Maximising the benefits of M2M in multichannel distribution

26th November 2014

The Internet of Things and M2M

The Internet of Things (IoT) is slowly but surely inching nearer. A number of trends are supporting this:

  • Retailers of electrical goods such as Dixons Carphone preparing for the arrival of smart consumer electronics
  • The rapid rise of smart utilities with Demand Response as a model for reducing energy consumption and costs
  • Increasing use of M2M (Machine to Machine) communication to deliver real-time data for supply chain optimisation

More than just Connected Cabinets

Mobile based M2M is driving much of this wave of activity and interest. In the US, Verizon, and in the UK Vodafone, are two players that are driving the market. Verizon has introduced digital signage across New York City, powering the next generation of outdoor advertising. This year at Mobile World Congress 2014 Vodafone introduced the concept of 'Smart Retail', and showed version 2.0 of the Vodafone Connected Cabinet which reports its location, operational status and stock levels in real-time.

Berg Insight forecasts the number of mobile M2M connections in the global retail industry will grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 12.6% during the next five years to reach 33.3m connections in 2018.

M2M in today's multichannel is about more than connected cabinets. It could be an SKU bin in a warehouse feeding your e-commerce and retail operations, or a stock of perishables in an FMCG environment; or POS terminals integrated with your ERP system. M2M is set to play an ever increasing role in shaping the efficiency and success of multichannel businesses.

All live on 2014.2

27th October 2014

The phased rollout of NetSuite Version 2014.2 is now complete and all customers are live on the new version. From feed back it appears that most users are happy with the new look and feel, with only a few expressing reservations. Most feel the screens are less cluttered. With a 800 plus strong product team in place one can expect NetSuite will continue to accelarate the roleout of new features and enhancements in coming releases.

There are however some new features anounced as part of 2014.2 which are still in the process of being rolled out. These features are being rolled out in the form of SuiteApps and are due to be released in comming months according to the latest documentation. Some of these SuiteApps to look out for when they are released are:

1. Accounts Receivable Dunning (Currently targeted for release in October 2014)

You will be able to use the Dunning bundle to set up an automated AR dunning process to help you manage the collection of your debtors. The Dunning feature will come with predefined dunning evaluation workflows that you can set up to run on a schedule. When the system runs the dunning evaluation workflow, it will determine which customers and invoices need to be dunned, and automatically send dunning letters by email.

Accessed by installing bundle 57386 "SuiteL10n"

2. 3-Way Match Vendor Bill Approval (Currently targeted for release in October 2014)

This bundle will match the vendor bill details to its corresponding purchase order and item receipt. If any discrepancies are identified, the bill will submitted to a designated supervisor for approval. Otherwise, the vendor bill will be automatically approved. Any discrepancies will be noted on the bill, which then can be reviewed by the approver. After the bill is approved, it can then be processed for payment. This should help the accounts payable to release payments more accurately and also reconcile their balances more quickly on a regular basis, rather than wait until the end of the month to investigate differences between Purchases Orders, Item Receipts and Bills.

Accessed by installing bundle 16707 "NetSuite Approvals Workflow"

3. Requisition Approval (Currently targeted for release in October 2014)

Purchase requisition functionality is new to NetSuite. This particular feature will give users the ability to customise the approval routing of a purchase requisition, through the Advanced Procurement Approvals SuiteApp. You will then be able to designate the initial and succeeding approvers of a pending requisition request. Approvers will be notified via email if a request has been submitted to them for review and action.

Accessed by installing bundle 57060 "Advanced Procurement Approvals"

4. Daily Shipment Detail Report (Released)

This report is added to the Supply Chain Management SuiteApp. It provides a list of all items released from the warehouse on a daily basis. It helps you keep track of these items by showing both pickup and shipment details on the generated report. The report provides daily information on new shipments per status. If multiple shippers are used to process shipments, the shipment information is grouped by Shipping Method, and the report information for each Shipping Method starts on a new page.

Accessed by installing bundle 47193 "Supply Chain Management". Advanced Shipping" needs to be enabled.

4. Electronic Payments (Released)

Although the Electronic Payments bundle (it effectively provides BACs and Direct Debits functionality) has been around for a while now it has seen a bit of a face lift in 2014.2 with the addition of a number of new features including the ability to apply vendor or customer credits when paying bills or accepting customer payments and the ability to support early settlement or term discounts.

