Now you know when the event is and how to register for it, but you’re still missing the why. As in, “Why should you attend the Acumatica 2020 R2 Virtual Launch Event?” We here at acu-connect are here to help you answer that.

5 Great Reasons to Attend the Acumatica 2020 R2 Virtual Launch Event

1. Get your sneak peek Of course, the main reason why everyone attends the R2 Launch Events is to get a sneak peek into what’s coming next for Acumatica. This year, registrants will get an in-depth look at the latest business benefits and functionality enhancements to the Acumatica Cloud ERP and Acumatica Cloud xRP platform, including improvements to:

  • Reporting
  • Financials
  • CRM
  • Inventory and Order Management
  • Payroll
  • Project

In addition, the Acumatica team will reveal enhanced capabilities for all of their industry editions, including:

  • Commerce
  • Construction
  • Distribution
  • Manufacturing
  • Field Service

2. Understand why analysts and customers love Acumatica This year, every business leader across the globe has realized the extreme importance of running a seamless digital business, and leaders are using their digital resources harder than ever before. With that context in place, you can see why Acumatica’s phenomenal summer 2020 rankings from G2, and top marks from IDC and Nucleus Research truly demonstrate the sheer power of Acumatica Cloud ERP. In just the past few months, Acumatica has been named:

  • A leader in the G2 Grid Report for ERP systems (out of 51 systems), G2
  • The #1 Momentum Leader for ERP systems (out of 43 competing ERPs), G2
  • The leader in mid-market ERPs, G2
  • The #1 distribution ERP software, G2
  • A leader for worldwide SaaS midmarket ERP applications (beating Microsoft, Oracle NetSuite, and Sage Intacct), IDC
  • A leader in ERP technology value (ahead of Sage X3, Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central, and SAP Business One), Nucleus Research

In that time, Acumatica has also received top scores for usability and ease of use from G2, and IDC showed the Cloud ERP as excelling in Innovation, Industry Focus, and Sophistication. Wow! 3. Get a leg up on your competitors Since the Acumatica 2020 R2 Virtual Launch Event grants you the first glimpse into the latest enhancements, you can use the launch information to start planning your next steps and gain the competitive edge. Remember, Acumatica doesn’t simply use their events to wax eloquent about great features that are coming someday in the future (like some other ERPs do). Instead, the Launch Event clearly explains the brand-new features available that day.  Part of what the Acumatica team will be talking about on the morning of September 16 is how you can leverage the streamlined user experience and latest Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning features to work smarter, not harder. And that means you can spend the afternoon of September 16 planning how to use your ERP’s new capabilities to get ahead of your competitors. 4. Start strategizing with other big product news In addition to the exciting R2 Launch information, you can bet that Acumatica will have big product news to announce. If you’re there at the Launch Event, you’ll be one of the first in the know. If you’re not there at the Launch Event… well, I guess you’ll just have to hear the news secondhand from your competitors. Bummer. 5. Stay connected Even though this year’s event is virtual, you can count on the Acumatica team, their partners, and the third-party solution developers to make themselves available for questions, comments, and check-ins – just like they would be at the face-to-face events. As you know, presence is a force multiplier in the business world – so make your presence known by attending the 2020 R2 Virtual Launch Event.

What’s Stopping You from Attending the R2 Launch Event?

Usually, the exciting Acumatica R2 Launch Events happen in a roadshow format, when the Acumatica team takes to the road to meet up with partners, developers, customers, and enthusiasts to chat face to face and build strong relationships. If you don’t live near one of the many roadshow stops or you simply don’t have the time to travel, you may have missed previous R2 Launch Events. This year, you don’t have to miss a thing.  The quick, informative Acumatica 2020 R2 Virtual Launch Event takes just about as much time as a meeting – yet it delivers far more info than probably any meeting you’ve attended yet this year. So, what’s stopping you from registering for the event? To recap, it’s free, it’s fast, it’s fun and exciting, and if you unexpectedly find yourself with a sudden commitment at precisely the same time as the event, registrants can watch the on-demand version at a time that’s convenient for them.
