"Migration and Starting All Over Again" Fear

Summary

The fear of migration problems and starting-all-over-again may hold you back from migrating from your current ERP to the Acumatica cloud ERP. Especially when you have implemented proprietary ERP systems such as SAP, Oracle (NetSuite, JD Edwards, ..), Epicor, Infor and MS Dynamics GP, AX and NAV. Those ERP systems took a long time and headaches to implement, and to enhance with customizations that your business needed.

However this fear is taken away when you migrate to the Acumatica cloud ERP since Acumatica and ISV vendors provide plenty of tools to migrate  (transfer your data) from your current ERP system to the Acumatica cloud ERP.