Accessed by installing bundles 45178 "NetSuite Electronic Payments" (Free version - for one company/country only) or 21147 "NetSuite Electronic Payments for OneWorld" (Paid for version - for multiple subsidaries)

How finance teams can get a better view of Business Intelligence

13th October 2014

The challenge of obtaining an accurate view

Getting an accurate view of your company’s operations is often a challenge. Businesses that have grown slowly over time may have developed their systems organically, adding additional applications when required. This means data is frequently fragmented and scattered across several systems.

Spreadsheets are often used to bring data from different silos together. However these can be time consuming to put together. Without real-time links to all the source information systems that enable a global refresh of the data, such spreadsheets are out of date as soon as you have created them.

Add-on analytics tools are also an option. However, they tend to be expensive to implement, and may lack key Business Intelligence components and ease of access to make them practical.

Key components of Business Intelligence

So what are the key Business Intelligence components that finance teams need for both a holistic and detailed view of business operations?

  • Role based dashboards that deliver personalised insights to meet each finance user’s need
  • Quantitative metrics and KPIs to evaluate the success or failure of various activities within each department
  • A real-time view of KPIs across the full 360 degree operations of your business

Our new guide helps finance teams keep in step with growth

17th September 2014

BlueBridge One guide available for free download

Our latest guide '10 Ways an Effective Financial Management Solution Facilitates Growth' is designed to help businesses understand how rock-solid financials support growth. The guide '10 Ways an Effective Financial Management Solution Facilitates Growth' provides a detailed discussion on the factors that influence the ability of the finance function to keep in step with growth.

Strengthening economy

The economy recovery continues to strengthen, improving bottom lines. In many businesses senior management is looking to invest in new technology. During the recession budgets have been tight. A lot of companies have soldiered on with legacy IT systems. Or worse still, may have deferred investment decisions, forcing them to stick with manual, spreadsheet based accounting and business management processes.

Legacy systems and manual processes mean finance can't keep up

As growth takes off, legacy systems and manual accounting processes can make it difficult for accounts teams to keep up. Legacy systems are seldom fit for purpose. Manual processes undertaken by teams that may have been trimmed during the recession will find it difficult to accommodate increased workloads without the expense of scaling up through hiring.

Integrated finance function

'10 Ways an Effective Financial Management Solution Facilitates Growth' helps those in charge of the finance function to understand how integrating the finance function across operational areas eliminates time consuming manual processes, eliminating the potential for mistakes by enabling accuracy. Across the business this lets staff be more productive and perform more effectively.

Developing economies outstanding opportunities for wholesale distributors with NetSuite cloud-based ERP and online stores powered by SuiteCommerce

28th July 2014

Land of opportunity

The growing middle-class in economies such as China and Brazil is well documented. As the global economy climbs out of recession and we look to where this wave of prosperity is due to hit next, it is clear that Africa is a land of opportunity and offers outstanding growth prospects for wholesale distributors with the right technology in place.

Africa has created 37 million new stable waged jobs over the last decade. If this trend continues it is on course to create another 54 million in the next 10 years. This is dragging economies across the continent up with it, with requirements for everything from infrastructure and utilities to domestic and luxury goods and business services. In Africa there is a growing consumer market. 90 million African households have joined the world’s consuming classes in 10 years.

NetSuite competitive advantage for meeting demand from growing numbers of mid-earners

NetSuite provides wholesale distributors with the competitive advantage to meet demand from the growing middle-classes across the world. NetSuite cloud-based ERP and e-commerce solution enables:

  • Direct to end user sales using e-commerce
  • Support for country & continent distributor relationships and power business processes
  • Support for country & continent retail/e-commerce outlets

Legacy, on-premise ERP applications simply cannot match this capability.

The roll-out of NetSuite 2014.2 has started

8th July 2014

The roll-out of NetSuite release 2014.2 has started. All customers are expected to be live on the new version by mid-September. Over the next few months we will look at the new features applicable to product and service companies as well as the general features applicable to all Users.

Release 2014.2 promises a number of new features across the board including a revamped cleaner looking User Interface which you will ideally need to familiarise yourself with prior to the upgrade. There will be ample opportunity for you to do this in the form of Release Previews and free on demand training available from the Support tab on your dashboard.

If you are a product distribution company then the following are some of the new enhancements that may be of interest to you:


1. Daily Shipping Detail Report

With release 2014.2 the new Daily Shipping Detail Report will provide an end-of-day shipping report that can be generated on a daily basis to show a summary of all the packages picked up by a driver at any given location.


