To say that Acumatica Summit 2023 was a big success for Kensium is an understatement! Kensium has been a Platinum sponsor for the past eight years. Our company leadership met with industry leaders, clients, and partners at the Wynn Hotel in Las Vegas.
While the summit's official start was January 29th, the Acumatica Hackathon was held January 27 – 28. The Hackathon consisted of twelve teams of Acumatica Developers from all over the world. The teams work together to create features, add-ons, and apps for Acumatica. Two of Kensium’s talented developers and our co-founder participated and won the Hackathon. Team members who participated are:
- Chetan Srinivas – First Place
- Rahul Gedupudi – Second Place
- Chandra Mani – Third Place
Even though they were on separate teams, they came away with impressive wins!
Day 1: Marketplace Success!
During the first marketplace event, we showcased our booth filled with swag, raffle entries, and Forza Motorsports 7 video gameplay. The leadership team was on hand to chat with customers, VARs, and ISVs. We were happy to see many friends and made new ones. Everyone who came to visit us had nothing but great things to say about Kensium and our contributions to the Acumatica community.
This year, we introduced Fusion, a division of Kensium. Fusion drew in an entirely new set of clients and friends. Mike Gill, CEO, and Jake Sumners from Fusion were on hand, showcasing the new POS system and introducing the new Fusion product lines.
In addition to manning the Kensium booth, several of our team spoke at breakout sessions during the summit. Our team joined other industry leaders to discuss different aspects of business where an ERP system like Acumatica improves operations, data accuracy, and increases collaboration. The following individuals participated in the breakout sessions:
David Eichner, Kensium Solutions Engineer
Distribution Operations: Industry Benchmarks and KPIs
John Oakley, Manager, Acumatica Implementations
Distribution: Taking Inventory Management to the Next Level
Ted Stenstrom, CSO
Ecommerce: Insights to Navigate Choosing the Right Ecommerce Solution

Day 2: Awards Galore!
Avante Health Solutions – Customer of the Year!
Day two was filled with even more Kensium wins. The biggest win was for our customer, Avante Health Solutions. Their unique use of Acumatica to combine eight divisions into one system (down from twelve) to manage operations, sales, and customer information took them to the top of the list. This project was a big one for Kensium and we are proud to continue working with Avante well into the future.
