NetSuite Software


 

NetSuite is a leading provider of Software-as-a-Service business software solutions. NetSuite’s application for wholesale and distribution is one of the premiere web-based solutions that can assist mid-sized, fast-growing distributors at gaining a competitive edge against competitors by offering an integrated ERP, inventory, e-commerce, accounting, fulfillment, and CRM solution.

What we like about NetSuite is it offers functionality to assist in both execution and planning to help distributors improve their practices. This allows users to make decisions and continue improvement in the future. Because the system is SaaS-based, it is highly scalable and can grow organically with users’ businesses.

NetSuite Distribution is truly a fully-integrated software suite and has modules for all the business activities of distributors. This means accounting and inventory management is both organized and accurate and is integrated with CRM, customer self-service, order processing, and e-commerce functionality. To help users make sense of this data, NetSuite provides various dashboards to help specific users organize the exact information they need to make quick decisions.This integration and information presentation results in a powerful tool that distributors can use to make accurate demand, expense, and sales decisions.

In addition to better providing more pertinent information, NetSuite assists distributors by automating processes. This is extremely helpful, especially for more advanced operations that may operate multiple locations and have multiple levels of inventory complexity. This allows users to spend more time analyzing their results instead of manually inputting data.

NetSuite is also a great distribution system for users that want to reduce IT complexity or currently operate on a minimalist IT approach. Because the system is a fully-integrated suite, IT can focus on business growth instead of technical integration difficulties. And when technical issues do arise, NetSuite provides support to help users focus on their businesses.

There are some tedious tasks and can be done from too many different ways. I work in this system daily and have gotten to be much better at it but our salesmen who use it every other day, it is very time-consuming. I would consider most aspects of it very time consuming and the support has not been very good.

Pros

It has a lot of functions, maybe too many.

Cons

The program is not as wonderful as I was lead to believe.

Pros

Good at calculating profitability for projects.

Cons

-When entering parts into a sales order, PO, or invoice, there is too much clicking of the mouse. Should be able to tab through the fields and down to the next line. Adds a significant amount of time.
-If you add a field to a transaction form that was not in the original form, it will not print. You will have to reenter the part for that field to appear.
-Printable debit memo not available.

NetSuite has great capabilities, from building your own reports to tracking profitability and commissions. I would not recommend this for small businesses, but I would recommend this for mid to large size companies.

Advice to Others

I would be sure you have a good implementation team if you are doing a software conversion.

N/A

NetSuite has great capabilities. We switched from our previous software to NetSuite on 1/1/17 and have had good results so far.

Pros

The ability to create your own reports from scratch.
The ability to track profitability and commissions as the previous software did not track either of them accurately.

Cons

When entering a sales order or purchase order, instead of using the Tab button to go to the next line, you have to click "OK" to go to the next line item. It takes additional time as you have to take your hands off of the keyboard so it would be nice to use the keyboard more than having to use the mouse.
I also do not like the "Inventory Detail" part of it as you have to click on each individual item in order to enter the bin number and pallet number in which you are taking out of inventory. This also makes processing orders a lot more time to consume than it should be. We switched to NetSuite to get away from Excel as it would save us time. I'm not sure that NetSuite will save me anytime.

I like the comprehensive pricing options that are available throughout the platform. The csv. import feature saves time and allows for thousands of item pricing changes within an hour.

Likes Least

There are an array of features which make it necessary for longer training periods. After using the system for a year I have still yet to scratch the surface of platform functionality.

Recommendations

It is definitely a valuable system for a company with massive inventory. Make sure the costly price is right for your business.

This product really truly impressed me with the incredible amount of features and its versatility for multiple applications. This product is useful for most any business as it includes capabilities that are suitable to meet the demands of most business models.

Likes Least

Although you have a vast amount of applicable uses for this product, it is a strength as well as a downfall. There are a lot of features that you will never use!! Also, the interface is filled with stuff that you may never need and therefore is incredibly busy on most of your screens. The learning curve for this product is INSANE and every time they come out with a new update, which is twice a year, the software has more and more issues!

Recommendations

This product is incredibly expensive but it is a massive software. It covers the needs of a super wide range of businesses which is great but you are also bogged down with extras that you will never use. This product would be great for a giant company but for the regular old mom and pop companies its probably not a good fit!

It's well-designed in the sense of appearance and functions available. It works great for maintaining inventory counts.

Likes Least

It's not at all user-friendly. It doesn't flow, nor is it intuitive with multi-step processes. It's also difficult to track what has been done previously.

Recommendations

Assess your needs in regard to how frequently you will need to be completing multi-step processes.
