Acumatica Customer Youngevity Selected as Finalist in Constellation SuperNova Awards

September

11

Kirkland, Washington, September 9, 2014 – Constellation Research, Inc. the research and advisory firm helping clients dominate digital disruption announced Rick Taylor, VP of IT and Supply Chain at Youngevity, as a finalist in the fourth annual SuperNova Awards. The Constellation SuperNova Awards are the first and only awards to celebrate the leaders and teams who have overcome the hurdles of technology adoption to successfully introduce emerging and disruptive technologies to their organizations.

Youngevity needed to automate its accounting and distribution processes. With six warehouses, 400 products, and thousands of orders a day, the company wasn’t getting an accurate picture of the business and its software couldn’t keep up with 100,000 customers and 10,000 SKUs.

“Youngevity started looking to upgrade and found Acumatica,” says Taylor. “Not only were we looking to get all the benefits of the cloud, we needed something that would integrate with our existing Genealogy System. The change has been astounding. We can handle four times the business, and although we’re shipping three times as much product, our shipments are more accurate than they’ve ever been.”

Read Rick Taylor’s full SuperNova Award application here: https://www.constellationr.com/node/2108/vote/application/view/68.

The 2014 SuperNova Award finalists were selected from a pool of over 220 applications, and recognized by the SuperNova Award Judges as individuals who embody the SuperNova Award spirit to successfully and innovatively overcome the challenges of introducing new technologies to their organizations.

The winners of the SuperNova Awards will be announced at the SuperNova Awards Gala Dinner on October 29, 2014 in Half Moon Bay, California. The Gala Dinner will take place on the first night of Constellation’s Connected Enterprise innovation summit.

Selecting Finalists

The SuperNova Award Judges evaluated all SuperNova Award applications against a rigorous set of criteria to identify applicants worthy of advancement to the finalist round.

The SuperNova Award Judges, comprised of influential thought leaders and journalists, were individually selected for their futurist mindset and keen ability to separate substance from hype.

R “Ray” Wang, Chairman and Founder, Constellation Research, Inc. said, “I was extremely impressed by the quality of this year’s SuperNova Award applications. We at Constellation know advancing the adoption of disruptive technology is not easy. Disruptive technology adoption often faces resistance from supporters of the status quo, myopia, and financial constraint. We believe actors fighting these forces to champion disruptive technology within their organizations help, not only their organizations, but society as a whole to realize the potential of new and emerging technologies.”

Jon Roskill, CEO of Acumatica, says, “Youngevity is a shining example of how companies experiencing growing pains can turn things around with the right technology. It can be scary leaving the comfort of familiar software behind, but embracing something new and disruptive like Acumatica is often just what small and medium-sized businesses need to take them to the next level.”

Selecting Winners

The SuperNova Award winners will be determined by a combination of public votes and judges’ votes. The judges’ votes will be weighted at 70% of the total.

Public polling opens on September 9, 2014 on the SuperNova Award page on the Constellation Research website. Acumatica encourages the general public to vote for Rick Taylor to win a 2014 SuperNova Award for innovators in disruptive technology.

Voting will take place here from September 9 – 30, 2014. https://www.constellationr.com/events/supernova/2014

Acumatica Takes Partner Care to Next Level, Opens New Support Center in Ohio

August

28

Denver, Colorado, August 28, 2014 – Acumatica, a leading provider of cloud business management software, announced updates to its Partner Program and the opening of a new Level 2 Support Center in Ohio.

“By separating compensation or margins from competency or skills, and customer satisfaction, we believe that it will make it easier for customers to truly identify the right partner to address their specific needs,” said VP of Partner Strategy and Enablement Richard Duffy.

The partner program and recognition levels now tie to certifications against product skills and customer satisfaction, which are the two most important aspects of partner capability based on customer feedback.

These updates were announced this week in Denver, where Acumatica is hosting more than 400 partners at its annual Acumatica Partner Summit. The 100-percent partner channel company also kicked off training for its partners covering sales, implementation, and development yesterday.

Duffy said: “Our award-winning partner program focuses on competency, compensation, and conversation. Conversation is what we will be doing with our new Acumatica Roadshows, quarterly trainings in different cities across the US which brings us closer to our partners.”

The revised training courses are more aligned to the actual ERP implementation process, and combined with the newly launched EMPOWER Implementation Methodology, partners will have the skills and tools for customer and partner success, added Duffy.

Acumatica also announced the opening of a new Level 2 support center in Ohio, to better serve the support needs of partners.

“We heard you, and we’re giving you what you want,” said Ali Jani, VP of Product Management and Services. “Not only did we open the new support center, we created new direct support programs that partners can sell to their customers."

Duffy said: “What all this means for our customers is that they are now able to place even more faith and trust in our partners’ ability to successfully deliver an ERP implementation that helps them unlock their business potential.”

CEO Jon Roskill said: “We go to market 100 percent with and through our partners and we want to ensure they are being cared for and given the best chances to succeed. As we improve the quality and coverage of our partners by adding more marquee partners such as Collins Computing, BHE Consulting, and CS3 Technology, it makes sense our Partner Program and Support level up to serve them and our customers better.”

The companies demonstrated Azuqua’s recently launched cloud integration service featuring connectivity between a broad range of popular web services (including Salesforce, Office 365 and Hubspot) to Acumatica’s powerful business planning system.

With Azuqua's cloud platform a marketing manager can easily setup a connection within a few minutes between Hubspot and Acumatica, enabling new leads to flow into Acumatica from Hubspot and changes to those leads going back and updating Hubspot. This allows the company to keep it's web interaction management in Hubspot and get a 360 degree view of the customer in Acumatica.

Acumatica is making ERP accessible and integration with other SaaS systems is one of the key requests from customers and partners alike. “A partnership with Azuqua ensures that Acumatica users will now have access to an ever-growing library of SaaS services and can create integrations and business processes in an easy and code-free way. We are using the Hubspot and Acumatica integration to run our business,” said Roskill.

August

25

Denver, Colorado, August 25, 2014 – Acumatica, the fastest-growing provider of cloud business management software, today launched its mobile development framework, one of several much-anticipated features and functionalities in its 5.0 beta release.

“Unlike other Cloud ERP products, Acumatica orients on helping companies empower their employees,” said CEO Jon Roskill. “For partners, mobility is yet another capability with which they can meet the needs of their customers while opening up new revenue streams.”

Chief Technology Officer Mike Chtchelkonogov said, “You no longer have to be a developer to target the mobile market. In the past, partners may have needed to hire specialists to create iOS or Android applications, but with Acumatica’s new mobile development framework, any of our partners can do it. That’s adding value to our channel.”

Acumatica, which goes to market through a 100%-partner channel of 338 partner companies worldwide including VARs, ISVs, and OEMs, is hosting more than 400 partners at its annual partner summit in Denver this week.

Roskill’s Monday keynote included demos that showcased a new UI look and feel, stronger business functionality, and a better web platform. Among the features unveiled were Single Sign-On, MySQL and Amazon RDS support, multi-warehouse allocation and purchasing, B2B ordering, and Exchange Server integration.

Roskill said, “With 5.0, we’re delivering the kind of advanced warehouse management capabilities Walmart expects to mid-sized businesses. Such advanced capabilities previously available only in million-dollar-plus ERP products is now out-of-the-box functionality in Acumatica.”

The company also announced the availability of a beta Payroll module, adding to its growing list functional areas. The Payroll feature was developed together with partner PC Bennett.

VP of Product Management and Services Ali Jani said, “Usability is our calling card. Acumatica was designed to work on any device and browser, and with our new HTML5 standards-based UI designer, one can build company personalities and brand into their business systems.”

Denver, Colorado, August 25, 2014 – Acumatica, a leading provider of cloud business management software, today announced new technology partners of its recently released Cloud xRP Platform, continuing its momentum in the ISV marketplace.

“We are excited about the speed at which we are moving our development forward with the Acumatica Cloud xRP Platform,” said Allen Dobbins, CEO of AutoStar Solutions, Inc. “Without the platform, our project would have easily been extended by as much as two years.

ISVs building on the platform range from Avalara to Azuqua, another new partner.

Nikhil Hasija, CEO of Azuqua, said: “We found the Acumatica API surface easy to work with. The Acumatica team was very supportive as we were building the integration and we’re very excited about the changes coming up in Acumatica 5.0.”

Hasija was one of more than 400 partners in Denver this week for the annual Acumatica Partner Summit, where the latest Acumatica 5.0 beta was launched and demoed.

Brian Hodgson, VP of Sales & Marketing at Oz Development, said: “The Acumatica Cloud xRP platform's SDK and Web Services allow us to quickly connect the OzLink shipping and warehouse management solution. Not only have we developed a solution quickly, we are able to take this to market through the robust Acumatica partner channel. Through this strategic partnership with Acumatica, Oz Development can provide future Acumatica customers with tightly integrated, best-of-breed shipping and warehouse management solution that will help them grow their businesses.”

Seeing opportunity in growing business with Acumatica was American Payment Solutions’ reason for choosing Acumatica. CEO David Ford said: “American Payment Solutions has been a strong player in the payment gateway market for a long time. With this Acumatica integration, we are now able to serve an even bigger set of customers and can process credit card payments at low market rates.”

Christian Lindberg, VP of Partner Solutions at Acumatica, said: “Built on the familiar .NET framework, HTML user interface, and industry-standard web services, the Acumatica Cloud xRP Platform is easy and familiar to work with. It helps businesses take their solution to market faster while saving development costs and without compromising on functionality, performance or flexibility.

