ERP Solution

ERP Solution

Youngevity looked at several traditional solutions such as SAP, Epicor, Microsoft Dynamics GP, Microsoft Dynamics NAV, Escalate, and a few others. Acumatica was the best solution because it offered the benefits of Cloud software along with an API that could easily connect with their existing Genealogy System.

Youngevity discovered that Acumatica was built on a solid architecture and wasn’t burdened with numerous patches and client software that makes maintaining old technology difficult. When changes are needed, the system can be adapted using the customization tools.

Acumatica’s pricing model is built for a growing company like Youngevity. New users can easily be added without worrying about redistributing licenses.

Outcome

Outcome

Acumatica helped Youngevity link their Genealogy System with integrated accounting and inventory management. The person previously responsible for order entry was free to take on additional responsibilities required to manage Youngevity’s growth.

Acumatica’s multi-currency capabilities and ease of access position Youngevity to expand business globally. Youngevity is already in the Phillippines and is expanding into five new European and Asian countries in 2011. By 2012, global expansion will include countries in Africa, and in 2013, South America. Acumatica’s features support a global supply chain with six warehouses and operations in New Zealand.

As a web-based solution, Acumatica provides Youngevity with global access to inventory across multiple warehouses without the hassle of VPN or other client software. Adaptable integration tools give Youngevity the option to import data in real-time or import files in batch mode.
