Kirkland, WA, August 15, 2013 — Acumatica, the world’s fastest-growing provider of cloud-based ERP solutions to small and medium-sized companies (SMBs), was named the winner of a Silver Stevie Award in The 10th Annual International Business Awards.
Acumatica was recognized for taking “financial management for SMBs to the next level” in the Best New Product or Service of the Year Software – New Version category.
The International Business Awards are the world’s premier business awards program. All individuals and organizations worldwide – public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small — are eligible to submit nominations. The 2013 IBAs received entries from more than 50 nations and territories.
Nicknamed the Stevies for the Greek word for “crowned,” the awards will be presented to winners at a gala awards banquet at the W Hotel in Barcelona, Spain, on October 14.
“We are truly honored to win this award,” said Yury Larichev, Acumatica’s CEO. “When we set out to design Acumatica, our goal was to provide SMBs with capabilities that lead the industry in terms of usability and functionality. It is gratifying that the judges at the International Business Awards, given their vast experience evaluating products within our niche, have singled us out for this special recognition.”
More than 250 industry experts around the world selected the winners from some 3,300 nominations that were received from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry.
“The 2013 International Business Awards are noteworthy for featuring the best collection of entries we have ever received,” said Michael Gallagher, president and founder of the Stevie Awards. “The judges have been unanimous in their comments about the quality of achievements, and the expertise with which they were portrayed, in the nominations we received this year. We extend our most heartfelt congratulations to all of this year’s Gold, Silver and Bronze Stevie Award winners.”
Acumatica 4.1 will make its official debut just days from now, when Acumatica’s worldwide partners gather for the company’s annual Partner Summit that kicks off August 19 in Leesburg, VA. This year’s number of partner attendees at the summit has exceeded management expectations.

“The Stevie Award demonstrates that we’re on the right track as we continue to improve our products with the goal of becoming the industry standard in Cloud ERP,” Larichev said.
