How Much Does Acumatica Cost
Posted on: May 6, 2019 | By: Jim Bertler | Acumatica
If you want to understand “How Much Does Acumatica Cost” there are some key considerations and questions you need to answer. The biggest difference between Acumatica and every other ERP solution is that the cost of Acumatica is not based on users. So how do you arrive at a cost for Acumatica?
Acumatica Cost – Core Functionality
The first question is core functionality. You need to decide what portions of the system you will utilize, such as financial management, distribution management, are you a manufacturer and indeed need the manufacturing functionality? There are also areas like customer service, customer relationship management, and integration to Office 365 that are potential add-ons as well. Acumatica has done a good job organizing these into suites like Distribution Suite or Manufacturing Suite to make things simple.
Acumatica Cost – Transaction Volume
Once you determine the core functionality, the next thing you need to determine is your transaction volume. What Acumatica’s looking for here is the highest transaction volume you have in any given area. For example, if you take outbound invoices, you will need to understand how many invoices you send monthly. This isn’t an exact measurement like an old-fashioned cell phone plan. It’s more of a guidance to determine the level of resources you will need to ensure your solutions runs well.
Acumatica Cost – Deployment
Once you understand the transaction volume, the last piece to determine how much Acumatica costs is the deployment option. Acumatica offers three different deployment options. They are cloud, what’s called PCP, which is where you could have somebody host the cloud version for you. For example, if you have a data center that you really like and want to use, and lastly, you can deploy in on-premises fashion. Most people do deploy via Acumatica’s hosted cloud model, but you do have all three options, and you could move from one option to the other once you’ve already deployed.
Again, the biggest difference you’ll find with the cost of Acumatica compared to other options is that Acumatica does not base the price of the product on number of users. Most ERP systems and CRM systems determine their cost by the number of users you’re going to license. Acumatica doesn’t use that approach, which is quite helpful in that you don’t decide whether or not somebody’s going to use the system based upon cost. If you have the system, you can add as many users to it as you like, which really allows you to open the functionality of the system to everyone in the organization.
