Features and Improvements

2020 R2 contains several improvements and new features. A list of highlights is provided below.

  • Usability:

    • Save time and reduce expenses by automatically creating AP documents from vendor bills

      • Accounts Payable (vendor bills) are scanned. Via Optical Character Recognition (OCR) and AI/Natural Language processing, those scanned vendor bills create automatically vendor bills in the Acumatica ERP. When a vendor bill is emailed by a vendor, you avoid the scanning step. Only the OCR and Natural Language processing step is needed to create automatically the vendor bill in the Acumatica ERP.

      • Enormous benefit: you don't have to enter manually anymore the vendor bill information into your ERP.  The manual entry of all those vendor bills was a tedious chore before. EDI is only done by some companies. B2B Ecommerce vendor bills still had to be manually entered in the ERP. Now all that is done automatically.

    • Save time and reduce expenses by automatically creating expense receipts from receipts captured via your mobile camera application.

      • You have for instance a travel expense (hotel,..) receipt that you want to charge to your company. You open your Acumatica mobile app., you go to expenses, and take a picture of your travel expense receipt. The mobile app will process it, and automatically create an expense receipt in the Acumatica ERP.

      • Benefit: no manual entry of expense receipts. You can submit your receipt immediately upon receiving it.

      • Video.

    • Business events can be created on each document such as Purchase Order, Sales Order, etc

      • A business event such as Customer reached it's credit limit, can be created for a Sales Order. Such a business event can trigger a notification (email, SMS text message,..) to a customer services rep. to call the customer to pay up first outstanding invoices.

      • Video

    • Improved import scenarios.  When a record is not imported, the field in that record is flagged that created the problem. Multi threaded processing can be enabled when you have to import thousands of records.

    • CRM:

      • Pin activities, define your primary contacts and control the recipients for automated emails.

      • Video

  • Financials:

    • Boost cross-company sales by enabling related companies to buy and sell from each other

    • Manage customer visibility with centralized account management

      • If your company has several subsidiaries, and maybe branches within each subsidiary, you can restrict a subsidiary or branch to see customers of another subsidiary or branch. You can also restrict employees to access customers of a certain subsidiary or branch.
