Acumatica Partner

When you work with an Acumatica Partner, you work with a company who puts your needs first, who gets to know your business inside and out so that they can deliver a customized product that matches your needs.

When you choose Acumatica, you work exclusively with one of the company’s highly vetted and well-trained partners who implement software and support your company post-implementation. This benefits you in many more ways than you would think. Today, we would like to explore some of the reasons Acumatica’s partner model works for you, and why NexTec can be the ideal Acumatica partner to get you there.

Why the Acumatica partner model works: innovation for you—with a personal touch

74% Of Acumatica staff focuses on R&D

Acumatica couldn’t become one of the fastest-growing, highest-rated, and innovative ERP solutions in just over a decade without a strategy focused on aggressive innovation. By choosing to sell the software only through its partners, Acumatica is given the freedom to focus on innovation – nearly three quarters of its staff is in research and development.

From the industry editions to the robust twice-annual updates, Acumatica continues to provide new products and enhancements to its core product, improving user experience and making the software more viable for an ever-expanding group of businesses.

100% partner model: the personal touch you need

With the exclusively channel-based partner model, you can rest assured that they put a great deal of effort into making the program a success. Given a 5-Star Channel Program Rating by leading voice in the industry CRN, the Acumatica Partner Program is designed to empower partners. With this vast, diverse network of focused partners, you are easily able to find he right partner to deliver your software, who has the skills, size, and experience to get the job done.

The Acumatica API and platform combines innovation and customization

While the Acumatica partner model lets the company focus on innovation and the partners focus on making the platform work for you, the platform itself is built for innovation as well. By providing customers and partners access to the source code, partners can take the solution even further by developing integrations and enhancements for the unique needs of customers, truly providing you the best of both worlds.

NexTec Group: Not just one of the biggest; one of the best

While all the above-mentioned reasons may explain why the Acumatica partner model works, the real question—why should you work with NexTec? No matter the software you’re coming from, if you’ve worked with a value-added reseller (VAR) before, you already understand that the channel partner world is diverse—and not every VAR is created equal.

Channel partners range from tiny shops to multinational firms, have a broad array of niches, and could have anywhere from one employee to thousands. It’s why finding the right partner for your unique needs is so important—often as important as selecting the right software—and it’s why it pays to work with a company who has the size, scope, and experience to get the job done.

At NexTec Group, we are not only among the biggest VARs, we are among the best. Whether you are looking for a partner big enough to easily handle your needs, who has honors from across the industry, or who has the experience you need, we have been there and done that.

Proven innovation in the VAR community

When it comes to finding the right VAR, one of the biggest factors to look at is whether they are skilled. Becoming ‘certified’ is one thing; but having the experience to back it up is another. Bob Scott’s Insights VAR Stars is an annual listing of these value-added resellers who lead all others in growth, innovation, and industry leadership. This annual list recognizes the best and the brightest, and it’s an honor to have appeared on the top 100 list since 2004.

We understand that awards may not be everything, but we sure have a few of them from a wide range of analysts and experts. Don’t believe the hype? Take it from our customers.

Big enough to exceed your needs, not too big to forget them

While innovation is one thing, size is another—especially for midsized to large companies. A partner who has the scale, scope, and size to deliver services no matter how big you are, what you do, or where you are, but not someone too big that they treat you like just another project.

At NexTec Group, we became one of the largest value-added resellers in the nation—24th according to the last report—through our customer relationships. With 140 employees across 14 locations across North America, we consistently have the size to deliver on the needs of companies of all sizes, without forgetting what got us here: A relentless commitment to delivering the best service.

Our commitment to serving customer needs is well documented—both in the aforementioned VAR Stars honors or our most recent recognition: Acumatica President’s Club. President’s Club is only bestowed on the top ten Acumatica Gold Certified Partners for their ability to deliver solutions for customers, and we are proud to announce that we recently took home this honor at the annual meeting of users and partners, Acumatica Summit 2019.

Experience and honesty

When we launched NexTec, we did so because we noticed that software sellers that had never walked a mile in the customers’ shoes. Over the last 25 years of growth, we brought on some of the greatest minds in the business and kept them happy—our average consultant has 25 years’ experience in software, consulting, and industry.

We boast a well-above-average 95% annual customer retention rate and have even saved the occasional client from a poor VAR relationship, helping them to realize the true value of their ERP.

As a company who works with a wide range of solutions, we pride ourselves on honesty as well. We’ve been around long enough to realize that something won’t work long before it falters, and if we feel that Acumatica isn’t right for you, we will tell you.
