Challenges

IMG Entrprises needed:

  • A more out-of-the-box system for ERP
  • To reduce the number of ERP-related programs they were using
  • To move the IT systems “off-site, into the hands of people who are experts in their field.”

A year ago, Lieffort says, they made a decision: “We really needed to get a more out-of-the-box system for ERP; we couldn’t move forward; we were stuck.” They also wanted to move the IT systems “off-site, into the hands of people who are experts in their field.” Hosting off-site was also a benefit in case of potential disaster, Lieffort says. “We are located in Florida where lightning and hurricanes are prevalent—so disaster recovery is definitely an issue.”

Lieffort reports they researched Acumatica and other options: “We looked at pretty much everything that was out there—what we really liked about Acumatica was that it was web-based.”

He adds, “We felt like if we had a web-based system, we could really improve the processes in our organizations. We could bring the system to the people, and that was going to be a huge advantage for us in a lot of different ways because of the size of our operation here.”

Outcome

IMG Enterprises has used 14 different programs in conjunction with SL, paying for maintenance on all of them. With Acumatica, Lieffort expects to go from 14 down to 4.

They had another reason for choosing Acumatica, Lieffort says, “We’ve always been on the cutting edge of automation and technology for our industries—we actually have robots on the farm that move trees automatically. Acumatica appears to be aligned with the innovative, forward-thinking culture that we have here in our companies.”

Acumatica will save IMG Enterprises time and money, Lieffort says: “From being able to enter orders and production information directly in the field, to minimizing travel time, saving on vehicles, saving on fuel, there’s a lot of things Acumatica will make a big difference with.”
