New Security Feature: Snapshot creation without switching on Maintenance mode.

One of the really cool things for System administrator dealing with Acumatica is taking snapshots and being able to re-create another instance or Company, however this led to creating bad records or corrupted data as we are taking snapshots other users might be using the system and there was a good chance of data corruption.

In the latest release 2017 R2 Acumatica now warns user with a message "The snapshot may contain corrupted data because you are not in maintenance mode." letting you know not to take snapshot of the live instance without switching the maintenance mode.

Manage 3dCart Orders, eCommerce distribution made easy with Acumatica Cloud ERP

Selling Online should be as easy as shopping itself - 3dCart.
While we say managing 3dCart orders within Acumatica should be as easy as a click.

Our custom integration package for 3dCart allows business owners to download orders from 3dCart shopping software into Acumatica Cloud ERP for distribution and processing of orders.
We just did build an import scenario or API/Web service to download orders, instead we built the framework to accommodate your growing business, multiple websites orders can now be processed in Acumatica, that's the power of Acumatica framework.

We have several options for order processing in Acumatica
