Acumatica, the world’s fastest-growing cloud ERP company, continues its national roadshow this month to help educate small and mid-size businesses about digital transformation and the operational benefits of the company’s recent 2018 R2 product release. Acumatica’s eight-city roadshow kicked off with events in Chicago, Columbus and Anaheim the first week in October followed by Dallas, the Seattle area, and Atlanta the week of October 8. The tour concludes the week of October 15 in New York City and Orlando.
The development priorities for 2018 R2 were exceptional usability, increased customer satisfaction, and compliance with new industry and governmental regulations for today’s SMB market needs. Sectors that can take advantage of R2 include manufacturing, distribution, construction, retail/ecommerce, services, healthcare, software and more. The latest release also provides improved dashboarding capabilities largely based on customer feedback and inputs. Together these product advances provide a superior user experience not only for Acumatica customers, but for their customers as well, facilitating a truly connected business.
Acumatica 2018 R2 includes Financial Management enhancements so multi-entity companies can close books independently of one another. It also supports updated Tax Calculation Integration, providing a choice of sales tax calculation providers, and offers additional functionality to support deferred revenue recognition for ASC 606 compliance. Advances in the Project Accounting module support connected businesses by allowing salespeople to work collaboratively with project managers to create quotes and convert them to projects.
According to the announcement, CRM upgrades include a deeper Outlook integration linking email activities with any contact in the system and GDPR Compliance Tools to simplify and safeguard the handling of personal data. Portals have been enhanced so organizations with multiple companies and branches can better control information that is visible to specific customers.
R2 Manufacturing Edition makes improvements to Advanced Planning and Scheduling (APS), equipping manufacturers to consistently and cost-effectively set accurate and reliable delivery dates. Integration with the Project Accounting module aggregates cost tracking over multiple production runs so businesses can determine profitability for large jobs and contracts. The bill of materials includes additional revision status controls and production management provides additional processing screens for streamlining processes.