Acumatica Cloud xRP Platform Secures Broad Industry Support

May

29

Kirkland, Washington, May 29, 2014 – The Acumatica Cloud xRP Platform has launched with broad support from more than 10 software companies across the world building their industry applications on the platform today.

CEO Jon Roskill said: “I’m excited to see developers and software companies choosing to build their futures on the Acumatica Cloud xRP Platform. We’re offering a great choice to our partners to bring their new and legacy applications to the Cloud faster, cheaper, and without compromises.”

The Acumatica Cloud xRP Platform, where “x” represents any sized company, anywhere, in any industry, empowers developers and software companies to get their solutions to SaaS, fast. They can also leverage Acumatica’s pre-built ERP and CRM capabilities, while enjoying flexible deployment and tenancy options.

JAAS Systems built JAMS, its end-to-end manufacturing solution, in record time. General Manager Fred Szumlic said: “We saved $500,000 in development costs and delivered a Cloud manufacturing application in 10 months instead of three years.”

Jeff Noolas, CEO of JAMIS, provider of ERP solutions to government contractors, said: “We replatformed our legacy solution based on AS/400 COBOL in just 18 months. Any other platform would have taken us twice as long. By using Acumatica, we reduced development costs by 40 percent. In less than a year since launch, we now have 20 customers live on our JAMIS solution.”

The Acumatica Cloud xRP Platform, built on the standard Microsoft stack, is a compelling technology that simply works for today’s modern needs, partners added.

Jorge Soto, General Manager, M5 Software, said: “Acumatica is truly an object-oriented environment. Under the hood, everything is an object that has a function. In the programming world, that’s amazing. Many ERPs are not like that. We believe that this is the next great platform software. It is crazy good.”

M5 is behind the service management suite for Acumatica.

Kensium CEO Richard Grossi said: “With a large pool of skilled .NET developers, we were able to quickly ramp up on the Acumatica Cloud xRP Platform and open up a whole new revenue stream for our company by serving the rapidly growing Acumatica ecosystem and customer base.”

Serving customers was also on the mind of Bill Dean, CEO of ASI, which provides ERP solutions for non-profit organizations.

He said: “Leveraging the multi-tenant architecture of the Acumatica Cloud xRP Platform allows us to enter a new business of scale. We are now able to offer small Not-for-Profits the same robust functionality as medium or large Not-for-Profits at a price that is affordable with a path for future growth.”

These firms join leading software companies Visma and MYOB that announced partnerships with Acumatica last year. MYOB, largest accounting software company in Australia and New Zealand with more than 1.2 million customers, is building its SaaS offering on the platform. Nordic leader Visma, with over 350,000 customers, has already launched Visma.net, built on the Acumatica Cloud xRP Platform.

“Visma.net is a key milestone in Visma’s history,” the company’s CEO, Øystein Moan, said. “Our product is ready for business. More and more companies throughout our region are moving to the cloud and we want to offer our customers what they want and need. Our strong relationship with Acumatica will ensure that Visma.net customers will have access to a market leading, scalable and future-proof platform that will grow with them.”

Other Acumatica Cloud xRP Platform partnerships soon to be announced include software companies in diverse industries ranging from property management, to construction, to auto dealerships.

Acumatica’s partner ecosystem now includes more than 270 partners around the world such as ISVs JAAS Systems and Jamis, and OEMs MYOB and Visma. Visma, the leading provider of business software solutions to SMBs in Northern Europe, white-labeled Acumatica’s Cloud technology for thousands of its own customers and launched Visma.net last August.

JAMS — JAAS Advanced Manufacturing Software — an end-to-end manufacturing solution, was built using Acumatica tools in record time. JAAS Systems’ General Manager Fred Szumlic said: “We saved $400,000 in development costs and delivered a Cloud manufacturing application in 10 months instead of three years.”

Acumatica Not Impacted By Heartbleed Bug

April

14

KIRKLAND, WA, April 14, 2014 – Acumatica, the fastest-growing leader in Cloud-based Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solutions for small and medium-sized companies, today issued a statement that Acumatica is not impacted by Heartbleed security bug.

“Acumatica is not impacted by the Heartbleed bug,” said Stijn Hendrikse Chief Marketing Officer for Acumatica. “Our cloud infrastructure partners were not impacted or have taken steps to update its products to mitigate this vulnerability. We are following the Heartbleed Bug development very closely and will update as needed.”

The Heartbleed Bug (CVE-2014-0160) exploits a serious vulnerability in the OpenSSL cryptographic software library, enabling hackers to steal sensitive information typically protected by the SSL/TLS encryption used to secure the Internet. SSL/TLS provides communication security and privacy over the Internet for applications such as email, instant messaging, and some virtual private networks (VPNs).

Acumatica uses Microsoft Web Servers (IIS) which are not affected by the Heartbleed bug. Microsoft stated on its Azure blog that “Microsoft Azure Websites, Microsoft Azure Pac Websites and Microsoft Azure Web Roles do not use Open SSL to terminate SSL connections. Windows comes with its own encryption component called Secure Channel (a.k.a. SChannel), which is not susceptible to the Heartbleed vulnerability.”

Amazon, which confirmed its services affected included EC2 and Elastic Load Balancing (ELB), has since updated all its load balancers to address the OpenSSL vulnerability.

“With 4.2, we’ve stuck to the key themes of quality, reliability, and new functionality,” said Ali Jani, VP of Product Management and Services. “We strive to continuously enhance our product to give partners the best Cloud ERP solution in the market.”

The Acumatica product — recently named a CODiE finalist in the Best Supply Chain Management Solution category — boasts brand new functionality in both Acumatica Cloud ERP and the Acumatica Cloud Platform in its latest version.

The new version focuses on quality, improved usability of existing features, and expanded documentation and training materials. Among the significant new features included in the 4.2 release:

• Powered by Amazon: Acumatica SaaS is now powered by Amazon Web Services to provide the world’s best cloud infrastructure in compliance with regulations, standards, and best practices.
• Expanded contract management: Handle more complex business scenarios associated with subscription billings, including upgrades, retainers, rate control, third-party billings, delayed activation, and on-demand billing.
• PCI ready: Ensure compliance and guard against theft of credit card data when transacting credit card payments. When credit card information is entered, it remains in a secure private session between the credit card holder and the processing institution, never passing through Acumatica.
• Automated lead management: Manage large volumes of sales leads by creating rules and schedules for purging, assigning, and converting leads.
• Faster implementation, integration and synchronization: Set up integration with external data sources in a single step.

ERP Technology Evangelist Richard Duffy Joins Acumatica

April

01


KIRKLAND, WA, April 1, 2014 – Acumatica, the fastest-growing leader in Cloud-based Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solutions for small and medium-sized companies, today announced the appointment of Richard Duffy as VP of Partner Strategy and Enablement, effective immediately.

Duffy, a former SAP Mentor and well-known ERP technology evangelist with years of experience in SAP, Microsoft, and Dynamics GP, will lead partner strategy and on-boarding for Acumatica.

“I’m excited to start this new journey with Acumatica,” said Duffy, who moved to the Kirkland area from Australia last month. “I’m a huge proponent of Cloud ERP and this opportunity to join the fastest-growing company in this space was too good to pass. I can’t wait to work with partners to help them get ramped up on our vision, our brand, and our products that will take them into the future!”

CEO Jon Roskill said: “Richard brings years of ERP experience to our already strong leadership team. With his appointment, and the partners who are sure to follow, together we are well positioned to disrupt this $60-billion market.”

Roskill was named CEO earlier last month and takes over the reins just as Acumatica posted 350% year-over-year revenue growth, doubled channel numbers to more than 270 partners worldwide, and acquired high-profile customers such as publicly-traded American firm Youngevity and Vietnamese beverage manufacturer Tan Hiep Phat Beverage Group.

Duffy added: “The draw of Acumatica is its solid technology and product roadmap that makes sense for an increasingly mobile and SaaS world. Acumatica’s 100-percent partner focus is unheard of in this industry and I believe, the best way to grow vertically and horizontally in this space.”

He started his career with his own ERP business for 13 years, moved to Great Plains Software and Microsoft for 6 years, before landing at SAP, where he held various roles over the past 11 years in partner enablement and evangelism. As a former SAP Mentor, Duffy is an influential and well-known ERP champion who has also partnered with a recognizable brand, “Duct Tape Marketing” to help partners all around the world build more effective marketing strategies. He is also an active blogger and social media participant with a strong online following.

“I’ve been in this space for more than 20 years and Acumatica is where the future is,” said Duffy. “I’m ready to roll up my sleeves and jump in. I am keen to help our partners get certified, start selling, and grow together!”

March

17

KIRKLAND, WA, March 17, 2014 – Acumatica, the fastest-growing leader in Cloud-based Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solutions for small and medium-sized companies, announced today that it has been awarded a 5-Star rating in the CRN 2014 Partner Program Guide.

The annual directory of 5-Star ratings in the CRN 2014 Partner Program Guide recognizes an elite subset of companies that offer solution providers the best partnering elements in their channel programs.

Christian Lindberg, VP of Partners and Solutions at Acumatica, said: “It is an honor to be awarded a 5-Star rating in CRN’s 2014 Partner Program Guide. The team here at Acumatica has worked tirelessly to establish a robust partner program, and getting named to the list for the first time is a satisfying validation of our efforts. Thanks to our global partner network for going all in to help make our partner program such a success!”

Lindberg himself was named to CRN’s 2014 Channel Chiefs list earlier this year, a nod to his work driving channel sales and growth within Acumatica while evangelizing the importance of the channel.

Acumatica’s global network of more than 270 partner organizations includes top resellers in the United States and Asia such as SWK Technologies, ISM, and SAI. Acumatica sells exclusively through its recruited best-in-breed partners.

