Acumatica - thoughts?

We are in the process of evaluating cloud based accounting systems and looking for feedback on the Acumatica solution? I would like to hear what current users of this system think of it and how it compares to other systems they have used. much appreciated!

Where to begin with the Acumatica solution or more realistically, Acumatican't. Acumatica needs extensive customization as it comes with none. The reporting features are lacking and to write your own takes a lot of time and patience. I have used other ERP systems and unless you customize right off the bat, you are headed for trouble. The annual support contracts are astronomical and have found them hard to deal with as they are outsourced mainly in India. Our system was down quite frequently with no eta so we lost hours of work and sales.

I'd highly recommend checking out Xero - it's a very cost effective cloud-based accounting system. The features can be customized by utilizing the add-ons that connect to Xero. For example, if you need more inventory/manufacturing functionality, connect a system like Unleashed. Need an expense approval system? Add on ApprovalMax. There are hundreds of other tools that can connect to Xero to create a very robust financial ecosystem that has the features your company specifically needs.
