It is sometimes difficult to get staff buy-in to ERP systems for two main reasons: Employees may balk at learning new software and processes, and be reluctant to replace their favourite stand-alone applications. But, the pain of the transformation process is worth it compared to the frustration and wastage of time in many organizations where employees (unhappily) put up with an all-too-common common workplace challenge: App overload, a problem smart ERPs like NetSuite are designed to solve.
If you’re running a modern business, the advantages of using an ERP system should need little introduction. With an upgrade to NetSuite, you sweep away outdated, time-consuming and error-prone methods of handling data and replace them with a single centralised and integrated cloud system, leading to massive efficiencies right across your business. And just one of these efficiencies lies in streamlining staff costs and human resources.
Whether it’s a new employee that needs to be trained in NetSuite, re-educating old users, or a company that recently bought NetSuite, the benefits are not realised immediately or do not materialise until the users fully embrace and are productive with the new processes and applications.Below are some tips to accelerate the time period and even make it as short as possible.
SuiteScript is a powerful tool to extend NetSuite’s core functionality or to automate customer-specific processes. With all scripting however, the potential exists for errors to come up. I’m going to show you how to do some basic script trouble-shooting.
If you ask 10 different companies to define cycle counting, you will probably receive at least 15 definitions. In addition, many professional organizations have their own definitions for cycle counting. The good (or bad) news is that all of these definitions could be applicable to your business. What’s important, then, is determining which one(s) is best for you.
Marketing templates typically make use of CRMSDK (Customer Relationship Management Software Development Kit) tags, which act like the tags you use when you mail merge in Microsoft Word. In NetSuite, however, a CRMSDK tag is replaced with the corresponding information from the type of record it refers to without having to create a spreadsheet of data or import or export any information. The tag can include data from custom fields on the record if needed.