2. Distribution Resource Planning

The release 2014.2 Distribution Resource Planning will enable you to improve inventory management across locations by creating distribution networks that can trade specific items with each other in response to sudden changes in demand for your products. The system will provide a list of sourcing recommendations for transferring inventory across your locations within the network which should be less costly than having to purchase additional inventory from outside suppliers in order to meet customer delivery deadlines.


3. 3-Way Matching

Currently 3-way matching of the purchase order, the vendor bill and the item receipt effectively only takes place after the payment once you post your variances to the General Ledger. With 2014.2 when a vendor bill is created, the system will automatically match the invoice information to the corresponding purchase order and item receipt, and identify any discrepancies. Then using workflow, bills with discrepancies will carry a pending status and require manager approval for payment processing. The accounts payable department with then be able to effectively perform 3-way matching before releasing Vendor payments.


4. Average Costing Method for Serialized and Lot Numbered Items

Previously NetSuite supported average costing at the item level but not at a serialised or lot numbered level. With release 2014.2 average cost is updated each time items are received into inventory and there is no need to manually track serial and lot numbers to determine cost.


5. Customer Centre

In the current version you are generally limited in terms of customising the standard Customer Centre. With release 2014.4 you will have a lot more flexibility as well as the ability to manage product lists available through the Customer Centre.


6. Shipping to Multiple Addresses

Currently internal Users can apply different shipping addresses to individual sales order line items however web shoppers cannot. In release 2014.2 web shoppers will also be able to select different shipping addresses by line item on checkout as well as choose different shipping methods.


7. Purchase Requisitions

In release 2014.2 you will be able to create a purchase requisition without specifying which vendor will be used.


8. Purchase Contracts

New purchase contracts will enable you to make purchases with negotiated terms more quickly and easily

Next month we will review the general features, available in release 2014.2, applicable to all NetSuite users.

EU VAT Changes 2015

7th July 2014

European Union VAT

As can be seen in the diagram below most countries around the world have some form of VAT (Value Added Tax) system in place.

VAT Enactments Timeline

In the EU all 28 member states act as a single market and share one common VAT system. If you trade in the EU then you should to be aware of some of the more basic rules and compliance requirements that apply. As with most taxation regimes the EU has many rules and exceptions to the rules that you will need to consider. Below, however, we highlight some of the more general VAT guidelines that apply to trade within the EU. If you have already setup the NetSuite International Tax Reporting bundle in your NetSuite account then it will be good to know that most of these guidelines and compliance requirements are automatically accounted for when you process transactions within NetSuite.

VAT on the Sale of Goods

Business to Business

Where ever you ship from is the place of supply for recording and compliance purposes. VAT levied is generally based on the Ship to address. If you are shipping domestically your Standard rate of VAT is applied. If you are shipping cross border within the EU then the Zero rate is applied and VAT is self-assessed by the business customer on “Acquisition” in the member state. To ensure compliance you as the seller must retain evidence the goods left your member state. You must also keep a record the Customer VAT number and the invoice narrative, as well as file the necessary EC Sales List & Intrastat reports.

Business to Consumer

Generally if you as a vendor are shipping goods to B2C customers in another EU member state then your member states standard VAT rate is applied. However this is not the case if you breach the distance selling thresholds requiring separate VAT registration for sales in other EU member states.

VAT on the Supply of Services

Business to Business

Generally B2B services are taxable where the Customer is established. Generally VAT is charged if the vendor has an establishment in the same EU member state as the customer. If the vendor does not have an establishment in the member state VAT is not levied by the vendor but rather is self-assessed by the customer via the reverse charge mechanism. A customer VAT Number is required for invoicing and Intra-community cross border reporting.

Business to Consumer

Generally B2C services are taxable where the EU vendor is established. Except that since 2003 digital and electronic services provided by non-EU vendors have been taxable where the private consumer is resident. With effect from 1 January 2015 this exception will also apply to EU vendors providing digital and electronic services.

Next month we will look at some important changes to EU VAT reporting that will come into effect on 1 January 2015 and the implication to companies trading in the EU.

Gartner: ERP is a buyers’ market in 2014 and NetSuite is one of the fastest growing

25th June 2014

NetSuite rated #1 fastest growing

A Gartner report ‘Market Share: All Software Markets, Worldwide, 2013, published on March 28, 2014 rated NetSuite the fastest growing financial management system (FMS) within the top 10 by market share and the only pure cloud software provider among the top 20 FMS vendors on a global basis.

