Why you need NetSuite integration
NetSuite is a powerful cloud ERP solution with the potential to help you operate and analyse your entire business. But most businesses running NetSuite aren’t utilising only NetSuite modules. Rather, they rely on a stable of best-in-class applications that offer the right mix of features, functions, and affordable options for their unique operating environment. And so, for most companies to unlock the full potential of NetSuite, they must integrate with other systems and applications such as databases, EDI, CRM, Marketing Automation, Payment, and more. The diagram below demonstrates just a fraction of the applications that may impact core business activities.
A connected, data-driven business. It’s every leader’s dream!
NetSuite Integration offers a path to link complementary applications and unleash the full potential of a truly streamlined and interconnected tech stack. Imagine… cross-departmental visibility, improved collaboration, 24/7 data reporting, greater efficiency, cost savings, and actionable insights across platforms.
But while the impact to your business upon completion may be transformational, the reality is that 55% to 75% of all Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) implementation and integration projects fail to meet their intended objectives (Source: Gartner).
The complexity and scale of NetSuite integration projects can seem overwhelming, which is why you need a plan of action to take it step by step. In this post, we’ll cover the four steps you need to address to make your integration projects successful.
Step 1: Unify and organise your integration team
The foundation of a successful integration is getting everyone on board, articulating the case for integration (why is this project worth it?), championing collaboration, and deploying communication and workflow tools that empower the team.
Step 2: Audit your NetSuite situation
In one sense, all major software integration projects share commonalities, but in another sense, each project scenario is completely unique. To give your team the best chance of success, you must audit your situation, thoroughly understanding the current reality and future requirements to prepare for the project ahead. We have created a series of questions on how to unify and organise a powerhouse integration team.
Step 3: Map the integration process
Best practice checklists can be valuable for helping you manage complexity, track progress, and eliminate areas of concern. We created a checklist to map your custom integration process.
Remember, a project of this scale is a journey, not a destination. Expect to continuously test, adapt and improve, adding new integrations and supporting the evolution of your NetSuite integration over time.
Step 4: Assess integration options
Now it’s time to get down to the details. How will you navigate a project to integrate NetSuite with your other platforms, in-house systems, and cloud applications? Before you dive into internal project management nuts and bolts, consider one key question: Given the complexity of the NetSuite integration under consideration, do you need to partner with an outside integrator?
Following these four steps puts you on the right track to a successful integration. Read our eBook for a more in depth look at these steps.
