This blog reveals some of the changes which are to be expected of Acumatica in the near future. These expectations consist of changes and improvements of Acumatica CRM, Acumatica inventory/order management and finance management.
Acumatica CRM Enhancements
The CRM functionality in Acumatica ERP 2020 R1 will see improvements to the user interface and workflow. You’ll be able to modify the order of inventory items included in an opportunity or quote by dragging lines on the Document Details tab of the Opportunities or Sales Quotes form. Workflow in Opportunities and Cases will also be redesigned so that the system can automatically assign an opportunity to the applicable status based on user actions, instead of having to manually change the status repeatedly. The lead workflow will provide added control over opportunities, leads, and contacts.
Acumatica Inventory and Order Management
New Matrix Items can be used to represent multiple attributes of an inventory item such as, color, size and other forms which are used in many different industries. There is also advanced inventory picking methods, which includes wave picking and batch picking to streamline operations in the warehouse and help route staff more efficiently as they fulfill orders.
Some other inventory and order management changes from Acumatica ERP 2020 R1 include the ability to void and re-create invoices linked to sales orders, upload inventory images from a mobile device through Acumatica ERP web interface and lastly, they’ll be expanding the shipping options.
Financial management will see a variety of time saving and beneficial enhancements in Acumatica ERP 2020 R1. Some of these include, the ability to enter payments for accounts receivable documents by individual lines rather than just the invoice as a whole. There will be a new Cash Account Checks Inquiry to help you determine whether a particular check number has been used and if so, which AP check was it used by. Also, we will see improvements to the fixed assets depreciates calculation engine. Lastly, there will be the ability to release an AR invoice from credit hold if the customer’s credit limit was exceeded.
