Acumatica’s ERP has just earned PCMag Editors’ Choice Award for Best ERP Software – something to consider as you seek to simplify your complex cloud ERP business requirements.
If you caught the first post in our new series about Acumatica’s award-winning year, you read about our receiving PCMag 2017 Editors’ Choice for Best ERP Software, Best Inventory Management Software, Best Enterprise-Class General Ledger Accounting Software, and the Best Business Mobile Apps Awards. These acknowledgements of our cloud ERP offering is an honor and one not to be taken lightly.
Today’s post features our Best ERP Software win, focusing on why PCMag rated Acumatica’s ERP applications “excellent” and why it’s important for CIOs and application leaders to have this information as they face the daunting but important task of picking the best cloud ERP system for their business.
Why PCMag rates Acumatica’s Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software as the best
PCMag’s Best ERP Software of 2017 review – which you can read in full here – notes that Acumatica is a “solid choice for enterprise-scale accounting, ERP, and inventory management.”
As the true cloud ERP system, we provide small to mid-sized businesses (SMBs) the most effective solution to manage their entire business through a full suite of integrated business management applications: Customer Management, Project Accounting, and Distribution Management to Manufacturing Management, Field Service, and Commerce Edition. We promise an adaptable, mobile, and complete, real-time view of your business utilizing a unique user-licensing model.
PCMag’s in-depth look at the differing software suites began with the financial side, focusing on the general ledger and “overall usability, navigation, and workflow.” This garnered another excellent rating for our general ledger accounting software, which we’ll cover in an upcoming post.
The editors then reviewed the overall ERP functionality and the breadth of modules available to support financial management needs. Here’s a look at some of the categories they used to rate the vendors and to choose the best ERP software:
- Document Management
- Expense Reporting/Management
- LIFO (Last in First Out)
- FIFO (First in First Out)
- Fixed Assets
- Sales & Use Taxes
- Customer Relationship Management (CRM)
- Project Management (PM)
- Supply Chain Management (SCM)
- Distribution Vertical
- Warehousing Vertical
