Right now, we’re all trying to comprehend the enormous impact COVID-19 is having—and will have—on our personal and professional lives. It’s an unprecedented time, but the Acumatica team is committed to providing Acumatica customers with the business continuity they need to weather this storm.
Todd Inslee, Corporate Counsel, Acumatica, reassures Acumatica customers and partners of this in a recent post on the COVID-19 outbreak. “As a global technology company, Acumatica maintains disaster recovery and business continuity plans for a wide range of situations. We are committed to providing system uptime and business continuity to our partners and customers while at the same time protecting employee health and safety.”
5 Acumatica customers experiencing business continuity with Acumatica cloud ERP
This situation is confirming that Acumatica’s cloud ERP platform is a stable foundation for SMBs even in the midst of difficult, uncertain times. Businesses relying on legacy ERPs or other cloud ERP solutions may experience disruption, but Acumatica customers can expect the same business continuity they’ve experienced from the minute they implemented our highly rated, award-winning cloud ERP software.
Here are five examples of how customers are keeping business operations running smoothly with the help of Acumatica cloud ERP.
1. Tayse Rugs
Tayse Rugs is a family-run company that imports and wholesales machine-made rugs. Business Development Manager Taylan Sevimli chose Acumatica after over a year of researching his options, citing easy customizations and integrations, access to Acumatica’s APIs, unlimited user licensing model, continuous upgrades, and a strong developer community.
They’ve not only gained a new competitive edge, they’ve also given their employees mobile capabilities. The company’s customer success story explains, “Using Acumatica’s SaaS Cloud version allows Tayse Rugs employees to work from anywhere in the world.”
With today’s work and travel restrictions, Tayse’s executive team and employees can continue to access their data and run their business from anywhere, at any time.
2. C&O Nursery
C&O Nursery, an over 100-year-old company that sells superior fruit trees to orchard growers and individual consumers, had been using legacy Microsoft Dynamics products to handle their accounting, payroll, and inventory processes. The disconnected systems proved challenging to meet their specific agriculture-and-farming needs, so they turned to Acumatica cloud ERP.
In addition to being able to track inventory in one system (in real time), manage agriculture pay requirements, and track field service employees, the nursery could access information at all times from any location—a necessary advantage in today’s marketplace.
“Before, if we were out in the field and a grower said, ‘By the way, do we have XYZ variety?’, we would call into the office. Now that we’re cloud based, we can actually log in, look at our inventory, and answer that person within about three minutes with an accurate answer,” says CEO and President Todd Snyder in the company’s customer success story.
3. Security Solutions
Security Solutions is another company that has been in business for 100 years that has chosen Acumatica’s cloud-based ERP solution to aid them in becoming a modern, connected business. Their reasons for choosing Acumatica include the fact that Acumatica offers a single, connected cloud-based ERP solution; it’s customizable and configurable; it offers the financial, contract, and process controls they required; and very importantly, it offers remote access.
Owner and GM Jamie Vos says in the company’s customer success story, “We searched for a provider that was built for the cloud and selected Acumatica TRUE Cloud ERP. Now we can be seamless by using CRM and the Mobile App, all departments in Security Solutions—locksmith, retail, service, sales, inspections, testing—have instant access to information, helping to speed business and lets us focus on what we do best, which is to design, implement, execute security solutions that provide peace of mind.”
They are not restricted from running their business or protecting their customers during times of crisis because they can confidently rely on Acumatica to keep them up and running.
4. Firewire Surfboards
Firewire Surfboards, an eco-friendly surfboard maker, has distribution operations in the U.S., Europe, and Australia and manufacturing operations in Thailand. Their legacy ERP couldn’t keep up with their growing and complex operations, which included 6 operating entities. They needed a flexible, scalable solution and chose Acumatica to help them “shred” the industry.
“We have a lot more real-time visibility into what other entities are doing, which allows me to be more effective and keep better tabs on what’s going on and helps us make more strategic financial decisions,” says CFO Franklin Shiraki in the company’s customer success story.
And Franklin and his team can work from anywhere to ensure their business continuity.
5. Power Storage Solutions
Power Storage Solutions, which spun off its operations from Interstate Battery in 2018, offers DC-powered backup systems for Data Centers, Telecommunications, Utilities, and Petrochemical companies as well as installing and servicing their power solutions. Unfortunately, they had six different operating systems that didn’t communicate.
Acumatica’s comprehensive and integrated cloud ERP solution solved that problem and transformed their business. VP of Operations and Co-Owner Derrick Elledge says in the company’s customer success story that they were “shocked” to find an all-in-one operating system that was accessible anytime, anywhere.
He also says, “We at Power Storage Solutions like Acumatica…for its mobility. One of the biggest complaints (about our previous software) was when traveling, we couldn’t get behind the VPN. With Acumatica, the mobility solution allows anyone to get on from anywhere.”
