Successful ERP Implementation: Quantum Group

Distribution company switches from NetSuite to Acumatica

The Quantum Group is a producer of high quality, custom-manufactured fabrics which are used in a variety of commercial and industrial applications. Quantum has a complex corporate structure consisting of seven companies in three different physical locations. Managing this corporate structure without excessive software expenses was critical for Quantum’s business.

Frustrated with their experience with NetSuite, Quantum began searching for another ERP system that would offer more control over costs, support and user licensing. They found their solution in Acumatica.

Key results for Quantum Group

  • Eliminated SaaS vendor lock-in by switching from NetSuite
  • Deployed new system in 30 days – including migrating data from NetSuite
  • Managed 7 companies across multiple physical locations


The Quantum Group needed to:

  • Manage financials across 7 companies in 3 locations
  • Involve multiple users
  • Delegate user-specific work assignments and security settings
  • Utilize custom reporting
With NetSuite, we had to limit the number of users to keep costs down. In addition, it was difficult to get our questions answered by their customer support team.

ERP Solution

Quantum Group recognized the benefits of a web-based SaaS solution—no client software to install, access from all locations, access to real-time data, and no technical resources required. Acumatica provided a SaaS solution that didn’t lock Quantum Group into a particular solution and provided them with the ability to control the timing of their upgrades.

“Acumatica was a good fit for Quantum because advanced financial features can be shared by multiple users across multiple business locations and corporate entities,” said Matt Marks from Acumatica partner M2 Technologies, Inc. Unlike NetSuite, Acumatica does not charge user-based fees so Quantum can involve more people in business process automation.

Benefits for Quantum Group

Using Acumatica, Quantum Group can automate its operation by quickly adding users to its business processes without installing client software or paying additional license fees. All users access real-time data, features, and reports from anywhere they are located. Acumatica SaaS is powered by Amazon Web Services.

Acumatica Cloud ERP gave Quantum the control they needed at a price they could afford.
