03 Nov Can Modern ERP Really Make You Unstoppable?
Cloud ERP has been on the radar of the business world for some years now for the opportunities it presents to a work culture that is increasingly looking for change and mobility and we look here at how Acumatica thrives within this modern mind-set.
I’m sure we all remember the time when we started in business or wanted to make a brand new start with a company. We’d experienced challenges before and had taken away a fresh set of ideas and enlightened plans to build or develop within a different company that was something brighter and better. Too often though this can still leave us feeling exasperated as we experience the same issues or even different ones but that are all rooted in the same thing – inflexible business software.
You might envisage that by being different, by changing some long-established practices you can be more effective. Or perhaps, that by working with customers in a different way that a clear advantage could be won and an edge gained on your competition. But then you’re told by IT that there are a hundred technical reasons why your ideas can’t be implemented in time or, more simply, are financially untenable. It’s probably one of the most common causes of frustration – being left with that ‘if only’ feeling in not being able to realise your plans.
Getting on the Inside Track
So not only is this an annoyance but frequently the lack of ability to progress an idea means that the ‘opportunity window’ is closed before you can react. Your competitors or new market entrants, with more manoeuvrability, get there first and steal your thunder. The frustration starts to compound.
Understanding this source of dissatisfaction, one ERP company, Acumatica, has already resolved the problem. Of course timing is everything but with huge expertise already in ERP, and by looking around at prevailing advances in technology in 2008 when HTML5 was impressing the business world, the founders of Acumatica Cloud ERP created a technology stack that addresses this hounding source of frustration. The platform is impressive and, with its evolution nurturing DNA, is unsurpassed more than ten years on. By engineering a Modern ERP system that is technically advanced, easy to customise and connectable to modern software, Acumatica users are imbued with incomparable power. Changes and internal development tasks are suddenly more achievable, delivered rapidly and managed in a sustainable way.
Due to its technology foresight, Acumatica has received industry-wide recognition for its edge in flexibility. Recently, IDC Marketspace, placed Acumatica in pole position for industry leadership out of over 20 ERP contenders. ERP software can take a long time to develop and these strengths place Acumatica in the technology ‘driving seat’ for years to come.
If we take, for example, a wholesale business, omni-channel thinking is normally on the agenda. Acumatica’s openness and flexibility in integrating with systems such as eCommerce, Third Party Logistics or other disciplines is not only the antidote to a strategy headache but also the life-affirming answer to any question marks that may linger over the quest for endless possibilities and change.
In our business rumination, we might picture ourselves and our business as being unstoppable. With Acumatica you can make your business dreams a reality, free yourselves of any doubt and start to implement a business model that reflects everything that had been hoped for, and perhaps even more.
