Keep your Acumatica ERP solution up-to-date with Acumatica’s Always Current Program. With the Acumatica Always Current Program, users can access the latest updates, features, and enhancements of the Acumatica ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) system.

This program provides customers with continuous updates to Acumatica software, such as new functionality, bug fixes, security updates, and regulatory compliance updates. Always Current ensures that customers have access to the latest version of the software without having to undergo time-consuming and expensive upgrades. Staying current will decrease maintenance costs and improve system functionality.

How Does the Acumatica Always Current Program Work?

The Always Current Program upgrades Acumatica customers to the most recent version of their software on a scheduled upgrade date. Additionally, they will automatically receive software updates on a fixed quarterly schedule. The scheduled upgrade date will be set at the onset of the contract.

A notification will be sent to customers 120 days before the upgrade takes place. The notification will provide the customer with details of the upgrade plan. It is recommended that customers prepare their staff with a timeframe and schedule for testing.

The Always Current Program will complete the upgrade in two phases. The first step is to set up a testing version so that any additional tasks can be accomplished. As soon as the testing period is completed, Acumatica will seek approval from the customer, and the official upgrade will take place.

Eligibility

Acumatica SaaS customers qualify for Always Current based on their Acumatica edition. Currently, this program is not available to private cloud customers (PCS and PCP).

Customizations & Integrations

To reduce potential upgrade issues, the program limits the types of customizations installed.

Customers in this program can only install ISV solutions compatible with the Always Current Program. As a result, they will be able to deliver their solutions on or before the deadline for upgrades or updates.

Support with Always Current

As well as continuous software updates, the Always Current program also includes access to Acumatica’s support team, which can assist with any issues or questions.

A major advantage of the Acumatica Always Current program is that it enables businesses to stay up-to-date with their ERP software and ensure that they are getting the most out of their investment.

Our team recently presented an overview of the Always Current Program. To learn more about the details and the process, watch the recording here. Contact our support team for more information about Acumatica Always Current.

Specialty contractors often provide subcontractor work by using their own equipment. This creates a complex, multiple tiered need for integration between the technician, accounting and the customer. The ability to provide efficient and high-quality service to your customers gives you an advantage over the competition.

But now you can streamline your field operations with a strong software platform, such as Acumatica. By integrating accounting and payroll with the teams in the field, your company delivers proven efficiencies for employees and customers. Here are some key areas where the right tech tool will significantly improve your customer satisfaction levels with regards to field service management. In this article, you will learn how to improve profits and customer satisfaction with Acumatica.

Mobility in the field

Often, companies who provide service work don’t have a mobile solution for their technicians, meaning clipboards and paperwork are the reality. Eliminating paperwork for time sheets and service work really reduces the risk of double entry errors occurring. Mobility also means every piece of documentation presented to your customer digitally shows the customer a commitment to service excellence.

Imagine the time-savings when a technician in the field, working on a piece of equipment can log time and locate tools just from a smartphone or tablet. What a great way to impress customers with prompt and comprehensive service.

Maximizing field technicians’ time

Routine and preventative maintenance can be scheduled in advance to maximize your technicians’ time. But things come up to upset that schedule all the time. Emergencies must take priority over regularly scheduled service work which can make juggling your technician’s time challenging. Vehicles, tools and inventory need to be available when and where they’re needed. What if your dispatch team could see responses to emergencies and route the technicians for any change in priorities? Yet another way you to generate customer loyalty.

Prompt and accurate invoicing

Billing in a timely manner means you get paid in a timely manner. A full integration between field operations and accounting is so important for this reason. That same mobility that we spoke of before comes into play here. With an integrated solution, field service teams can submit completed jobs immediately to accounting from the field. Enabling your office team to have the information in real-time and turn around accurate invoices fast.

The company that embraces field service work will leverage it as a profit center. Acumatica Field Service is a comprehensive system that is highly customizable. Get scheduling, dispatching, inventory management, accounting, and analysis. Make your field service business effective and deliver the highest level of customer service possible. Because Aktion Associates is a Value-Added Reseller of Acumatica, we’d love to show you this powerful real cloud technology so you can get your field service operations harnessed to make money now and into the future.
