These Are The Most Popular NetSuite Add-Ons
NetSuite is a powerful tool out of the box. However, your company might have unique needs, data from other programs it needs to integrate, or advanced functionalities that require additional features.
That's where NetSuite add-ons come into play.
NetSuite add-ons come in a lot of different forms: there are modules, integrations, and add-ons. Here's a breakdown of the types of NetSuite add-ons, as well as the most popular ones in each category.
What Are NetSuite Add-Ons?
NetSuite add-ons enhance the functionality of NetSuite or help integrate NetSuite with other software. It could include anything from adding a financial management system to the software, integrating NetSuite with Outlook emails, or installing an add-on that automates invoicing.
There are a few main types of NetSuite add-ons: modules, integrations, and add-ons.
The Most Common NetSuite Modules
NetSuite modules are additional functionalities that are built into NetSuite but cost extra to add.
NetSuite automatically comes with ERP and CRM functionalities. However, if you want NetSuite to handle other areas of your business, such as eCommerce or company financials, you'll need to purchase the module for that.
eCommerce (AKA SuiteCommerce)
NetSuite's eCommerce module is called SuiteCommerce. This is one of the most popular NetSuite modules because it brings a lot to the table for eCommerce businesses.
It supports global eCommerce websites, integrates with NetSuite's ERP and inventory management systems, and includes true SaaS upgrades.
A lot of companies want to optimize their financial data and accounting processes. That's why NetSuite's financial management modules are always in high demand by our clients.
From simplifying complex financial processes to providing real-time insights into your company's performance, the financial management modules can make your life a lot easier. You can choose from revenue management, fixed asset management, planning and budgeting, and more.
Supply Chain Management
NetSuite's supply chain management modules can help your company maximize resources and cut costs. We've worked with a lot of manufacturing companies and the supply chain management modules have truly helped some of them transform their companies and boost productivity.
These modules can help with demand planning, warehouse management, procurement, and quality management to name a few.
Popular NetSuite Integrations
Just because you're using NetSuite doesn't mean you have to stop using other programs. NetSuite integrations are used to connect data between other programs and NetSuite.
However, for NetSuite to be the source of truth for your company, it's important to ensure all of your company's data is contained there. This allows NetSuite to still provide meaningful insights and automation, even for data it isn't responsible for.
NetSuite integrations are created by third-party providers. They're easy to add on during the NetSuite implementation process or even after the fact.
You can browse through a list of available integrations on NetSuite's SuiteApp platform or simply ask whoever you licensed NetSuite with if they have their own integrations.
For example, here at SCS Cloud, we've created an entire suite of NetSuite integrations called SuperSync, where our clients can browse every integration we have available.
If you manage an Amazon store and also utilize NetSuite for other aspects of your business, you're going to want an Amazon NetSuite integration. This allows you to easily integrate orders, shipments, and inventory across all of your amazon stores.
You'll be able to integrate data from Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) and Fulfillment by Merchant (FBM) into NetSuite.
Integrating NetSuite with Salesforce improves sales efficiency and back-office automation all in one place. You'll gain high-level insights into sales data and can customize workflows as needed.
A NetSuite Salesforce integration is invaluable for companies that use both systems. Combining the data from two of these best-in-class software makes your business intelligence that much stronger.
Shopify is quickly becoming one of the most popular eCommerce management platforms. It makes sense for eCommerce companies to use both Shopify and NetSuite. However, the data won't talk with each other unless you install a Shopify NetSuite integration.
This integration allows you to sync orders, fulfillments, products, inventory, and customer information with NetSuite. You'll gain real-time visibility into the performance of your Shopify store.
Top NetSuite Add-Ons
NetSuite add-ons are created by third-party NetSuite solution providers to add functionalities to NetSuite.
We know it might sound similar to NetSuite integrations. In some instances, people use the terms interchangeably. However, NetSuite add-ons aren't always considered integrations, as they aren't always designed to integrate data.
Depending on the NetSuite solution provider you're working with, they could have their own version of NetSuite add-ons. Here at SCS Cloud, we've developed a wide range of NetSuite add-ons we call our NetSuite bundles. Here are a few of the most popular ones.
To solve the complexity and frustration of invoicing, we created a NetSuite add-on that consolidates invoices. This allows NetSuite users to consolidate invoices, easily apply payments to invoices, and even manage how invoices are sent to customers.
Billing & Payment Authorizations
NetSuite credit card processing is surprisingly complex. You have to choose from a variety of different gateways, processors, and acquirers. Some are NetSuite-certified while others aren't (and those can be a tad sketchy).
Instead of navigating this confusing world on your own, our NetSuite-certified team handles everything for you with a simple NetSuite billing and payment add-on.
