Acumatica is constantly looking to innovate. They are driven by the desire to improve efficiency, and make your work day easier and more informed. They strongly believe their product should be both pragmatic and easy-to-use.  With Acumatica 6, they continue to deliver on that promise. Everyone knows Acumatica is a full service suite, bringing together every aspect of your business from finance, to sales and marketing, shipping and receiving, and service management. Acumatica can service every area of your company. But what if Acumatica became even easier to use and at the same time make your work life simpler and more productive? These, among other guiding principles, are what have driven the upcoming launch of Acumatica 6 and the Acumatica CRM Outlook Add-In.

This is where the new Acumatica CRM Outlook Add-In comes in. The Acumatica CRM Outlook Add-In will empower your business to be more agile, efficient, and to dramatically increase the productivity of each individual in your organization.

With the newest version of Acumatica, you’ll see major improvements in three areas related to analytics. 1. Self-service dashboards and unique KPIs Acumatica’s new dashboards will remind you of something we’re all familiar with — arranging your apps on the home screen of your phone. The self-service dashboards are incredibly customizable by user, thanks to the responsive design mode that Acumatica created. You’ll be hard-pressed to find this type of functionality in any other ERP platform. The intuitive dashboards and key performance indicators (KPIs) are just some of the new adaptable features.