According to Gartner research, NetSuite demonstrated significant market share gains on many metrics for Financial Management Systems. They include:

  • On a global basis — NetSuite's market share growth rate of 41.6 percent was nearly four times the rates of its closest competitor within the top 10 by market share.
  • In the mature APAC region, defined as Australia, New Zealand, Japan and Singapore, NetSuite was named the fastest-growing FMS vendor within the top 10 and the only pure cloud-based FMS in the top 20
  • NetSuite was the fastest growing and only pure cloud FMS vendor in the top 20 in EMEA
  • In North America, NetSuite was the fastest growing FMS vendor, the seventh ranked FMS vendor and the only pure cloud vendor in the top 10

Why this growth?

Clearly high growth areas of the ERP market are driven by companies impatient for results and systems that can deliver them.

The customers driving growth see cloud-based systems as more agile and responsive to their changing business model needs. Cloud-based systems enable companies to achieve the entirely new level of performance required to survive and grow in today’s competitive world.

Forbes.com reported on the Gartner research. It identified cloud-based, rapid development and delivery, the ability to scale quickly to changing business models, elastic pricing and resource allocation models as key attributes responsible for growth. It also said there is a need for cloud-based ERP to deliver value to keep subscription revenue streams growing.

The same article identifies that nearly every enterprise software company selling traditional on-premise software relies on revenue from maintenance to survive. It also characterises them as complacent and with a tendency to procrastinate about innovation.

NetSuite: One Integrated Application to Manage Your Entire Business

As the world's #1 cloud business software provider, NetSuite helps thousands of organisations streamline and run their entire business in the cloud. Shop anywhere, pay anywhere and receive merchandise anywhere—that's the omnichannel shopping experience customers are demanding. NetSuite empowers organisations to deliver on those expectations with an end-to end solution that brings together POS, ecommerce, CRM and marketing, inventory and order management, business intelligence and financials on a single platform.

NetSuite takes ERP to the next level by letting you execute an omnichannel supply chain strategy

23rd May 2014

Traditional approach to ERP

Some text books and works of reference define ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) software as a suite of integrated business applications that enable end-to-end business management.

Traditionally these areas may be broadly defined as:

  • Product planning, cost and development
  • Manufacturing
  • Marketing and sales
  • Inventory management
  • Shipping and payment

Is your ERP software keeping in step?

The accelerating tempo of business resulting from changes such as globalisation, shorter product lifecycles and the development of omnichannel elements like eCommerce and social media, means that ERP needs to keep in step if businesses are to remain competitive.

The fact is that because of the significant costs attached to traditional on-premise ERP systems, many smaller and mid-market wholesale distribution businesses either lack or soldier along with older, legacy systems. As a result they have been unable to match the pace of market change.

Get started with NetSuite and BlueBridge One to execute omnichannel strategy

NetSuite is a cloud-based ERP solution that takes traditional ERP to the next level. As a cloud-based solution NetSuite redefines the cost and brings ERP within the reach of businesses that think it is beyond their budgets. NetSuite integrates additional capabilities that enable wholesale distribution businesses to succeed in today's highly competitive environment. The inclusion of CRM, eCommerce and EPOS (Electronic Point of sale) as part of a NetSuite deployment enables wholesale distributors to execute an omnichannel business model supported by an integrated supply chain strategy.

Beyond ERP: Leverage the cloud and execute a multi-channel strategy with NetSuite

1st May 2014

Has your ERP solution kept in step with the cloud?

Traditionally, mid-market wholesale distribution companies used complex collections of spreadsheets to manage their businesses. Luckily many recognised the benefits of switching to database driven Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems. Originally these were provided as on-premise solutions, operated on in-house servers and maintained by internal personnel. Those running wholesale and distribution businesses on such systems enjoy significant efficiency gains that transform the processes which are used to run the business. However, some providers of ERP software have failed to keep in step with the advances in technology that have enabled cloud applications.

ERP plus cloud equals improved competitive advantage

Cloud ERP solutions take the benefits of ERP to the next level. The SaaS business model enables providers of ERP software to deliver all the business process efficiency of on-premise ERP with the key advantages of the cloud:

  • No CAPEX
    • There is no requirement for investment in hardware resources such as servers, storage or back up or essential software such as database engines
  • Flexible and scalable
    • Accessed using standard web browsers on internet connected devices anywhere in the world and easily scalable for growing businesses
  • Easy integration
    • Avoid complex and expensive integration projects and junking existing investments in systems

Wholesale distribution businesses that use ERP enjoy improved competitive advantage by using a cloud-based solution. However, with NetSuite the advantages are amplified even further.

