More Companies Switch from NetSuite to Acumatica for Cloud ERP


Jewelry wholesaler J.Goodin joins other companies that switched from NetSuite to Acumatica to gain better performance, eliminate vendor lock-in, and integrate with on-premise systems.

BETHESDA, Md., April 20, 2011 – Acumatica, a provider of Cloud ERP software today announced that more mid-sized business customers have upgraded to modern web-based software without losing control of their data and their costs. Several customers are switching from NetSuite to Acumatica in order to gain deployment flexibility, eliminate vendor lock-in, select upgrade times, integrate with on-premise systems, and control where their data is stored. Customers that switch to Acumatica can choose to deploy the application on-premise or as SaaS, and pay an upfront license or an annual subscription.

J.Goodin, a fashion jewelry manufacturer and distributor, switched from NetSuite to Acumatica to improve transaction processing speed during the busy holiday period without being locked-in to recurring SaaS license payments.

“Acumatica provided a web-based solution that we could install on-premise and integrate with other on-premise systems,” said Jay Cheng, CEO of J.Goodin, Inc. “We gained on-the-go access to data without being locked into recurring payments or losing control of our data.”

J.Goodin implemented Acumatica to centralize global processes using a system that can be accessed by worldwide users without the burden of installing and maintaining client software. The Acumatica software manages multiple distribution processes for J.Goodin including build-to-order, drop-ship, and build-to-stock. Salespeople enter orders directly into Acumatica while Acumatica’s integration tools accept electronic sales from J.Goodin’s network of wholesalers, retailers, and online properties.

J.Goodin purchased Acumatica after unsuccessful attempts to utilize both NetSuite and SAP Business One. NetSuite was selected because it provided access from anywhere, but slow computations, lack of reliability, and ineffective support led J.Goodin to look for an alternative. After purchasing SAP Business One, J.Goodin was unable to get the system implemented for several months so the project was abandoned and Acumatica was selected and implemented.

“Many businesses such as J.Goodin are moving off SaaS-only solutions to implement Acumatica Cloud ERP,” said Ezequiel Steiner, CEO of Acumatica. “After using NetSuite, many customers want to regain control of where they place their data, when they upgrade, and how they pay for their software.”
