According to a recent Total Economic Impact  (TEI) Cost Savings And Business Benefits
Enabled By Acumatica interview by Forrester,  with four existing customers and subsequent financial analysis found that a composite organization based on these interviewed organizations would experience benefits of $3.5 million over three years versus costs of $2.1 million, adding up to a net present value (NPV) of $1.4 and an ROI of 66%.

Value 

  • Low Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) – Reduce the total cost of ownership over the foreseeable lifetime of the product (at a minimum 3-5 years), including licensing, support, hardware, upgrade, and hosting costs. Be sure to add the cost of additional products required to run the system (web server, eCommerce platform, database server, collaboration tools, CRM, etc.), which includes all required hardware, licensing, and support costs.
  • Scale as you grow – Ability to accommodate heavier volumes, more resources, and more users as your business grows. Pay only for what you use. Add more resources when you need them.
  • Flexible licensing options – Offers perpetual or subscription licensing (depreciable capital expense versus an ongoing operating expense).
  • Multiple deployment options – Deployment methods allow on premises in your facility, private cloud of your choice, or our public cloud using Amazon Web Services (AWS) or Microsoft Azure.
  • Preserve capital for other business initiatives – Cloud deployments reduce the need for initial cash outlay for hardware and software purchases. Cloud deployments reduce the amount of internal IT staff required for hardware and software support and maintenance.
  • Charged by resources used, not by user – The value of an ERP system is directly related to the number of people who use it. By involving everybody (including customers and vendors), businesses can digitally transform.

Acumatica has extensive functionality in many areas of business let’s explore 3 areas that make the transition from being reactive to proactive and get immediate access to the kinds of insights that lead to better business decisions.

Financial Management

Structure financial statements to deliver managerial insights that go beyond basic GAAP compliance.

Financial statements can be created across entities, using different combinations of segments and row and column definitions to make important information readily visible to authorized users.

Choose an allocation method:

  • By Account Period to Date
  • From Previous GL Allocation

Then decide how to distribute relevant amounts:

  • By percentage
  • By Weight
  • By Destination Account (PTD or YTD)

Streamlined, customizable, and segmented account structures simplify the chart of accounts resulting in ease of data entry and increased insights.

Reporting within and across different business units, segments, or branches is built into the core functionality of Acumatica.
