Acumatica Broadens news
Acumatica, the world's fastest-growing cloud ERP company, has broadened its relationship with Shopify by supporting development of the leading eCommerce platform's new business-to-business (B2B) solution. Merchants can use Shopify's solution to manage B2B and direct-to-consumer (DTC) stores in a single platform.

The new solution builds on Acumatica's native Shopify integration, which allows merchants to manage their back-office within Acumatica's ERP while creating an exceptional customer experience on the Shopify front-end. With Shopify's new solution, merchants can manage their entire B2B omnichannel sales experience in a unified solution that combines all essential business data without the need for manual data entry.

"Our ongoing partnership with Shopify has allowed us to provide our customers with innovative business management solutions that help them scale their online and in-store retail operations, We worked closely with Shopify to develop a B2B solution that would seamlessly integrate with Acumatica Cloud ERP. The integration is designed to deliver a truly streamlined buying experience to wholesalers and their buyers."

-Josh Fischer, director of product management at Acumatica.
Acumatica and Shopify's strategic relationship provides regular product developments and joint solutions that enable customer growth and seamless user experiences through online and POS sales channels. In 2020, Acumatica announced a robust integration to Shopify which simplifies the connection to Shopify's leading eCommerce application. In 2021, Shopify announced the launch of a Global ERP Program to meet the needs of larger merchants by directly connecting their back-office ERP solutions (including Acumatica) to their Shopify stores. The connection between the two systems creates one unified business management solution. Shopify's provides outstanding buying experiences and Acumatica provides inventory management, automated fulfillment, and accurate accounting solutions. Together, the solution is a comprehensive eCommerce enabled ERP solution for helping merchants grow faster.

"Our merchants have indicated their desire to sell wholesale and direct to consumers from one online store, To meet this growing demand, we've worked to build powerful features that B2B merchants need directly into the Shopify platform. Acumatica has added value to Shopify customers by enabling them to manage and grow both sides of their businesses from one unified solution."

-Mani Fazelli, director of product, B2B at Shopify.
The Shopify B2B solution will be available to Acumatica customers in two phases. Phase one will be complete in September 2022 as part of the company's semiannual product update. Phase two will be complete in Q1 2023.

Radiance Technologies Switches to Unanet for GovCon ERP and CRM

Unanet | September 30, 2022

Unanet, the leading provider of project-based ERP and CRM for government contractors (GovCon), today announced that Radiance Technologies, a Huntsville, Ala.-based firm that develops solutions for defense, intelligence and civilian clients like the U.S. Army and U.S. Airforce, is replacing its legacy ERP system with Unanet GovCon ERP and CRM to provide a robust end-to-end solution that will help streamline processes and reduce manual errors in their business. Radiance has already started an implementation plan that Unanet tailored to fit their needs.After an annual review of all its business and technology tools, Radiance, an employee-owned company with approximately 1,000 employees, determined that its legacy ERP provider was actually making their business processes more cumbersome and less efficient for their team.Our previous system included multiple software tools, but none of them were fully integrated and automated. As a result, we were spending a lot of time taking data out of one system through downloads, and entering or importing it into another system, said Paige Nix, chief financial officer at Radiance. Radiance's teams also experienced difficulties with functionality and technical issues such as upgrades that were hastily rolled out with errors in them.After a search and review process for an enterprise-wide system, Radiance chose Unanet GovCon ERP and CRM for its ability to fully integrate and automate multiple tools with low implementation and maintenance time. In addition, Radiance received multiple referrals about Unanet from companies who shared how Unanet's customer service team listened and turned feedback into actionable results. "We fully expect Unanet to make our processes more efficient through integration and automation, reduce the amount of time required to enter and review data and create smoother internal processes and workflows,For example, getting consultants and subcontractors to input their purchase order/invoice data into an efficient system will ensure all costs incurred each month are captured in our invoices. This will enhance our speed and visibility to project actuals -- creating one efficient solution for our subcontractors/consultants and our accounting team." Paige Nix, chief financial officer at Radiance According to a recent annual survey of more than 1,100 GovCon customers, Unanet users are seeing a significant decrease in day sales outstanding (DSO) simply because of the reduction in errors that Unanet's ERP solution provides. More than 14% of users reported a DSO of 15 days or less. More than 2,000 fast-growing GovCon companies have selected Unanet GovCon ERP and CRM because the solutions have the right mix of functionality and accessibility, while also offering the ability to scale and grow seamlessly.
