Acumatica vs. NetSuite: which one to choose? Both cloud ERP solutions are popular and highly regarded in the industry. Both have compelling value propositions and extensive install bases. However, one solution is simply better than the other. Read on to find out which software solution you should choose…


  • Both Acumatica and Oracle NetSuite offer cloud-based SaaS ERP applications.
  • Both integrate ERP, CRM, eCommerce, and BI.
  • Both support a variety of vertical industries, from retail to distribution to manufacturing.


  • 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 scheduling.
    • 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.
    • 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.