Acumatica CEO Jon Roskill said: “We are proud of this award as it shows a maturation of our partner program. We very much appreciate the recognition and will continue to strive to improve from here until we have the best Partner Program in the business applications market segment.”

He added: “Acumatica is 100-percent partner channel, and we intend to keep it that way. We are devoted to our channel because we cannot succeed without them. Together with our partners, we will become the cloud-based ERP solution of choice for small and medium-sized businesses.”

“Solution providers have a lot of choices when it comes to selecting vendor partners. Identifying the right vendor, with the right technologies, and the right approach can make all the difference,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. “Our annual Partner Program Guide and 5-Star rating recognizes the very best channel programs available in the market today to help solution providers determine which vendor delivers the best partner elements for their individual business goals.”

To determine the 2014 5-Star recipients, The Channel Company’s Research team assessed each vendor’s application based on investments in program offerings, partner profitability, partner training, education and support, marketing programs and resources, sales support, and communication.

The 2014 Partner Program Guide will be featured on CRN.com and the 5-Star Partners listing will be highlighted in the April issue of CRN.

Jon Roskill Joins Acumatica as CEO

March

06

KIRKLAND, WA, March 6, 2014 – Acumatica, the fastest-growing leader in Cloud-based Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solutions for small and medium-sized companies, today announced the appointment of Jon Roskill as Chief Executive Officer, effective immediately.

Roskill brings 25 years of leadership experience in the software business, including a 20-year career at Microsoft, where he held the position of Channel Chief.

“This is the perfect time to enter the ERP marketplace,” said Roskill, who takes over the reins from Yury Larichev. “It’s a market worth $60 billion, so capturing even just one percent of that revenue is incredible. It’s time the stodgy, old ERP scene got a shake-up. Acumatica is perfectly positioned to disrupt this space with its innovative Cloud ERP technology. As a long-time channel builder, I am especially excited about Acumatica’s 100-percent commitment to sell with and through partners.”

Larichev will stay on at Acumatica through March to ensure a smooth transition for Roskill. “I’m happy to have taken Acumatica this far,” said Larichev. “Since I joined, Acumatica has seen tremendous growth, and this will continue under Jon’s leadership. He is the right person, at the right time, for Acumatica. I’m excited to see him take Acumatica to new heights.”

Larichev, whose new role will be announced in the coming weeks, will stay on the Acumatica Board as an advisor.

Roskill said: “I’m impressed with the direction Acumatica has taken under Yury. I thank him for handing me a company poised for incredible growth, with a great worldwide team that is passionate about making waves in the business software space.”

In his 20-year career at Microsoft, Roskill held a variety of roles, and was most recently the Corporate Vice President running the Worldwide Partner Group that comprised more than 5,000 employees and 640,000 partners. He also ran all Microsoft US business operations, strategy and marketing, boasting more than $20 billion in sales; and was General Manager of the Server and Developer Tools Division. The father of two teenagers who started his career as a programmer is also an active start-up investor and popular public speaker.

Roskill’s appointment comes at an exciting time in Acumatica’s history. Last year, the company posted 350% year-over-year revenue growth. Spurring the company’s worldwide growth were partner recruitment, which doubled channel numbers to more than 270 partners; as well as the acquisition of high-profile customers such as e-Recycling and Youngevity.

“I’m here and I’m ready to make some impact,” said Roskill. “I love being an underdog and taking the bigger guys on. It’s time Acumatica made its stamp on ERP history. Bring it on.”

This is the largest retail show in the world with over 27,000 attendees and all of Acumatica’s competition who highlight their own retail solutions will be there as well.

Acumatica Helps New Zealand Electronics Manufacturer Become ISO-Certified

January

06

KIRKLAND, WA, January 6, 2014 — 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 Precision Manufacturing Solutions (PMSNZ), which saw a 20-percent increase in sales after switching to Acumatica.

PMSNZ, based in New Zealand, manufactures parts for the electronics industry. Since 2007, they’ve crafted soldering machines, reflow ovens, and paste printers. As the company grew, its system of using spreadsheets to organize data and convey information became unsustainable. 

“We were using multiple spreadsheets, folders, files, and even word-of-mouth to share information,” Managing Director Nathanial Fairweather said. “To extract data on one job, we had to open something like five documents. None of the different systems we were using were talking to each other.”

After searching for a web-based enterprise resource planning (ERP) system, PMSNZ chose Acumatica, which does not charge for individual user licenses. Fairweather said, “For a small company like ours, we might start out with five licenses, but as we grow, we will need more and we don’t want to pay for every additional license.”

“ERP vendors shouldn’t punish their customers for growing,” said Jean Gea, Acumatica’s Product Marketing Manager. “That’s why Acumatica doesn’t charge on a per-user basis.”

Since the switch to Acumatica’s browser-based system, PMSNZ has seen its staff and sales grow by 15 percent and 20 percent, respectively. The company also received its ISO 9001:2008 Quality Management System certification in early 2013. “Without the Acumatica suite, we would certainly not have gotten ISO-certified,” said Fairweather, who credited Acumatica for making PMSNZ well integrated, efficient, and accurate.

Doorset Manufacturer Moves to Acumatica, Enjoys 24/7 ERP Access

December

30

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.

Acumatica Announces Record-Breaking Year For New Customers, Partner Recruitment, Revenue

December

19

KIRKLAND, WA, December 19, 2013 — Acumatica, the fastest-growing cloud ERP provider, announced today a record year for new customer deals, increased revenue, and exciting plans for its 2014 Partner Summit.

“This is Acumatica’s strongest year yet,” said CEO Yury Larichev. “We’re proud of our 350% year-over-year revenue growth, our success in customer wins, and our expanding partner channel.”

Spurring the company’s worldwide growth were partner recruitment, which doubled channel numbers to more than 270 partners; as well as the acquisition of high-profile customers such as PostcardMania in the US, Super Sport International in South Africa, T1 MSN in Mexico, Cattlemen’s Beef Promotion and Research Board in the US, Hi Spec Doorsets in the UK, and Tan Hiep Phat Beverage Group in Vietnam.

Chief Sales and Marketing Officer Stijn Hendrikse said: “We’ve made tremendous gains in the worldwide marketplace, winning more customers with our compelling licensing and deployment model. In a lot of cases, we beat out competitors Sage or NetSuite to win the deals. I’m confident that with the team and partners in place, we are poised to make an even bigger splash next year.”

Sean Chatterjee, Vice President of Partner Sales, said, “Our customer acquisition rate is growing at a phenomenal rate. Once again, we experienced triple-digit growth year over year.”

One of Acumatica’s new customers in 2013 is leading dog treat company TDBBS in the US. Justin Morris, its Director of Ecommerce and CTO, said: “We evaluated several ERP solutions, and believe Acumatica is the ERP solution of the future. We wanted a flexible solution that could grow with our company and didn’t have any of the strings normally found with traditional license-based ERP solutions. We own it, have the flexibility to host in-house, in the cloud, or use a SaaS service.”

Outside of the US, Acumatica continues to expand into emerging markets. “The potential for growth in Asia is incredible,” Acumatica’s General Manager in Asia Erwan Philippe said. “We have recruited key partners in Southeast Asia and will continue to push for more strategic partnerships in 2014.”

December

KIRKLAND, WA, December 12, 2013 — Acumatica, the fastest-growing provider of cloud-based Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solutions for Small and Medium-sized Businesses (SMBs), today announced Information Sys Management, Inc. (ISM) has joined its growing VAR channel.

ISM, a leading ERP and accounting software reseller ranked #51 on the Accounting Today VAR 100 list this year, added Acumatica’s cloud offerings to its ERP portfolio, joining the ranks of more than 270 Acumatica partners.

“Acumatica’s cloud-based software makes it an ideal partner for ISM,” said ISM President BJ O’Reilly. “We added X3 and NetSuite, and also considered other competitors such as Intacct, but we realized many of our customers were better off upgrading to Acumatica because of its modern technology, licensing and deployment flexibility. That, in addition to a great partner program, made it the most desirable choice for ISM.”

ISM, headquartered in Portland, Oregon, with offices in Rockville, and San Diego, California, Phoenix, Arizona and Washington DC, offers strategies and solutions for information and business management needs for industries including e-commerce, hosting, distribution, and pharmaceutical manufacturing companies. Its annual revenue routinely exceeds $7 million, with a majority of its customers on Sage.

O’Reilly added: “Acumatica has a fantastic suite of products we know will appeal to our customers, who have been seeking out more opportunities to harness the Cloud.”

Angela Goldsmith, Senior VP of Enterprise Solutions at ISM, said: “We plan to onboard quickly, get certified, and start selling! With Acumatica’s solid product, we are confident to get our first wins sooner rather than later.”

Acumatica CEO Yury Larichev said, “ISM is a highly-recognized reseller with years of experience and a robust customer base. The company’s dedication to its customers, experienced consultants, and reputation for leadership and success are all qualities we seek out in partners.

“Acumatica is looking forward to its partnership with ISM. There is only one way to go from here, upwards and onwards!”

November

The fast-growing Cloud ERP vendor closes $10 million in third round of funding in bid to make over $1 billion in revenue in less than 10 years.

KIRKLAND, WA, November 18, 2013 — Acumatica, the fastest-growing provider of Cloud-based Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solutions for Small and Medium-sized Businesses (SMBs), announced today that it has raised $10 million in a Series C funding round led by Runa Capital and Almaz Capital.

“Acumatica is on a record growth trajectory,” said CEO Yury Larichev. “We are on track to grow 350% again this year. This new funding round will boost our all-up brand and product efforts as we become the top Cloud ERP solution for SMBs.”

