Now’s the Time to Move Up from Dynamics SL to Acumatica

Acumatica vs Dynamics SL Comparison Migration

Are you contemplating a migration from Microsoft Dynamics SL to Acumatica Cloud ERP? Now is the perfect time to make the move.

If you are running an older version of SL, such as SL 2011 or SL 2015, support has already run out. If you have the latest version of Dynamics SL, SL 2018, mainstream support is scheduled to end in July 2023. Even if you decide to wait it out, you are just delaying the inevitable. Sooner or later, you will be forced to choose a newer, better, and most likely cloud-based ERP solution. There's a case to be made for making a move sooner rather than later and a strong case for moving to Acumatica Cloud ERP.

The cloud has come into its own. Cloud computing is not just a peek into the future; it's here now. With early fears about cloud ERP resolved, business leaders around the globe are moving, and it's happening fast. If you have concerns about keeping up with the competition or dealing with access issues or cyberattacks, you can't afford to be saddled with an outdated, unsupported legacy ERP.

ERP technology has made tremendous advances over the past ten years. Modern cloud ERP solutions can deliver functions and benefits that were undreamt of a decade ago. If you are looking to grow your business, now is the time to get on board.

Benefits of migrating from Dynamics SL to Acumatica:

  • State-of-the-art software

Are you running unsupported legacy software on out-of-date Windows servers? Is your IT team telling you it's becoming a nightmare? If you have custom reports, screens, and processes that need to be upgraded, your money would be better spent on moving to a modern ERP with a longer life expectancy.

  • Remote access

Especially now, many employees are working remotely or need remote access from the field. That's just not possible with your Dynamics SL on-premises solution.  Empower your entire workforce with Acumatica's anytime/anywhere access.

  • Readily available technical support

Fewer technicians, especially the sizeable millennial workforce, will work on legacy systems. If you want support, you'll have to go where the help is. And that's in the Cloud. Younger techs are frustrated with the outdated interface of Dynamics SL. They want to be able to work on phones, tablets, and non-Windows devices.

  • Easy migration

Migrating to Acumatica is easy for Dynamics SL users because there are similar features and functions.

  • Attractive pricing

Acumatica's pricing is fair, and it allows unlimited users. Rather than Dynamics SL's per-user licensing, Acumatica's costs are resource-priced. Add as many additional users as you like at no extra cost.

  • Customizable technology

Acumatica's Cloud xRP platform means you can do more. Fully customizable technology and .NET code allow the system to scale with your business and deliver optimal performance 24/7. Automatic feature-rich updates are performed every six months, so you can be confident of always having the latest version.

  • Abundant free training

Acumatica wants your employees to be comfortable and get the most out of the system. That is why they offer comprehensive, free training on-demand at the Acumatica Open University.
