Kathy Visser-May | July 12, 2017

Acumatica achieves recognition in Gartner’s first-ever Magic Quadrant focused on cloud ERP vendors and financial suites. This acknowledgement of our Financial Management system shows that our commitment to meeting our customers’ needs by offering a premium product is working. Choosing the correct ERP software means the difference between your organization moving forward or falling behind in your industry.

We are thrilled to share another milestone at Acumatica. We have been named a Visionary in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Cloud Core Financial Management Suites for Midsize, Large and Global Enterprises, their first-ever Magic Quadrant focused on cloud ERPs and financial suites. This recognition as a market visionary by Gartner – a leading information technology research and advisory company – gives us even more incentive to continue our goal of making our advanced, flexible, and mobile cloud ERP system the best ERP software for you and your company – both now and in the future.

Gartner Positions Acumatica Cloud ERP as Visionary in Magic Quadrant for Cloud Core Financial Suites

Gartner’s full Magic Quadrant report – a reference for application leaders looking to move their core finance processes to the cloud. It details out why the analysts chose the 11 vendors and how they categorized those vendors as Niche Players, Visionaries, Challengers, or Leaders based on their Ability to Execute and Completeness of Vision.

Focus of the Magic Quadrant

Gartner’s Magic Quadrant ranks each vendor on the core financial management suites they offer – all of which must be cloud-based, independent offerings. Gartner focused on the suites’ capabilities as well as the vendors’ capacity to market, sell, and support their solutions to finance organizations located in their region as well as internationally and globally.

The analysts looked at the vendors’ Ability to Execute and their Completeness of Vision. Assessing these qualities required in-depth research, which included customer feedback. For the Ability to Execute, they evaluated product and service to marketing execution and customer experience. For Completeness of Vision, Gartner placed value on the vendors’ ability to define their understanding of the current market trends as well as what they anticipate the market will do in the future.

Being included in the report underscores our commitment to deliver an all-encompassing ERP system that anticipates market changes and customer needs.

Why Acumatica achieved Visionary status

Jon Roskill, CEO of Acumatica, said this in the press release regarding the nod from Gartner, “We are justifiably proud of this Acumatica team accomplishment, but more importantly, we feel it’s a real validation of the success we are seeing in the marketplace.”

Acumatica’s focus on the cloud (or as we like to call it, the multicloud world) secured us a spot in the Magic Quadrant. Along with this focus, Gartner noted our xRP platform’s flexibility and the functionality of our Financial Management Suite for midsize companies.

Gartner also pointed out other Acumatica strengths leading to the Visionary placement:

  • Strong focus on midsize companies
  • Well-suited partner strategy
  • Ability to serve multiple industries and geographies
  • Customer satisfaction with ease-of-use and speed of implementation

“We continue to generate strong momentum as customers in a wide range of industries evaluate and purchase our products and solutions,” Roskill states.