The latest funding will enable Acumatica to accelerate its already aggressive growth and work with its robust partner channel to make its offering the Cloud ERP solution of choice for SMBs worldwide.

Leading Vietnamese Beverage Manufacturer Picks Acumatica, Gains Real-Time Market Visibility

October

31

HO CHI MINH CITY, VIETNAM, October 31 — Leading beverage manufacturer Tan Hiep Phat Beverage Group today celebrated its partnership with Acumatica, a global leader in Cloud-based Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solutions by announcing broad improvements in performance, mobility, and real-time decision-making.

“With Acumatica, we now know exactly what’s happening in the marketplace,” said Dr. Tran Qui Thanh, THP’s president and CEO. “Real-time visibility into daily business activities and timely business data now empowers every decision — from tactical ones on seasonal promotions to strategic decisions to extend market coverage.”

Together with Acumatica Gold Partner DMSpro, THP successfully implemented Acumatica in just four months across more than 200 distributors nationwide. The system that went live in September 2013 is used by 1,600 salespersons.

DMSpro CEO Peter Pham said, “Acumatica’s uniquely adaptable platform offers game-changing advantages that help THP further sharpen their competitiveness.”

Since its 1994 founding, THP has grown to become Vietnam’s leading beverage manufacturer by pioneering the healthy bottled drinks sector.

One of Vietnam’s biggest and fastest-growing companies, THP’s “Dr. Thanh” herbal tea and other beverages have been outselling Coca-Cola, Pepsi, and other competitors. THP employs more than 4,000 people and has experienced double-digit growth since 2007.

To maintain that growth, THP wanted real-time visibility and enhanced capabilities to help manage its more than 200 distributors, which are located in 64 cities and provinces across the country.

Before selecting Acumatica, THP was concerned with the security and data integrity of its legacy Microsoft Dynamics system. Going with the browser-based Acumatica 4.0 Financial Management and Distribution Management suites in a hosted environment not only improved security, but also user adoption, said Nguyen Thanh Huyen, CD-IT BP Manager of THP.

Stijn Hendrikse, Acumatica’s Chief Marketing and Sales Officer, said, “THP is the perfect example of a local enterprise that’s ahead in adopting technology and we’re proud THP has chosen Acumatica and DMSpro to help it grow and keep its leader position in Vietnam’s beverage market.

“Acumatica is growing fast in Asia and we’ll continue to see more significant customer wins in Vietnam and around the region.”

Acumatica’s General Manager in Asia Erwan Philippe said, “The strength of the Acumatica solution combined with the expertise of our Gold Partner DMSpro is just one example of how Acumatica is investing in Vietnam to raise the competitive edge of Vietnamese companies.

“Vietnam has an impressive technology talent pool to draw from and Acumatica is excited to work with specialized partners to win such preeminent customers like THP.”

Tile Distributor Switches to Acumatica, Improves Customer Service Efficiency

October

25

KIRKLAND, WA, October 25, 2013 — Acumatica, a global leader in cloud-based ERP solutions for small and medium-sized companies, announced today the publication of its latest case study, which features New England Tile’s improved customer service efficiency after switching to Acumatica.

Located in Fairfield, CT, New England Tile imports and sells tile and stone to homeowners, designers, and contractors. They have more than 8,000 products and were looking to replace their old enterprise resource planning (ERP) software with something more adaptable, functional, and affordable, according to the company’s owner, Pat Mobilio.
After looking at several ERP providers, including NetSuite, New England Tile chose Acumatica. “To have the kind of a system that does accounting, inventory, and sales is a huge plus,” said Mobilio. “To have all that functionality integrated together just makes our job a whole lot easier.”

Since implementing the Acumatica system, New England Tile’s efficiency and productivity have both improved. Mobilio estimates the change is saving the company $500 every month. Customer service has been transformed into a simpler, faster process as well.

“Acumatica makes us professional, modern—on the cutting edge of ERP software,” Mobilio said.

Open Mobile Implements Acumatica’s ERP System in 90 Days

October

08

KIRKLAND, WA, October 8, 2013 — Acumatica, a global leader in cloud-based ERP solutions for small- and medium-sized companies, announced today the publication of its latest case study, which features cell phone company Open Mobile’s migration to Acumatica’s system in only 90 days.

A Puerto Rico-based telecommunications company with hundreds of employees and tens of thousands of customers, Open Mobile was looking to replace their old financial system with something more nimble, affordable, and intuitive, according to the company’s Chief Financial Officer, Federico Grosso.

Open Mobile’s Senior Director of Information Systems, Rafael Diaz, was frustrated by their former product’s lack of compatibility with Microsoft Office, as well as its lack of features. “We had no control over the system. I would need to go to the vendor even for the most insignificant issues,” said Diaz.

With Acumatica, Diaz realized there would be no such issues. He considered Oracle eBusiness Suite and Microsoft Dynamics as well, but opted for Acumatica in the end. 

New Day Technology (NDT) assisted in transition Open Mobile’s data to Acumatica’s system. “I don’t think there has been such a successful implementation here as this one,” said Diaz.

In addition to being able to customize the system and integrate it with existing programs, Open Mobile’s employees can access their data from anywhere, even when they are away from their computers.

Jean Gea, Product Marketing Manager, said: “Being recognized with these two Stevie Awards is an important accomplishment for Acumatica. Our financial solution stands out in the marketplace and we are so happy to see our hard work pay off.”

More than 3,200 entries were submitted and more than 320 executives nationwide participated in judging to determine this year’s Gold, Silver and Bronze Stevie Award winners. The winners were announced this week in San Francisco at the Stevies Awards, now in its 11th year.

The American Business Awards honor a spectrum of American business people and organizations — from non-profits, start-ups, public companies and government agencies, to C-level executives, product developers, marketers and development teams.

KIRKLAND, WA, August 23, 2013 — Acumatica, the world’s fastest-growing provider of cloud-based ERP solutions to small and medium-sized companies (SMBs), recently conducted training for partners at its biggest annual summit yet.

A total of 282 partner attendees from 98 partner organizations showed up for the 2013 Acumatica Partner Summit in Leesburg, Virginia, this week. The three-day training included classes for Introductory and Intermediate Developer Training, as well as Customer Relations Management (CRM).

“We are excited that so many partners have joined our training this year,” said Education Director and Project Manager Valery Hill. “As our company grows, we want to make sure we continue to certify as many partners as possible to bring our brand to the next level.”

The number of classes doubled from last year, and now includes CRM, Sales Order Management, Project Accounting, Introductory Developer Training, Intermediate Developer Training, Hands-On Financial Configuration and Implementation, Hands-On Installation Technical Administration and Reporting, and a special module for JAAS Manufacturing.

The on-site classes at the 2013 Partner Summit complement Acumatica’s online classes, currently available on Acumatica University, an online learning management system launched earlier this year.

With Acumatica University, partners are able to have anytime, anywhere access to product training courses and videos.
Skip Reardon, Manager of Acumatica University, said: “We fully expect the growth of Acumatica’s worldwide channel ecosystem of VARs, ISVs, and OEMs will continue to feed the appetite for product knowledge about Acumatica ERP and our technology platform. Our highly accessible online University is designed to meet the demands for scalable product training and channel certification, and we expect it will have a positive impact on sales, channel satisfaction, and ultimately on customer satisfaction. ”

There are 88 courses on the site, and more than 1,500 courses have been taken and passed. So far, the number of users has grown from 300 at launch to more than 700 in August, which puts the University on track to gain 800 users by end of the year.

Visma.net, Built on Acumatica Technology, Expands its Cloud-Based ERP Offerings

August

20

KIRKLAND, WA, USA, and Oslo, Norway; August 20, 2013 — Acumatica, the world’s fastest-growing provider of cloud-based ERP solutions to small and medium-sized companies (SMBs) and Visma, the leading provider of business software solutions to SMBs in Northern Europe, announced Visma.net, a complete business solution, including a white-labeled version of Acumatica’s increasingly popular ERP solution as one of the key components, is ready for prime time.

“Visma.net is a key milestone in Visma’s history,” the company’s CEO, Øystein Moan, said. “Our product is ready for business. More and more companies throughout our region are moving to the cloud and we want to offer our customers what they want and need. Our strong relationship with Acumatica will ensure that Visma.net customers will have access to a market leading, scalable and future-proof platform that will grow with them.”

Yury Larichev, Acumatica’s CEO, said: “Visma.net is the result of almost two years of strong technology and business partnership between Visma and Acumatica. It’s a huge achievement for both our companies.”

Christian Lindberg, VP Partners and Solutions at Acumatica, said: “Visma’s many best-in-class customers will help make Visma.net including the Acumatica technology the de facto standard in cloud-based ERP in Europe. The success of Visma.net demonstrates Acumatica’s commitment to work hand in hand with its OEM partners as they deploy a localized version of the Acumatica solution.”

Acumatica’s relationship with Visma began in September 2011, when Visma, a Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co. portfolio company, invested in Acumatica, joining the ranks of other early investors. In the months since the agreement, extensive product testing and customization by Visma, working together with Acumatica, resulted in a final product uniquely suited to the countries Visma serves. This launched in the summer of 2012.

Customers in the northern European countries - Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Finland, and the Netherlands — now have access to a variety of pricing and application solutions. Basic modules are designed to streamline critical business areas, such as business intelligence, financial management, and payroll.

Moan announced that future refinements to Visma.net are currently in the works. These refinements should guarantee that Visma customers will have access to a state-of-the-art cloud-ERP solution now and for years to come.

More than 300 of Acumatica’s top partner attendees are currently attending the 2013 Partner Summit in Leesburg, VA.

