Comparing Acumatica Pricing Options: What You Need to Know

Are you in the market for an enterprise resource planning (ERP) system? If so, you’ve probably heard about Acumatica. Unlike many traditional ERP vendors, the company is known for its flexible pricing structure, which makes it a popular choice for small and medium-sized businesses. But how exactly does Acumatica pricing work? In this article, we’ll explain everything you need to know about Acumatica pricing options.


Modules required

The cost of Acumatica cloud ERP is determined in part by the specific modules or applications and features you select. Acumatica Cloud ERP offers a wide range of applications to help businesses manage their finances, customer relationships, projects, data, manufacturing, distribution, servicing, and online sales.

When buying Acumatica, you can choose to focus on certain aspects of an ERP system, or go all-in from the get-go, as the cost is dependent on the modules and features that you select. This allows for a flexible approach to scaling up your business.


License type

Another key factor that affects the price of Acumatica Cloud ERP is the license type you choose. There are three ways to buy Acumatica, each with its own unique licensing costs:

  • Software as a Service (SaaS) subscription: You pay an annual subscription fee to use the software on a public cloud. This license is typically the most cost-effective as the cloud is shared by multiple users.
  • Private cloud subscription: This option is more suitable for organizations with strict data governance requirements. With this license, you pay an annual fee to run the software on your own servers or through a third-party hosting provider, who runs your ERP application on a dedicated server.
  • Private cloud perpetual license: you buy the software to run it on your own hardware or through a hosting provider and pay an annual maintenance fee for access to continuous software updates and bug fixes. Though the upfront cost for this type of license is highest, for some users it also delivers the lowest total cost of ownership.


Projected transaction volume/consumption-based pricing

The next factor that affects the pricing of your Acumatica Cloud ERP solution is the amount of data storage and computing power your business needs. Your projected transaction volume will play a part in the pricing to ensure that you end up with a solution that has the capabilities to help you achieve your goals.

Figuring out the amount of transaction volume you’ll need can be difficult to do on your own. Fortunately, our Acumatica experts can help you find the fit that’s perfect for you and your business.

As with the applications, the Acumatica pricing model gives you flexibility here as well. You can purchase as much or as little as you need.

Acumatica ERP Software Implementation Costs

ERP implementation costs for Acumatica ERP differ from licensing-specific costs. The implementation costs for Acumatica usually range from 1.5 to twice the amount of the software. Numerous factors can influence this price.

Implementation involves setting up Acumatica for your organization based on your specific requirements, which typically requires help from third-party partners and can take a few months to a year to complete, depending on the complexity of the project.

Before beginning the project, Acumatica's partners, such as Intelligent Technologies, Inc., will provide you with a cost estimate based on various aspects, including the size of the company, the project's complexity, whether customization is needed, and the amount of training your team needs.



Acumatica offers a flexible and customizable pricing model that caters to the unique needs of various organizations. With a variety of licensing options and industry-specific editions, companies can select the package that best suits their needs. Additionally, implementation costs and maintenance fees are dependent on several factors, including company size, complexity of implementation, and need for customization and training.
