NetSuite Offers Industry-Specific Capabilities and Integrations

A versatile and adaptable Enterprise Resource Planning platform, NetSuite serves a broad range of industry-specific needs and integrates easily with other applications.

By allowing all aspects of your business to be controlled from a single Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) platform, NetSuite keeps the data flowing seamlessly throughout the entire company. This not only supports better decision-making, but it also reduces the need for disconnected software systems, spreadsheets and manual processes.

For specific industries, NetSuite offers functionalities that address companies’ needs, solves their technology pain points and helps them future-proof their operations. Leveraging the experience it has gained by supporting over 34,000 customers in 217 countries and territories, NetSuite provides the tools these organizations need to be able to run their businesses more efficiently.

And if your company is already using one or more popular third-party applications like Salesforce, Shopify, WooCommerce or HubSpot, there’s no need to rip-and-replace those systems just because you’re implementing NetSuite. The ERP “plays well with others” and, as such, provides integrations to a wide range of third-party applications.

For example, NetSuite Connector lets you set up data-mapping between the ERP and your existing ecommerce storefronts, point of sale (POS) systems, online marketplaces and third-party logistics providers. By automating the transfer of data, NetSuite keeps your vital information centralized. This eliminates the need for manual data entry, reduces costly errors and delays, and cuts down on the number of processes managed with spreadsheets, email and phone calls.

Once in place, NetSuite’s integrations provide benefits like:

  • Improved inventory management
  • Easier tracking of items across multiple locations
  • More precise inventory cycle counts
  • Automated order management
  • Faster, streamlined order processing
  • Automatic sending of orders to third-party logistics (3PL) providers, vendors or other distribution locations
  • Automated order management
  • Simplified accounting
  • The automation of repetitive tasks like transaction recording and payables management
  • A single source of truth that the entire organization can depend on
  • The list goes on…
