From 3 Years to 3 Days: How to Expedite Your ERP Discovery Process at Acumatica Summit 2019

Kim Plank | October 22, 2018

Deciding on an ERP system is big in terms of how much your company will benefit but also in how much time you invest in choosing the right one. The good news is that we can help you accelerate the ERP selection process at Acumatica Summit 2019, and this first post in a two-part customer series will tell you how.

You know it’s time to implement a modern ERP system. You also know that the ERP discovery process can be a long one. Add in how long ERP implementations can take, it boggles your mind—maybe to the point that you’ve stalled in making your decision. But what if we told you that you could significantly reduce that timeframe? Well, you can by attending Acumatica Summit 2019. Our premier cloud ERP event, happening January 27-February 1, 2019 in Houston, Texas, can expedite your ERP software selection process in a few different ways—and you’ll be able to have some fun while you’re at it.

From 3 Years to 3 Days: How to Expedite Your ERP Discovery Process at Acumatica Summit 2019

How Acumatica Summit 2019 can speed up your ERP software selection

ERP research is the first step in the ERP software selection process. This involves asking such questions as, what are the benefits of a modern, cloud-based ERP? What ROI can I expect? What are the initial and continuing costs? Fact-based information on the different ERP products and platforms available to you is imperative. That’s why we have a wide range of ERP software selection resources available to you, including FAQs, guides, checklists, and whitepapers to help you out.

And while the plethora of information about which ERP system is right for you (whether from us or from other sources) is helpful, it’s also a daunting amount. In addition, reading about a topic can only get you so far. This is why we’re encouraging those of you who have done your research, found Acumatica cloud ERP, and are now moving on to the second step of the process—ERP evaluation—to join us at Acumatica Summit 2019.

At our annual event, you’ll be able to see firsthand what Acumatica’s cloud ERP products and platform can do for you and your business. You’ll be able to:

  • See Acumatica cloud ERP software demonstrations in person: You aren’t a passive onlooker but an active participant in the ERP evaluation process.
  • Learn directly from Acumatica experts: As you watch the demonstrations, attend the customer breakouts, and experience the hands-on training tracks at Acumatica Summit 2019, any questions you have can be answered in real time by those who know our system the best.
  • Meet face-to-face with Acumatica VARs: Acumatica cloud ERP is sold exclusively by our VAR partners. They know our product and platform inside out and can give you insight into how they can benefit your business.
  • Meet the Acumatica leadership team: If you want to know what a company stands for, then get to know the people behind it. Our executive team makes themselves available throughout the event, whether in the learning sessions, on the floor at the Solution Showcase, or at the different entertainment options. They want to answer your questions as well as listen to your feedback.
  • Interface with other Acumatica customers: This is a big one. Acumatica Summit 2019 is the perfect time and place to speak with other customers about our cloud ERP solution and how we handle our ERP implementations. You can anticipate hearing the straight story about their experience, and we wouldn’t want it any other way.

This is what Nick Novy, Korpack President and Acumatica customer, had to say in a recent Acumatica Summit 2019 post, “You feed off the excitement and from hearing other people’s stories, how they’re using Acumatica, and how they’ve customized it. Their businesses may not apply to what we do, but it may spark an idea that could make us better.”

Acumatica Summit 2019: expedited cloud ERP learning

In the few days you spend in the breakouts, training tracks, Partner EXPO (Solution Showcase), and more, you’ll learn more than you could possibly learn in years of online and in-office research. That’s what we’ve heard from our attendees and experienced for ourselves, and we’d like you to experience that same thing by attending Acumatica Summit 2019.

Again, the time-consuming nature of ERP research, ERP evaluation, ERP selection, and finally, ERP implementations doesn’t have to stop you. The Summit provides the cloud ERP data and insight you need to make an informed decision and learn how other Acumatica customers, like The Quantum Group (who deployed in 30 days; check out their success story), quickly got up and running with their cloud ERP system. And customers such as Open Mobile.

“Implementing the Acumatica system in 90 days was a huge success, that also included migration of the data from the legacy system,” says Senior Director of Information Systems Rafael Diaz in Open Mobile’s success story.

Finally, in addition to the learning and networking that goes on at the Summit, we also make sure we have a good time. Our annual Monday night Celebration Party and visiting the many local attractions during our free time is always fun.

Stay tuned for the second post in this two-part series focused on the many benefits our customers will receive if they attend Acumatica Summit 2019 and feel free to check out our recent post on the benefits of also attending with your VAR. Until then, please contact us with any questions about our cloud ERP solution.
