Acumatica: Cloud ERP with Seamless Integration
Jon Roskill, CEO
Not too long ago, organizations had an Accounts Receivable (AR) clerk exporting data every month, manually handling hundreds of records from 40 different systems, and recreating invoices in Dynamics AX. This resulted in complexities in major business operations and induced far too many errors. When leaders and decision makers think of it today, using manual Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems to manage their business functionalities doesn’t appear to be an appealing idea. With a primary focus on technology and automation, Acumatica provides cloud ERP and accounting software to help small and medium firms unlock their potential. “Our suite of business software is specifically designed with the client’s organizational goals in mind,” affirms Jon Roskill, CEO, Acumatica. “For many businesses, the biggest investments they make are in human resources, inventory and fixed assets, and managing those resources is what our cloud ERP is all about.”
Headquartered in Bellevue, WA, Acumatica’s cloud-based ERP benefits organizations by offering application scalability and reducing hardware costs. Designed with an idea to be better providers of Software as a Solution (SaaS), Acumatica understands what matters to businesses when it comes to using technology in the cloud. For many organizations, choosing Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) provides the benefits of an enterprise-class solution but without the enterprise IT budget. With Acumatica SaaS, companies can access their ERP anytime, anywhere—from any internet-connected device through a web browser. “Organizations can scale resources up or down based on growth or changing business needs, and free themselves from the complexities and costs of managing hardware and maintaining software,” states Roskill.
In a compelling example, Aditi Staffing, a former division of Aditi Technologies which was later acquired by Symphony Teleca, had to quickly become a standalone entity and was looking to invest in a new accounting and ERP system.

To manage the company’s revenue stream of several millions a month, running on manual systems and minimal visibility, Aditi Staffing chose Acumatica. The latter offered a promising cloud platform consisting of various modules and unlimited user pricing. In addition, Acumatica’s ERP software also provided the flexibility of customization to suit Aditi Staffing’s operations.
Built on superior cloud and mobile technology and a unique customer-centric licensing model, Acumatica delivers a suite of fully integrated business management applications that help in managing financials, customer relationships, project accounting, distributions, and manufacturing. “From online accounting for smaller local businesses to feature-rich global financial applications for the larger organizations, the applications are designed to support a firm’s requirements,” explains Roskill. “Enterprises can also manage quotes and orders, track inventory, automate purchasing, and improve customer service.” To manage leads, contacts, sales opportunities, post sales services, and customer portals, Acumatica’s ERP includes a standard CRM functionality. Organizations can efficiently communicate and collaborate with customers through the Acumatica Customer Portal.
Using Acumatica’s cloud-based ERP applications, an enterprise can profitably grow by allowing their employees the flexibility to work via a web-browser from their homes. Whether its iOS, Android, Windows, or Linux, Acumatica can run on any platform—allowing organizations to take advantage of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) initiatives. “Empowering users, taking control of an organization’s business, and playing to their strengths are the core areas where Acumatica Cloud ERP suite of business applications will thrive to prosper in the years ahead,” concludes Roskill.
