Build Your Business with Acumatica Construction Edition
Over the past 18 months, we’ve heard rumors that Acumatica Cloud ERP would soon be releasing a full-featured ERP for general contractors, home builders, subcontractors, specialty contractors, and land developers – but now it’s finally official. We’re excited about Acumatica Construction Edition, and we’re pretty sure you will be too.
Get the details on Acumatica Construction Edition in today’s article.
The Basics: What Is Acumatica Construction Edition?
Acumatica Construction Edition is a cloud-based, end-to-end system built for a wide range of construction-industry professionals. The software streamlines core business functions and provides tools for industry-specific needs, such as:
- Financial project management
- Contract tracking and e-signatures

Now that you’ve got the basics down, let’s talk specifics.
The Details: What Does Acumatica Construction Edition Offer?
One of the main differentiators between Acumatica Cloud ERP and other enterprise resource planning systems, both cloud and on-premises, is that Acumatica doesn’t charge per-user fees. This is a serious benefit for construction professionals because it empowers you to connect an unlimited number of contractors, subcontractors, customers, vendors, specialty service providers, architects, developers—anyone you want, really—so that every single person stays on the same page with real-time updates, documents, and change orders.
Of course, you wouldn’t want everyone to have access to all the data, so Acumatica makes it easy to set up personalized views and dashboards, and to restrict data visibility as you see fit.
Since everyone you work with can have on-demand access to the information they need with Acumatica Construction Edition, it’ll be a breeze for you to share and manage:
- Project details and updates for your field and management teams
- Time and material invoices (including employee results)
- Photos and inspection reports
- Schedules for deliveries, labor, and deadlines
- And more…
As a full-featured, cloud-based ERP, Acumatica Construction Edition does a lot more than what we’ve listed here, but if we discussed everything in this article, it would be too long to read.

When to Get Acumatica Construction Edition
Although it was only recently announced, the software will be available by March 2018. That’s just one month away, which will give you enough time to learn more and compare your options, as well as prepare your company for the cloud. (Note that Acumatica can also be deployed on-premises or in a private cloud environment.)
The Time Is Now
The construction industry is experiencing tremendous growth right now, with more projects in more places than ever before. However, much of today’s construction software hasn’t kept up with modern business requirements and most contractors, developers, and builders still struggle to gain an accurate, real-time view of their lightning-fast project changes.
Industry professionals who choose to use newly available, cutting-edge, streamlined cloud technologies, created by trusted software developers, stand to profit handsomely from their competitive advantage.
