In Acumatica ERP 2018 R2, the following improvements have been introduced to allow organizations to
control the way personal names and contact information are displayed throughout the system.
Display Name Order
By using a new setting, Display Name Order, on the Site Preferences (SM200505) form (shown in the
following screenshot), an administrator can now specify which name order is to be used for displaying
the personal names of all contacts, employees, and users. Name order is the order in which the parts of
a person's name (first name, middle name, and last name) are displayed.

The Shipment screen allows to allocate products picker is picking and has to manually allocate these serialized inventory to shipment before confirming and making sure they are shipping the right product and keeping track of serialized inventory.

SuperBowl 52 Champs
We are super excited with Eagles winning the SuperBowl 52 against Patriots, this win is so near and dear to all of us for many different reasons ...
a) Eagles winning this for the first time
b) Stopping Patriots and Tom Brady
c) But most exciting news Kevins Worldwide, an InfoSourcing customer using Acumatica Cloud ERP and PrintShop extension gets to print 13,000 Champions tees from their facility in Scranton, PA.
One of the biggest concern of SaaS customers "Would my ERP go down? Or it may not be accessible due to internet connectivity or hacking or any other million reasons..."
Yes, there is that slight chance of 0.1% that something can go wrong, for unpredictable reasons ...
Well that's not how we operate in the cloud, we anticipate that it might happen and take precautionary measures, what's the price we are going to pay for this down time? What can be done to keep up-time of the server to 99.9% working.
Acumatica Cloud ERP SaaS hosting takes care of all such scenario's with AWS hosting, AWS itself has data backed up to different zones/regions to be able to mirror sites so it can re--route if such disaster occurs.
At Acumatica Summit 2018 in Nashville we learnt about this new website service offered by Acumatica will show in real time the up-time of all the servers hosted for their clients and any planned service maintenance.
