Since Kensium Solutions started in 2006, with only three experts in their fields, it has grown to nearly 180 employees working on the IT side. CEO Richard Grossi says, “We’ve done development work, custom applications, websites, workflows… basically using .NET, PHP and JAVA, and all the various tools that are in those spheres.” They are currently focusing on e-commerce, document management and customization & development services.
CEO Grossi learned about the Acumatica Cloud xRP Platform from a friend who suggested Kensium could fit well with Acumatica in the e-commerce area. In 2012, Grossi says, they approached Acumatica: “We talked through some of the ideas that Acumatica had and some of the things Kensium could bring to the table.”
Since the initial meeting Kensium Solutions and Acumatica have forged a collaborative partnership. Their first effort involved an e-commerce integration with Acumatica. Grossi notes, “We decided to architect the integration with Magento. We rolled it out in 4th quarter of 2012; we’ve been at it since then.” Having certified Magento developers in-house, Grossi says, “It was an easy fit for us.”
CTO Rahul Gedupudi praises the involvement of Acumatica’s technical staff during the development process: “They provided the framework to talk to Acumatica from an open source platform, such as Linux, PHP and so on. It reduced development time significantly.”
