How to evolve your Acumatica ERP through its Marketplace?

Acumatica Cloud ERP, a powerful and versatile ERP solution, provides a solid foundation for managing operations and processes. However, to fully leverage its potential and meet the needs of each organization, it is essential to extend its functionality through extensions and connectors. This is where the Acumatica Marketplace comes in. Acumatica's marketplace is rich in ready-to-use applications that allow you to customize and tailor your ERP, enhancing its performance.

What's the difference between a module, an application, and a connector?

A module is a plugin added to an ERP to extend its functionalities without being connected to a third-party application. It allows the system to deploy additional capabilities such as financial process automation and enhanced data reporting within the scope of human resources management.

An application is standalone software designed to address a specific need or perform tasks. It can be used independently, without requiring other software or systems to function. Applications are often developed for specific use cases and offer a range of features to solve a particular problem or enhance a business process.

For example, inventory management software is an application that enables a business to effectively track and manage its stock levels without requiring other third-party software.

A connector is designed to link two separate applications and allow them to communicate or interact with each other. It acts as a bridge between systems, facilitating the flow of data and information between them. Connectors can be used to integrate two different applications and ensure real-time or regular interval data synchronization.

For example, a connector between an ERP and a WMS software would allow an e-commerce company to automatically synchronize data on orders and stock levels between the two systems. Thus, when an order is placed on the online platform, the connector would instantly transmit relevant information to the WMS, enabling the warehouse to prepare and ship the order efficiently.

The Acumatica Marketplace exclusively gathers various modules and connectors.
