Now might be a great time for your business to look at Acumatica or an upgrade.  We recommend you schedule an upgrade during the slower season or opposite of your busy season.  Plan for a 30-60 day project timeline and execute during that time-frame on a yearly basis.  If you plan and coordinate enough in advance, you should always be on a supported version and not have to worry about reacting and putting your company at risk.

You might ask, what happens if I do not upgrade and am not on a supported version.  That is dependent on what license type you have, and you need to discuss with your Crestwood Client Account Manager as to what that means for you and your organization.

At Crestwood, we are here to help you with your upgrades and making sure that you are taking advantage of your investment!  If you have questions, email us at
