No sure I'm loving this program

2018-04-19

More headache than solving anything.

Pros

Easily get reports, graphs, data at your finger tips.

Cons

The support staff dont seem like they know how to use the program or that they weren't trained to do more than answer phones. Many times when calling in with questions, your placed on hold to ask a manager or supervisor. Very little help to solve the problems. I would wait till better versions are made before buying this product.

2017-06-27

Pros

The ability to customize the software to current workflows and processes.

There are a lot of addons for the software that seem as though they should or could be native. he reporting is sufficient for most all needs however when attempting some more complex reporting the report maker is less than intuitive.

Upgraded from old ERP system to Netsuite. Took 6 months to cut over to Netsuite and go live.

2017-08-22

Went from software that was designed in 90s to a always up to date top of the line software.

Pros

The program is cloud based, which is get for mobile use. If you can pull up the website, and have a decent size screen, then you get the full experience.

Cons

Many of the reports had to be manually exported and imported into Excel for data manipulation.

Billy Self

Netsuite. The heavy hitter for the little guy

2012-02-13

Netsuite gave our company the same features and functionality as our largest competitors at a fraction of the cost and no large investment in servers or managing an IT Dept. Information is power, and the piece of mind knowing that all of our company's vital information in stored on mirrored off-site servers is priceless. The expandability of Netsuite allows me to propose aggressive growth ideas knowing I have the right software backing me up.

Pros

Inventory hits the books in real time. User roles are customizable.

Cons

More of a suggestion: When you go Netsuite, it's a great idea to get 2 or more internet providers. If your main line goes down due to construction, the 2nd ISP can keep you from sending staff home for the day.

a NetSuite view from the perspective of a user and partner

2017-11-07

Pros

Rule of thumb with pricing: probably a 5th to a 10th of the price of DEMANDWARE or HYBRIS but INCLUDING webdesign AND fully integrated REAL TIME solution

Cons

This can be monitored and maintenanced but still needs to be done.

Netsuite is one of those systems where you have a love and hate relationship.

2017-10-03

The ability to create customized reports based on the connecting feature of Netsuite.

Pros

The quoting system is a really simple and easy feature. It easily lists all the information needed such as items, prices, terms, and etc.

Cons

Trying to troubleshoot an issue or getting a hold of their support is really strenuous. In order to submit a ticket with them, you need to login via browser. If Netsuite is unable to be accessed via browser due to system down or other issues, you are basically out of luck.

After you climb a steep learning curve, NetSuite is incredibly powerful.

2018-01-09

We were able to have a single source of truth for our customer, vendor lists, for inventory, and for financials.

Pros

NetSuite is extremely extensible through external interfaces, 3rd party add-ons, internal scripting and through customizations.

Cons

NetSuite is usually quite reliable, but it can and will "get slow" from time to time, and there are infrequent outages that can last a few minutes to an hour or more.

NetSuite integrated solution

2014-04-29

The platform is extremely flexible and uses standard technology like Javascript to customize. Over the years the product has become more complicated as a result of adding in more modules and features, however once implemented and trained the ROI should be realized quickly.
