Next generation ‘Post-Modern’ ERP technology was introduced to Africa at the first Acumatica Cloud ERP Summit recently. The event was held in conjunction with Acumatica premier partner One Channel and was well attended with more than 120 executives from leading mid-market and large organisations.
Delegates were given a sneak preview of Acumatica 6 that is due to be launched in September and Laurent Dedenis, president of International Operations at Acumatica, gave keynote address titled 'Why all business will move to the Cloud by 2020'.
One Channel CEO Bernard Ford is excited about the new release that is designed to help customers streamline their business processes, accelerate their growth and connect all aspects of their business. "Acumatica is continuously improving and expanding its offering and the African market is ready for a true Cloud ERP solution."
The intuitive dashboards and key performance indicators (KPIs) are just some of the new adaptable features in Acumatica 6. Individuals can put trending charts and tables, web pages, widgets, alerts, and a variety of other things —all with the parameters and format one needs on a dashboard.
Ford says it all comes down to information, and getting information access to the right people at the right time. "Accurate, timely, and available right now, right here - in whatever form you decide. Companies have more data available to them than ever before, but they are all struggling to figure out how to make sense of it and put it to good use. This impacted the features that have been built into Acumatica 6."
Acumatica 6 has been streamlined to transform data into information. Plus, as with all current Acumatica applications, these features are fully mobile. One can access them anytime anywhere on a desktop, laptop, tablet or phone.
"Data is important, yes, but information is what actually moves your business—and analytics turns data into actionable information. It gives the data meaning so that you can do something with it, because businesses must have accurate and timely information to stay competitive in this constantly evolving marketplace," he concludes.
