Background

Established in 1998, NetSuite went public in 2007 and was acquired by Oracle in 2016. Written before many of the latest web technologies were standardized, Oracle NetSuite continues to be limited in their deployment options, their customization language, and their database export capabilities.

Conversely, Acumatica was designed from the start to be accessible both through the cloud and on-premises using modern web technology. We offer access to your data anytime, flexible licensing options, and no cost for adding users, lowering your company’s TCO.

We believe Acumatica provides the best price/value, performance, functionality, and ease of use of any ERP product available for small- and medium-sized businesses.

"Acumatica is fast and efficient. During the holiday season we were able to import hundreds of orders that we previously had to batch using other ERP systems."

Similarities

For many businesses, the decision comes down to deciding between Acumatica and Oracle NetSuite. Which one do you choose?

  • Both integrate ERP, CRM, eCommerce, and BI
  • Both support a variety of vertical industries, from retail to distribution to manufacturing

Differentiators

Full relational database export

Oracle NetSuite users cannot directly export their data in a relational format, making it difficult and costly to migrate their data. Acumatica will never hold your data hostage – both our built-in automated backup service plus our snapshot feature allow you to have a fully relational copy of your data at any time.

Customizations using industry standard tools

Both products are highly configurable, but Acumatica is built using industry standard C# and .NET. Oracle NetSuite uses proprietary development tools, making customizations more difficult.

Upgrade on your schedule

To support their required multi-tenant model, Oracle NetSuite limits when users can choose to update their software. Acumatica provides users the option to upgrade at any time they choose; Oracle NetSuite charges users for this option.

Flexible licensing options

Both products are available through public cloud subscription licensing (SaaS), but Acumatica also offers alternate options to accommodate customers’ unique requirements.

Multiple deployment options

While both products are available in the cloud, Acumatica also supports on-premises and hybrid deployments for companies that want to keep sensitive data in-house.

TCO

Both products charge by computing resources consumed, but Oracle NetSuite also charges per user. These costs increase as your company grows, increasing your total cost of ownership over time.
