  • Browser compatibility: Your applications are delivered via a presentation layer that includes support for Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Safari, and Chrome. This allows you to concentrate on business logic and not worry about browser compatibility.
  • Server side business logic: With Acumatica Studio, Javascript is only used for handling initial data format validation, GUI related logic, and synchronizing browser content with the application server. All business logic is executed on the application server. Data validation is duplicated on the server to prevent client-side data manipulation.
  • Built-in performance: Acumatica Studio has a complex presentation engine that minimizes network traffic by caching static data classes and common elements. This allows your applications to run efficiently over unreliable Internet connections.
  • Evolve and customize: Applications developed in Acumatica include built-in customization support. Customizations are stored separately from core application code as meta data. This preserves customizations during upgrades to the core application.
