We’re pleased to announce that Acumatica Cloud ERP was recognized as one of the winners of the 2021 Stratus Awards for Cloud Computing. As a team, we couldn’t be prouder that our constant push to innovate and add value to our customers’ lives has been recognized by the Business Intelligence Group, a company that has been recognizing and rewarding departments, products, and entire organizations for their innovation and leadership since 2012.
Chief Nominations Officer Maria Jimenez said in the press release, “We now rely on the cloud for everything from entertainment to productivity, so we are proud to recognize all of our winners. Each and every one is helping in their own way to make our lives richer every day.”
What are the Stratus Awards?
The Business Intelligence group released the list of 60 Stratus Awards winners on October 5, 2021. Acumatica Cloud ERP received the Cloud Integrator Award for being “an organization, product or service that is focused on helping customers take existing processes, applications and business operations into the cloud.”
There are 22 Stratus Award categories. The Stratus Awards for Cloud Computing “recognize those companies and individuals innovating in the Cloud and providing offerings that are truly differentiated in the market.” Volunteer judges (who are experts and industry leaders) review nominations and use a proprietary statistical methodology for scoring.
The Business Intelligence Group notes that their judging model is unique because “judges not only score and rank nominations, they also have the opportunity to share public and private feedback so that winners can maximize the third-party acknowledgement of their performance and all nominees can reflect on how they can improve their overall approach to the market.”
Acumatica’s focus on digital transformation and success in the cloud
Businesses in today’s digital economy are waking up to the fact that disconnected, legacy systems are not getting the job done. Without integration between their mission-critical tools, they suffer from siloed information, a lack of collaboration, and the inability to gain real-time business insights from their data. It’s time to connect their business by bringing these tools together onto a single, comprehensive ERP platform with Open APIs and low-code/no-code personalization capabilities. By doing so, they will speed their time to value (e.g., improved efficiency, communication, and visibility into the entire organization) and begin their digital transformation journey.
The Cloud Integrator Award highlights the fact that Acumatica is laser-focused on helping customers digitally transform their disconnected business into a fully connected business with our comprehensive cloud-based ERP solution, thus helping them accelerate their success in the cloud. Acumatica CEO Jon Roskill explains what a real digital transformation should look like:
“A real digital transformation is part-and-parcel of the business; it doesn’t stop with setting the business and its processes on top of the software and moving up a level. It’s being able to grab opportunities as they present themselves because of digital resiliency and business agility. And this resiliency and agility continue to manifest throughout the digital transformation journey.”
The journey is ongoing, but that’s a good thing. Companies must flex with unexpected challenges so that they can continue to grow. Acumatica’s Geoff Ashely, VP, Partner Strategy & Programs, summarizes it well. “Digital transformation is not one product or solution. It is not one event. It is not one strategy. It is an ongoing process that will, for all intents and purposes, become part of your ongoing strategy and investments forever.”
Acumatica customers can be assured that we’ll be with them throughout their digital transformation journey. They can also be assured that we put their interests first in everything we do. Their feedback, such as these Acumatica user reviews, drives the improvements, enhancements, and updates our cloud ERP software receives in our bi-annual releases.
