ERP Solution

ERP Solution

Pool Source investigated several solutions including both software as a service (SaaS) and traditional solutions. The idea of purchasing a solution that required no client software, on-premise software, or ongoing maintenance expenses was compelling so Pool Source decided to head in this direction.

Both Acumatica and NetSuite offered SaaS solutions, but only Acumatica offered a growth-friendly pricing structure with unlimited users as well as local support for understanding requirements, implementation, and support.

Outcome

Outcome

Acumatica’s distribution capabilities can be customized for specific verticals. In the case of Pool Source, Acumatica implemented special search capabilities, utilized advanced pricing features, imported thousands of inventory items, and delivered two different processes for different types of sales.

Several inventory items have similar qualities, so Acumatica customized the inventory search capability to meet the needs of somebody who wanted to narrow the list of items in a lookup table.

Like many wholesale distributors, Pool Source has different prices for different customer accounts. Some customers have large volumes and pick up supplies on their own while others need supplies for a specific job delivered to a job site. Using Acumatica, Pool Source was able to accommodate both scenarios.
