How to choose the right NetSuite solution provider

When selecting the best NetSuite solution provider for your business, there’s a lot on the line: cost, time investment, and resources.

No one wants to start over once on this path.

You’ve already chosen the right business management solution for your organization: NetSuite. Congrats – that in and of itself is a huge decision. Change in any form is disruptive, and it can be hard to know when the time is right to implement such a significant shift.

It may seem a bit daunting to follow up that massive decision with another, but perhaps equally important, decision: How do I choose the right NetSuite solution provider? Is it possible to find a NetSuite partner I can trust? Will they be able to deliver on time, on budget, and on scope?

How can you choose the right NetSuite solution provider the first time?

You’ll want to find a NetSuite solution provider who can demonstrate:

A proven history of NetSuite implementations

Not only will you want to consider the number of implementations your potential NetSuite solution provider has successfully completed, but you’ll also want to determine the industries and the sizes of organizations they’ve worked with.

On-time, on-budget implementations

Yes, you can do it! The ideal NetSuite solution provider will know to anticipate problems and understand which could slow the implementation down before they happen. They will be able to pinpoint what your specific organization will need for a smooth, successful implementation – and follow through on creating a system that your people will love.

Related industry experience

Experience is crucial. Not only will it translate into a more precisely tailored experience, but deep industry experience means your NetSuite solution provider will understand what is driving you to make the change in the first place. They’ll know what questions to ask to understand better where you want your company to be in one year, five years, and ten years.

Experience customizing the software to meet your needs

Can your NetSuite solution provider take the best-of-the-best technology, customize it to meet your every need, and then make sure you know how to use it and make the most of it for years to come? Ideally, they’ll also be able to offer you prebuilt customizations that can be layered right on top of NetSuite, further customizing your implementation.

Ability to provide long-term support

While it would be ideal for implementation to be a one-and-done affair, this isn’t how this process works. Businesses often need additional support, whether it’s ongoing training or further optimization. Ultimately, you’ll want a NetSuite solution provider who is committed to a lasting working relationship – and is vested in your long-term success with the software implementation.

Implementing a top ERP solution should be an exciting time for your organization. Done correctly, it can help your business grow and become more efficient. When you’re choosing a NetSuite solution provider, remember that with the right NetSuite partner, your team will get up and running more quickly – giving you better visibility into what's going on with your business so you can add value faster.

Depend on a NetSuite implementation partner that goes the distance.

We’ve got an implementation model for every need. And when you need continued NetSuite support, you'll still be talking to the same Crowe team you started with.
