Year in Review: Acumatica Cloud ERP’s Top Highlights of 2020

We can all agree that we are thankful that year of 2020 is coming to an end. However, we would say it hasn't been all that bad! An example would be the achievements of Team Acumatica, in accordance with the values we set forth in the Acumatica Customer Bill of Rights, was excited to be helping hundreds of customers get through the unforeseen and unprecedented challenges of 2020. With our award-winning cloud ERP solution, Acumatica was able to help their customers make the transition to remote work and helped businesses with exploding online growth succeed, while doing what they could to help struggling businesses remain intact through the pandemic.

We were also excited to see Acumatica be named as an ERP leader by users and industry analysts alike yet again! This recognition and a few other highlights from this year are worth mentioning but before we get into that, why are we talking about an American brand in Australia?

Acumatica’s top highlights of 2020

1. IDC names Acumatica a Midmarket Leader

In the 2020 IDC MarketScape report, IDC compared 23 worldwide SaaS and cloud ERP midmarket applications. Based on IDC's research and categories of capabilities and strategies, Acumatica was firmly placed in the Leader’s category above many of our major competitors, including Oracle NetSuite.

Acumatica invests heavily in R&D and this is paying off. They are consistently delivering a highly usable product which is innovative and meets the needs of every industry. The IDC analysts urge SMBs to “consider Acumatica when you are looking for a straightforward and adaptable ERP application that can be configured to fit your business.”

2. Sustaining customer growth during a pandemic

As we know, many businesses unfortunately faltered this year due to COVID-19 restrictions. But Acumatica thrived and was busily ensuring business continuity for their customers through their secure and mobile cloud ERP software. In fact, the shifting of their workforce from onsite to home was practically a non-issue for some of our customers, such as Rebecca Ogle, CFO of Safety Management Group.

“In a day’s time, we confirmed everyone had what they needed,” she says. “They took their office work home that night and started working from home the next day. I shudder to think about the amount of time and coordination it would have taken with our prior system.”

For Acumatica customer Monahan Partners, COVID hit while they were in the process of implementing Acumatica for their business. Vice President Matt Short says that the mobile access to Acumatica’s cloud-based ERP solution allowed their staff to work remotely when their local area experienced a spike in cases “without causing any disruption in customer service.”

We have many more examples of Acumatica customers keeping their business running smoothly and running successfully during this unforeseen pandemic. They have shown their gratitude and their love for the product by providing amazing user reviews, which led to our ranking as a Leader in Forbes, Gartner, and G2 channels (we were awarded multiple G2 badges for 2020).

3. Annual product releases arrived on schedule and uninterrupted
