Kirkland, WA, March 6, 2013– Acumatica, a leading global provider of cloud Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and financial software, today announced a new product integration with Box to simplify cloud collaboration and file sharing for small to medium sized businesses. Developed and offered by SiPD Services, a prominent cloud-based ERP integrator and distributor in Canada, the new integration toolkit is now available for Acumatica’s cloud ERP suite, Acumatica 4.0.
With single sign-on and Active Directory functionality, Acumatica users can gain full access to their Box accounts from within the Acumatica environment, ensuring that changes made to files on one platform are immediately synced on the other. As a result, users can spend most of their time in Acumatica, while still getting the benefits of Box in a seamless, integrated experience.
SiPD announced the availability of the Box integration during the Spring Training Summit events surrounding the release of Acumatica 4.0, the broadest, most extensive cloud ERP product release in the company’s history.
“There’s a smarter, more efficient way to manage your files, and features such as secure content sharing, mobile access and version tracking really make sense for cloud ERP users,” said Pierre Dussault, President at Services SiPD. “Acumatica and Box were designed from the get-go with businesses in mind. Integrating both platforms is a match made in heaven!”
“Integration between Acumatica and Box.com allows me to move my entire business to the cloud,” said Ehren Dimitry, President of AME Corporation and an Acumatica 4.0 customer. “Using the cloud, we save money on infrastructure and give everybody controlled access to process flows, inventory, sales orders, shared files, and more. The cloud has become a real advantage for us in the marketplace, and Acumatica 4.0 will help us leverage that advantage even more.”
“We have a vibrant and innovative partner ecosystem built around Acumatica,” said Christian Lindberg, VP Partner Solutions. “Developing applications for Acumatica 4.0 allows our partners to access our latest technologies and deliver true competitive advantage to their customers. We congratulate SiPD with bringing their innovative Box App to the marketplace.”
SiPD uses Acumatica Studio, the technology development platform, which is unique in the cloud ERP marketplace, as it enables ISVs and OEMs competitive advantage and fast time-to-market for developing and integrating cloud-based apps using industry standard tools.
SiPD’s Box Integration for Acumatica 4.0 is available today for Acumatica’s channel partners (ISVs, VARs, OEMs) for their SMB customers. Visit Box Apps Marketplace for additional information about the SiPD/Acumatica app.
