Acumatica cloud ERP-Acumatica is sharpening its attention on the manufacturing ERP for SMBs market.
The Seattle-based cloud ERP vendor unveiled several upgrades to its Acumatica 2020 R1 platform at Acumatica Summit 2020 in Las Vegas. Primary among these was functionality for the Acumatica Manufacturing Edition module that was added with the newly announced acquisition of JAAS Systems Ltd., a company based in Columbus, Ohio that provides manufacturing software. Acumatica also released a new Payroll module as part of the Acumatica 2020 R1 platform, which is designed to help construction firms handle tricky payroll issues.
Analysts believe the expanded Acumatica cloud ERP capabilities could be good for customers as they add more targeted industry functionality.
Acumatica continues to expand its offering by adding more connectivity across the business, including payroll and manufacturing, said Mickey North Rizza, IDC program vice president for enterprise applications and digital commerce.
“Acumatica’s cloud ERP product has moved the company from pure standard and required ERP functionality to even more functionality as it targets specific workflows like payroll, closing gaps that have notoriously cost a business much time, expense and headache,” Rizza said. “In addition, with the addition of another industry — manufacturing — the organizations can go even deeper into their bill-of-materials, MRP [material requirements planning] and inventory concerns.”
JAAS Systems acquisition adds manufacturing capabilities
The acquisition of JAAS Systems adds manufacturing functions to Acumatica Manufacturing Edition, including make-to-stock, make-to-order, engineer-to-order and project-centric.
JAAS Systems was already an Acumatica partner and independent software vendor (ISV) with extensive integrations into the Acumatica Manufacturing platform. Acquiring the company enables Acumatica to improve the platform faster, Jon Roskill, CEO of Acumatica, said in an interview with SearchERP from Acumatica Summit 2020.
