John Howell, ERP veteran, heads Acumatica's Advisory Board

As early as 2005, I noticed that many VARs wanted a web-based accounting and ERP solution designed for mid-market customers that was not constrained by a SaaS delivery model, or built on a proprietary platform

Acumatica, a provider of web-based accounting, ERP, and CRM software, today announced that John S. Howell, Jr. will take a leadership role on the company's advisory board. Mr. Howell was one of the original founders of Acumatica and helped define the company's initial strategy.

Mr. Howell brings over 25 years of experience as a successful software entrepreneur to Acumatica. Most notably, he helped build Solomon Software, Inc. to be the largest privately held ERP software company in the USA prior to its merger with Great Plains, Inc. and later purchase by Microsoft. At Solomon, Mr. Howell was President and CEO of the International division for 10 years, and prior to that he was Worldwide VP of Sales and Marketing for 8 years.

"As early as 2005, I noticed that many VARs wanted a web-based accounting and ERP solution designed for mid-market customers that was not constrained by a SaaS delivery model, or built on a proprietary platform," said John Howell. "The business relationship offered to VARs by SaaS providers, who primarily sell direct, was fundamentally incompatible with VAR business models."

"Acumatica responded to the VAR's needs by developing a 'channel-friendly' solution which can be deployed on-premise or hosted, customized according to client needs using familiar technologies, and delivered according to popular VAR distribution models," said Ezequiel Steiner, Chief Executive Officer at Acumatica.
