"I would say that the solution is highly configurable.""The user interface is very good.""The most valuable feature in NetSuite ERP is the user interface.""The most valuable feature is that it works according to how the Internet works.""The project management aspect and the timesheets are valuable, especially for ensuring that our milestone billings are automated properly. From a manufacturing perspective, it is more to do with the entire management of the inventory, the overall finance, consolidation of books of accounts, and managing the profit and loss in a more effective manner.""It's integrated into everything well so you can navigate and use it in a very simple way."

Cons
"The implementation could be simplified, it's complex.""The solution is stable but not agile."

More Infor M3 Cons »

"In terms of the main improvement to NetSuite is the talent itself. It's grown so fast and there are about 25,000 companies running on it, and it's a relatively newer system compared to other competitors. It's growing so fast that the talent base in the partner organization (there's about 200 of them), is pretty thin.""Some of the features around the payroll and payroll taxes and management of that are lacking. We had to outsource some of that because we found that the functionality isn't there.""It would be great if they offered localization for Central America.""What needs to be improved is the development in the other areas and other businesses that can use NetSuite.""There is a lot of room for improvement. Multiple manufacturing features need to be updated on NetSuite. More functionalities need to be added. I think there are a lot of functionalities coming out for warehouse management systems and manufacturing automation via advanced manufacturing functionalities. I think they need to improve a little more on those aspects and make it easier on the scheduling aspect.""If you do go through an implementor, you need to be careful that they are actual implementors and not just resellers."

Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
"When people buy ERP, it's a competitive situation and the pricing is paramount.""It is completely on a subscription basis. We pay yearly and, and you do not have to do anything on a monthly basis. Prices depend on the organization's scale and all those things, but they are doing a good job with the pricing."
