Reviews of Acumatica ERP

An Acumatica ERP user says…

We are just starting to implement it now. It seems like it has all of the flexibility we need as we are a unique organization. It has a not for profit, charity, insurance company, guarantee company and trust so we needed a lot of flexibility in the way that our transactions were reported.

from AME Corporation says…

Acumatica is ERP software that is able to manage all aspects of your business. Designed from the ground up to be truly cloud-based, provides a rich user environment and the speed of client-based solution.

The good: Their unique value is the licensing is not user based which allows unlimited users to gain access to the system. In addition, you have your choice of deployment; SaaS, Private Cloud, or Hosted Cloud.

The bad: Acumatica is a younger player in this marketplace. Some areas of the software are lacking. However, they are well funded and are making significant progress. They were at v1.2 when I purchased and we just installed v4.1. The product is getting more and more refined and continues to provide tangible value.

from Conceptual MindWorks, Inc. says…

The product is very powerful and does the majority of what you would expect from accounting software. The Project Module canned reports leave much to be desired. Once the product is in place and stabilized, it works really well. Our problems have been with upgrades to the newer version.

The good: Importing feature in Accts Receivable; emailing of invoice feature; running and posting of credit cards from within the AR module.

The bad: Upgrades have been horrible. Bank rec is in a weird format (it works, but it takes getting used to); the workflow is not totally intuitive.

An Acumatica ERP user says…

Flexible, easy to use, lots of options out of the box

The good: Easy access via internet and use on multiple devices. Lots of options

The bad: No personalized comment capability on invoices. No versions on revised PO’s or SO’s. Only provide credit card access via authorize.net would be nice if it connects to any company. Credit card number encoding should show first few digits as well (cant tell type of card)