NetSuite plus cloud equals improved competitive advantage and multi-channel capability

NetSuite enables wholesale distributors to have a truly integrated approach to the multi-channel by providing a true omnichannel experience for Customers. NetSuite’s one integrated business suite provides multiple customer touch points including mobile devices, ecommerce sites and EPOS.

NetSuite ERP manages the critical processes which not only run the business but also integrate digital channel strategies such as enabling direct online sales and driving lead generation with email marketing automation.

Using the new NetSuite StickyNotes

25th April 2014

Sharing relevant, urgent or important reminders within the context of transactions and records used by your employees is now easier than ever with the introduction of the new StickyNotes feature in NetSuite. StickyNotes lets users conveniently share relevant and important information across your organisation. With a few clicks, any user can create and attach notes to a NetSuite record. As a result, anyone can send a reminder, ask a follow-up question, start a communication thread any write anything else online that would ordinarily require an e-mail or a pad of paper.

The feature enables you to:

  • Attach private or public notes to a NetSuite record or transaction, or to a specific field on a form.
  • Manage all your notes across record pages in one place with the StickyNotes Board. You can also sort, filter, archive, delete, reply to, and search for your notes as well as alternate between grid and list views.
  • Customise your notes to suit your preferences. You can change note colours to distinguish between high and low priority items. You can also change the note and font sizes for better readability.

Installing and Configuring StickyNotes

  • The feature is released as a SuiteApp (BETA) bundle which an Administrator needs to install and configure in your NetSuite account. Detailed instructions can be found in Help by searching on "Creating StickyNotes on Record Pages". In summary the steps to install and configure StickyNotes are as follows:
  • Install the StickyNotes bundle. To do this go to CUSTOMIZATION > SUITEBUNDLER>SEARCH & INSTALL BUNDLES. Search for the bundle called "StickyNotes". Click on the bundle "StickyNotes BETA" to install it.
  • If you want to make StickyNotes available to all users on all NetSuite records then go to SETUP>COMPANY>GENERAL PREFERENCES. On the Custom Preferences tab find StickyNotes BETA and select "Include All Record Types".
  • Individual users can select their own preferences by going to HOME>SET PREFERENCES. On the Custom Preferences tab there are options for each individual user to specify their own personal preferences.
  • As part of configuration you can also limit StickyNotes to specific records, change default fonts and note sizes, as well as change the default priority names, note colour, and level of importance. To configure any of these options refer to the instructions found in Help by searching on "Creating StickyNotes on Record Pages" under the "Configure StickyNotes" section.

Using StickyNotes is very easy. Once you have enabled StickyNotes you should find the menu option "StickyNotes" alongside the action buttons on all the relevant record/s. Additional assistance is available in Help if required. Registered customers can also always contact our NetSuite Support Team for additional assistance.

Using NetSuite Memorised Transactions for Recurring Transactions

4th April 2014

Having NetSuite automatically create recurring transactions for certain revenue or expense items such as monthly rental can often save users wasted time re-entering the same transaction over and over again. From the experience of our NetSuite Support Team many NetSuite users are unaware that recurring transactions can easily be setup in NetSuite. Most users enquire how they can automate recurring transactions in NetSuite not realising that the Memorised Transaction option is available and is relatively simple to setup. Not only that, but it is often able to do just what they need it for which in most cases is a simple recurring transaction.

There is also of course a separate advanced module, called NetSuite Recurring Billing that you could also purchase and use if your billing rules were more complex. However, if your requirement is simply to generate the same value recurring transaction at regular intervals then the standard Memorised Transaction feature is all that you need. 

These steps can be followed in creating a recurring transaction:

  1. Create a new transaction that you want to recur. For example you may create an invoice that you want to recur monthly.
  2. Then instead of saving the transaction go to “More Actions” and select “Memorise Transaction”. A new page should open up. 
  3. On the page select “Automatic” if you want the transaction to automatically recur in future.
  4. Specify how often you want the transaction to recur by selecting the “Frequency“ of the transaction e.g. monthly.
  5. Select the date you want the recurring transactions to start from by inputting “Next Date”.
  6. Enter the number of recurrences of the transaction you require by entering the “Number Remaining”. For example enter “12” if you want twelve recurring transactions to be created starting on the “Next Date”.

As you will see there are also other parameters which you could also define if you want to further refine the recurring transaction setup. Once the Memorised Transaction is configured your recurring transactions will then automatically be created for you.

