Ready for an ERP Upgrade? Check Out the New Acumatica 6
The new Acumatica 6 has arrived, and if you haven’t investigated enterprise resource planning (ERP) software for your organization yet, then it’s time to start looking at what a reliable ERP platform can do for your company.
Acumatica 6 is a cloud-based ERP platform that promises to deliver an efficient, streamlined accounting and business management experience for finance leaders of any industry. The modern business world is laser-focused on agility, adaptability, and lean operations. The new Acumatica 6 brings a wealth of capability to the table, so you can stay flexible and ready to handle growing business and new challenges.
Intuitive Interfaces in Acumatica 6
ERP software exists to automate those time-consuming tasks that frustrate business leaders but are necessary to keep companies going. The Acumatica 6 platform offers sleek, responsive dashboards with true functionality in mind. No more wasted time searching for the correct formula tools or crosschecking various spreadsheets to compile vital reports. The Acumatica ERP interface is intuitive, easy to use, and built with efficiency in mind.
Acumatica 6 is also a cloud-based ERP. Small and growing businesses depend on flexibility and having to invest in massive amounts of hardware eats up resources and space. With a cloud-based platform, your company’s essential data is stored in the cloud securely.
As a financial professional you need to be ready to handle new regulatory requirements and track various metrics that are going to grow increasingly complex as your company expands. The Acumatica ERP platform offers you the ability to create customized reports and track your essential data in an intuitive format.
Small business founders and executives need to be able to tackle several sets of responsibilities early on if they want the company to succeed, and time wasted navigating dated spreadsheets isn’t the best method for accomplishing this. Financial software helps maximize employees’ time doing what matters most: serving clients and growing the business.
New software rollouts are often dreaded for a few reasons. First, most people don’t like taking time from important company matters to learn new software. Second, without proper training and preparation, a shoddily executed software deployment can be majorly disruptive to a company’s operations if they need to field countless IT concerns before they can get things moving again. Finally, a new software platform sometimes interferes with or isn’t compatible with the other software suites that a company needs to function.
Acumatica 6 was built to work well with other software and make it easier for employees to adapt compared to other types of ERP software. The Acumatica ERP supports representational state transfer (REST) application programming interface (API) with web-based services, meaning it can be custom-tailored to work with the software you already use for other aspects of the business. REST API functions to make integration with newer programming technology and languages easier.
The new Acumatica 6 platform also features multinational localization for businesses that operate in multiple languages. You can now easily generate reports and invoices in several languages much more easily.
The concept for the Acumatica 6 platform was a full-service suite, and one of the most exciting features is the Outlook add-in. This add-in allows you to manipulate contacts fluidly without leaving the application. Mark email senders as leads, see your entire history of interactions with a sender, and generate new contact profiles—all with a few simple clicks. You can also send important attachments and correspondence directly to the Acumatica 6 platform from Outlook, creating a more cohesive customer relationship management system.
As a financial leader for your business, you need to be able to produce useful reports and keep close tabs on all financial aspects of your company. Small and growing businesses rely on flexibility and agility, and the Acumatica 6 platform stands a cut above Microsoft ERP and other financial software platforms that simply lack such a range of capability.
