Converting to Acumatica Cloud ERP – A Microsoft Dynamics Consultant Makes the Move to Acumatica

Have you ever wondered what it’s like going from a Microsoft Dynamics legacy product to a Cloud ERP software? Well I’m here to tell you about my experience as I transfer from a Dynamics background to Acumactica Cloud ERP.  For those of you who don’t know what “the Cloud” means, I highly suggest looking up a full explanation on Google, but here is the short way I describe it.  Essentially the Cloud is a sever which allows you to access your information from anywhere even if you’re not on your local machine.

A few weeks ago I was welcomed into the NexVue (now Net at Work) family and was immediately immersed in a product called Acumatica.  From the minute I was introduced to the product I wanted to know how I could learn and understand the foundation of how the software was laid out.  Right away I was given access to the Acumatica Cloud ERP partner portal which was an amazing wealth of knowledge.  Inside the partner portal I was able to start working in the Acumatica University.  The University allowed me to download manuals which corresponded to online classes about the product.

As soon as I opened my first Acumatica PDF manual I made my biggest jump from a Dynamics product to a Cloud-based product. I opened my web browser to access my software!  This by far was the craziest change for me as I’m so use to looking for an icon in my toolbar.  Now I have to train myself that the software is accessed on the web and there is no desktop icon.  This change has taken me a while as I have closed my web browser numerous times by accident.  Once navigating to my Acumactica address, a beautiful picture appeared and I entered my credentials, my Home page opened and I saw a much cleaner layout than the Dynamics products that I have been use to.  I started to poke around inside the software, looking at the navigation bars and trying to understand how the Acumatica structure works.  I quickly realized that following the practice examples inside my user manual was going to lead to my quickest success, along with following the Acumactica training video’s on Vimeo.

This is my first post about my transition into Acumatica Cloud ERP, but I’m going to take you through my learning challenges, the software’s flexibility, and my client experience as I grow inside the Acumatica product.  I looking forward to sharing stories about my challenges and successes inside the Acumatica platform.   Stay tuned for more blog posts.
