Significant Differentiators between Acumatica and Everest
True Cloud: “True cloud” means all functionality is accessible through the internet using a standard browser without the need for additional software installation on the user’s device or additional software licensing. Acumatica can be deployed on premises or in the cloud without additional equipment or software. Everest requires a Windows client on every workstation.
True mobility: Out-of-the-box, the entire Acumatica suite can be accessed on the device of your choice. Acumatica is built to resize every page and every screen to whatever device you are using. Every screen has the same information and flow, whether it is on a PC, tablet, or phone. Everest does not support true mobile friendly screens and does not support mobile access.
Built using modern technology: Acumatica was built for the cloud using modern Microsoft and web technologies. Everest leverages older computer architectures and software languages from the 1990s.
Modern APIs for integration: Leveraging modern cloud technologies enables Acumatica to support current APIs for easier integration with other cloud applications. Everest is unable to support modern cloud APIs, such as REST APIs.
Customizations using industry standard tools: Acumatica is highly configurable using industry standard C# and .NET. Everest can be modified with C# and .NET, but users are limited in what they can customize in the product.
Flexible licensing options: Every company is different, and some prefer a depreciable capital expense versus an ongoing operating expense. Both products are available through subscription licensing, but Acumatica also offers perpetual licensing. Check Acumatica ERP Pricing.
Multiple deployment options (cloud, on premise, hybrid): Deployment options include public cloud (like Amazon Web Services), on your premise, and hybrid configurations (private cloud). While both products are available on premises and hybrid, Acumatica also supports true cloud deployments.
TCO: Acumatica offers consumption-based pricing and more support and deployment options, greatly reducing the TCO for Acumatica vs Everest.
Launched in 1994, Everest is a full-function ERP with an integrated CRM and support for eCommerce. Everest, an aging system, is unable to stay current on today’s modern web-enabled technology. Everest uses older client-server architecture and requires a client installed on every workstation accessing the system. Everest software was built using Delphi and DCOM technology and offers no REST APIs or mobile solution.
Conversely, Acumatica was designed from the start to be accessible both through the cloud and on premises using current technology. We offer access to your data anytime, flexible licensing options, and no cost for adding users, lowering your company’s TCO.
We encourage you to know your needs and to ask the hard questions when considering the purchase of any ERP system, not just ours. We believe Acumatica provides the best price/value, performance, functionality, and ease of use of any ERP product available for small- and medium-sized businesses.
