(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – Acumatica, the fastest-growing provider of cloud business management software, today launched its mobile development framework, one of several much-anticipated features and functionalities in its 5.0 beta release.
“Unlike other Cloud ERP products, Acumatica orients on helping companies empower their employees,” said CEO Jon Roskill. “For partners, mobility is yet another capability with which they can meet the needs of their customers while opening up new revenue streams.”
Chief Technology Officer Mike Chtchelkonogov said, “You no longer have to be a developer to target the mobile market. In the past, partners may have needed to hire specialists to create iOS or Android applications, but with Acumatica’s new mobile development framework, any of our partners can do it. That’s adding value to our channel.”
Acumatica, which goes to market through a 100%-partner channel of 338 partner companies worldwide including VARs, ISVs, and OEMs, is hosting more than 400 partners at its annual partner summit in Denver this week.
Roskill’s Monday keynote included demos that showcased a new UI look and feel, stronger business functionality, and a better web platform. Among the features unveiled were Single Sign-On, MySQL and Amazon RDS support, multi-warehouse allocation and purchasing, B2B ordering, and Exchange Server integration.
Roskill said, “With 5.0, we’re delivering the kind of advanced warehouse management capabilities Walmart expects to mid-sized businesses. Such advanced capabilities previously available only in million-dollar-plus ERP products is now out-of-the-box functionality in Acumatica.”
The company also announced the availability of a beta Payroll module, adding to its growing list functional areas. The Payroll feature was developed together with partner PC Bennett.
VP of Product Management and Services Ali Jani said, “Usability is our calling card. Acumatica was designed to work on any device and browser, and with our new HTML5 standards-based UI designer, one can build company personalities and brand into their business systems.”
