales teams, your Marketing department, your Distribution operations, and—most importantly—your Manufacturing operations.

  • Finance

Updates to the Taxes module make it a snap to close out periods independently for multiple legal entities all using the same ERP software, which saves you time and helps you streamline business processes.

In addition, pay-to-vendor functions have been freed up, empowering you to purchase from one vendor and pay another, which is especially helpful for branches that “purchase” from their corporate offices.

  • Sales

Acumatica and Salesforce CRM now seamlessly sync in real time, meaning that your team can easily update leads, accounts, opportunities, and more in the two systems at the same time with no errors. This helps on-the-go sales teams get more done.

  • Distribution

Pricing improvements help you configure sales and vendor prices so you’ll know you always have the right information at your fingertips. In addition, classifying items is easier than ever with clear, understandable hierarchies.

  • Marketing

The founder of department store Wanamakers (and marketing genius), John Wanamaker, once said, “Half the money I spend on advertising [marketing] is wasted; the trouble is, I don’t know which half.”

Luckily, you’re better off than Wanamaker because the cloud ERP helps you better utilize lists and campaigns while you also track your marketing revenues and statistics so you can spend smart for maximum results.

Acumatica Manufacturing Edition

After two years in co-development with JAAS Systems, Acumatica Manufacturing Edition is finally ready for wide-scale use. Hooray!

This manufacturer-centric version of Acumatica is fully compatible with the cloud, yet provides end-to-end business management for:

  • Make-to-stock
  • Make-to-order
  • Engineer-to-order
  • Project centric
  • Job shop
  • Repetitive
  • Batch processing

If you’ve been looking for a flexible cloud solution that meets your company’s needs, congrats! You may have just found exactly what you’ve been looking for.

This Is Pretty Cool: Hands-Free ERP

And, one last thing, Acumatica also has a new, cool party trick. It responds to the sound of your voice.

Yup, earlier this year at Acumatica Summit 2017, CEO Jon Roskill demonstrated the software’s ability to integrate with Amazon’s smart home device, Alexa, to look up inventory data with a spoken question.

If you’re not sure why this is so cool, you clearly haven’t realized how much time your company is wasting by having to use both hands to input or extract system data. That means you’ll be surprised how much time you free up when you shave seconds off each lookup.

Want Acumatica? Migration Is Now Easier Than Ever

If the all-new features in this powerhouse cloud ERP have got you interested—but you’re worried about the time and effort it will take to migrate your data—don’t worry!

Because Acumatica is a cloud ERP, migrating your data is faster with the new migration tool that connects with Sage 100. Plus, in Acumatica 2017 R2, which launched in September, even historical Accounts Payable and Accounts Receivable information is a breeze to sync.
