Why Top Analysts Call Acumatica Cloud ERP an Industry Leader

Todd Wells | October 6, 2020

Why are ERP analysts naming Acumatica cloud ERP a Leader quarter-after-quarter and year-after-year? We’ll share our secret.


Analysts, whatever their specialty, amass and analyze data before offering their research-based recommendations. When they speak, people listen, which is why we are excited to share the fact that top ERP analysts are calling Acumatica cloud ERP an ERP Leader…over and over again.

Why analysts call Acumatica cloud ERP a Leader

Technology analysts, like IDC, Nucleus Research, InfoTech Research Group, and G2, have specific qualities they look for in ERP Leaders. Let’s see what these top ERP analysts consider leadership qualities and why Acumatica exemplifies them all.


International Data Corporation, or IDC as it’s commonly referred to, is the premier global provider of market intelligence, advisory services, and events for the information technology, telecommunications, and consumer technology markets. They recently released their IDC MarketScape: Worldwide SaaS and Cloud-Enabled Medium-Sized/Midmarket Business ERP Applications 2020 Vendor Assessment report, and in it  IDC places ERP vendors on their IDC MarketScape graph based on the vendor’s capabilities and strategies. Of the 23 vendors assessed, Acumatica was named a Leader by IDC analysts based on our Innovation, Industry Focus, and Sophistication.

“After a thorough evaluation of Acumatica’s strategies and capabilities, IDC has positioned the company in the Leaders category,” the IDC analysts write. “Consider Acumatica when you are looking for a straightforward and adaptable ERP application that can be configured to fit your business.”

IDC also released their IDC MarketScape: Worldwide SaaS and Cloud-Enabled Midmarket Finance and Accounting Applications 2020 Vendor Assessment report. Acumatica was again placed in the Leader bracket.

The analysts note, “Acumatica has continued its investment in machine learning, natural language processing, and mobile technology, which allows customers access to these technologies for supporting financial workflows.”

Nucleus Research

Nucleus Research has been a global provider of ROI-focused technology research and advisory services since 2000. Their case studies, insights, and facts help their clients “understand the real value of technology and make the right business decisions.”

Their 2020 ERP Technology Value Matrix report rated 23 ERP vendors on their usability, functionality, and potential ROI. For the fifth year in a row, Acumatica was named a Leader as well as the cloud ERP solution with the Highest Usability (usability should be a priority when evaluating your ERP options).

The Nucleus Research analysts see Acumatica’s ERP usability as a differentiator and notes that our cloud ERP software can scale with complex, high-volume data processing; onboard new users quickly; offer efficient collaboration across departments and locations; and provide flexibility to users.

The analysts expect “Acumatica to continue building upon its recent successes and improving its position in future editions of the Value Matrix.”


G2 is a leading business solution review platform that bases its ratings on reviews by over one million (and counting) actual users, including buyers, sellers, investors, and analysts. Acumatica was named a Leader in their two most recent ERP reports.

The G2 Grid® Report for ERP Systems report takes 51 ERP systems and places them in a four-quadrant grid with Niche, Contender, High Performer, and Leader designations. According to the G2 analysts, “Acumatica has been named a Leader based on receiving a high customer Satisfaction score and having a large Market Presence. 92% of users rated it 4 or 5 stars, 91% believe it’s headed in the right direction, and users said they would be likely to recommend Acumatica at a rate of 87%.”

In their Mid-Market Grid® Report for ERP Systems report, G2 narrows their scope to 31 mid-market ERP options. For the sixth quarter in a row, Acumatica was named a Leader, which G2 says is due to being “rated highly by G2 users” and having “substantial Market Presence scores.”


SoftwareReviews, a division of InfoTech Research Group, named Acumatica a Champion in their latest ERP Emotional Footprint report, which uncovers how real software buyers feel about their purchase. Out of 18 vendors profiled, Acumatica was the only mid-market option and was rated as one of the four most popular by 960 customer reviews.

The reviewers were asked 25 questions about the value they were deriving from each solution and how each vendor rated in fairness, honesty, transparency, and generosity. As the Emotional Footprint report notes, “Each product is compared and contrasted with all other vendors in their category to create a holistic, unbiased view of the product landscape.”
