Acumatica was recently awarded the 2016 SaaS Awards Program in the Best SaaS Product for Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) category. This was the inaugural SaaS Awards Program, having partnered with the annual Cloud Awards that is now entering its sixth year.

Local Acumatica partner One Channel CEO Bernard Ford says the cloud-based accounting and ERP market continues to skyrocket as growth companies require a consolidated view of business information in real time. “Acumatica is founded on a vision to provide medium sized businesses with a business management solution that is easy-to-use and accessible from anywhere. We are committed to helping accelerate business growth.”

With awards for excellence and innovation in SaaS, the Software-as-a-Service Awards program accepted entries worldwide. Categories for the 2016 awards program included Best SaaS Product for Small Business, Best Enterprise-Level SaaS Product and Best Data-Driven SaaS Product.

“SaaS technologies are critical to success in the competitive global marketplace, so for Acumatica to be selected as winner reflects a huge achievement for our team,” said Acumatica CEO Jon Roskill. “Through our ERP and xRp products, we’re helping thousands of companies around the world become more efficient while accelerating the growth and competitiveness of their businesses."

"It is a huge achievement to win in this category considering the calibre of the competition, and honours the dedication and commitment of our entire team,” he adds.

SaaS Awards and Cloud Awards organiser Larry Johnson said: “After a lot of hard work, we are thrilled to be able to announce the final list of winners – a collection of some of the brightest and best solutions in the SaaS space today.”

The Cloud Awards is an international program which has been recognising and honouring industry leaders, innovators and organisational transformation in cloud computing since 2011. The awards are open to large, small, established and start-up organisations from across the entire globe, with an aim to find and celebrate the pioneers who will shape the future of the Cloud as we move into 2016-17 and beyond.

“What makes us happier than anything else is to see such a varied mix of the excellence and innovation that quite literally covers the globe. It’s an international party to which any service offering is invited. We look forward to celebrating more excellence in the 2016-17 Cloud Awards, which is now open for submissions, and the 2017 SaaS Awards, which will open for submissions in late 2016.”
