We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"I would say that the solution is highly configurable."
"I have found there to be many features, such as manufacturing, accounting, financials, inventory, and purchasing."
"The user interface is very good."
"The most valuable feature in NetSuite ERP is the user interface."
"It's integrated into everything well so you can navigate and use it in a very simple way."
"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."
"The most valuable feature is that it works according to how the Internet works."
"NetSuite ERP is good for a trading company that involves buying and selling."
"It is stable and scalable. In the S4HANA plain version, they have new dashboards and things like that."
"The solution links everything and allows us to integrate into our entire supply chain."
"The guidance SAP offers for implementing the product is clear and the online resources are great."
"The tool selection is really robust and scalable for multiple scenarios."
"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."
"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."
"The solution could be more stable."
"The solution is not user-friendly and it is complex to use."
"If you do go through an implementor, you need to be careful that they are actual implementors and not just resellers."
"What needs to be improved is the development in the other areas and other businesses that can use NetSuite."
"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."
"The initial setup can be complex, depending on the environment."
"When it comes to the SAP PM material's module, it would be nice to see the inclusion of predictive analytics."
"They can improve the interface. It has a client-server kind of interface, which is kind of old."
"There have been some pain points in moving from SAP to S/4HANA, but the company seems to be staying on top of those issues."
"The price of the solution is quite high."
"There is an annual license required to use this solution."
"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."
"When people buy ERP, it's a competitive situation and the pricing is paramount."
"I feel the solution is expensive when it comes to what can be obtained with open source software."
"The pricing is competitive with other products at that level in that category."
