Acumatica 2017 R2 Roadshow Events Recap

Kathy Visser-May | October 25, 2017

It wasn’t that long ago we were anticipating the release of Acumatica 2017 R2 and sharing news about it all around the country via our Roadshow events. They highlighted our latest product advances and provided the Acumatica community a first-hand peek. Now, the anticipation has turned into reality and our latest release is live!

We just wrapped up the final Acumatica 2017 R2 Roadshow event, and based on the feedback we’ve received from customer and partners, they were a resounding success!  Traveling around the country and visiting with customers, partners, and analysts was a great way to spend quality, focused time on the many ways our latest release will increase productivity and growth for mid-sized businesses. It was also an informative introduction to Acumatica cloud ERP for those interested in becoming an Acumatica customer or VAR.

Before I fill you in on what happened at these events, here’s a variety of on-demand video of our Acumatica 2017 R2 Launch Day Event in Boston that I hope you’ll watch. Our filled- to- capacity, half-day event was the best unveiling our new product could have had!
