Paramount WorkPlace is proud to be a founding member of acu-connect, an organization founded to promote education, collaboration, networking, and shared resources around Acumatica add-on solutions.
acu-connect has been in the works since May of 2018, when a group of top Acumatica ISVs including APS Payments, Avalara, DSD, StarShip, DataSelf, NetStock, and more (see the complete list of founding members here) got together to brainstorm ways to increase knowledge throughout the Acumatica community. We’ve been in it from the very start, and we’re excited about how far the group has come and where it’s going!
Member companies like ourselves have been in close communication with Acumatica, as Acumatica has been a big supporter of the effort. The soft launch of acu-connect included a well-attended introduction session presented during Acumatica Summit in January, and Acumatica has participated in calls with the group’s leadership to help them define areas and strategies to best benefit the ecosystem.
We’re planning to use this opportunity to engage with users and partners and use that feedback to plan our product roadmap strategically to solve the pain points members express related to procurement.
We’re also using this platform to address some of the common questions we’re hearing from Acumatica users and partners pertaining to procurement that we’re hearing in forums, at user events, and during product demonstrations.
Some of the ways we’ve contributed to the group (aside from the time we’ve volunteered to launch the effort) include:
- Blog content contributions:
- Create a Smart and Efficient Requisition Approval Process for Acumatica
- How (and Why) to Integrate PunchOut with Acumatica
- Joint solutions presentations with other founding members:
- Grow Your Business Faster with Instant Visibility to Data in Acumatica (watch the recording here)
While acu-connect is still in its early phases, we believe it is going to grow to be a highly valuable part of the Acumatica community, and we’re honored to be part of it!