Acumatica Recruits More Technology Partners, Continuing Rapid Growth

August

20

KIRKLAND, WA, August 20, 2013 — Acumatica, the fastest-growing global provider of cloud-based ERP solutions to small and medium-sized companies, announced today that 10 new Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) are joining its growing solution provider network.

Some of the new partners include Spitfire Management, Renovofyi, Solver, Infratel and SavantWMS.

“Acumatica’s unique development platform was one reason Spitfire decided to join the Solution Provider program,” Spitfire Managing Director Dennis Stroud said. “Just by using existing industry standard developer tools, I can go to market faster as we convert our existing solution to the Acumatica cloud platform.”

The growing popularity of Cloud ERP is a key reason cited by many partners to join forces with Acumatica.

“Acumatica’s cloud-based ERP perfectly complements our own Web-based financial report writer, Renovofyi,” said Renovo’s President Maureen Okerstrom, who in July was recognized as one of CRN’s Top Women of the Channel.”

“The cloud is where our customers are headed, and we want to be there with Acumatica providing a financial reporting solution that is cloud-ready and seamlessly integrated with Acumatica’s ERP suite. We are ecstatic to be partnering with Acumatica and feel their modern technology ERP solution will be one of the standards moving forward.”

Nils Rasmussen, CEO at Solver, said: “The choice was easy for Solver as a number of our existing resellers already have become Acumatica partners and our new Acumatica integration makes it very easy for these partners to also sell and implement BI360 with Acumatica.

“We also view the Acumatica partnership as strategic in nature because of the growth in cloud ERP popularity and by joining forces early on, Solver can provide current and future Acumatica customers with a tightly integrated, best-of-breed reporting, budgeting, dashboard and data warehouse solution that will help them to grow their organizations with world-class business intelligence.”

Bryan Goode, Infratel CEO, said, “Our goal is to give every small and medium business access to communication tools previously reserved only for the largest companies. Our partnership with Acumatica helps us deliver on this promise by integrating our ClickConnect and Contact Center solutions with the Acumatica platform for a seamless SMB back office solution.”

“Acumatica’s ERP system has proven to be a valuable asset to Savant WMS,” said Chris Jackson, its VP of Sales and Marketing. “Our customers greatly benefit from the secure data access, as well as real-time visibility in transit, warehousing and production. The system enables organizations to streamline their business processes significantly, increasing productivity and boosting their bottom line.”

These new companies join Acumatica’s more than 40 ISVs who deliver solutions or extensions with the Acumatica cloud platform. The new partners will add solutions in a range of industries from data warehousing to call centers.

Partners such as JAAS System, DiCentral, CurveCommerce, Avalara, Fusion and SiPD have already built successful solutions on the Acumatica cloud platform.

“DiCentral and ALLiGACOM have been strong players in the EDI market for a long time,” said Tiffany Gregson, Channel Sales Manager at DiCentral. “With DiCentral’s acquisition of ALLiGACOM, Acumatica users can now benefit from an increase in EDI integration options and an overall stronger supply chain management solution suite.”

Christian Lindberg, Acumatica’s VP of Partners & Solutions, estimates that new partners can expect to build cloud solutions about 66% faster and cheaper with the Acumatica platform than with more traditional options out there.

“We are excited to see these new partners come on board to build on Acumatica,” he said. “The momentum we see in these new solutions entering the marketplace is proof Acumatica’s Cloud ERP technology is the platform to bet on.”

This week, Acumatica launched 4.1, the latest version of its flagship product at the company’s 2013 Partner Summit in Leesburg, VA. The summit caps a busy year at Acumatica, which includes a move to its new headquarters in the Seattle area, as well as the set-up of a new regional office in Singapore.

Acumatica Signs Exclusive Multi-Million Dollar Deal With Australian OEM MYOB

August

19

KIRKLAND, WA, August 19, 2013 — Acumatica, the world’s fastest-growing provider of cloud-based enterprise resource planning (ERP) and financial software, and MYOB, the largest business management software provider in Australasia, today announced a multi-million deal.

The deal enables MYOB to localize and distribute Acumatica’s ERP solution platform, moving its offering to mid-sized clients into the online space.

“We are very pleased to sign this agreement with Acumatica,” said MYOB CEO Tim Reed. “The company’s renowned cloud solution will form a vital part of the MYOB product platform, strengthening our online proposition.”

“This opportunity allows us to respond to our mid-sized clients’ needs. While many are comfortable with desktop applications, others are keen to embrace the productivity benefits of the cloud. We are now in a position to implement a cloud-based ERP solution for our clients who are eager to reap the unique advantages of that environment. This provides a great alternative for mid-sized businesses to our existing on-premise MYOB EXO product range. It will form part of our MYOB Live family of offerings, complementing AccountRight Live, one of our online business management solutions for small businesses.”

Acumatica CEO Yury Larichev said: “MYOB has deservedly earned the respect of an enormous client base. At Acumatica, we are eager to leverage our extensive cloud business application platform to help ensure MYOB’s mid-sized clients will quickly enjoy the superior adaptability and scope of a Web-based ERP solution.”

An iconic Australia and New Zealand-based business leader, MYOB enjoys market shares as high as 70 to 80 percent within its operating markets.  Larichev noted that the partnership marks an important continuation of Acumatica’s strategy to expand the company’s product line via exclusive relationships with partners in various channels including ISVs, VARs, hosting providers, and – as in the case of MYOB – OEMs.

He added: “Large financial software providers such as MYOB understand that time to market is critical to succeed with a cloud-based ERP solution. And for many, the optimal solution is to leverage a proven product that has demonstrated increasing traction worldwide.”

The Acumatica-MYOB partnership is the second of its kind for Acumatica. In 2011, the company reached an agreement with Oslo, Norway-based Visma, the Scandinavian region’s largest software vendor, with about 340,000 customers in the Nordic countries as well as The Netherlands. As with Visma, MYOB receives exclusive rights to market the Acumatica platform under the company’s own brand name in Australia and New Zealand.

“While VARs, ISVs and hosting providers still account for the bulk of Acumatica’s valued partner network,” Larichev said, “our company will continue to pursue large-scale OEM deals, such as the one announced today. This is especially so in areas of the world where it will permit our products to become established quickly among a large customer base, helping the Acumatica ERP solution become the Cloud ERP world standard.”

About MYOB

Acumatica Releases Version 4.1 of Cloud ERP: Major User-Friendly Upgrades

August

19

KIRKLAND, WA, August 19, 2013 — Acumatica, the fastest-growing global provider of cloud-based ERP solutions to small and medium-sized companies (SMBs), today released its latest version — 4.1 — its most user-friendy product yet.

The key theme in this latest release is simplicity.

CTO Mike Chtchelkonogov said: “With 4.1, we’ve continued to build on our usability story. We know how the modern information worker uses and processes data and we’ve built our product to respond to those needs while offering anytime, anywhere access.”

Among the major upgrades included in this 4.1 release:

  • Advanced column and parametric filtering
  • Optimized data entry with suggestion and auto-complete capabilities
  • Real-time connectivity with Excel
  • The ability to add and secure specific import scenarios to the menu system
  • Improved layout of reports and printed forms
  • Simplified scheduling for recurring general ledger, accounts payable, and accounts receivable transactions
  • Expanded developer documentation
  • Drag and drop support for uploading and attaching files

Chtchelkonogov added: “We listened to our partners and added key functionalities into Acumatica 4.1 that matter to our users. We’ve improved so much in our latest release that it’s more than just a 4.1 refresh. You can even say this is a 4.5 release. We’ve taken the product so far, and I am excited to build on that to offer even more in 5.0.”

Acumatica 4.1, when paired with the company’s flexible licensing options, makes it a compelling product, said CEO Yury Larichev. “The flexible licensing and deployment options that Acumatica offers, from subscription or perpetual to on-premises or hosted cloud options, gives our customers true choice in the marketplace.

“We also never charge per user, and so this unlimited user pricing helps growing businesses account for, and include everyone in the company without breaking the bank.”

The much-anticipated new version was showcased at the 2013 Acumatica Partner Summit in front of more than 300 partner attendees from 98 partner organizations, a record turnout for the annual event.

“The terrific response we’ve seen at this year’s Partner Summit is proof that Acumatica’s Cloud ERP is gaining traction among partners and customers,” Larichev said. “Our company has exciting plans for the future, which we shared with our partners, and we look forward to growing our bottom lines together.”

Acumatica Adds Partners Worldwide, Continues Rapid Expansion

August

18

KIRKLAND, WA, August 18, 2013 — Acumatica, the fast-growing provider of cloud-based ERP solutions to small and medium-sized companies (SMBs), announced today that it has added more than 50 partners to its channel this year, including more than 40 in the last four months as part of a focused recruitment effort.

The global network currently includes 221 partner organizations.

Acumatica sells only through the best-in-breed partners it recruits, so this expanded team will help position its cloud-based ERP solution as the choice of small and medium-sized businesses around the world, said Stijn Hendrikse, the company’s Chief Sales and Marketing Officer.

He added: “Acumatica is the only cloud ERP vendor committed to its 100% partner channel. We never go direct and have walked away from direct deals because we believe completely in our channel.”

Many of these new partners will be attending the 2013 Acumatica Partner Summit in Virginia this week, including The Macabe Associations, Inc., Faye Business Systems, and Access Systems from the United States. More than 300 partners from 98 organizations and 12 countries are expected to attend the annual event.

“We’ve doubled the number of partners for our annual summit, proof we are doing something right,” said Hendrikse. “We have a solid product and partner program and we’re ready to work with our partners to take the company to the next level.”

