NVS is now operating solely on Acumatica. The veterinary-specific system that had been used primarily as a CRM system to keep track of owners, their pets, and pet histories, was now all integrated into one system along with the accounting and inventory.
Before Acumatica, sales people would write up orders and fax them in to the office. Now, thanks to Acumatica’s web-based solution, orders are automated giving NVS real-time visibility of all inventory regardless of location.
Jacobson adds, “There have been several unexpected benefits of implementing Acumatica, too. With our sister companies also on Acumatica, the intercompany transaction process that was set up by Mindover Software saves me a tremendous amount of time in manual data entry and bookkeeping work.”
“Also, since Acumatica is hosted by an off-site server and is ‘in the cloud’, we don’t have to maintain a server at an office. This also means that any of our staff can log into the system from anywhere they have internet access using a phone, tablet, or computer. We are still learning the system, but it has many more reports and different ways of looking at things than our old system did. We can trace a product from receipt to the time that it sells and have all the documentation to go with it. We are planning on implementing barcode scanners within the next year, which should increase accuracy even more.”
