Major Improvement over QuickBooks

Ease-of-use

The help button on each page goes directly to the relevant article on how to use the page and has other links to relevant topics.

Functionality

It fulfills needs we didn't even know we had. Saved searches that can be emailed at a certain time or any time a record has changed, which has been very helpful for data validation.

Product Quality

Though we have run into a few strange bugs, NetSuite support has been very helpful with finding solutions. Overall, performance is very consistent.

Customer Support

Their support site usually has answers to my questions, and the search seems very smart. When I couldn't find an answer there, I've gotten replies to my emails the same day.

NetSuite combines the ease of use of QuickBooks with some of the power of the large scale ERP systems. The staff accountants had no problem picking up their daily duties after we implemented NetSuite, but some of the advanced features, such as the CSV imports, have made everyone's lives easier. Also, their online help is easy to navigate and has extensive content.

Likes Least

Since there are so many features available that we don't use, they can sometimes be confusing to the user. It's possible to hide those options, but customizing the system takes some time.

Recommendations

It's helpful to consider the automated processes available in NetSuite and if they could be applied to some of the functions you perform in your current system. We save a lot of time with out-of-the-box imports, and we're also taking advantage of custom scripts to do other time consuming tasks.

Ease-of-use

It's pretty straightforward once you get shown around a bit. There are a lot of options, so it's a good idea to narrow down what you need and hide the rest. So customization is great!

Functionality

Yes. The out-of-the-box financials are great! Also, I'm very happy with the foreign currency translation and consolidation.

Product Quality

The user interface is great, and being SaaS, as long as your internet connection is good, it's good to go!

Customer Support

Our implementation team was really knowledgable, and we have not needed customer support yet. I guess that's a testament to the functionality!

Likes Best

I like the reporting, as well as the FX translation and consolidation. Pretty much anything is upload-able, even payment application for payables. You can email out AR invoices in batches, and the AR collection statements are really clear and easy to read. The system also accepts API connections, so we plan to create connections in the future with our other programs.

Likes Least

We can't email out AR invoices to multiple email addresses without paying more for a personalized script to be written, as this is not out-of-the-box functionality.

Recommendations

Ensure you get a thorough demo of all your key areas required.

Two and a half years ago, we used a custom eCommerce website patched together with Quickbooks and several APIs for shipping, CRM and credit card processing. That system, which required significant webmaster expenses and took 15 minutes to process a sale order, worked fine for our high-dollar, low-volume transactions. But when we decided to expand our business to include low-dollar, high-volume transactions, we needed a more powerful, integrated system that would provide: 1. faster processing time 2. integrated CRM 3. mass marketing capabilities 4. customer support 5. a hosted, role-based solution.

NetSuite has provided all of these benefits - incredibly - at a cost savings!

Implementation took 5 months - it was super intense - but with heavy assistance from NetSuite and fantastic customization work from SuiteCommerce, we launched on time and on budget, and we haven't looked back.

NetSuite requires commitment and because it's so powerful, it's complicated. But with the appropriate commitment, there's not much else that can provide the benefits and advantages of NetSuite's integrated system.

We couldn't be happier with NetSuite.
