Acumatica Surpasses Sage, Oracle Netsuite in SoftwareReviews’ 2021 ERP Emotional Footprint for the Midmarket

No Comments

Most tech advisors caution companies looking for a cloud ERP solution to leave their emotions out of the process. Not so with SoftwareReviews. They use real end-user experiences—and how they feel about their software purchases—to create the comprehensive Emotional Footprint report.

By Sean Chatarjee from Acumatica (

SoftwareReviews, a division of Info-Tech Research Group, recently published their 2021 ERP Emotional Footprint for the Midmarket report. We’re excited to share that Acumatica Cloud ERP is a Champion and a Gold Medalist winner.

Net Emotional Footprint (NEF) Calculation

SoftwareReviews collects feedback from verified IT and business professionals to calculate software vendors’ Net Emotional Footprint (NEF). The NEF is based on 25 “provocative” questions covering various categories, discovering how real end-users’ respond emotionally to a vendor and the vendor’s product long after the purchase has been completed.

According to the SoftwareReviews press release, “The Net Emotional Footprint (NEF) of each software vendor is a result of aggregated emotional response ratings across the areas of service, negotiation, product impact, conflict resolution, strategy, and innovation. The NEF is a powerful indicator of overall user sentiment toward the vendor and its product from the software user’s point of view.”

Once the NEF is calculated, SoftwareReviews positions the vendors in their Emotional Footprint Diamond as “Champions,” “Relationship Builders,” “Value Players,” and “Contenders.”

The results are released in a fact-based report, providing actionable insights for companies evaluating their software options.
