ERP Growth Creates Exciting Opportunities for Experienced Technology Consultants and System Integrators

The global ERP software market is growing rapidly—providing a golden opportunity for small and midsized business to move their processes to the cloud; to shed constricting, basic, and outdated systems; and to spur success with modern business management solutions.  Writing for Forbes in a two-part article series, analyst Robert Kramer describes the growth of the ERP market in detail.

  • “The ERP market was valued at $63.33 billion in 2022 and is projected to reach $187.79 billion by 2023, with a CAGR of 14.8%….”
  • “The ERP market is shifting towards cloud-based solutions,” especially for businesses with remote employees, global operations, and multiple locations.
  • “The value of the cloud-based ERP market is projected to grow from $49.80 billion in 2023 to $140.14 billion by 2030, representing a CAGR of 15.9% during this period—with 80% of new implementations being cloud-based.”

Against this backdrop of an expanding and dynamically evolving global ERP market, Acumatica has been the world’s fastest-growing ERP company for the past eight years. And, as CEO John Case said at Acumatica Summit 2024, “We are just getting started. There’s still so much to do. I think we’ll look back at this time and say this is the beginning of the next era—the new era—for Acumatica.”

As this new era dawns, Acumatica is seeing growing demand and expanding business opportunities.  A vital aspect of meeting this demand and ensuring new customers have a positive transition to a modern ERP system, is to take the Acumatica implementation process to the next level.

The Acumatica Master Implementers Program

Knowing how critical the ERP implementation process is to a company’s level of comfort with and use of the software, Acumatica has created an exciting new program that will tap into the expertise of experienced ERP consultants.

We have established the Acumatica Master Implementers Program so that experienced ERP consultants can easily access and work in our rapidly evolving ERP ecosystem—so they can seize amazing opportunities for new projects with established reseller partners, accelerate their career growth, and spur new possibilities.

To help consultants jumpstart this process with direct, hands-on learning, later this month we will be hosting a training workshop (more information below).

The Importance of Successful Implementations to Customer Satisfaction

Historically, ERP implementations were characterized as long, arduous, painful processes. Like a bitter pill, they were things companies (usually larger enterprises)  needed but would rather avoid.

Acumatica was instrumental in ushering in a movement that democratized ERP systems—making their critical, business enhancing features available and easily accessible to small and midsized companies. Now, ERP implementations are measured in weeks to months instead of months to years—taking the pain out of the process and replacing it with streamlined, focused advancement.

Still, as with all customer touchpoints, it is very important to start every implementation off on the right foot. Customer satisfaction is intrinsically linked to the implementation’s success and timeliness. And that requires the critical human factor of having the right consultants at the helm.

The Advantages of the Acumatica Ecosystem

So, why would experienced ERP consultants want to join the Master Implementers Program and work in the Acumatica ecosystem? Here are four main reasons.

Market Opportunities: Acumatica’s opportunities in the ERP market are constantly increasing since it is the fastest-growing ERP company in the world. Looking for a remote job? You will find many opportunities as the cloud permits remote implementations.

The Product: Built on the latest  technology and open system architecture, Acumatica is easy to customize and integrate with third-party applications. Acumatica is also committed to one product and all modules (e.g., CRM, Field Services, Payroll) are part of the same system. This simplifies implementations minimizing complexity and issues during/after projects.

Customer Satisfaction: With the top net promoter score, Acumatica has the industry’s highest level of customer satisfaction. With customers loving the product, ERP consultants  can focus on their  job, a successful implementation, instead of fixing buggy products.

The Partner Channel & Program:

  • With 600+ partners, and growing every year, the channel offers plenty of opportunities to grow and learn.
  • The Acumatica ecosystem is composed of the best in the ERP SMB industry, including 27 Acumatica Value-Added Resellers from Bob Scott’s 2024 list of VAR stars.
  • The partner program has been recognized for its excellence, winning 7 years in a row the 5-Star Award from CRN. Consultants will gain access to exclusive training and programs to facilitate your transition to the Acumatica channel.

Program Optimized for Accelerated, Effective Learning

With this new program, experienced ERP consultants can become Senior Acumatica Consultants in three months or less. How? We’re taking the hassle out of learning about and moving to a new ERP ecosystem.

As part of the Master Implementers Program, consultants will learn directly from Acumatica experts, who will show them real-world applications and best practices. It will be a learning experience designed to quickly and effectively teach them methods for best serving Acumatica’s customers.

Training Workshop

To kick off the Master Implementer’s Program, Acumatica will be hosting a series of in-person courses, directed by industry-leading Acumatica consultants. These experts will share the latest best practices through demonstrations, guided hands-on activities, and independent activities—building complexity through each learning milestone. The first of these workshops will take place from April 22–25 in Westerville, Ohio.

At the conclusion of this four-day course, attendees will be able to provide consulting services for customer implementations for:

  • Construction
  • Manufacturing
  • Retail
  • GI/Reporting and Business Events

Words from Our Partners and Consultants

The entire Acumatica ecosystem understands, values, and appreciates the importance of experienced implementation consultants and the impact they have on our mutual customers.  Here is what they had to say:   “The uniqueness of Acumatica is the way it’s structured on the Cloud, and the framework that allows you to customize anything easily. As long as you know basic .NET technology and the Acumatica objects, you can do whatever is needed for the customer.” – Hector Negron, Managing Director, Optimus Business Transformation

“Our criteria for choosing Acumatica were a desire for a flexible deployment platform (SaaS model, or on-premises, or private cloud), open APIs, and ability to develop code very quickly. It can be time-consuming building custom applications through APIs and file feeds to integrate with other software, but, with Acumatica’s framework, these tasks can be done in a fraction of the time. Acumatica is very quick to develop software, and they do it right the first time. It is absolutely leading edge.” – Jeff Mayer, President, Mayer Group

Seize the Opportunities

By joining the Acumatica Master Implementers Program, ERP consultants can make an impact – and have the opportunity to step into an exciting ecosystem and a supportive Community that will put their interests and success first. They have the opportunity to reap the benefits of Acumatica’s new era of growth.

There’s no time like the present to seize these chances and grow with Acumatica.
