Who is Acumatica?

optimized-Acumatica_Logo_FullColor_RGB

Who is Acumatica? A lot of the focus usually goes on what a company like this does or what it can provide. What makes Acumatica different from other companies is that it goes beyond just what services it provides.

Acumatica was founded in 2008 in the city of Bellevue, WA. The company quickly grew and received recognition almost right away. In 2009 on-premises and SaaS software versions were released and then in 2010 distribution software came into play. Shortly after they were beginning to receive awards, and the company that you know today, was getting a name for itself. Acumatica is currently the fastest-growing Cloud ERP Company with offices all over the world in countries like Thailand, South Africa, and the UK.

The founders of Acumatica are Mike Chtchelkinogov and Solomon Software co-founders Serguei Beloussov and John Howell. Jon Roskill, the CEO of the company pushes the company to provide, and to grow. This means for each person in the company, and for each customer of the company.

Some of the recognition Acumatica has received dates back to 2012 when the company was named a Top 100 Global Finalist by Red Herring, and later on also being first in the Top 20 Coolest Cloud Vendors by CRN. Acumatica has been the best software publisher that we have worked with. They go above and beyond to meet needs, exceed expectations, and dive headfirst into the technological advancements in our time. We trust Acumatica and know that they are a company that will continue to succeed.
