Benefits of Acumatica Cloud ERP
Compared to older-generation, on-premise ERP software solutions, Acumatica Cloud ERP offers many benefits, including:
Industry-specific editions. E-commerce and distribution companies that use Acumatica Cloud ERP e-Commerce Edition or Distribution Edition do not have to spend precious time and money customizing the software for the unique needs of their industry. ERP software produced by other vendors is often generic, requiring significant money and labor investment in custom-tailoring the software.
Up-to-date, real-time information. Acumatica knows how important it is for e-commerce and distribution companies to ensure everyone involved in the business has access to current company information. As a cloud-based platform, Acumatica Cloud ERP is constantly collecting, processing, and making available information that employees need to be as productive as possible.
Accessible from any location. Acumatica Cloud ERP does not require employees to be at company offices in order to be able to take advantage of the ERP software. Acumatica Cloud ERP can be accessed from any device and from any location that provides access to the Internet.
Why Industry-Specific ERP Solutions Are Needed
Many ERP solutions available on the market are generic and designed for general business purposes. These ERP solutions tend to lack features that distribution companies find helpful.
For example, general business ERP can handle simple order processing. However, the software might lack features for managing inventory and tracking order fulfillment.
Conversely, general business ERP software solutions tend to contain many features that go unused or that need to be heavily adapted in order to be useful. These features can complicate implementation and use of the ERP software, creating employee frustration and increasing the time needed for employees to become comfortable with the software.
An industry-specific solution, like the Acumatica Distribution Edition, makes it easy to streamline operations and focus on more strategic projects.
How Industry-Specific ERP Solutions Scale Better
Industry-specific ERP solutions, such as Acumatica Cloud ERP e-Commerce Edition and Distribution Edition, scale better than non-industry-specific ERP solutions.
Industry-specific ERP solutions incorporate the latest best practices of the particular industries they are created for. As a result, companies that use industry-specific ERP solutions are able to grow faster and be more competitive than companies that use a generic ERP solution.
How Acumatica Cloud ERP Helps E-Commerce Companies Increase Speed, Performance and Efficiency
Make business decisions faster
Since Acumatica Cloud ERP e-Commerce Edition and Distribution Edition provide access to accurate, real-time data, companies that use Acumatica Cloud ERP are able to make important business decisions more rapidly than companies that do not use Acumatica Cloud ERP. Acumatica Cloud ERP presents vital information in a single, unified and easy-to-understand interface. Companies that do not use ERP solutions have to wait for information to be compiled and reports to be prepared before important business decisions can be made.
Share company information easily and securely
E-commerce companies that use Acumatica Cloud ERP are able to provide current and reliable information to suppliers, customers and users who just need occasional access to company information. Acumatica knows that easy and secure sharing of information is crucial in order for businesses to be successful. That is why the pricing structure of Acumatica Cloud ERP is based on the features and resources utilized, rather than number of users.
Move offices and warehouses with less trouble
Since Acumatica Cloud ERP is cloud-based, it can be accessed from wherever there is an Internet connection. Not only does this make it easier for company employees to access company data, it also makes it so there is one less thing to worry about when a company wants to move its operations to another location. There is no need to transport computer servers and other hardware and risk data loss or corruption. All company data remains safely maintained and backed up by the Cloud hosting provider.
