New Acumatica 6 features include Universal Microsoft Outlook Add-In, Dashboard Enhancements and Key Performance Indicator Widgets

BOSTON, Mass. – September 8, 2016 — Acumatica, the leading global provider of flexible, easily-deployed business management software for small to mid-sized businesses, today announced the highly-anticipated release of Acumatica 6. Featuring useful new product and technology enhancements, Acumatica debuted this latest release of its cloud-based Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) product at a well-attended launch event in Boston, Mass., with customers, partners, and industry analysts in attendance.

“At Acumatica, we’re committed to midmarket customers and partners, whose rapid growth requires flexible, scalable, cost-effective tools,” said Jon Roskill, CEO of Acumatica. “Acumatica 6’s substantial technical improvements further our pragmatic performance, mobility, and integration capabilities.”

“Acumatica’s unique mobile solution already enables Danforth Pewter’s personnel to view complete information anywhere, anytime, helping us to run the business from any location,“ said Bram Kleppner, CEO, Danforth Pewter. “I can’t wait to use the newest enhancements in Acumatica 6.”

A few of the many new features in Acumatica 6 are:

Integrated CRM - Acumatica Add-in for Microsoft Outlook:

With this add-in, customers can view details on lead and contact records that already exist in Acumatica ERP, create new leads and contacts inside Microsoft Outlook, and customize the appearance of the Acumatica ribbon button in accordance with a company's branding.

Stunning Dashboards with large selection of visualizations, pivot tables, and Microsoft Power BI:

The management and configuration of dashboards have been significantly enhanced in Acumatica ERP 6, making it far more convenient to add new dashboards, manage existing dashboards, and configure widgets on dashboards, even from mobile devices. With this release, Acumatica is the first ERP provider to support embedded Microsoft Power BI components and is now the first to make Microsoft Outlook Add-in commercially available, just as it was the first to provide Microsoft Office 365 integration.

New Contract-based Rest API:

Acumatica 6 also introduces a new, contract-based representational state transfer (REST) application programming interface (API), which uses the same endpoints and contracts as the contract-based Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP) API introduced in Acumatica ERP 5.3. The REST API makes it very easy to create and test requests directly from a web browser without the custom libraries or special wrappers required for the SOAP API.

Acumatica ERP delivers adaptable cloud and mobile technology with a unique, all-inclusive user licensing model, enabling customers to obtain a complete, real-time view of their business anytime, anywhere. Through its worldwide network of partners, Acumatica provides a full suite of integrated business management applications, including Financials, Distribution, Manufacturing, Project Accounting and Customer Relationship Management (CRM).

The company, founded in 2008, continues to improve on the product suite that has made it the industry’s fastest-growing Cloud ERP provider. Acumatica 6 is available today, and the launch event will begin the process of a ‘continuous release’ cycle for updates, which will be delivered as they are completed directly to users.

Content from the launch event will be available at Acumatica.com on Sept 12, 9am PST.

Attendees included a diverse array of technology partners who comprise the ever-growing Acumatica ecosystem and a large group of midmarket customers that rely on Acumatica to manage their businesses. Among the many announcements made during CEO Jon Roskill’s opening keynote, his confirmation that Acumatica had once again achieved triple-digit revenue growth during 2015, was perhaps the most enthusiastically received.

“The cloud-based accounting and ERP market continues to skyrocket as growth companies require a consolidated view of business information in real time,” said Roskill. “Acumatica is founded on a vision to provide small-to-medium sized businesses with a business management solution that is easy to use and accessible from anywhere. We are committed to helping accelerate business growth.”

More Acumatica highlights from 2015 include:

  • Acumatica was once again the fastest-growing Cloud ERP solution, growing at 134 percent year-over-year.
  • The company announced its 2,000th-customer milestone, doubling the size of its portfolio in less than 18 months.
  • Acumatica added 24 new Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) to the ecosystem, an increase attributed to the open and flexible architecture of the platform as well as a growing customer base.
  • An additional 60 Value Added Reseller (VAR) partners joined the Acumatica community, ready to help customers worldwide meet the demand for Acumatica services.

Acumatica’s Expanding Community

“The growing partner ecosystem is a special ingredient of value for Acumatica customers – and growth for the Acumatica platform. Partners bring their deep industry and business expertise to the table, and leverage Acumatica’s platform to accelerate time to value for customers,” said Rebecca Wettemann, vice president of Nucleus Research.

New U.S. Headquarters Location

To accommodate its growth, Acumatica will relocate its headquarters from Kirkland, Wash. to Bellevue, Wash. this week. The new headquarters is located at 11235 Southeast 6th Street, Suite 140, in Lincoln Plaza and is approximately 35 percent larger than Acumatica’s previous location.

“We’re excited about the opportunity the new office provides. Not only will we have more space to grow our team, but we will be closer to both Microsoft and Amazon Web Services, two of our most strategic partners, which increases the potential for additional collaboration,” said Nigel LeGresley, Chief Operating Officer at Acumatica. “Being in close proximity to these industry leaders is a strategic business decision that we will look to expand upon in the coming year.”

Acumatica Labs Opens in Montreal, Canada

The creation of Acumatica Labs in Montreal was also announced today. Acumatica Labs will perform rigorous testing and integration procedures together with leading OEM’s and ISVs, leading to faster and smoother ERP implementations on-site with customers.

“The expansion of Acumatica Labs in Montreal enhances our development capabilities in North America and will further enhance our partnership with ACCEO Solutions, one of our Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM),” said LeGresley. “Montreal is a central hub of technical talent, and Acumatica Labs will drive our ISV integration and certification efforts.”
