Features & Functionality
General Features

Acumatica has support for a variety of business operations. It has different software modules that offer users access to forecasting tools, accurate data analysis, collection, workflow management, and data visualization to promote the implementation of better business policies. Some of Acumatica’s key features are as follows:

Business Intelligence

Using Acumatica, it is possible to gather data and information from third-party tools, data sources, and Acumatica’s dashboard. In addition, ISVs (independent software vendors) provide businesses with a variety of reporting tools to enable them to view organization-wide data.

Just as well, the data can be viewed by other entities like customers, businesses, and vendors. Real-time data is available.

Distribution Management

With Acumatica, distribution management takes on a whole new capability, granting enterprises the ability to view inventory as they move in transit, inventory cost, available inventory, and reorder quantities. It is possible to completely do away with delay, as the generation of order delivery and the processing of sales order speeds up considerably.

Just as well, Acumatica makes it possible for users to control costs across the supply and distribution chains completely. In addition, there is the option for the integration of these processes with financials and company sales.

Project Accounting

This special module makes it possible for users to apportion shared expenses and overhead costs to different projects, taking accounting formulas into consideration. Users can also streamline every billing scenario e.g, contract-specific pricing, fixed price, milestone billing, and cost-plus.

With Acumatica, the cost of materials and labor can be billed according to the project or category of the task. In addition, partners, contractors, and personnel can be entered into timesheets on the Acumatica dashboard.

Commerce

With the commerce module, users can manage business distribution procedures in order to step up the customer experience. For example, clients can manage inventory sub-items, expiration dates, warehouses, and multiple lots.

The commerce module also comes with a product configurator which will aid users in the establishment of control over the products that they offer. In addition, a multilevel, multidimensional rules-configured method is used on product and sales orders and quotes.

Acumatica also has support for Android and iOS, even if the UI is different on both platforms. Different icons exist for functions like reports, purchase orders, and expense claims.
