There are many factors to growing and building a successful business including the highly skilled individuals working together to pursue a vision and mission by delivering goods and services, providing exceptional customer service, retaining employees, and maintaining detailed financial records. On the other hand, there are many factors that can negatively impact a business including inefficient processes, miscommunication, inadequate allocation of resources, and poor leadership. These factors also don’t take into account times of uncertainty and unexpected challenges, such as supply chain issues and revenue interruptions. To help overcome these times of uncertainty, accountants must look for solutions to help them adapt. Thankfully, with NetSuite’s ERP software, companies can overcome these challenges and find a path to success.
Key Components of NetSuite
1. Consolidated Data Repository
We work with many clients who prior to NetSuite operate on Excel and several customized ERP systems. As companies grow and evolve, they continue to purchase software as needed. While this might work temporarily, over time companies discover that the individual systems purchased only support specific functions or a single department. With these disparate systems, companies see a major impact on their processes, and it eventually hinders company growth.
NetSuite delivers a single, consolidated data repository that allows companies to grow. This means companies no longer need to jump between multiple systems and risk data integrity. With a single cloud solution companies can increase efficiency by accessing documents in a centralized location, improve accuracy, reduce the number of complex workflows and improve visibility by creating approvals based on roles and departments.
2. Automated Processes
With NetSuite, you can say goodbye to manual work and introduce automated processes to free up resources. With our premier NetSuite-native financial automation platform, Automate, you can elevate your NetSuite environment and increase efficiency. We recently helped one company cut down 50% of their accounting workload. You can read more about their success story here.

3. Enhanced Controls
It is crucial for companies to protect themselves from financial fraud and stay compliant with government regulations and accounting standards. With NetSuite, you can feel confident that you are abiding by federal, state, and local regulations and decrease the amount of back-office support. Improve visibility by building workflows in NetSuite and allow certain users to review and approve. Elevate your NetSuite environment with our Approval Workflow automation solution that allows for easy configuration of all approval requirements, and even lets Employees – regardless of their NetSuite access – approve transactions right from their Email Inbox. Adding this workflow provides great oversight and reduces the risk of errors.
4. Real-Time Business Analytics
With a single, consolidated data depository, users can gather detailed reports and analyze data to make informed business decisions. Companies can track cash reports daily to identify changes or fluctuations to quickly pivot and prepare for times of economic uncertainty. Furthermore, users can create reports, dashboards or KPI’s. If you are interested in creating a customizable report and don’t want to spend hours looking up how to create a new report, our Consultants are happy to help you through our Premium Support plan.
