What makes this newest version of Acumatica worthy of fanfare? Two words: “continuous release.”
After much anticipation, cloud-based business management software provider, Acumatica, announced the launch of Acumatica 6 and with it, a new “continuous release” process with all updates delivered directly to users upon completion.
Acumatica 6 promises new product and technology enhancements that include substantial improvements to performance, mobility and integration capabilities.
“At Acumatica, we’re committed to midmarket customers and partners, whose rapid growth requires flexible, scalable, cost-effective tools,” said Jon Roskill, CEO of Acumatica. “Acumatica 6’s substantial technical improvements further our pragmatic performance, mobility, and integration capabilities.”
New features will include:
- Integrated CRM - Acumatica Add-in for Microsoft Outlook
With this add-in, customers can view details on lead and contact records that already exist in Acumatica ERP, create new leads and contacts inside Microsoft Outlook, and customize the appearance of the Acumatica ribbon button in accordance with a company's branding.
- Dashboards with large selection of visualizations and pivot tables
Management and configuration of dashboards have been significantly enhanced making it far more convenient to add new dashboards, manage existing dashboards, and configure widgets on dashboards, even from mobile devices.
- Embedded Microsoft Power BI
With this release, Acumatica is the first ERP provider to support embedded Microsoft Power BI components and is now the first to make Microsoft Outlook Add-in commercially available.
- Contract-based REST API
New, contract-based representational state transfer (REST) application programming interface (API) makes it easier to create and test requests directly from a web browser without the custom libraries or special wrappers required for the SOAP API.
