Vicky Lim (CA)
Accountant

Vicky is our financial accountant and started with us in July 2015.

Liberate I.T. is dedicated to selling, implementing and supporting NetSuite to our customers around Australia. Liberate I.T. was founded and managed from day one by people with deep experience in ERP implementations. A lifetime of experience has taught us that ERP systems are only as good as the consultants that implement them. For that reason Liberate I.T. has chosen a team that includes a mix of implementation consultants, all of them NetSuite specialists. We’re focused on robust and full implementations of NetSuite and supporting our customers afterwards. We are a service company who wants a long-term, enjoyable and mutually beneficial relationship with our customers. Liberate’s I.T.’s consultant team include:

  • Australian and New Zealand sourced consultants with hands on business experience gained as Financial Controllers, Subject Matter Experts and System Administrators at NetSuite sites.
  • Consultants with deep guru-level NetSuite knowledge; mostly gained while working at NetSuite Philippines. We pride ourselves on the depth of understanding within our team.

We come recommended.

By gaining an in-depth understanding of your business goals, our team will work to uncover exactly what’s holding you back, and then tailor a NetSuite solution to meet your unique needs.

ECOSTORE

Liberate I.T. really understood our business and how to customise the NetSuite system as we needed. They offered elements that we knew we needed, but hadn’t thought of – like multiple currencies. We still chat with our Liberate I.T. team weekly about bits and bobs, assistance and tweaking.

Heather Richards

ECOSURE

Liberate I.T and NetSuite were right for us, for our needs and for our size. Our previous solution’s steps were out of order, so it created a lot more work at the other end. NetSuite enabled us to focus on proper throughput – it’s helped us reflect on and improve our manufacturing processes too.

GO HEALTHY

It has been a pleasure working with Liberate I.T. over the past 10 years. They have great capabilities across NetSuite implementation and consultation, and helped us modernise and transform some very old-fashioned and dysfunctional business processes.

Marina Hirst Tristram

Tasman Bay Food Group

We needed a tool that was powerful and versatile enough to handle demand planning, warehouse management, that had freedom of ease for customisation – and was able to bring the full staff to the system regardless of whether they were on or off site. We knew Liberate I.T. and NetSuite could deliver.

TOOLWARE

As we went through the process of selecting a replacement ERP solution for our growing business, NetSuite and Liberate I.T. came out consistently on top. The architecture that’s built for the internet stood out – as did the desire by Oracle NetSuite to be number one in their category.
