As I have only used it in one business I can't say too much how relevant it would be for other types of business, eg Retail or Manufacturing. It doesn't appear to be specifically set up for ecommerce.

We wholesale products and it works well for that kind of business model.

NetSuite

As a huge fan and advocate of single (or few) systems, I think NetSuite is a great solution for most 30+ employee companies that have a need to operate in the cloud. The cost and effort to integrate multiple systems (even if they're really good point solutions) rarely outweighs the value of a single system.

Pros

  • Generic Inquiries are a very easy way to create custom reports.
  • The automation schedules are useful, we use these for confirming of shipments, creating invoices and emailing them. Reduces workload.
  • Open for integration with other software. We find the ease of connection to MS PowerBI very useful.
Justin Leflaive profile photo
  • NetSuite ERP is a very robust piece of software. That is its biggest advantage.
  • Also the fact that they have developed through their local representative companies, packages with accounting rules specific to each country.
  • Additionally, it looks a little bit more modern than other robust software similar in the industry. But just a little.

Cons

  • The CRM module is very basic.
  • There is no supplier remittance function.
  • The API is basic, our ecommerce integration has had to be built nearly from scratch.
Justin Leflaive profile photo
  • Customization requires significant time investment. The learning curve is steep. You either need a dedicated resource to have the skill set to build these customizations for every department and every user or have money to invest in additional customization from NetSuite developers.
  • Compared to some other systems NetSuite is very intensive to build business intelligence from. It does not do three dimensions of data very well so you have to export into a BI tool, or even Excel. So you have to build multiple one or two dimensional saved searches and do the combining of them in a more user friendly platform.
  • The CRM functionality also falls victim to the complexity to customize. If your sales process is well defined so upon roll out, there is little change then there is no issue. However, if you are a startup or building out and revising your sales processes then you will experience frustration as either you need to spend the time and energy to make adjustments yourself or pay for NetSuite consultants to customize which isn't always in the budget for younger companies.

It is very customisable and good value for money. It is also scalable for the future. The CRM and ecommerce integtration are the main downsides.

I am not the decision maker for this but I believe our company will be sticking with NetSuite for the long term. A CRM like this is a big investment and not something you move away from quickly and without a lot of planning. There is a lot of data involved and importing that into a new system is no easy task.

Implementation is relatively simple compared to other software packages. Carefully reconcile closing balances from the old system with opening balances in Netsuite, and lock the old system so changes can't be made

Alternatives Considered

NetSuite is much more expensive and is difficult to customise or integrate.
SAP is a more complex and powerful system, but several times more expensive to implement and run.
Justin Leflaive profile photo
Netsuite lacks in customization when compared to a lot of the alternatives. The communication and tasking is weaker when compared to other tools. The advantage for NetSuite is they are a complete platform so the best, total package, alternative is Zoho and Zoho books. They are not as robust as NetSuite which, since finance owns the system, we are going to pick a system that makes our lives easier vs. sales or project management. While Netsuite may not be as strong at CRM and project management as other stand alone products, holistically this tool does provide an adequate ability to do all things within one platform

We have been able to scale our business 25X without any major overhaul with Netsuite. Its dashboard setup makes onboarding new employees very easy and allows data to be shared across multiple offices. Its cloud setup does not put any pressure on IT to scale servers or other infrastructure. We have been able to become much more efficient in all aspects of the business.

Return on Investment

  • Time to match customer payments has decreased by approximately 30%.
  • Time to enter sales orders has decreased by approx 10%.
  • It has enabled up to easily access our system remotely, meaning we are able to be more flexible in our work.
Justin Leflaive profile photo
  • Workflows have streamlined our sales and purchasing processes. It is easy for our staff to follow the workflows to make sure nothing falls through the cracks. The processes have required very little maintenance or training since implementing them over four years ago.
  • We have all relevant accounting and operating data in one place, which helps decision-making. For example, we can make product mix decisions by viewing margins over time by sku.
  • The only negative is the cost. We could save on monthly subscription costs by using Xero combined with an order and inventory management solution like Unleashed. However, we would lose efficiency by not having all processes integrated into one system.