Acumatica’s flexible pricing and licensing model — including unlimited user pricing — coupled with its modern technology is a compelling draw for partners looking for that cloud ERP product for their portfolio, said Director of Partner Recruiting Dawn Jaeger.

Jaeger said: “We are riding a strong wave of momentum in the US as we push ahead on recruiting more partners. We’ve got a great team in Acumatica working together to gather the most motivated and enthusiastic partners around.”

David Faye, from new partner Faye Business Systems Group in the US, said, “We became an Acumatica partner because we needed a cloud-based ERP solution with hosting options, unlimited customizability, and at a great price point. There is a huge demand in the market for a mature solution with these attributes, and Acumatica fits the bill. We’re excited to attend the Summit to learn all about the company and its technology, and to jumpstart this partnership for both our successes.”

Alvin Dziurzynski, President of Access Systems, Inc., said: “We have received more proactive partner assistance from Acumatica in three weeks than some other business software vendors have provided us in years. My definition of a partnership is a bi-directional, collaborative relationship. Many software vendors say ‘partner’ but they practice ‘dealer.’ Acumatica truly treats us as a partner by listening to our comments and making suggestions to grow our mutual business.”

The new partners include more than 15 from the Southeast Asian region.

Erwan Philippe, General Manager in Asia, said: “Going ‘glocal’ is the key to success as we forge ahead in new markets internationally. That local touch as we expand globally is so important in recruiting new partners.”

One of Acumatica’s newest partners in Asia is Vietnam-based Innovative Consulting. CEO Tin Le said, “It was clear from the start that Acumatica offered the kind of partnership that we had been looking for. Its superior technology paired with the experience and expertise of the local team made it an easy decision for us.”

The company is expected to release its latest version 4.1 at the summit this week. Acumatica 4.1 includes updates to the customer portal, improved functionalities, and better usability.

CEO Yury Larichev said: “This year’s Partner Summit is an important milestone for Acumatica. Not only is it our biggest summit yet, we are releasing 4.1, which includes some of our best updates to the product. We are proud to offer a much more usable, better designed and enhanced product to our partner community and to share profits as we grow together.”

All individuals and organizations worldwide – public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small — are eligible to submit nominations. The 2013 IBAs received entries from more than 50 nations and territories.

Nicknamed the Stevies for the Greek word for “crowned,” the awards will be presented to winners at a gala awards banquet at the W Hotel in Barcelona, Spain, on October 14.

“We are truly honored to win this award,” said Yury Larichev, Acumatica’s CEO. “When we set out to design Acumatica, our goal was to provide SMBs with capabilities that lead the industry in terms of usability and functionality. It is gratifying that the judges at the International Business Awards, given their vast experience evaluating products within our niche, have singled us out for this special recognition.”

More than 250 industry experts around the world selected the winners from some 3,300 nominations that were received from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry.

“The 2013 International Business Awards are noteworthy for featuring the best collection of entries we have ever received,” said Michael Gallagher, president and founder of the Stevie Awards. “The judges have been unanimous in their comments about the quality of achievements, and the expertise with which they were portrayed, in the nominations we received this year. We extend our most heartfelt congratulations to all of this year’s Gold, Silver and Bronze Stevie Award winners.”

Acumatica 4.1 will make its official debut just days from now, when Acumatica’s worldwide partners gather for the company’s annual Partner Summit that kicks off August 19 in Leesburg, VA. This year’s number of partner attendees at the summit has exceeded management expectations.

“The Stevie Award demonstrates that we’re on the right track as we continue to improve our products with the goal of becoming the industry standard in Cloud ERP,” Larichev said.

Leading Dog Treat Company Picks Acumatica’s Cloud ERP Products Over Netsuite

July

23

KIRKLAND, WA, July 23, 2013 — It was paws for applause at the normally busy offices of Acumatica, the world’s fastest-growing provider of cloud-based ERP solutions, when the team learned that TDBBS had selected the company’s Cloud ERP platform over Netsuite.

“Netsuite was very aggressive in promoting its solution,” said Joel Gress, CEO of Dynamic Tech Services, the Acumatica Gold Partner who guided TDBBS through its selection process as well as Acumatica 4.0 deployment.

“But in the end, Acumatica’s differentiators in superior technology and on-premises and SaaS choices convinced TDBBS of its value.”

TDBBS, of Richmond, VA, is a leading natural pet products manufacturer with a large fan base of animal lovers. In addition to its strong support for pet-related charities, the company is well known for its all-natural bully sticks, which are wrapped, branch-like dog treats made from free-ranging Brazilian beef cattle. Each bully stick is hand inspected by company staffers in Virginia.

“Our customers appreciate the all-natural quality of our products,” said Avrum Elmakis, the family-owned company’s CEO and founder. “We are passionate about pets and want to provide the highest quality products that we can possibly source.” 

Elmakis said that TDBBS was won over by the Acumatica product, Dynamic Tech Services, and JAMS Manufacturing, which provided the advanced manufacturing software module for its operations.

“We evaluated several ERP solutions, and believe Acumatica is the ERP solution of the future,” said Justin Morris, Director of Ecommerce and CTO. “We wanted a flexible solution that could grow with our company and didn’t have any of the strings normally found with traditional license-based ERP solutions. We own it, have the flexibility to host in-house, in the cloud, or use a SaaS service.”

Since Acumatica is an asp.NET based solution, it installed in minutes to TDBBS’ server and allowed the company full control to customize business processes within the system.

Stijn Hendrikse, Acumatica’s Chief Marketing Officer, said: “Joel’s attention to detail and his ability to understand TDBSS’s business needs were instrumental to the company’s selection of our products. There are thousands of manufacturers and businesses like TDBBS that focus on product and operational quality.”

“We hope that TDBBS’s choice of Acumatica will demonstrate that our products are top dog in the industry and that we have assembled a global network of experienced partners who can customize our solutions in a way that unleashes productivity like never before.”

Financial Services Firm Saves 80% on Projected Deployment Costs with Acumatica

July

19

KIRKLAND, WA, July 19, 2013 — Acumatica, a leading global provider of cloud-based ERP solutions to small- and medium-sized companies, today announced publication of its latest case study featuring financial services firm Caystone Solutions’ 80% savings on deployment costs.

Caystone Solutions Ltd. (pronounced key-stone), a Nassau-Bahamas business services and family office firm launched last year, wanted a flexible and scalable solution with readily customizable reporting tools for the company’s clients.

The company looked for features such as multiple currency support to accommodate its global clientele, as well as a flexible licensing policy that let the start-up add users at no additional cost, according to Desaree Romer, Caystone’s manager of client and corporate accounting.

High on Romer’s wish list was also the ability to host the cloud-based platform on servers located in the Bahamas.

After a rigorous search process, Caystone picked Acumatica over competitors that included Oracle, Peachtree Software, and Advent Software.  

“Acumatica was part of our business almost from day one,” Romer said. “We knew it was the best system to build our business then, and it would be the right choice to grow our business later.”

Atlanta-based Dynamic Tech Services, an Acumatica Gold Partner, helped Caystone in the initial deployment stages. Because Acumatica was so easy to use, the Bahamian firm’s own employees were able to configure and test a large portion of the platform’s powerful customization features themselves.

Now Caystone’s clients can view their own financials via a browser, a feature that minimizes the need for in-person meetings and as a result, saves the firm up to eight hours per client every quarter.

Acumatica Launches Campaign To Recruit New Partners

July

18

KIRKLAND, WA, July 18, 2013 — Nothing says summer like a pair of flip flops. And that’s what fast-growing Cloud ERP provider Acumatica counted on when they mailed out pairs of flip flops this summer in an unusual recruiting campaign.

“We wanted a unique way to get our message to prospective partners,” said Charlie Horton, Channel Marketing Manager at Acumatica. “It’s not every day you get a pair of flip flops in the mail. We want people to take a moment to check out the invitation and come meet Acumatica to learn more about our 100% partner-channel opportunities.”

A custom Website address on the flip flops directs recipients to a personalized invitation to the “Exploring Acumatica: The Partnership Opportunity” event, held August 17 and 18 at Lansdowne Resort in Leesburg, VA; where they will learn about Acumatica’s offering of a modern product, attractive partner margins, and attentive account managers.

The campaign to recruit new partners for the six-year-old company marks a key point in Acumatica’s growth, as it gets ready to host more than 250 current partners at the same location right after the “Exploring Acumatica” event. The annual summit features five days of keynote speeches and training.

As for the prospective partners-to-be, they can expect to enjoy two days of resort living while learning about Acumatica’s partner program. Perhaps, they will even bring along their flip flops.

Acumatica Picks Leading Tech-Industry Female Executive to Head its Partner Recruiting

June

17

KIRKLAND, WA, June 17, 2013 — Acumatica, the world’s fastest-growing provider of cloud-based ERP solutions to small and medium-sized companies, announced it has hired veteran tech-industry, business-development executive Dawn Jaeger to head up its partner recruiting team.

“Dawn is one of the leading women in our industry,” said Acumatica Chief Marketing Officer Stijn Hendrikse. “Her stature, successful track record, and expertise will make a vital contribution to Acumatica’s business. Since we distribute our products exclusively through a rapidly expanding worldwide network of VARs, ISVs, and OEMs, we know that her efforts will ensure Acumatica continues to attract the best and the brightest partners to grow our business with theirs.”

Jaeger said, “I am excited to join Acumatica and contribute to its growth. My previous experience building and maintaining partner networks has taught me that trust and a thorough understanding of each partner’s unique needs are fundamental to building a successful channel. I am confident my track record shows new and existing partners I always have their best interests at heart.”

Jaeger has held senior marketing and sales positions for nearly two decades.

