Acumatica 5.0 Takes Mobile Functionality to a Whole New Level
Last week, we took a look at the features of the recently released Acumatica 5.0, which is the newest release of Acumatica’s cloud business management software. Learn more about this by visiting here. One of the key features we discussed was Acumatica 5.0’s mobile functionality. Let’s take a closer look at these mobility capabilities.
Although Acumatica has always been browser-based and has functioned online with ease, it was limited, until now, in terms of being able to leverage and use all of the features of your smartphone. Nothing beats adding a native app which is now available through Acumatica 5.0 and gives a far better user experience. It is also another way to generate revenue and has more usable capabilities than ever.
Acumatica believes that mobility is another opportunity to generate revenue streams because it meets the needs of customers, and customers are using mobile devices more than ever before. Acumatica 5.0 is all about usability. It was designed to work on any device and on any browser. It has an HTML5 standards-based UI designer that allows companies to build personalities and brand straight into existing business systems. In the past, a specialist would have been needed to create mobile applications that synced with Acumatica, but this is no longer the case. Now, Acumatica has a new mobile development framework that makes it easy without the need for a developer or specialist to be involved. Let’s dive deeper into the mobile application’s features.
Acumatica App Overview
The Acumatica App is included in the Acumatica 5.0 release. This app works on both iPhones and Android phones. It offers a totally new framework that allows partners, developers, and ISVs to create new mobile applets. These mobile applets will function transparently across all supported Acumatica mobile platforms.
