Acumatica Cloud ERP Sets the Standard for Usability, Says Nucleus Research

Todd Wells | October 2, 2019

Every year, Nucleus Research assesses cloud ERP vendors, rating their ability to deliver product Usability and Functionality. We’re excited to share Acumatica’s 2019 status.

In their ERP Technology Value Matrix 2019, Nucleus Research discusses the value cloud ERP vendors have delivered to their customers since the last Value Matrix was released. Current and prospective Acumatica customers will be pleased to learn that Acumatica’s position as Leader and as the vendor with the highest Usability holds firm for the fourth year in a row.

Acumatica cloud ERP continues to deliver out-of-the-box value

In the free report, analysts Seth Lippincott and Andrew MacMillen write that Acumatica is “setting the standard for usability in the market.” This is especially gratifying considering the established cloud ERP vendors with whom we compete, including Oracle NetSuite, SAP, and Microsoft.

Nucleus’ Value Matrix highlights the differences between 22 leading vendors, placing each one within four quadrants (Core Provider, Expert, Facilitator, or Leader) based on the Usability and Functionality of their respective products. For this report, Functionality is represented by the number—and expansion of—the verticals an ERP vendor provides as well as the depth of their current verticals, and Usability is represented by mobility, flexibility, and user adoption.

The analysts note that vendors who are “natively built for the cloud and delivered as software-as-a-service (SaaS)” are the ones who are coming out ahead. Even so, they say that customers aren’t yet able to take advantage of the many cloud services and advanced capabilities due to the challenge of digitizing their data/processes and extricating themselves from their legacy ERP systems, resulting in less value gleaned. Additionally, many vendors have “made large promises to their customers but have, thus far, failed to deliver.”

Acumatica isn’t one of them. We offer our customers flexible, modern cloud ERP software that is constantly being enhanced. Acumatica’s two most recent releases, Acumatica 2019 R1 and Acumatica 2019 R2, have improved upon our versatile and open cloud xRP platform, general business and industry-specific applications, and application workflows with customer and partner feedback as our guide. Our investment in—and embedding of—modern technologies within our platform for our ISV partners and our extensive support of our VARs through the Acumatica Partner Program continues unabated, providing our customers with a fully functional cloud-based ERP.

Charles Hutchinson, CFO of InSync Healthcare Solutions®, IntraCoastal Environmental (ICE), and Alegra Motorsports, supports our claim. “If you can do the accounting for a race team, an environmental cleanup company, and a software company all in the same solution—everything from contract management to project tracking—it’s easy to know that Acumatica is the right choice.”

With the benefits of an easy implementation, flexible access, a more complete out-of-the-box feature set for multi-entity businesses, unlimited user licensing, and more, Charles’ says he plans to use Acumatica to “its fullest capabilities.”

His belief in our cloud ERP software, which you can read more about in the ICE customer success story, is reflected in what other Acumatica customers told the Nucleus Research analysts: “Customers point to the flexibility and usability of the product as a central value-driver, likening the software to a box of Legos that can be configured to meet workflow needs of nearly any organization.”

The report also notes, “As it continues to aggressively expand its install-base, Acumatica is focused on ensuring that any technologies it deploys can deliver value to customers out of the box.”
