However, Acumatica 2023 R2 introduces a more efficient solution - a single, central area for allocating and deallocating orders and inventory. This streamlining allows for optimized resource allocation and enhanced customer satisfaction.

And that's just the beginning - Acumatica has plans to extend this integration to the UK and Mexico as well. This broader reach empowers businesses to expand their horizons and engage with a more diverse and global customer base.




Seamless Shopify Integration



E-commerce retailers know that the Shopify platform offers an array of tools and features to enhance online selling. Acumatica is taking the complexity out of integrating your Shopify store with your ERP system. Within Acumatica, a Shopify hierarchy is introduced, which includes a "customer type" field. 



When set for an organization, this feature allows you to seamlessly sync all the hierarchy in Shopify with customers and contacts inside Acumatica. This synchronization ensures that you can maintain a consistent and up-to-date flow of information between your e-commerce platform and your business operations.
