We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The most valuable feature in NetSuite ERP is the user interface.""I have found there to be many features, such as manufacturing, accounting, financials, inventory, and purchasing.""NetSuite ERP is good for a trading company that involves buying and selling.""I would say that the solution is highly configurable.""The most valuable feature is that it works according to how the Internet works.""The user interface is very good.""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."

"Everyone in the company is quite used to the Oracle functionality.""The complete product suite is good. The financials are good, it is the best product I've been working with is Oracle Financial. Supply chain manufacturing is very comprehensive and the connectivity, between all the modules, is seamless. They are all communicated well with one another.""I think one of the best use cases is centralizing supplier and customer data into our finance system. We identified there were so many duplicate suppliers and customers and so a lot of time was spent reporting.""The solution has other core processes that can be implemented with customers according to their needs.""Their great technical support is one of the most valuable features.""The initial setup is easy.""Oracle E-Business Suite is a stable product.""This solution offers customization. You'll have the ability to change and add your custom solutions and integrate them with the standard ones."

Cons
"What needs to be improved is the development in the other areas and other businesses that can use NetSuite.""It would be great if they offered localization for Central America.""The solution is not user-friendly and it is complex to use.""The solution could be more stable.""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.""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.""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."

"The interface is pretty old.""Sometimes I have issues with the performance tuning.""Areas for improvement would be that sometimes it's a bit rigid with customization and doesn't always facilitate region-specific requirements.""Earlier when our organization was small they chose Oracle because in the telecommunication industry everybody was using Oracle. Our company has grown to a size where our particularly billing phase has created some challenges and now we are looking at alternate solutions. There is not a billing engine or module that you can buy from Oracle that can be added to this EBS solution to fix our problem. They should add a billing module or engine to the solution.""It requires training before you can easily use this product, so it should be easier to use.""I would like an end-to-end in terms of processes. There are different modules, however, there's not that end-to-end that we are looking for in terms of process automation.""The reporting needs to be improved.""Movement to the cloud should be supported. Product support still needs to be improved."
