Why I Love the Search Feature in Acumatica Cloud ERP

It is so easy to find information in Acumatica.

How often do you need to quickly find a customer account number, a vendor number, or inventory item number in your financial system? Sometimes a client is waiting on the phone for your answer while you scroll through lists.

It is much faster if you have a system that predicts what information you want as soon as you start typing and shows results quickly.

Of course I have used Microsoft Dynamics GP for years. There is a great add on tool available from Rockton that allows you to quickly find information as you type.

But in Acumatica this feature is embedded in the core system.

One of my favorite things about using Acumatica is the ability to quickly find what you are looking for. For example, notice the inventory screen in the example below. Just by typing “AC” into the lookup window you can see that the system has found that occurrence not only in the inventory item, but in the description. It shows me all the choices, quickly.


The other thing I love is that you can customize these windows. I can move any of the columns, adjust the width or location, and the next time I open this window it will look the same for me.

I can actually click on the little file folder next to inventory ID and if there are additional columns available for this window that aren’t currently being displayed, I can add those to my screen.

I have the ability to change the grid on a lookup window in Acumatica, as well as all the other core screens, without buying an add on product. To me, this is just one of the small features that makes Acumatica so easy to use.
