McLean, VA, November 21, 2012 – Acumatica, a leading global provider of cloud enterprise resource planning (ERP) and financial software announced the launch of Acumatica in Mexico on November 15, at Piso 51, an exclusive club located on the 52nd floor in one of the highest skyscrapers in downtown Mexico City.
“Acumatica came to Mexico to revolutionize the ERP market, meeting the needs of Mexican companies that have prevented them from taking advantage of cloud services,” said Federico Porras, Country Manager, for Acumatica Mexico. “Acumatica enables small and midsized businesses access to a world-class ERP solution, technologically superior to other alternatives, while being flexible, friendly, and very affordable. Licensing is also flexible with Acumatica, since businesses don’t have to pay for additional users. This allows businesses to give access to Acumatica for their employees, customers, and suppliers through specialized portals included in the solution, added Porras.
“While November 15 was the official launch event, we’ve been diligently getting Acumatica ready for Mexico. During this time, we prepared and certified the channel, localized the software, added electronic invoicing capabilities, and implemented Acumatica with several customers in Mexico,” said Porras.
Over 200 people attended the launch event, including 190 prospective business users, and 14 prospective value-added resellers (VARs). Acumatica’s certified channel partners also attended the event, to meet with prospects and provide laptop demonstrations of the software to interested attendees.
“The launch event was a great success for Acumatica Mexico,” said Stijn Hendrikse, Chief Marketing Officer for Acumatica”. “Before the event started, the Acumatica Mexico team, comprised of Nicolas Hauff, Federico Porras, Fernando Gonzalez, and Luis Pingarron, as well as Sean Chatterjee and myself from Acumatica USA, met with 9 journalists representing their respective media firms for an extensive press conference. Members of the press community that covered the event included: CIO Magazine, Mundo TI, Diario TI, BOLETIN DE LA COMPUTACIÓN, AMITI, NETMEDIA, BBVA – Pyme Bancomer, and EL Financiero.”
