From Distribution ERP Vendor Update (2021) DOWNLOAD
Acumatica is one of the newer players in the distribution ERP space, and it offers a cloud solution designed for distribution. Acumatica is hosted using Amazon Web Services (AWS), a leader in the industry. Acumatica was first released in 2008 and has been growing rapidly ever since.
Acumatica focuses on companies with revenues that range between $20 million and $200 million, with some existing customers that have significantly higher revenues than $200 million. The number of employees at companies that are good fits for Acumatica is around 200. Many of Acumatica’s most satisfied customers have come from an on-premises software that did not have the ability to have multiple functions supported.
A competitive advantage that Acumatica has over others is its ability to support cross functionality. Acumatica’s architecture is engineered to support cross-functionality. Another advantage is the ability to allow third parties to develop and modify business logic. The design of the ERP allows this to happen because the core logic is protected but business logic is available above the core logic to be modified.
The warehouse management functionality of Acumatica is one of the functionalities that drives companies to select Acumatica. With it, customers can use mobile devices for warehouse operations such as receiving, put-away, picking/packing and shipping, as well as inventory management activities like cycle counting or transfers.
Acumatica’s customers are extremely loyal – it has a 95% retention rate. And most customers that leave are due to acquisitions. Acumatica does not price on a user license or revenue basis – it prices based on transaction volume, which is unique to the industry. It does have flexibility, however, to do user-based pricing if a customer insists on it.
The majority of Acumatica’s customers are based in North America, but it has large customers in Southeast Asia, as well as some in the United Kingdom, Mexico and South Africa.
