Acumatica, founded in 2008,[1] 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) and has a number of satellite offices around the globe.[2]

Product[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.[3][4][5]

Operating environment[edit]

Acumatica's SaaS offering runs on Amazon Web Services (AWS)[6] and Windows Azure[7] and SQL Azure.[3] Acumatica's licensed software runs on a Microsoft Windows Server with a Microsoft SQL database. Applications run as .NET managed code.[8]

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.

Acumatica received an investment from Visma in September 2011.[9]

In September 2012, former Microsoft General Manager and Worldwide SMB Sales & Marketing Operations Executive Yury Larichev joined Acumatica as its new Chief Operating Officer.[10] Larichev became the company's Chief Executive Officer at the onset of 2013, soon after the company moved its headquarters to Kirkland, WA.[11][12]

In early 2013, Acumatica appointed Christian Lindberg as VP of Partner Solutions.[13] 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.[14] The product launched in Asia 2 months later alongside the appointment of Erwan Philippe as the Asia General Manager.[15][16] Jeff Wilson also joined the Acumatica team as Chief Financial Officer during this time.[17]

In March 2014, former Microsoft VP Jon Roskill was named Acumatica's new CEO.[18] Acumatica launched its xRP Cloud Platform 2 months later.[19] In the fall of 2014, Acumatica released the beta version of its new suite, Acumatica 5.0.[20] Around the same time, Acumatica secured over $13 million in funding in an effort led by MYOB.[21]

In January 2018 Kirill Tatarinov, a longtime 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.[22]

In June 2018, Acumatica secured a $25 million Series C round of funding led by Accel-KKR, a Silicon Valley technology-focused investment firm.[23] 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.

Awards and recognition[edit]

In 2012, Acumatica was named a Top 100 Global Finalist by Red Herring[24] and number 1 in the Top 20 Coolest Cloud Vendors by CRN.[25] Gleanster also labeled Acumatica the best SMB CRM suite in all four of its categories: Ease of Deployment, Ease of Use, Features/Functionality, and Overall Value.[26]

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.[27] Acumatica was a finalist for the 2013 SIIA Software CODiE Awards for Best Supply Chain Management Solution,[28] and it was also recognized as one of the top 50 Russian start-ups of the year.[29]

In 2014, Acumatica won a Gold Stevie in the "New Product or Service of the Year" category for its Cloud Platform.[30] Acumatica was awarded a SIIA Software CODiE Award in May of the same year for Best Supply Chain Management Solution.[31]

By August 2017, Acumatica Cloud ERP had received PCMag Editors' Choice Awards for Best ERP Software.[32]

Supported systems[edit]

Acumatica's SaaS offering runs on Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Windows Azure and SQL Azure.[3] Acumatica's licensed software runs on a Microsoft Windows Server with a Microsoft SQL database. Applications run as .NET managed code.[8]
