Stepping up to the plate – Building on your knowledge to advise clients as they make the leap to ERP
When your clients grow out of their original accounting system, cloud-based NetSuite ERP is a must-include in the review. Trusted by 30,000 companies world-wide, including 60% of all start-ups looking to IPO, NetSuite is the original cloud ERP, with heritage and stability back to 1998. For the past 3 years NetSuite has been the fastest growing Financial Management System in the World.
So what is NetSuite, and what makes it so different?
NetSuite brings together all the “point” systems your client has successfully grown up with. For example, a company might have successfully used a system which included Xero, Unleashed, Sugar CRM, WorkflowMax, an e-commerce site and a fair few Excel spreadsheets.
This system worked well in the early days but now the integrations are becoming stretched and the number of manual interventions required to keep everything in sync is becoming onerous. Reporting is a mess and takes days.
By having one single unified database, information is instantly available to all users and provides one single source of the truth.
“As a growing business, we really needed a sophisticated ERP platform to help us introduce more efficient business processes, as well as help manage the complexity associated with a global business, trading in multiple geographies, languages, and currencies,” says Ben Irving, Chief Operating Officer, Mons Royale.
NetSuite is centred on role-based dashboards which guide users to their next activity and allows management to see company-wide KPIs and alerts.
NetSuite is a simple system to learn, allowing companies from 5 users to hundreds of users to finally “own” their mid-market ERP system. This is important, as having in-house capability to evolve NetSuite, means NetSuite evolves as companies evolve.
So what does NetSuite provide as an ERP system?
NetSuite ERP connects a business across finance, sales, service, order processing and fulfilment, running a company’s business end to end.
- Financial management – multi-subsidiary, multi-currency, multi-location
- Order processing
- CRM – Sales Force Automation and Marketing Campaigns
- Inventory management
- Project management
- Service management
- Time Sheeting and Expenses
And it’s not just for moving up to the mid-market.
While a perfect next step for companies born in the cloud, who already know the benefits that systems like Xero bring, thousands of businesses have also made the move from their aging on-premise mid-market systems like MYOB EXO, Accredo, Microsoft Nav, Sage, to NetSuite’s cloud business management suite.
“For the first time, we have a single source of truth available from our headquarters in New Zealand, which enables us to make more strategic business decisions, as well as deploy our most valuable resources on growing the business, versus back office business administration.” adds Ben Irving
