Traditions—the customs, beliefs, or patterns that are passed down through the years— often invoke personal fond memories in familiar routines and shape the processes that define an organizational culture. At Acumatica, we have a tradition that reflects our strong sense of community and the priority we place on recognizing those whose actions demonstrate strong alignment to our core principles. Acumatica’s 2024 MVPs stand apart and exemplify what it means to help each other.
To be clear, every member of the Community is valuable, but the most valuable professionals (MVPs) are those customers, partners, and developers who take the extra step, often without expectation of recognition or reward, that demonstrate personal growth and benefit their colleagues, their company, and the broader Community. For example, when they have an opportunity to expand their cloud ERP knowledge, they take it. When a peer has a question, they answer it. And when asked for feedback on how to continue innovating our award-winning cloud ERP solution, they give it. To quote an old adage, a rising tide lifts all boats, and this year’s winners exemplify that.
Through their actions, these individuals live out Acumatica’s Rallying Cry: “Building the Future of Business, Together”. They personify teamwork within our growing ecosystem—an ecosystem that strikes balance through the symbiotic relationships nurtured by this year’s MVPs. This commitment to building a cohesive team and leveraging each other’s strengths allows every member to benefit from technology—a technology that empowers all of us to overcome today’s challenges and grow each of our businesses on our own terms.
So, after receiving hundreds of peer—as well as self—nominations via our Acumatica MVP Program, today is the day that I get to reveal and congratulate this year’s Acumatica MVPs.
