Frequently Asked Questions
What is Acumatica SaaS?
SaaS means “software as a service.” It is a popular choice for many modern business products. In Acumatica’s case this means Acumatica is hosted on the cloud, and accessible via an internet connection. Acumatica’s team is responsible for hosting, security, maintenance, and updating the software. You will pay as you go and can cancel, or upgrade, at any time. Acumatica SaaS is a great solution for those without an enterprise IT budget, and who need to access their data from a variety of devices.
How much does Acumatica cost?
Acumatica pricing is determined based on three main factors: which functionality does your business need, what license type do you need (SaaS Subscription, Private Cloud Subscription, or Private Perpetual License), and what is your projected consumption of data and computing power. This is typically determined by the amount of data in your system, as well as how frequently you are using the software. Acumatica pricing comes in small, mid-size, and enterprise tiers and can be customized as needed. Contact us now for a free quote.
How do I know what Resource Level I need to buy?
Acumatica does not charge based on users. Since the system is so robust, it is likely that many employees will need to access different parts of the Acumatica system. Your optimal Resource Level is based on the amount of load your team puts on the system as a whole during peak usage. It’s important that you share your expected transaction volumes and peak time usage patterns with your Acumatica partner so they can advise you on the best possible option. Your Resource Level can always be upgraded as your company grows.
Why should I use Acumatica SaaS (public cloud) instead of a private cloud version and host it on my own?
Acumatica SaaS is hosted on Amazon Web Services (AWS), the most widely used and secure host in the world. In addition, our IT providers are performing constant maintenance, backups, disaster protection, and monitoring on your Acumatica instance. This is backed by our SLA, and surpass the benefits you would gain from most external hosting providers, as well as on-premise hosting managed locally. Please contact your partner for an overview of your options. For private cloud deployments, Acumatica offers Private Cloud Perpetual (PCP) and Private Cloud Subscription (PCS) license models.
