Likelihood to Recommend

Aralco Inventory Management

Aralco Inventory Management is well suited for a retail operation with one or two locations that is expanding to 5+. At that point, there is small enough start-up costs and significant benefits available for this software to assist a company with the inventory and POS challenges associated with rapid growth. Aralco Inventory Management is also particularly helpful for retail companies that have complicated sales orders or a sales fulfillment time that is longer than a day or a week.

NetSuite

I am a huge advocate for NetSuite, because the system is user-friendly (after a little training) and because it is so customizable. I would recommend NetSuite to any business with more than one company and especially businesses with companies based in more than one country. Small, medium and large companies can leverage the NetSuite platform to suit their needs, whether simple or complex.NetSuite has a number of taxation features that can help to automate return filings, so any business looking to systematize certain tax areas will find the system very useful.NetSuite allows great transparency across an organization and adopts a "one source of truth" methodology. If you have Finance, Accounting, Marketing, Sales, Operations, etc. all working in the same platform and working with the same data, there is less room for data discrepancies and more reliance can be placed upon the system outputs.If a business has a disconnect between Finance, Accounting, Marketing, Sales, Operations, etc. NetSuite will allow that business to come together and automate processes within a single system. There is no need for external system connectors, saving the business time (maintaining the connections) and money (saving on subscription fees to third-party connector vendors).

Pros

Aralco Inventory Management

  • Retail focus
  • Single source for all inventory control requirements
  • Power-to-cost ratio
  • Training package
Jeff Looby, CPA profile photo

NetSuite

  • Integrates. NetSuite is particularly good at integrating with other products. For example, we integrate NetSuite with Adaptive Planning in order to bring actual financials together with forecast and budget data, which is then used for analysis and reporting. We also integrate NetSuite with other administration platforms so invoicing and commissions can be done rather seamlessly.
  • Intuitive. NetSuite is extremely intuitive. I started using it without any training and was easy to learn. It takes a little practice to learn the reporting system, but if you are just looking for client or vendor information it is as easy as typing the name or ID into the search box at the top.
  • Easy to Support. While setup is important and takes a lot of hours, the ongoing support is outstanding when compared to some of the other big enterprise systems. The previous enterprise system I used needed 4 full time programmers on staff just to keep it running, and it still kept getting outdated. The cloud application and seamless upgrades make this product superior.

Cons

Aralco Inventory Management

  • Lengthy set-up process that requires strong management
  • High base hardware requirements (can't be used with just a phone, for instance)
  • Inventory forecasting is not linked to any external or macro forces
Jeff Looby, CPA profile photo

NetSuite

  • Consolidated invoicing. Generally, I think it's not a problem for NetSuite customers, and the potential, infrequent multiple invoicing to a given customer is likely okay. However, there may be instances producing 3 or more invoices per month for a given customer. The only consolidation solution offered is their homegrown "SuiteSolution" called Consolidated Invoicing. I don't use it but have had demos and discussions. Really need something slicker.
  • Fixed Assets Management. I use their SuiteSolution, Fixed Assets Management. It's not part of core NetSuite so there are inconsistencies with the rest of the system, some performance annoyances, and weaker reporting capabilities. It's a better product than other fixed asset solutions I've tried!
  • A very recent frustration of mine is that it is not possible without customization to display tax amounts per line in a transaction. This should be native. The per-line tax amount is available in a saved search; the per-line tax rate is available to display on the transaction; the tax amount can be displayed in the PDF generated. Why not show the amount in the system? Fortunately, it's easy to create a custom field/column that multiplies tax rate with an amount to give you tax amount. Pretty minor in the scheme of things, but fresh in my mind.

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.

Through creation of various dashboards and KPIs the user does not really need to get very technically involved. They simply need to understand how to fill out a form, and through proper workflow creations they can be alerted when it is time to provide the necessary information or perform a necessary action to complete the next phase of the business process.

Most of the time the performance is very good. Pages load in a few seconds; financial reports take less than 5 seconds; basic searches take a few seconds. But performance can be sporadic throughout the day and cause the run time to triple.

In my opinion, the best place to go to answer your NetSuite functionality questions is their Online Help. It is excellent. For true support questions, NetSuite offers a Knowledgebase to its customers. Also, for ERP, NetSuite has licensed accountants that provide support. With any support organization, you must be thorough in describing your issue though.

NetSuite has several different support levels - http://www.netsuite.com/portal/services/support_main.shtml

Executive involvement is critical. Make sure you have a good handle on the metrics you would like to ultimately manage. Work as a team to document your business requirements. Whiteboard often. Understand NetSuite's best practice capabilities.

Have a central person identified to handle all report and analysis requests (ie - don't allow multiple people to create reports; have one person create reports and distribute them to decision makers via the NS dashboard or whatever form). Make sure you understand critical dates and develop the project plan accordingly

We selected Netsuite over Financial Force because at that moment Netsuite had a localization feature we needed to consolidate financial information from a company outside the US and they had the feature for the accounting rules of that specific country.

Because it has a relatively low price of entry for the base modules and then you pay per user, you can start out small and expand as you need to. I've seen it used with 1 user all the way up to hundreds of users. Imagine experiencing all that growth without implementing a new ERP system!

Return on Investment

Aralco Inventory Management

  • Short training time reduced costs and increased sales which increased ROI
  • Less downtime which reduced costs and increased ROI
  • Good customer support which boosts employee morale which leads to efficiencies and higher sales which increased ROI
Jeff Looby, CPA profile photo

NetSuite

  • Very positive impact! Our old accounting system needed constant day to day maintenance between modules to get accurate reporting. Manufactured items were not calculating costs correctly so reports were never accurate.
  • The cloud based platform has save me SOOOOOOOOOOO much time not maintaining servers, workstations etc. Adding users and work stations are as simple as just having a computer with internet access.
  • Dashboard reminders really help me keep track of everything going on (or going wrong) within our organization. Problem troubleshooting is much easier with Netsuite.
