Nucleus Research reveals leading ERP Solutions for 2018

The software your business uses provides the foundation for how data is stored, processes are designed, departments communicate and more. It can empower your business to grow at an accelerated rate, maximizing return on investment (ROI), but in some cases it can be the equivalent of a money sucking cement block that weighs your business down . It’s safe to assume no business ever wants to find themselves in the latter situation.

So much of what you hear about enterprise resource planning (ERP) software is geared towards convincing you to buy the solution, and as the buyer often you can feel burdened with the responsibility of trying to sift through the facts to figure out which solutions actually provide the most value, and are the best fit for your business. That can be a lot. Working with a trusted solutions partner is an essential step towards making this assessment, but in addition to that you can depend on research conducted by third party, fact-driven institutions such as Nucleus Research or Aberdeen. These third parties provide neutral assessments of market-leading ERP solutions to help you determine what the best options are.

Acumatica is set apart for its high usability and flexibility, along with steady improvements that have already been made, and will continue to be made to each of its vertical solutions with the aim of increasing customer satisfaction. These improvements largely stem from direct feedback that Acumatica receives regularly from its customers, enabling them to quickly address the wants and needs of the people that are actually using their solution.

This doesn’t automatically mean that Acumatica is the best solution for every business across any industry, it simply means that across the board it is a market leader. In order to determine the best solution for your business it is always recommended that you undergo a discovery with a solutions partner, to conduct a detailed investigation into your business needs and goals to best determine the optimal solution for you.
