Kirkland, Wash., August 23, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Acumatica, the world’s fastest growing cloud ERP company, today announced Acumatica 2022 R2, the second of its semi-annual product updates. The release offers innovations in usability, includes increased ability for businesses to target new markets and geographic segments, and refines targeting of micro-markets and vertical markets.

The updates we’ve introduced in 2022 R2 will help organizations across all industries elevate their processes, realize market and add value to their fund lines.”
