Acumatica Summit 2020 announcements

More than 2,500 customer, partner, media and analyst participants attended the Acumatica Summit 2020 this year to hear about the company’s latest releases and news. 

A key talking point was the upcoming release of Acumatica 2020 R1, which will be generally available in late March. 2020 R1 highlights include a no-code workflow customisation, where line-of-business end users can quickly and easily customise their workflows using no-code tools, plus Acumatica’s new payroll module which handles certified construction and union payroll needs. 

The 2020 R1 will also have an expense management AI feature, allowing end-users to take a photo of a receipt, from which Acumatica will capture, import, and populate fields.  

Acumatica emphasised that its products will focus on three areas moving forward: user experience, automation, and personalisation. 

Additional announcements at the Summit included Acumatica’s integration with BigCommerce to bring customers both back-office and front-office solutions, as well as its partnership with BatchMaster Software, which will develop new applications on the Acumatica platform that focus on process manufacturing and integrated quality tracking. Acumatica also announced that it has acquired its long-time partner, JAAS Systems

Other milestones were also celebrated at the Summit, including the 6,500th Acumatica customer and the firm’s seventh consecutive year of revenue growth.
