Acumatica, a leading global provider of cloud enterprise resource Planning (ERP) and financial software, today revealed a successful story of cloud ERP migration, showcasing one of their customers, AME Corporation.
AME Corporation is a manufacturer and distributor/supplier of rubber and plastic components and sealing solutions, with locations in New Jersey and Shanghai, China. Migrating from an older client-server ERP system, AME’s new requirements included a scalable user licensing model, integrated financials, supply chain and document management, multi-user licensing support, and multi-location capabilities all delivered as an integrated cloud solution with built-in contingency planning.
AME’s former ERP solution was Made2Manage, a product that was based on dated technology and could not natively handle distribution. AME reviewed several Cloud ERP solutions and narrowed down its search to two solutions – Acumatica and SAP’s Business by Design.
“Acumatica is a breath of fresh air in the ERP community and is changing the whole landscape in favor of customers. Everyone else has an old-school mindset, even NetSuite, which has remained stuck in a traditional ERP pricing model,” said Ehren Dimitry, president and CEO of AME Corporation. “The scalability of Acumatica far exceeds its competition in terms of the licensing costs. I am not limited by the number of users within Acumatica, and I am no longer penalized for growing my business,” added Dimitry.
Because Acumatica has an open API at the system level, AME worked with Acumatica partner SIPD Services to fully integrate Box.com, AME’s preferred cloud file repository and collaboration service. “Acumatica uses an industry standard platform and development environment, said Gabriel Michaud, co-founder of SIPD Services, based in Quebec. “By working with familiar tools such as Microsoft Visual Studio, I can offer AME Corporation tailored and fully integrated solutions quickly and efficiently. The strong web services and integration capabilities offered by Acumatica and Box allow us to deliver a unique solution that leverages the strengths of these two cloud pioneers and innovators,” added Michaud.
AME has already begun to use many of the Box.com functionalities within Acumatica’s built-in business wikis to preview, access, and share work constructions, ISO 9001 documentations, standard operating procedures, swim-lane flowcharts, and even training materials, in a secure, rights-managed manner.