Release of Acumatica 4.0 in Mexico Creates Broad-Based Media and Customer Excitement

May

28

MEXICO CITY, MEXICO - May 24, 2013 - Acumatica Mexico, an affliate of Acumatica, the world’s fastest-growing provider of cloud-based enterprise resource planning (ERP) and financial software, launched the company’s latest release to great fanfare in the nation’s business press and among small and medium-sized companies (SMBs) this month.

“Acumatica 4.0’s presence in the Mexican ERP market is a game changer,” said Federico Porras, country manager of Acumatica Mexico. “It will give thousands of Mexican companies access to a platform that enables them to readily gather information on both their customers and their business processes and then apply powerful tools to analyze that information in order to make their operations more efficient and profitable. We are delighted with the attention the release of Acumatica 4.0 has received in the media and by our new developer partners as well as the growing list of prospective customers.”

The software provider opened its office in Mexico City on November 21, when more than 200 potential business users and partners attended its launch. With 4.0, Acumatica Mexico is raising its profile yet again.

Various top-tiered newspapers in Mexico, including El Reforma, El Financiero, El Universal y El Sol de Mexico, noted that only a small percentage of the country’s SMBs made use of cloud-based ERP software, so the opportunity to grow was vast.

And with Acumatica’s flexible licensing terms such as unlimited users, more companies in Mexico will be able to open access to customers, suppliers and employees.

Acumatica’s Chief Marketing Officer Stijn Hendrikse and Director of International Channel Sales Sean Chatterjee were also on hand to meet members of the IT press that included outlets such Notimex, Infochannel, E-Semanal, CIO Magazine, Mundo TI, Diario TI, BOLETIN DE LA COMPUTACIÓN, AMITI, NETMEDIA, BBVA – Pyme Bancomer, and EL Financiero.

Acumatica 4.0 incorporates more than 40 new customer-driven feature enhancements in areas such as financial, distribution, CRM, and project accounting suites. The Mexican version of Acumatica 4.0 also includes localization features to ensure it is well suited to that nation’s legal, technical, and fiscal business requirements.

Manila, Philippines, May 7, 2013 — Acumatica, a leading global provider of cloud Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and financial software, has launched Acumatica 4.0, the latest version of its Cloud ERP in the Philippines. More than 100 regional customers and partners participated in the launch event held at the Intercontinental Hotel Manila.

“Southeast Asia, and the Philippines in particular, is one of the key markets for our international expansion,” said Chief Marketing Officer Stijn Hendrikse. “This is why we’re presenting Acumatica 4.0 in Manila. We see great demand on the local market for cloud products, even though they are still less popular than on-premise solutions. And that is why Acumatica ERP can be deployed both on cloud or on-premise, to meet important business requirements while sometimes facing internet connection challenges. We believe that 4.0 will allow us to significantly increase both the number of the partners and customers in the Philippines.”

The latest version of Acumatica includes more than 40 new customer-driven feature enhancements across all financial, distribution, CRM, and project accounting suites. New integrated functionality has been added to the general ledger, cash management, accounts payable, accounts receivable, and employee portal applications.   

Andrew Crafton, Managing Director of Acumatica Philippines, “The Philippine market is tired of the old client/server ERP and first gen cloud solutions. They are looking for new technology to run their businesses the way they want to that is easy, affordable, and flexible. Acumatica is the next gen cloud solution that is born in the cloud.  We are tomorrow's solution for today's users.”

Acumatica Cloud ERP Launches Acumatica University for Anywhere, Anytime Cloud-Based Product Training

April

24

KIRKLAND, WA—April 24, 2013—Acumatica, a leading global provider of cloud Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and financial software, has launched “Acumatica University,” an online learning management system, making it easier and faster for its global partner channel network to be trained and certified on Acumatica’s cloud ERP products.

Acumatica teamed up with Litmos (a CallidusCloud company) to use their cloud-based learning management system as the basis for the University. Acumatica channel partners now have anytime, anywhere access to product training courses, training videos, knowledge assessment exams, and satisfaction surveys from any web-browser, including mobile access from iOS and Android devices.

Since Acumatica University’s pilot launch in January 2013, more than 350 individuals from over 100 channel partner firms (in 20 countries) have actively engaged in taking product training courses, and becoming certified on Acumatica’s award-winning financial, distribution, project, and technical platform suites. The University currently offers 65 courses covering 100 hours of learning that includes 40 training videos. To date, over 770 courses have been completed by channel partners globally. 

Expectations are high for extending the use and content of Acumatica University. Both the amount of training content, and number of channel partners using the University, are expected to double before the end of 2013. The online University is complimented by instructor-led live training events, offered in the Spring and Fall each year.

In addition to deep product implementation and usage training, the University also offers channel partner enablement courses, which help to ramp and on-board new partners through the Acumatica sales and marketing operations process. Also being added to the University are webinars describing Acumatica’s partner/ISV solutions, which add value to Acumatica customer installations by offering vertical and point solutions. 

Valery Hill, Director of Product Management, is thrilled about the success of Acumatica University. “It has been rewarding to see the development of Acumatica University. It has advanced quicker than I expected and could not be happier with the progress. We hope to gain more users and significantly improve the knowledge of individuals about Acumatica.”

“We take product education and training seriously at Acumatica for a very simplistic reason,” said Skip Reardon, Manager of Educational Technology and Training Programs. “The more educated our channel partners become about our products and solutions, the more confident and successful they’ll be in demonstrating Acumatica to prospective customers, and the easier it will be for them to implement our cloud ERP solutions.  The sooner our channel partners can be trained and certified, the higher their margins become, which leads to quicker profitability and ROI for them.”

During the sales order entry or the invoice entry, sales tax can be automatically calculated after saving or releasing a document. After releasing the document, the user can navigate to the Tax Details tab and see the tax that has been applied to the customer invoice as well as the tax total amount on the document summary.

“We have a vibrant and innovative partner ecosystem built around Acumatica,” said Christian Lindberg, Acumatica’s VP Partner Solutions. “Developing applications for Acumatica 4.0 allows our partners to access our latest technologies and deliver true competitive advantage to mid-market customers.  We congratulate Avalara for bringing their innovative AvaTax service to Acumatica customers.”

Acumatica Cloud ERP Makes Technology Adoption Profile Study from Independent Research Firm Available

March

07

KIRKLAND, WA, March 7, 2013- Acumatica, a leading global provider of cloud Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and financial software, today announced the availability of a Technology Adoption Profile (TAP) study, a commissioned research study conducted by Forrester Consulting on behalf of Acumatica. 

The availability of the Forrester Consulting TAP study came during the Spring Training Summit events surrounding the launch of Acumatica 4.0, the broadest, most extensive cloud ERP product release in the company’s history. 

The Forrester Consulting TAP study identifies and validates the key inhibitors to SaaS ERP adoption by small and medium-size businesses (SMBs), and includes figures/charts highlighting detailed research results explaining: 

 

  • Why lower cost and improved user experience are compelling reasons firms cite to embrace SaaS applications
  • Why security, integration, and vendor lock-in are top concerns for firms considering SaaS
  • The key benefits of SaaS: freeing up IT resources, speeding deployment, and improving business agility
  • Why medium-size businesses rate accessibility and flexibility as “must-have “functionality for cloud ERP
  • Why medium-size businesses would like cloud ERP to be highly flexible, particularly around reporting and workflow
  • Why medium-size businesses are most concerned about the potential rising costs of cloud ERP as their businesses grow

 

This TAP leveraged Forrester’s Forrsights Software Survey, Q4 2012 and isolated responses of North American software decision-makers at small to medium-size businesses with between 20 and 500 employees. Forrester Consulting supplemented this analysis with custom survey questions asked of 52 software decision-makers at US small to medium-size businesses with between 25 and 250 employees. The respondents were asked for their opinion on the drivers, benefits, and must-have and nice-to have functionality and features of cloud ERP as well as their concerns about the technology.

“We believe that Forrester’s insights and understanding of the concerns and needs of SMBs – the customers that rely on and benefit from using Acumatica every day – highlight the tremendous need for adaptability and flexibility in the choice of cloud ERP,” said Stijn Hendrikse, Chief Marketing Officer for Acumatica. “As more SMBs move to the cloud, it’s vital for them to be well-educated about their options for deployment, pricing, integration, data security, and customization,” he added.

The 9-page Forrester Consulting TAP study (PDF) is now available for download from the Acumatica website at Cloud ERP: An Adaptable, Consumable, And Flexible Option For Medium-Size Businesses

Acumatica Cloud ERP Names Christian Lindberg as Vice President of Partner Solutions

February

14

KIRKLAND, WA, February 14, 2013 –  Acumatica, a leading global provider of cloud Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and financial software, today announced that it has named Christian Lindberg as Vice President of Partner Solutions, effective immediately. 

In this new role, Lindberg will be responsible for growing Acumatica’s successful Independent Software Vendor (ISV) ecosystem.

“I’m excited to have Christian lead our ISV efforts,” said Stijn Hendrikse, Chief Marketing Officer for Acumatica. “With his experience and expertise in this space, he is the perfect candidate to drive partnerships with ISVs to deliver the solutions that benefit customers and raise Acumatica’s profile even further.”

Acumatica’s global ISV program already includes more than 60 ISV partners, with integrated vertical functionality from JAAS Systems, Jamis, Accellos, and seamless integration from partners such as Avalara, ADP, ALLiGACOM, CompuPay and SIPD Services.

Swissphone Achieves 50% Increases in Time Savings with Acumatica Cloud ERP

January

22

KIRKLAND, WA, January 22, 2013 – When you’re Swissphone, the global market leader for complete alerting solutions for saving lives, it’s no secret that time, reliability and responsiveness are your competitive advantages.

