Read how Acumatica helped these three distribution businesses.
Youngevity, a health and nutritional product distributor replaced their QuickBooks solution with Acumatica to help manage and grow their business. Prior to Acumatica, Youngevity was using QuickBooks to manage its financials and an Access database for inventory. But QuickBooks did not provide a consolidation solution, out-of-the-box inventory management, multiple currencies, nor APIs to connect to Youngevity’s Genealogy System that manages client orders and relationships. Instead of adding different modules and patches to QuickBooks, Youngevity decided that it was time to upgrade to an integrated accounting and inventory solution that could grow on demand.
– Chris Nelson (CPA), CFO, Youngevity
Acumatica reduced order processing to save the equivalent of a fulltime data processing employee. Additionally, because Acumatica is a web-based solution, Youngevity now has global access to inventory across multiple warehouses without the hassle of VPN or other client software. Adaptable integration tools provided Youngevity with a single integrated solution that was easy to integrate with on-premise systems. Read more – download Youngevity’s success story.

They provide sales, marketing, distribution, and technical support of products, which are used in the drilling, servicing, production, and transportation of crude oil, and natural gas. The company had three locations and each location was run on a version of a legacy Sage instance that didn’t talk to each other, which was inefficient and time-consuming when it came to forming an accurate picture of the business. As the oil and gas industry rebounded, Bob Davis Sales decided to invest in Acumatica to streamline operations and increase sales. Learn more about why Bob Davis Sales chose Acumatica.
