Mid-sized manufacturer gains 400% productivity, creates powerful integrated system with Acumatica

AME Corporation is an ISO 9001: 2008-certified supplier that specializes in custom rubber and plastic components and sealing solutions. Its operations are currently spread across New Jersey, US, and Shanghai, China. Like many companies with a global presence, it wanted to move all its business processes to the cloud, so that any of its 20 staff from around the world could easily access information and collaborate. With Acumatica, the company had already found its ideal ERP solution in 2011. But there was one more gap to fill. AME stored a large amount of its business documents on Box, an online content sharing platform. AME staff had to access Box and Acumatica separately. That is, until Acumatica 4.0 was rolled out and the two were linked in a powerful integration. Today, this has vastly improved the way AME staff work.

Ehren Dimitry, President and CEO of AME, says: “We were incredibly excited about Acumatica 4.0, chiefly because it would enable the Acumatica-Box integration. We are talking about a single sign-on and being able to access and manage all the files we have in Box. We wanted our users to spend most of their time in Acumatica, while still getting the benefits of Box in a seamless, integrated experience.” What enables that integration is Acumatica’s improved API, which means that it is much easier to customize applications. Gabriel Michaud, co-founder of Montreal-based Acumatica partner Les Services SiPD, worked with AME to develop the Acumatica-Box integration. Michaud notes: “In Acumatica 4.0, we can create customizations which were not possible in the past. It is a very powerful tool.”


The Acumatica-Box integration means that staff can access Box files within Acumatica, and vice versa. Any changes made on one platform are reflected on the other. Previously, product test results were tracked manually using documents and spreadsheets. Now, the improvements in this area alone allow AME staff to do their work four times faster than before, says Dimitry. As a whole, Acumatica 4.0 is also noticeably faster and easier to use. Screens open three times faster and the time taken to navigate between records is halved. “Previously, time was spent navigating to specific screens,” says Dimitry. “In Acumatica 4.0, the user interface is much more intuitive, better designed, and just much faster.” “Acumatica is the backbone of our cloud environment. It has already changed the way we do things, improving efficiency, and there are endless opportunities for even more process improvements and productivity gains. As we do so, it will clearly strengthen our company in the long run.”
