2. CRM Module - Outlook Plugin

Integrated CRM – Acumatica Add-in for Microsoft Outlook:

With this Outlook add-in, customers can quickly take actions such as creating new lead or contact or Opportunity, be able to view details on lead and contact records that already exist in Acumatica ERP.

We all love our emails and most of us use Outlook, this plugin interacts with Acumatica in real time allowing your sales person to log activity for emails if they are chasing that lead, or update the contact details of the Company if new employee joins or any relevant information that needs to be shared across organization.

All your email replies are captured in Acumatica ERP and in Sync at all times making it more efficient.
Customer service or Support teams can now quickly create cases, look up contacts, interact via email and rest assured all of this is captured within Acumatica.

Scalability - With Outlook plugin you can extend the functionality of ERP by exposing other actionable items such as look up vendor contacts or create new Receipts or Update item price or any other screen that may need quick updates and extend the outlook plugin capabilities.

3. New Contract-based Rest API:

Acumatica 6 also introduces a new, contract-based representational state transfer (REST) application programming interface (API), which uses the same endpoints and contracts as the contract-based Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP) API introduced in Acumatica ERP 5.3.

The REST API makes it very easy to create and test requests directly from a web browser without the custom libraries or special wrappers required for the SOAP API.

Acumatica Version 6 - Needless to say there has been numerous enhancements across the core modules of Financial, Distribution, CRM and Project Accounting and inclusion of new field service management service module and mobile extension gives this version the power to reach newer heights in newer space.
