ACA Designation Testifies to Strength of Product, Depth of Integration

TOTOWA, N.J., Sept. 26, 2016 – Real estate technology software provider Integrated Business Systems (IBS) today announced that its new, cloud-based Imperium Powered by Acumatica lease management/accounting software has been recognized as an Acumatica-Certified Application (ACA).

Acumatica is a comprehensive, browser-based Cloud ERP solution optimized for ease of use, adaptability, mobility, speed, and security. The ACA title highlights outstanding development partners whose applications have met the highest standards set for Acumatica integration and functionality.

“Customers who want to stay competitive need flexible, responsive technology to execute their long-term business strategies,” said Christian Lindberg, vice president of partner solutions at Acumatica. “Our ACA label is built to help customers find applications capable of delivering that. We’re proud to recognize Imperium as an Acumatica-Certified Application. It masterfully utilizes the Acumatica platform to meet customers’ growing business demands.”

Since its launch in 1979, IBS’s legacy lease management/accounting software – used by dozens of regional commercial and residential real estate owners and operators – had evolved to meet changing customer needs and leverage technological advances.

“With the emergence of cloud computing, our leadership recognized that enabling clients to take full advantage of the resulting opportunities would require not just an update – but a rebuild,” noted IBS President Michael Mullin. “To that end, in 2015 we partnered with Acumatica to take the company forward.” In 2016, IBS released Imperium Powered by Acumatica. In essence, the two companies distilled the most important functions of the IBS legacy system and rebuilt it on Acumatica’s Cloud xRP Framework, an extensible and scalable development platform.

“Imperium extends the power of Acumatica’s cloud ERP product with an industry-specific, fully integrated lease management/accounting system,” Mullin explained. “It is intended to serve as the core of a real estate entity’s ‘tech stack,’ housing enterprise data and interfacing with third-party products across multiple services categories.” This includes popular CRM and lease workflow, building management, budgeting and valuation, tenant screening, residential portal, and utility billing applications – among others.

To become an Acumatica-Certified Application, IBS has demonstrated commitment to quality by passing the Acumatica software test and aligning to future Acumatica roadmap releases. “We’re honored to receive this kind of recognition from the Acumatica developers themselves,” Mullin said. “This is a testament to the strength of our application and the depth of our integration with the Acumatica platform.”

IBS also serves as a reseller of Acumatica’s general accounting system. Geared to small and mid-size businesses across a range of industries, Acumatica delivers a suite of fully integrated business management applications on a robust and flexible platform. Additionally, IBS’s Managed IT Services division offers comprehensive consulting, design, installation and support services for diversified clients. IBS embraces the most powerful products to ensure a reliable and secure technology infrastructure.
