The advanced planning features have been improved to provide capable-to-promise and what-if scenarios to help you improve both planning and communication with customers. Answer their questions with ease and promise only what you can deliver by using the new predictive features.
New and Emerging Technologies to Watch
Acumatica also tracks new and emerging technologies to watch so they can provide customers with the best product experience. At the Acumatica Summit, company leaders discussed the role of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) and its possible role in future rollouts of Acumatica. AI and ML are both useful for predictive, prescriptive, and automated outcomes. For example, it can be used in image recognition. Weather tracking is another option, with Acumatica integrated with ClimaCell service to enable managers to review jobs in the queue and compare them to weather conditions to assess feasibility. Lastly, for those working internationally, translation capabilities are improving.
Other areas that Acumatica is watching with keen interest include robotics, especially its impact upon warehousing automation. Robotics offers greater efficiency in the realm of warehouse management but it can be cost prohibitive for smaller warehouses. As demand for robot-based picking and inventory management grows, companies like Acumatica know they have to be on top of the trends to ensure they give their customers the best future rollouts and updates.
Acumatica offers so much in one software package and with each edition it gets better and better. Many software companies tinker with their products, much to the annoyance of their customers. Acumatica customers actually look forward to the next update because the company keeps making the software better and better. The open API and many partnerships Acumatica builds with developers ensures that the company’s products provide the ultimate in convenience and service for their customers.
