Likelihood to Recommend

Microsoft 365 Business

Office365 is well suited in companies that work with a lot of information, and handle a lot of projects that need to be reviewed periodically by managers or directors for statistics or Business Analytics. Also it is appropriate for software development teams since they add the Microsoft Teams app, this tool is very helpful and let you manage software development projects organized and in a clean way. Otherwise, it is not recommend to use this product for small projects or business, due to the fact that practically you don't need the most of the services they provide. Probably in a small company all that you need is an Outlook account and Word, Excel and PowerPoint, that could be provided by another less expensive license.

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

Microsoft 365 Business

  • The whole solution that provides a program for all of your basic to intermediate day to day business needs.
  • Programs that function seamlessly together with formatting that works the same across the board.
  • Controls and features that are common across multiple programs make them easier to learn, use, and teach new users.

NetSuite

  • NetSuite OneWorld allows a business to automate its intercompany elimination processes at month's end. If set up and maintained correctly, the system can fully automate this process, which for many businesses involves a lot of manual work (in Excel!)
  • NetSuite's audit trail throughout the system is outstanding, tracking changes by user, change type, date/time. You can easily see who made which edits to the database and when. This is often lost or non-existent in other platforms.
  • NetSuite is highly customizable to your business' requirements. Through specific modules, SuiteFlow and SuiteScript, the possibilities are almost endless, but what is great about NetSuite is that the standard functionality is suitable for many businesses.

Cons

Microsoft 365 Business

  • Some formatting issues in Word documents can be frustrating, like lining up indents/margins.
  • Pattern recognition features in Excel aren't available in all other Microsoft programs like MS Project which can create a lot of time-consuming repetition.
  • MS Outlook search functions could use an "advanced search" feature to help find that specific email you're looking for.
No photo available

NetSuite

  • NetSuite does have great customization capabilities, however, this can also make it difficult to track and maintain custom workflows and scripts as business needs change, especially with different subsidiaries having different process requirements. Essentially, the more you customize the system, the more you need to maintain documentation for reference.
  • NetSuite has a fantastic reporting tool called a "Saved Search." For financial and other similar reports, you must use the NetSuite "Report" feature. This reporting feature is not as flexible as the Saved Search and I have found that certain reports cannot be customized as required using the "Report" feature.
  • The Project Management module still has some work to go before it is flexible enough for companies to use NetSuite for their own customized processes. The module is fairly inflexible, and at a previous company we had around 10-15 enhancement requests alone relating to this module.

Overall, the usability is great. From a typical user perspective, the e-mail function has been seamless and is actually improved with the larger mailbox size limits and attachment size limits. The new tools that we have used so far are great and we plan on using more this summer as we work on Teams and SharePoint sites.

Depending on what your assigned role is in Netsuite, you have different access to the system. While every staff member has different access, views are still consistent - everything is under the heading it should be and I can still figure out things even if accessing through someone else’s view.

Everything is linked together so you can move back and forth easily.

You can customize your views, based upon what I need to see or find important to me

For what I need Microsoft 365 Business to do for me, it does a great job in giving me the good results. If you have a fast computer, then this software will load without any problems. If you use or need to use Excel a lot and your files have a lot of data, then you need to make sure that you have a computer that has a fast processor and a huge amount of ram or Microsoft 365 Business was crash and not function properly. I have not experienced this personally but I know people it has affected. Overall the software is great.

Alternatives Considered

Microsoft 365 Business

I actually use both Google Drive's Tools and Microsoft 365 Business. Both have their strengthens and weaknesses. I choose Microsoft 365 Business because I already have a long time history with the products provided by Microsoft and I use Excel every day. I use Google Drive for those projects that require the attention of multiple people at the same time. Microsoft 365 Business is great for the solo projects. Microsoft 365 Business is great for huge amounts of data especially data for Excel. Excel can process a huge amount of data very quickly and help you create awesome reporting that looks fresh and clean.

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.

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

Microsoft 365 Business

  • It has helped managers share essential business information, such as project updates and introduction of new recruits and corporate initiatives.
  • We've used Excel to improve sales reporting. Now, we have a much better understanding of our customer buying patterns.
  • We use Outlook as our main communication tool with customers. Without it, we wouldn't be able to sell to them.

NetSuite

  • Netsuite has allowed us, through native functionality along with customizations, to create sophisticated rules that apply to our business. Things like approvals, order routing, alerts, and custom workflows have dramatically improved our business.
