Acumatica, founded in 2008, is a technology provider that develops cloud- and browser-based enterprise resource planning (ERP) software for small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs). The company is headquartered in Bellevue, WA (Seattle metropolitan area).[1]

History[edit]

In November 2008, Acumatica launched its first product, Acumatica ERP, alongside an accompanying financial demo. In the following year, on-premises and SaaS software versions were released. Acumatica's distribution software came a year later in April 2010.[citation needed]

Acumatica received an investment from Visma in September 2011.[2]

In 2013, Yury Larichev became the company's Chief Executive Officer, soon after the company moved its headquarters to Kirkland, WA.[3][4]

In March of the same year, Acumatica launched version 4.0 of its ERP suite, which introduced a new user interface as well as Acumatica Studio for ERP app development.[5]

In March 2014, former Microsoft VP Jon Roskill was named Acumatica's new CEO.[6] Acumatica launched its xRP Cloud Platform 2 months later.[7] In the fall of 2014, Acumatica released the beta version of its new suite, Acumatica 5.0.[8] Around the same time, Acumatica secured over $13 million in funding in an effort led by MYOB.[9][third-party source needed]

In January 2018, Kirill Tatarinov, a long-time software industry executive and former President of the Microsoft Business Solutions Division, with end-to-end responsibility for the Microsoft Dynamics business, joined the Board of Directors.[10]

In June 2018, Acumatica secured a $25 million Series C round of funding led by Accel-KKR, a Silicon Valley technology-focused investment firm.[11] Acumatica will use this investment to support growth, add headcount and fund further development of artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning capabilities embedded in its software.[citation needed]

In June 2019, private equity fund EQT Partners acquired Acumatica.[12]

In December 2019, Acumatica announced a partnership with accounting and advisory firm BDO USA.[13]

In April 2020, Acumatica acquired JAAS Advanced Manufacturing Software from JAAS Systems.[14]

Technology[edit]

Acumatica's web-based ERP applications are built on top of its internally developed platform xRP. The software can be deployed on-premises, hosted in a data center, or run on a cloud-computing platform (see operating environment below). The software can be licensed or subscribed to as a Software as a Service (SaaS) solution.[15][16][17]

Acumatica's SaaS offering runs on Amazon Web Services (AWS)[18] and Windows Azure[19] and SQL Azure.[15] Acumatica's licensed software runs on a Microsoft Windows Server with a Microsoft SQL database. Applications run as .NET managed code.[20]

Recognition[edit]

In 2012, Acumatica was named a Top 100 Global Finalist by Red Herring[21] and number 1 in the Top 20 Coolest Cloud Vendors by CRN.[22]

In 2013, Acumatica was named one of CRN's "20 Coolest Cloud Software Vendors of the Cloud" for "solid growth throughout 2012" and its "ability to offer ERP in a SaaS model or hosted on-premises" in a data center or the cloud.[23] Acumatica was a finalist for the 2013 SIIA Software Codie awards for Best Supply Chain Management Solution,[24] and it was also recognized as one of the top 50 Russian start-ups of the year.[25]

In 2014, Acumatica won a Gold Stevie in the "New Product or Service of the Year" category for its Cloud Platform.[26] Acumatica was awarded a SIIA Software Codie award in May of the same year for Best Supply Chain Management Solution.[27]

In August 2017, Acumatica Cloud ERP had received PC Mag Editors' Choice Awards for Best ERP Software.[29] Also in 2017, Acumatica won the SIIA CODiE Award for Best Cloud ERP Solution.[28]

In 2018, Acumatica received IT research company Gartner's highest score for customer satisfaction.[30]
