Everest ERP Alternative

If your business runs on Everest ERP, this is the perfect time to think about migrating to a modern, cloud ERP like Acumatica – your support for Windows Server 2008 is either going away or will come at a much higher price when it moves to end of life in 2020

At Cloud 9 ERP Solutions, some of our most notable (and vocally supportive) customers are Everest transplants, and as a former Everest ERP reseller, we can certainly tell you that we have seen both sides of the argument and feel that Acumatica ERP is the ideal solution to replace it.

Legacy ERP Business Challenges – How Long Can You Afford to Stay on Everest?

Lack of Visibility: How well do you know your business? In today’s business landscape, when transparency is both a necessity and a business driver, your ability to communicate everything from available stock on hand to customers or accurate financials to board members and decision makers could be the difference between growth and failure.

Acumatica doesn’t rely on batch processing to do basic tasks, allowing you real time insights, in-depth and customizable reporting, and tailored dashboards.

Manual Processes Abound: When a platform was already considered clunky and outdated in 2009, where does it stand today? No better than it did a decade ago. Legacy ERP users still are toiling away in spreadsheets trying to get an accurate picture of where they stand.

With Acumatica your employees won’t be elbow deep in spreadsheets and manual processes, so they can focus on more strategic tasks, such as using data instead of entering data.

Disconnected, Disparate, Disastrous: Legacy ERP and its inherent lack of integration means that your people have to spend more time just to combine data from a range of sources, often forced to tun back to the aforementioned manual processes and spreadsheets to do so.

Because Acumatica is built to accommodate—and, more importantly, make sense of—disparate data sources and formats, you’re able to collect and glean insights from virtually all of the data generated by your business.

Here is what you will get with a modern cloud ERP like Acumatica:

Everest Migration Case Study

AV systems integration firm moves to Acumatica, increases sales revenue and improves operational efficiencies.

You get a “True Cloud” experience

Your users can access all ERP functionality with a standard web browser. Users don’t have to install any special software on their devices. Everest requires a Windows client on every workstation.

You experience “True Mobility” out-of-the-box

ery Acumatica screen offers the same information and flow, regardless of whether the user is on a PC, tablet or smartphone. In contrast, Everest supports neither true mobile-friendly screens nor mobile access.

You can architect your solution with modern technology

With Acumatica, you can leverage standards-based, RESTful Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) if you want easy integration with other applications. Everest lacks this capability.

You can customize Acumatica with industry-standard tools

The suite is highly configurable, taking advantage of the C# programming language and Microsoft .NET framework. Everest is capable of being modified with C# and .NET, but it limits users’ ability to customize.
