Upgrading Acumatica to a new version

By | June 1, 2022

Acumatica ERP is a very flexible and efficient solution that keeps on improving by adding new features and fixing the bugs from time to time. In order to ensure efficient business continuity, Acumatica releases 2 major versions (i.e., 2021 R1 and 2021 R2). Along with the major versions, the minor versions are released bi-weekly or monthly depending on the changes done by Acumatica.

Acumatica ERP provides an inbuilt feature to upgrade the instance from an older version into a newer version. The upgrade to a newer version can be achieved remotely from within Acumatica’s existing instance, or it can be done locally using “Acumatica ERP Configuration Wizard > Application Maintenance > Upgrade”.

In this blog, we will discuss upgrading using Apply Updates screen from within the Acumatica instance.
