"Cloud ERP Acumatica Delivers Enterprise ERP for Mid-Market Growing Businesses"
What does it take to be an Enterprise ERP?
Enterprise-grade ERP software is not a complete solution with the software alone. The acronym ERP stands for Enterprise Resource Planning. ERP is combination of software and services that integrate into one business solution. ERP customers rely on certified ERP consultants for implementation, support and ongoing training. ERP consultants deliver the solution to meet the unique requirements of the customers. They also help adapt the ERP system to improve reporting, processes and workflows. The goal is for the new ERP to help the customer increase profits by becoming more efficient.
In the past, Enterprise ERP software and its functionality were out of reach for small and mid-sized businesses (SMB). Acumatica provides growing SMB companies with affordable and functional “enterprise” level ERP solutions.

Strong partner ecosystem
Acumatica works 100% through a channel of value-added resellers (VARs) who work with local businesses for Acumatica sales, implementations and training. Customers rely on the VARs to deliver the solution after learning about unique customer requirements. The strong community of ISVs and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) assist the VARs to implement the best fit ERP solution for the customer.
ERP software isn’t something you just plug and play. It requires implementation and training to optimize it to work for each unique business. The VARs’ expertise is required to deliver implementation and training based on the needs of the business and employees.Enterprise services
