Acumatica has announced the general availability of Acumatica 2023 R1, the first release of their biannual product updates.  The features in this release were determined based on Acumatica’s Customer-Driven Innovation process which they use to fine tune new functionality based on constructive customer feedback.  This helps guide the product roadmap through customer input from various processes and channels including industry user groups, customer advisory boards, focus groups, customer visits, and online voting.  

Suggestions that deliver benefit by helping Acumatica customers gain greater efficiency are taken from their ideas portal and put into development.  An example of this now available in the 2023 R1 release is delegating or handing off approvals to a co-worker and making it easy to turn on and deactivate which was added thanks to user feedback.

Here’s a look at some of the Acumatica 2023 R1 upgrades and features resulting from the above process.
