Customizable CRM, Inventory, and BI All-In-One
Acumatica is a one of the easiest ERPs to use, learn, and customize. When it comes to ERP, people are looking for 3 main things: CRM (customer relationship management), inventory management, and business intelligence. There are many tools out there to accomplish each of these things individually but Acumatica does all of them within one customizable interface that can be hosted anywhere.
There are many similar systems that have an integrated system like this available online.
So what is unique about Acumatica? Other than the fact that it is an official accounting system, here are my favorite things, in no particular order:
- Almost everything–customization and even log tracing–are done in same place that you use the application: your web browser. (No need to hire expensive ABAP programmers like in SAP to modify the business logic layer or add new fields.)
- There is extensive explanation of every field for every page–one click away on the page.
- Even novice users that know some SQL can create basically new screens and business intelligence views… which can then be used in dashboards, easily accessible data downloadable into Excel with a single click, made into reports, and more..
- Easy to use data import/export.
These kind of features would never be achievable in most web platforms today and customizing your software is definitely not something that could be as easily taught.
Anyway, let’s take a few steps back. Here is a video explaining the platform and hosting options:
