The fast-growing Cloud ERP provider closes latest round of funding with an infusion of $13.3 million, fueling new plans for growth and expansion
KIRKLAND, Wash.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–October 21, 2014–
Acumatica, provider of cloud accounting software, today announced that the company has raised $13.3 million in a new funding round, led by investment from Australian accounting software powerhouse MYOB, an Acumatica strategic OEM partner.
This new funding, together with previous amounts raised in rounds led by Runa Capital and Almaz Capital, and Oslo-based Visma, another Acumatica OEM partner, brings total funding well in excess of $30 million.
“This investment validates the market acceptance of the Acumatica solution,” said CEO Jon Roskill. “The investment will allow us to implement aggressive growth plans in three areas: Broadening our product line; accelerating the expansion and enablement of our partner ecosystem; and upsizing our brand in a big way.”
“It’s an exciting time for businesses,” Roskill added. “Customers can now unlock their potential with Acumatica’s cost-effective, modern alternative to the NetSuite blackmail.”
MYOB, Australia’s leading business software provider, announced plans to invest in Acumatica and take a board seat with the fast-growing Cloud ERP provider at Acumatica’s Partner Summit in August this year.
MYOB CEO Tim Reed said: “We believe in the innovation of the Acumatica technology and are investing in our mutual success.

One year later, we are in final phase of piloting the Advanced product, and have customers live on MYOB Advanced, powered by Acumatica technology.”
