You have decided to find a new ERP. You have engaged vendors, done research, and watched demos. Are you thinking what we are thinking… it is nearly impossible to figure out what the REAL differences are between Acumatica and SyteLine ERP. They seem to do the same thing. We see you. We hear you. And, we are going to share the low down with you.
Here is the scoop: if you have plans to significantly grow, you NEED to select SyteLine ERP over Acumatica. If not, you will be replacing Acumatica within 18 months. You will not ‘outgrow’ SyteLine ERP.
Why will you outgrow Acumatica? Here is the list of reasons we see often:
- Subscription Pricing: SyteLine pricing is easy to understand. It is a per user per month price. The application includes virtually everything your business will ever need: enterprise-wide Document Management and enterprise-wise Analytics – not just for ERP data – the included platforms can be used for ANY document in your organization and ANY data source that you need analytics. The SyteLine subscription also includes a world class integration platform and even a tool set for you to build your own apps for your customers. Do you have to use it in the beginning? No, but when you grow, you can increase your adoption without a big project or additional spend. Grow with it. With Acumatica, you will be buying 3rd party add ons and deal with a complex, unpredictable pricing structure.
- Reporting: With Acumatica, you need a developer to build reports. Reports are difficult to build, slow to generate, and impossible to do as an end user. With SyteLine, any end user can create reports with graphs and charts on ANY field in the application. Of course, SyteLine has role based security but it is seriously easy to turn reports into KPIs.
- Manufacturing: SyteLine excels in complex manufacturing As you grow, manufacturing needs to be flexible and enable automation. Think CPQ, automatic scheduling changes in sub routings, immediate all-level BOM changes, costing code flexibility… all things Acumatica requires DYI customizations to solve.
- Support and Bugs: SyteLine support is the best ERP support in the ecosystem. Responsive and proactive team with detailed help videos and documentation. If you read any Acumatica online reviews, you can hear it directly from users – support and the number of bugs impacts their ability to be successful with the solution.
With all the effort to get a new ERP, if you are like us, you don’t want to find another ERP in 18 months. Trust us, we see it way too often, grow with Infor SyteLine ERP. No regrets.
