Here are benefits of cloud ERP solutions by Acumatica.
Globally-accessible ERP solution
One of the key benefits of Acumatica Cloud ERP is the fact that it can be accessed from anywhere in the world where an Internet connection is available. Compare this with traditional ERP solutions which can only be utilized on company premises.
Remote IT infrastructure
With Acumatica Cloud ERP, companies do not have to be concerned about maintaining expensive and complicated IT hardware in order to run their ERP software solution. Acumatica Cloud ERP is operated off-site in secure data centers. Professional engineers ensure that Acumatica Cloud ERP is operational for and usable by Acumatica customers at all times.
Another key benefit of Acumatica Cloud ERP is that it has developed various and industry-specific editions, including editions for the wholesale and commerce industries.

Why You Need an Industry-Specific ERP Solution
With industry-specific ERP solutions like Acumatica Cloud ERP Wholesale and Commerce Editions, companies immediately see an improvement in business efficiency and productivity.
General ERP solutions require extensive customization and configuration in order for companies to begin using them. One of the reasons for this is that general ERP solutions typically include only features and functionality that are used across all industries, such as creating and tracking purchase orders and invoices.
On the other hand, industry-specific ERP solutions include both the general and advanced features and functionality.
For example, the Acumatica Cloud ERP Wholesale and Commerce Editions integrate modern point of sale (POS) and fulfilment features into the software.
Industry-specific ERP Solutions Scale with Your Business
Acumatica Cloud ERP, with its industry-specific editions, is designed and licensed to scale with your business.
Unique to Acumatica Cloud ERP is its licensing model, which is based on features and functionality used, rather than on the number of users accessing the software. This puts less financial burden on companies as they grow in size since they do not have to purchase a new license for each employee added to the company.
General ERP software solutions require a license for each new user. As such, companies often will not enable new hires to benefit from the ERP solution in order to avoid incurring the additional cost of a license.
Increase Speed, Performance, and Efficiency
Companies that have implemented Acumatica Cloud ERP and have adopted it into their day-to-day business operations see increases in speed, performance, and efficiency.
