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.
