Why Should Customers Choose Acumatica Retail & Commerce ERP For Your Business

Disconnected systems require multiple manual entries, lead to error-prone processes, and foster business silos (eg., sales and finance, inventory and website etc.) making it difficult to get an accurate picture of the health of the entire organization.

Retail and eCommerce companies using small business accounting packages or legacy ERP software must either rekey sales information into their back-office systems or use antiquated APIs to enter data.This results in time and cost-prohibitive delays and mistakes in product fulfillment.

Companies are limited in how much they can customize the software to accomodate new features and technologies, restricting both efficiency and growth.

Using disparate eCommerce and ERP platforms or trying to handle all online sales processing throught the eCommerce application alone makes it challenging to offer the services customers demand from an online ordering system.

This results in an inconsistent online/offline experience, adversely affecting the company's unique brand, reputation and profitability.

ERP that works for different Industries

Apparel, Leather and Jewellery

Variants, or matrix items, are an essential requirement for apparel and fashion products to manage pricing and availability across product families where style, color, and size combinations can be complex to manage. Supporting a buy online and pickup in-store (BOPIS) is also vital.

Sports and Recreation

Matrix items are important for sellers of sporting goods and recreation. Personalization and made-to-order requirements exist to handle logos, customized jerseys, and engraving. Rentals are also typical for short-term leases of outdoor and camping equipment. Discounts and promotions are popular.

Health and Beauty

Health and beauty businesses need close control of products to meet FDA and consumer regulations such as lot and serial tracking. Return customers are a significant portion of revenues, so loyalty programs, event scheduling, and online gift cards are valuable. Embedded CRM tools allow for close customer engagement, which Acumatica ERP provides out-of-the-box.

Electronics and Electrical Components

Matrix items are critical for electronics companies to handle variations in voltage, current, package options, and so on. Serial and lot tracking and warranties are standard as well. Allowing customers to buy online and pickup in-store (BOPIS) and in-store ordering are important for a positive customer experience.

Toys and Games

Features such as serialization and lot tracking help control toy and game inventory. Other requirements typical in the industry include bar code labeling, returns management, promotions, and loyalty programs, because the industry is highly competitive.

Hardware and Home Improvement

Home, hardware, and DIY merchants need customer-specific pricing capabilities to cater to repeat and loyal buyers. Field service to deliver oversized items to customers is a frequent requirement. Serialization of components and lot traceability are also desired features. Merchants require mobile access for on-site project estimates.

Furniture and Decor

Product configuration is a must-have for most furniture merchants. Serialization is critical to trace components through post-sale. Acumatica’s field service features like scheduling, contract management, and mobile access foster deliveries and repairs. Portable scanning helps retailers checkout customers anywhere inside the store.

Medical Devices and Supplies

Those who sell medical devices need tight control over compliance to FDA and ISO regulations plus lot traceability. Acumatica excels at document management and government reporting forms to manage the required compliance filings. Medical supply merchants (such as latex gloves, hazardous materials receptacles, and hand sanitizer) have fewer regulation requirements but need client tracking for purchases and post-sale support.

Agricultural, Farming, and Nursery

These companies have seed-to-sale traceability requirements. Those selling consumable items have FDA compliance needs, too. Particular attention to inventory storage and shelf-life concerns within warehouses is of utmost importance. Merchants need age verification to sell items such as cannabis and other controlled products.

Automotive Parts

Automotive parts suppliers have a need for serialization and matrix items capabilities. Moreover, they require connections to the automotive standards databases such as Aftermarket Catalog Exchange Standard (ACES) and Product Information Exchange Standard (PIES).

Other Industries

Food and beverage retailers face stiff regulatory compliance. Grocery stores require scales to connect to their POS devices. Bookstores need to manage a large volume of SKUs. Jewelry stores must have lot control and matrix item support. Professional services organizations need robust field service features and mobile access.

Value

How does the product maximize features and functions vs. cost for the usable lifetime of the product?

Feature Benefit
Multiple Deployment Options Choose your preferred method of deployment: on premises in your facility, private cloud of your choice, or our public cloud using Amazon Web Services (AWS).
Flexible Licensing Options Choose whether you prefer subscription or perpetual licensing (depreciable capital expense versus an ongoing operating expense).
Low Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) The total cost of ownership is lower than many other ERP systems. Costs you may incur during the foreseeable lifetime of the product (at a minimum 3-5 years), include licensing, support, hardware, upgrade, and hosting costs. Don’t forget the cost of additional products required to run the system: web server, eCommerce platform, database server, collaboration tools, CRM, etc.
Scale as you grow Acumatica grows with your business. It can accommodate heavier volumes, more resources, and more users as your business grows. Add more resources when you need them. You only ever pay for what you use.
Preserve capital for other business initiatives Cloud deployments reduce the amount of internal IT staff required for hardware and software support and maintenance. They also reduce the need for initial cash outlay for hardware and software purchases, which could be a major concern.
Charged by resources used, not by user Acumatica only charges for the resources used, not the user count like many software companies do. Charging by user penalizes growing businesses.

Risk
