Acumatica 2017 R1 - Enhancements to the Acumatica Platform (formerly known as Acumatica 6.1)

In February 2017, Acumatica announced Acumatica 2017 R1 Release with several major enhancements to the Acumatica platform.

Flexible User Interface (UI)

Users may choose a simplified interface with better drilldown from dashboard widgets.

Multi-Cloud Integration

Acumatica integrates with the open source app repository on to give you easy access to services such as and Survey Monkey.

Expanded Mobile Functionality

Acumatica has long been known for its superior mobile functionality. Users on the go can now use parameters to create custom reports, and then download PDF report files to their devices.

Expanded Support Options

Although most customers work with Acumatica partners to implement Acumatica ERP, some customers have asked for direct access to Acumatica technical resources. These customers have previously been able to meet their needs through Customer Premier support. To give you another option, we’ve launched Standard Support—a new level of support that offers chat support, online incident management, and 8-to-5 coverage with a next-day Service Level Agreement (SLA). Standard Support is free for the first year of a customer’s implementation.
