One of the most common questions anyone considering a business management or ERP software is going to ask is “how much will this software cost?” There is good reason for asking, but rarely are you going to get a straightforward answer—different modules, different usage, different deployment options—pricing a software with so many moving parts is rarely easy.
The Unique Acumatica Pricing Model: Resource Based, Not User-Based
Whether you are new to the cloud or have been here before, you’ve likely heard of traditional ‘per user’ pricing models that exist, offering an approach to software pricing that treats every user equally. An offshoot of the licensing model, the per-user pricing treats casual users no differently than it would a power user. Acumatica is different.
Modern Pricing for the Modern Business
Acumatica was designed for the modern business. The CFO needs access to reports, suppliers need to access a portal, sales managers need to access CRM, and power users need control of everything—why should you pay the same price for each of these? Acumatica pricing is designed for growing companies like yours. Rather than paying for each user you add, you’ll pay only for the computing resources you actually use.
Three Factors to Determine Price
Acumatica ERP pricing is based on three related factors:
1) Functional Needs
What applications do you want to start using now? Acumatica is designed to be customized, offering a wide range of available options—called Acumatica Editions. Cloud ERP Small Business Edition is going to differ in price from Cloud ERP Advanced Edition or Enterprise Edition, while each industry focused edition will have necessary features as well.
2) Deploy or License?
Acumatica is one of the few options available that was designed (and launched) in the cloud, but allows for traditional on-premises deployment as well. This will factor into your pricing as well, depending on whether you choose SaaS Subscription, Private Cloud Subscription, or Private Perpetual License.
3) Consumption of Resources
Fair pricing isn’t based on users. With Acumatica, you are charged on volume and consumption, giving your firm a fair price each month—rather than charging you even if a user didn’t log on all month.
Fair Pricing, Real Return on Investment
While pricing is important, it’s not nearly as important as how much you get from making the move. With Acumatica, organizations recognize rapid payback and have seen immense ROI.
