Our success

It is exciting times at Acumen, as we are continually developing and optimizing our software to better suit the ever changing business landscape.

Acumen works in tandem with our customers and computer hardware companies, ensuring the right technology works in harmony, and we provide advice on when and how to move away from obsolete equipment.

With the release of Acumens’ new software version, procedural performance improvements enables our clients’ core systems to further align with the goals of their business, and the software is fully utilising all it’s technological components.

Continually moving Acumen forward through innovation and delving into new and exciting technologies means we continue to be at the forefront in what we can offer our customers.

The future

As technology use and data collection has exploded over the past decade, Acumen Computer Systems saw business analytics as an integral element and inclusion to our software development to futureproof our business systems.

Acumen invested fully in the development of a complete “what, how and why” model that uses business analytics via comprehensive statistics and machine learning methods to gain knowledge and future insights for our customers.

Previously our system was focused on the “what and how” form of business intelligence to understand tendencies, patterns and information trends for our clients.

As the amount of data available to retailers increases the need for automation of processes, a deeper dive into data interpretation and insightful future forecasting was integral in our growth enabling us to support our customer’s business in a more holistic way in this data driven future.

We achieved this with the introduction of new technical methods including machine learning.

These methods provide extra insights allowing businesses to act and adapt quickly, leading to increased profits and reduced downtime (eg stock levels forecasting, pricing optimization, cyber day sales and more)

We are thrilled to continue to develop our software systems giving our customers the ability to continually take advantage of technology advancements that enhances their business success.