When Swissphone’s U.S. subsidiary, which supplies analog and digital paging devices used for emergency events to volunteer fire departments in America began to experience slowdowns an untimely interruptions in their daily routines, it became painfully obvious it was time to select a new ERP system.

”A reliable ERP system is very important to an emergency communications business like ours”, said Chris Haag, Swissphone. “If our systems don’t run properly because our server is down, our customers and employees become frustrated. We have a repair turnaround time that is above our competition. This is crucial for our reputation among our customers and that is something we must keep. Having a system delaying the processing of orders is something we cannot have.”

“There were even several occasions when power outages struck at the data center where the server was located, crippling the business. “We could not input an order, get an order out or even look up a customer,” says Haag. “It got to a point where we got very frustrated with dealing with issues every single day. It was causing too much downtime. We started investigating cloud-based ERPs and we decided to make the switch.”

Swissphone evaluated several cloud ERP systems, and ultimately chose to go with Acumatica. “Their decision to go with Acumatica was motivated by much more than its cloud technology,” said Robert Houdeshell, President of Strata ERP, a Colorado-based Acumatica partner. “Swissphone needed an entire distribution system, and Acumatica offered this in a fully-optimized cloud ERP environment.” With the support of Strata ERP, Swissphone switched over to the new Acumatica ERP system in just under three months.

“The transition was a lot easier than I expected,” said Swissphone’s Haag. “Now, our ERP is running smoothly, it’s more reliable and it’s easier to customize. Acumatica is ideal for us.”

Another benefit is how third-party add-ons integrate with Acumatica. While Swissphone used to have the hassle of implementing and using separate systems and tools for shipping, credit card processing and business intelligence, all this is built into Acumatica. Houdeshell says: “It allows you to automate key workflow processes without paying for individual user licenses. With Acumatica, they get what they need, and Swissphone saves money in the process.”

Acumatica offers a unique cloud ERP solution with key differentiators, including its rich browser-based and mobile user interface, and single code base across all three distinct deployment models: hosted by the customer, on the Microsoft Azure cloud, and SaaS,” added Larichev.

Larichev’s career spans more than 15 years in the software business. Before joining Acumatica as COO in September of 2012, he worked for Microsoft where he served as General Manager, Worldwide SMB Sales & Marketing Operations. In that role he led Microsoft’s field sales enablement and customer life cycle strategy, driving adoption of on-premises and cloud software by Small and Mid-Size Businesses. Prior to that position he served as Director of Small Midmarket Solutions & Partner Group at Microsoft Russia.

“Acumatica came to Mexico to revolutionize the ERP market, meeting the needs of Mexican companies that have prevented them from taking advantage of cloud services,” said Federico Porras, Country Manager, for Acumatica Mexico. “Acumatica enables small and midsized businesses access to a world-class ERP solution, technologically superior to other alternatives, while being flexible, friendly, and very affordable.

“While November 15 was the official launch event, we’ve been diligently getting Acumatica ready for Mexico. During this time, we prepared and certified the channel, localized the software, added electronic invoicing capabilities, and implemented Acumatica with several customers in Mexico,” said Porras.

Over 200 people attended the launch event, including 190 prospective business users, and 14 prospective value-added resellers (VARs). Acumatica’s certified channel partners also attended the event, to meet with prospects and provide laptop demonstrations of the software to interested attendees.

Cloud ERP Software Keeps Businesses Running Through Hurricane Sandy

November

Logo ame 150

McLean, VA, November 21, 2012 Hurricane Sandy had a wide-ranging and devastating impact as it slammed though the U.S. East Coast just a few short weeks ago.

While power and internet service was out for hundreds of thousands of businesses and residences all along the East Coast for well over a week, smart technology planning and adoption of cloud technologies kept businesses like AME Corporation up and running, and in touch with their employees, their customers and suppliers, shortly after the storm subsided.

AME Corporation specializes in custom rubber and plastic components and sealing solutions, with locations in New Jersey and Shanghai, China. About five years ago, AME Corporation’s President and CEO Ehren Dimitry had the foresight to understand how cloud computing could really give his business a competitive advantage, and could help save his business in the event that natural disasters like Hurricane Sandy strike. In looking back over the past several weeks, Dimitry admitted he had no conceivable notion that anything like Sandy would ever hit the East Coast.

“When Sandy struck, we were all without electricity and internet service for over a week, and to make things worse, there was a gasoline shortage,” said Dimitry. “Fortunately, we still had mobile phone service, and were able to reroute our VoIP phone lines to our mobile devices using Google Voice, a VoIP service Google runs in the cloud. Our corporate email and calendar, also driven by Google’s Gmail cloud service, kept our communications with employees, customers, and suppliers on track,” added Dimitry.

AME uses Acumatica’s built-in business wiki to create and store standard operating procedures, workflow diagrams, and collaborative documents between operations in New Jersey and Shanghai. AME is working with Acumatica partner SIPD Services to fully integrate Box, AME’s preferred cloud-based file repository and collaboration service. “By using Acumatica Studio, the development platform, and familiar tools such as Microsoft Visual Studio, the strong web services and integration capabilities offered by Acumatica and Box allow us to deliver a unique solution that leverages the strengths of these two cloud pioneers and innovators,” said Gabriel Michaud, co-founder of SIPD Services, based in Quebec.

Today, CEO Dimitry looks back on his decision to move all of their business operations and apps to the cloud as one of the most important inflection points in the company’s history. “We made it through the biggest natural disaster in recent history, and cloud computing made it possible. I encourage all businesses to migrate to the cloud, not just for risk mitigation, but for better collaboration, communication and up-time. Do it now, as you never know when disaster will strike,” added Dimitry.


AME Selects Acumatica Cloud ERP to Integrate Domestic and International Operations

Logo ame 150

McLean, VA, October 29, 2012 Acumatica, a leading global provider of cloud enterprise resource Planning (ERP) and financial software, today revealed a successful story of cloud ERP migration, showcasing one of their customers, AME Corporation.

AME Corporation is a manufacturer and distributor/supplier of rubber and plastic components and sealing solutions, with locations in New Jersey and Shanghai, China. Migrating from an older client-server ERP system, AME’s new requirements included a scalable user licensing model, integrated financials, supply chain and document management, multi-user licensing support, and multi-location capabilities all delivered as an integrated cloud solution with built-in contingency planning.

AME’s former ERP solution was Made2Manage, a product that was based on dated technology and could not natively handle distribution. AME reviewed several Cloud ERP solutions and narrowed down its search to two solutions – Acumatica and SAP’s Business by Design.

“Acumatica is a breath of fresh air in the ERP community and is changing the whole landscape in favor of customers. Everyone else has an old-school mindset, even NetSuite, which has remained stuck in a traditional ERP pricing model,” said Ehren Dimitry, president and CEO of AME Corporation. “The scalability of Acumatica far exceeds its competition in terms of the licensing costs. I am not limited by the number of users within Acumatica, and I am no longer penalized for growing my business,” added Dimitry.

Because Acumatica has an open API at the system level, AME worked with Acumatica partner SIPD Services to fully integrate Box.com, AME’s preferred cloud file repository and collaboration service. “Acumatica uses an industry standard platform and development environment, said Gabriel Michaud, co-founder of SIPD Services, based in Quebec. “By working with familiar tools such as Microsoft Visual Studio, I can offer AME Corporation tailored and fully integrated solutions quickly and efficiently. The strong web services and integration capabilities offered by Acumatica and Box allow us to deliver a unique solution that leverages the strengths of these two cloud pioneers and innovators,” added Michaud.

AME has already begun to use many of the Box.com functionalities within Acumatica’s built-in business wikis to preview, access, and share work constructions, ISO 9001 documentations, standard operating procedures, swim-lane flowcharts, and even training materials, in a secure, rights-managed manner.

Pavain, President, MaxQ Technologies. “Acumatica allows us to offer our customers a choice in how they deploy their ERP applications: on-premise, private, or public cloud environments. Couple that with the best business application UI that we’ve seen in a cloud-based software product. We’ve already started to convert our own extensive portfolio of applications over to Acumatica, and we’re excited about the future!” added Pavain.

Red herring

BETHESDA, Md., December 12, 2011 - Acumatica, a provider of Cloud ERP software, today announced it was recognized as a top 100 Global Tech company by Red Herring. The honor distinguishes Acumatica among thousands of applicants and places it in elite company. Red Herring editors were among the first to recognize that companies such as Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yahoo, Skype, Salesforce.com, YouTube, and eBay would change the way we live and work.

“Choosing the best out of the previous two years was by no means a small feat,” said Alex Vieux, Chairman of Red Herring. “After rigorous contemplation and discussion, we narrowed down our list from 1,100 potential companies to 100 winners. It was an extremely difficult process. Acumatica should be extremely proud of its achievement, the competition for the Top 100 was fierce. The Top 100 Global are truly the best of the best.”

Red Herring’s editorial staff evaluated Acumatica on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, technology innovation, management quality, strategy, and market penetration. This assessment of potential is complemented by a review of the track record and standing of company relative to their sector peers, allowing Red Herring to see past the “buzz” and make the list a valuable instrument of discovery and advocacy for the most innovative new business models in North America.

“Red Herring’s Global 100 list has become a mark of distinction for identifying promising companies and entrepreneurs,” said Ezequiel Steiner, CEO at Acumatica. “Our Cloud ERP software has revolutionized the way mid-sized businesses manage their operations by allowing them to act on real-time data. Unlike early cloud solutions, Acumatica allows customers to run their software on-premise, hosted, or as a managed service (SaaS).”
