4 Acumatica Cloud ERP Rumors Dispelled

4 Acumatica Cloud ERP Rumors - Let’s Set the Record Straight


There are several reasons why Acumatica is the market leading innovator of cloud ERP solutions. It’s popularity causes some jealousy and this is when rumors start to spread. As certified Acumatica Cloud ERP consultants and Acumatica Business Partners, we hope this article helps clear up any misconceptions regarding the Acumatica platform and its capabilities. Acumatica Cloud ERP is an innovator offering one of the few full-featured ERP platforms native to the cloud.

4 Common Rumors about Acumatica Cloud ERP

Rumor #1: Acumatica Cloud ERP is Legacy Acumatica in the Cloud
Acumatica Cloud ERP is natively developed in and for the cloud, which is why its deployment is intuitive, easy, and infinitely scalable. Unlike ‘cloud-washed’ legacy systems positioned as cloud, Acumatica enables your company to be ‘cloud-first’ and deploy in either a public or private cloud format.
Rumor #2: Acumatica Cloud Lacks Features and Functions
Acumatica’s Cloud ERP offers more than the on-premises versions ever did. Today, Acumatica Cloud ERP incorporates ERP and CRM as well as horizontal and vertical industry suites for your needs. For example, the Acumatica cloud-based financial management suite is easily added to the ERP cloud deployment or can be purchased as a stand-alone suite. In fact, Acumatica is so flexible that it was recognized as a ‘Visionary’ in Gartner's June 2017 Magic Quadrant for Cloud Core Financial Management Suites for Midsize, Large and Global Enterprises. When it comes to industry verticals, Acumatica leads the way in providing cloud-native functionality suites for distribution and manufacturing across multiple industries.
Rumor #3: Acumatica Cloud ERP Limits Flexibility
Acumatica cloud customers gain more flexibility than ever. Functional flexibility comes from being able to deploy the features you need when you need them. Use ERP but aren’t ready to go to the cloud for financial management? No problem. Ready to add financial management and warehousing? Simply acquire the license rights and deploy. This is where the flexible licensing feature of Acumatica Cloud ERP really shines.
Acumatica Cloud ERP eliminates user-based licensing and allows unlimited users regardless of location, department, device type, etc. That means your partners, suppliers, customers, and casual users can collaborate within your Acumatica cloud deployment at no extra cost – so now your innovation won’t be limited by a lack of unified data or workflows. This licensing revolution is based on resource utilization and functional suites used, affording you limitless scalability in support of your core business processes.
Further flexibility comes from the Acumatica cloud development platform (Cloud xRP Platform) that acts much like a platform as a service. Because Acumatica cloud deployments are driven by Acumatica partners that offer numerous useful extensions, they developed xRP to support the extensions your implementation partner tailors to your business needs.
Rumor #4: Acumatica will Charge for Unneeded Functionality
While Acumatica Cloud ERP provides application suites, there are different editions within the suites; for example, many suites come in standard and advanced versions. In addition, you can purchase application modules individually to address specific needs as they arise. One of the more popular add-on applications is Intercompany Accounting, which is ideal when you add a new business unit.
The ERP market has evolved at an impressive pace in recent years. The rise in popularity of cloud ERP solutions , and nowhere are the changes more valuable than in the cloud ERP market, where Acumatica is bringing new levels of value through fully functional and flexible CRM, ERP, financial management, and vertical industry functionality.
