Organisations, especially charities and socially minded businesses, have unique needs that may require third party software, which is why default NetSuite sometimes cannot go far enough. Whether it means integrating software that was used with a legacy finance system or incorporating new software into NetSuite, NetSuite has the flexibility for these applications.
We firmly believe in an adopt not adapt strategy for NetSuite, but there are instances where custom solutions might be necessary.
With our certified developers we can integrate software with Open APIs into NetSuite; allowing you to couple the power of NetSuite with the benefits of your software.
3rd party integrations are a non-standard service so exploring this capability will require a discussion regarding organisation needs and structure. Get in touch for a free consultation, and we will see what we can do.
While we recommend using NetSuite's native Suite Analytics tool, many charities use Power BI (link to power bi page) as their data visualisation tool for their legacy finance system. We have created a NetSuite/Power BI build which allows our clients to couple the visuals of Power BI with the benefits of a NetSuite finance system.
NetSuite Payment processing is included as standard within an ERP license, but you might prefer your own solution. Other payment solutions can be directly integrated into NetSuite. Please talk to us if you are interested in integrating any third-party payment software into NetSuite.
Whilst NetSuite does offer an effective, native CRM, some organisations prefer to stick to the system they have been using. So long as they have an open API, it is possible to integrate third party CRMs into NetSuite.
If your charity or organisation is used to a particular ecommerce platform, being able to directly integrate these capabilities into NetSuite can bring an array of benefits. Online orders would be automatically recorded in NetSuite, in addition to stock levels and shipping information.
NetSuite Integration FAQs
It varies depending on the software being integrated, the complexity of the organisation and whether we have performed it before. Please contact us to receive a free quote.
Typically, native NetSuite is more than sufficient for an organisation’s needs. Reasons for third party integrations are typically if an organisation has a very esoteric function that NetSuite is not optimised for or if users prefer an alternative application. Whilst we recommend using NetSuite’s native tools, it is possible to supplant them with alternatives.
The timeline for a NetSuite integration can vary significantly. If the integration has already been performed, it is very straightforward to incorporate into your NetSuite build. However, if we need to create it from scratch, it will take considerably longer and has a higher cost.
With Cloud Doing Good, our integration service is highly flexible and adaptable. Creating custom portals, ecommerce integrations and more are all integrations we can do. Speak to us to find out more!
Much like a NetSuite implementation, a NetSuite integration’s timeline can vary widely. If it is a function we have done before, such as our custom NetSuite-Power BI build, you can expect this to be faster than a brand-new build. Other factors which can affect timeline are the complexity of your organisation and the scope of the integration.
We find that for the bulk of NetSuite customers, the core system with NetSuite modules and SuiteApps is more than enough to achieve their goals. However, sometimes an organisation’s operations demand a more custom approach. A NetSuite integration allows these organisations to couple the benefits of NetSuite’s security, scalability and simplicity with the applications they find essential for their business processes.
Like any software upgrade, there are always risks regarding security, stability, and bottlenecks in the business process. We ensure that these are minimised by only adding additions to the NetSuite build, we do not interfere with the underlying security measures. As we have a team of certified administrators and developers, we minimise other risks through careful planning and our expertise.
