Acumatica introduces Construction Edition of ERP software
Acumatica, which provides cloud-based enterprise resource planning software, has released Construction Edition, an end-to-end business management system for general contractors, home builders, subcontractors, specialty contractors and land developers.
Acumatica Construction Edition is the latest integrated industry solution from the company, and part of a strategy of expanding into domain-specific workloads. Acumatica also recently released the Commerce Edition, Field Services Edition and Manufacturing Edition of its software.
Acumatica Construction Edition uses the Acumatica Cloud xRP platform and core application suites to also offer project accounting, compliance management, retainage, change orders, job costing and document management. Acumatica Construction Edition is a cloud solution that includes Open API 2.0 standards for creating and maintaining multi-cloud interfaces such as field operations with Procore and Hyphen Solutions, visual scheduling with SmartSheet, productivity tools with Microsoft Office 365, electronic signatures with DocuSign and Adobe, and further integrations with other business applications.
Acumatica cited a recent PwC survey as support for its new offering. According to the report, the construction industry has lagged in adopting new technology, with some companies still using paper-based processes.
“The construction industry at large is still using decades-old technology,” said Acumatica CEO Jon Roskill in a statement. “We know we can make their work easier, more accurate, and more cost effective. Acumatica Construction Edition was built with the same high quality found in the rest of our award-winning ERP suite.”
