Kirkland, WA, December 30, 2013 — Acumatica, a leader in cloud-based enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions for small and medium-sized companies, announced today the publication of its latest case study, featuring Hi Spec Doorsets, a company that realized the benefits of 24/7 ERP access after switching to Acumatica.
Hi Spec Doorsets, based in the United Kingdom, manufactures tailored doorsets for the construction industry. Since 2010, they’ve provided customized solutions for hotels, offices, and residential developments, and for the health and education sectors. Hi Spec was searching for a new ERP solution, as their old system required the sales staff to update leads, contacts, and sales orders from the office, because their remote login software was faulty.
“Two things instantly attracted me to the Acumatica model,” said Tim Patton, Hi Spec’s ICT Director. “One was the reduced costs in maintenance and the other was no user licensing.”
Another factor that influenced Hi Spec to choose Acumatica for its ERP needs was the platform’s intuitiveness. “If a system is easy to use, then it will get used and that, ultimately, is what we want as a business,” said Patton.
“Our products are user-friendly,” said Jean Gea, Acumatica’s Product Marketing Manager. “We don’t charge per user; we want every employee to be able to utilize the system as easily as possible.”
Since the switch to Acumatica’s browser-based system, Hi Spec’s problems with remote login have disappeared.
“I am still getting used to drinking a coffee in Starbucks while looking at our ERP, but that is the flexibility and usability that all companies should have now,” said Patton.
