The ability to customize it to create custom fields that are reportable, and then to be able to write script behind it to automate other processes that might otherwise be manual is great.

To go into a little more depth - tracking our clients who've chosen NetSuite over other traditional ERP systems, my view has changed. 


Originally, we thought clients were reacting to the multi-tenant cloud architecture, and the resulting 4 month NetSuite implementations versus traditional ERP's 9-12 month consulting-fest of billable $225 hours. 


But NetSuite's competition reacted with shorter implementation project plans and brought up cloud-based delivery models for the same traditional code base. 


Then, we believed that greater cloud-based integration and 300-some odd available SuiteApp curated functionalities were the drivers. 


But as the other answers here indicate, it turns out that the decision turns on one or two features - usually different for different clients -  but one client likes that the spreadsheet downloads contain both cell value and formula, another likes creating saved-search reports without having to call in consultants to code reports. 


Our conclusion came down to realizing that the programs created for the internet, by definition, had to be created, coded, and developed in the late 90's when the internet came of age. Among other things, the open architecture and focus on creating a development community/app store (a la Salesforce or iPhone) is a huge difference from the proprietary codebases of traditional software. Instead of using proprietary languages to keep pirated copies of the traditional software off the market, NetSuite put the user first with a more open and flexible option - and let's face it, the internet itself is the ultimate middleware. 


So it's the modernity of the made-for cloud (NetSuite, Acumatica, Intacct and others) that is the real advantage. Seemingly every traditional ERP now comes in a cloud flavor, but to talk to the traditional ERP resellers, it's still the same 6-8 month implementation slog - even if it's presented initially as less. 


And now, in a wildly churning market of CIOs and CFOs, we're seeing the second and third generation of NetSuite users - having used NetSuite at a prior company - now seeking limited scope implementations at their new company. Our latest consulting response works with companies to access their internal ability to take on more of the implementation tasks themselves and properly scope the NetSuite implementations - we're seeing clients go live at 75 - 80% of implementation estimates - one client went live in June having used only 60% of the projected billable outside consulting hours. That and staff augmentation posting an internal System Admins for the duration of implementation.


Anyway - besides the first-mover advantages of cloud-based ERP, NetSuite changed the ERP market from on-prem to cloud-based and every competitor has attempted to copy - usually not understanding the actual 'why' NetSuite is the dominant US market player. 


Oracle's development push to localize for foreign markets is replicating the US success in country after country. 


Anyway - that's what we've seen - given, it's not the largest sample size, but I think we're capturing trends

This review was written in 2018 - See Update Below: We just brought up a pharma manufacturer client on NetSuite. They do contract manufacturing, and while they technically hold the 'manufacturer of record' with the FDA, it is essentially a distribution effort. The actual drug records are held by the CMO (contract manufacturing organization) and the traceability is done by the 3PL (third-party logistics) operations. 2019 Update: NetSuite for Pharma has really expanded - conquering the validation hurdle that kept pharma companies out of a cloud based program that updates every 6 months has been solved!

What don't they tell you about ERP? Turns out there's plenty left unsaid. There's actually an 80% marketwide failure rate measured by cost overrun, time to go-live and expected functionality - granted, getting the system up a month later isn't the end of the world, but a 2x budget overrun is no laughing matter.  CIO's have also expressed disappointment in having sufficient budget to finish th...

Over the past few months, political coverage reminded me of a Winston Churchill quote – “A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get it’s pants on”. Living in a world of competing politicians and contentious media, there were seemingly plenty of lies for both sides to yelp about. I thanked my lucky stars that in the business of ERP, we don’t deal in lies as the c...
