Mistakes can happen when there’s a good amount of stress rolling along but there are ways to prevent them from happening or worse case scenario, a way to fix them without a costly burden. The following are the top 5 errors that you could be making with NetSuite and some tips that can definitely ease your way through these obstacles:
1. Choosing the Wrong Implementation Partner
Looking for the right partner can be a total drag especially when there are so many of them to choose from. However, it can be difficult to find the absolute right one that fits your business model. Many of these NetSuite partners have experience in different services. Its best to explore your options before agreeing to partner up with some random implementation company that doesn’t align with your business processes and goals. Our team at SuiteDB has worked with various projects linking to all sorts of different companies. With our dynamic experiences working with divergent areas of industries, it is in our confidence that we can serve the best of our ability to promote the growth of your company.
2. Not Enough Training
Training your staff on how to operate NetSuite software are one of the most vital things you can do to keep your business up and running and can save you from costly troubles. But what you can do is to spend time and have your staff actively engage in the training process to know all the nooks and crannies of what NetSuite has to offer. NetSuite is designed to be simple however, without the correct training and support, it can feel overwhelming.
Learning something gradually is better than trying to learn something in a couple hours. Yes, it will be a cost to train, but this will help your business in the long run. Creating a test account that uses your company’s real data will allow your staff to practice and learn any new platforms or systems without affecting your live system data. With our help, we will ensure that your processes run smoothly as we can help with the training procedures.
3. Not Getting the Most Out of NetSuite
Are you really making the most out of this software? With the right support team at your service, it is wise to explore all the options of NetSuite and take advantage of what it has to offer. Sometimes we come across certain problems and we jump straight to the conclusion of throwing money at an unnecessary purchase that we think may solve our issues. If that’s really the case, it means that your team hasn’t dived deep enough into the NetSuite software to navigate all the possibilities of resolving these problems. That’s why, as mentioned before, it’s important to find a NetSuite partner who is very experienced in your industry of business and that they provide the correct training for your team.
4. Not Performing a Data Cleanse
If you’ve ever thought of migrating data from an older software, you must, and we really mean must, have a data cleanse before transferring it across your new clean system. You definitely don’t want to transfer any bad data over to your new clean system. The most common issue that we found regarding the migration process where loads of data end up in the wrong places, inaccurate invoices and transactions being made, multiple emails being sent out — basically a whole nightmare in the system. To avoid all the chaos, we advise you to clean your system of all unnecessary data before implementing. And that we can help you with.
5. Using NetSuite Blindly
Have you discussed about what your company needs in order to progress further down the road? Is each part of the system being utilized for its true purpose or is it being exploited because your staff doesn’t know what they’re really using it for? Discussing who’s doing what with the system helps keep things organized and ensures that the business needs are being met and are not missing. You may be shocked by the fact that the system could be used in the right or wrong manner.
