Acumatica is dialled in on usability, which is prevalent in the recent Acumatica 2022 R2 release.  This was echoed by the G2 Summer 2022 Mid-Market Usability Index Report, where Acumatica received the top score of 88% and the G2’s Best Usability Badge.

Today we are going to summarize the three key areas of focus Acumatica has outlined for this update. Of course, if you would like a more in-depth look and how it will fit in your organization, we are happy to set up a demonstration.

Enhancements to Usability and Technology:

The platform emphasizes providing an intuitive interface that is continuously enhanced through yearly updates, and Acumatica is praised for its usability. By adding a few new features, such as an automated mobile signature capture that helps streamline the processing of sales orders and invoices, Acumatica 2022 R2 improves usability. Additionally, users can now modify their mobile workspace to match their desktop workspace.

Enhancements to Localization and Integration:

The constraints of how and where you do business have melted in the last few years.  Acumatica has prioritized enhancing localization, global integrations, and improved financial management.

  • Localization and Integration: The implementation of Canada-specific features at the company level is to simplify the setup, reporting, and management of companies with legal entities in multiple countries.  Plus you can now experience painless tax calculations and enhanced global business via automatically assigned tax zones to new sales orders and invoices based on country, state, and zip code.
  • Financials: With the new GL approval feature in Acumatica, users can set up approval rules and delegate approval authority to specific individuals, streamlining the previously manual process. Moreover, organizations can now send individualized dunning letters to customers, complete with all relevant information, making the process of collecting payments more effective and efficient.

Enhancements to Target Micro-Vertical Markets

In a market as competitive as this one, it is essential for businesses to deliver their capabilities at the micro-vertical level if they want to successfully target and acquire new customers. New and improved solutions are included in Acumatica 2022 R2 for a variety of business sectors.

  • Distributors, Retailers, and Commerce Merchants: Users have the ability to define cost centres in their inventory, which will help make their organizations more productive and profitable.  This helps with the material handling during the incoming, storage, and outgoing processes. In addition, non-stock items can now be converted into stock items,  and stock items can be converted into non-stock items. Additionally, Acumatica is in the process of introducing role-based dashboards for Sales Managers, Warehouse Managers, Purchasing Managers, Shipping Clerks, and Receiving Clerks.
  • Contractors and Service Organizations:  It is now possible to schedule service technicians based on an individual employee’s skills and the skills required for the service task. The scheduling process has become more efficient. In addition, the Acumatica mobile app includes a tool for recognizing scanned receipt images, making entering service expenses a more time-effective activity.
