Why Migrate from Dynamics SL to Acumatica?
Business Leaders Are Taking the Leap to Migrate from Dynamics SL to Acumatica – Here’s Why
The countdown has begun. The last announced version of Microsoft Dynamics SL 2018 is scheduled to end mainstream support on July 11, 2023. Many companies did not see the value in moving to SL 2018 and remain on SL 2011 or 2015. These same companies are running older versions of Windows Server and SQL Server, which are no longer supported. In an era of cyberattacks and ransomware, can your organization afford to be stuck on a legacy solution with outdated and unsupported technology?
Business leaders across a wide range of industries are updating their on-premises ERP and migrating to a modernized, cloud-based ERP solution. Is it the right time for your company to migrate from Dynamics SL to Acumatica?
Now is a very opportune time for businesses to make this progressive move forward because ERP technology has made major advancements over the past decade. Modern cloud ERP solutions like Acumatica are able to deliver significant benefits to businesses looking to grow the future of their company.

What Are the Benefits If You Migrate from Dynamics SL to Acumatica?
Do these comments sound familiar?
“I am running SL 2011/2015 on Windows Server 2008/2012. My server is 10 to 13 years old and the IT staff is telling me they cannot support it. We have custom reports, screens, and processes that we need to upgrade or move to another ERP. The cost of upgrading may be better spent on moving to a modern ERP with a longer life expectancy. We can’t find anyone under the age of 60 to help us with our Dynamics SL customizations and worry that they will not be available in the future.”
“We moved to Dynamics SL 2018 to stay on a supported platform (Windows, SQL and Terminal Server). We did not gain much in the form of product enhancements. Many of our employees wish to continue working remotely and Dynamics SL is just not made for the remote worker.”
“Our business is growing, and new younger employees are frustrated with the Dynamics SL interface. They keep asking why they cannot work from their phone, tablet, or non-Windows devices. They grew up in a web and app-based world and using Dynamics SL is making it difficult to retain staff.”
There are many advantages awaiting the businesses that migrate from Microsoft Dynamics SL to Acumatica. One key reason is that Acumatica provides a much easier transition for Dynamics SL users due to the similar functionality and features used by the two solutions.