NetSuite Version 2014.1 - New features available to all customers

4th April 2014

Over the last two months we have highlighted some of the key new enhancements introduced in version 2014.1 for both Product and Service sector companies. By mid-April all NetSuite customers will have been upgraded to version 2014.1 so this month we review some of the general enhancements available to all NetSuite users in version 2014.1. The following are some of the key enhancements that are now available in version 2014.1:

  1. Splitting the Setup menu in “Setup” and “Customisation”
    Over the years the “Setup” menu has gradually grown fairly bulky with a lot of new menu options being added with each new version release. One of the options included a sub-section called “Customisation” which by itself has already grown quite bulky. In order to reduce the size of the Setup menu and to speed up access to the Customisation option a new separate “Customisaton” menu has been added to the top level structure alongside the Setup menu. This should help speed up access to customisation options.
     
  2. Statistical Journal Entries
    This new feature lets you create “Statistical” type GL accounts. These statistical accounts can then be used to as a basis for allocation income and costs. For example you may want to allocate Rent across different departments based on the square metres used by each department. With this new feature you will be able to record not only the monetary value of the rent but you will also be able to record and report on the square metres used by each department and then use that as the basis for allocating the rent across department. Bear in mind if you want to automate these allocations you will need access to NetSuite’s Advanced Financials module.
     
  3. Advanced PDF/HTML Templates 
    This new (currently Beta) feature allows more control over the layout and formatting of printed transaction forms. For example you can access fields from records linked to the transaction record and/or results rows from saved searches joined to the transaction record. This means you now have substantially more control over the layout and content of the printed forms and you are no longer restricted only to the current available layout and content in the columns as you were used to prior to the introduction of this new feature.
     
  4. New Drag and drop file uploading
    Prior to version 2014.1 each file that you uploaded to the NetSuite “File” tab had to be uploaded one at a time. Now users can now upload files into a record directly from the desktop by clicking and dragging single or multiple files to the NetSuite record in edit mode. We trust that at least some of these enhancements introduced in 2014.1 will benefit you in some way or another. We look forward to discussing the next batch of enhancements with you later on in 2014 with the introduction of NetSuite version 2014.2 which we expect sometime around September.

Sports & leisure distribution and merchandising benefit from integrating CRM, ERP and e-commerce

28th March 2014

CRM in sports & leisure marketing

Sports & leisure marketing has embraced Customer Relationship Management (CRM) as an essential tool for communicating with sports team fans and leisure enthusiasts. Database driven email marketing systems and integrated social media tools have made an enormous impact.

This innovative use of CRM technology has been highly influential in driving revenue. Twitter has opened a direct and immediate channel to allow fans and players to interact in ways that have not been possible before. During the recession, sport and leisure has proved very resilient when compared to other segments of the entertainment market that rely on discretionary consumer spending.

ERP and e-commerce for merchandising

3 Key Analytics that determine the growth of your e-commerce site

28th March 2014

Number of visitors to a site is the first statistic that any online retailer looks at. But there are two other key statistics that are critical.

Looking at your site analytics dashboard - be it Google analytics or any other tool - can be a daunting exercise given the vast amount of data and measurements available.

There are three key statistics that should be measured regularly and are very good indicators on how well your e-commerce business is performing:

1. Visitor Numbers

2. Conversion Rate

3. Average Order Value

The goal for every e-commerce site is to increase online sales. So you might be asking why is sales missing from the above measures? The reason is that the combination of the above three will determine online sales. Every time a visit results to a buy, a conversion has taken place. In other words you have made a sale. The amount of that sale is determined by the Average Order Value.

When devising a marketing strategy and trying to grow online sales, these three measurements are key to understanding how different aspects of your site are performing:

1. Visitor Numbers

The most obvious statistic to start with. Of course it all starts with getting more visitors to your site. However there are many techniques available for better targeting of your online marketing campaigns that result in more relevant traffic.

When looking at visitor numbers it is important to distinguish between visitors, visits, and page views.

A visitor is one person who can make a number of visits to a site. For example one visit in the morning and then another visit in the afternoon. During each visit that person views a number of pages which is tracked as page views. Number of pages per visit is also important when it comes to measuring user engagement.

2. Conversion Rate

More visitors doesn’t necessarily mean more sales. What determines sales is what percentage of your site visitors are converting to buyers.

Conversion rate is the best indicator on how well targeted your marketing campaigns are. A successful marketing campaign is targeted for the right target audience. If you have done customer profiling and understand the profile of your best customers then a marketing campaign can be targeted towards that audience. Driving more of the right visitors to your website means better conversion. Pay Per Click advertising such as Google AdWords or Facebook advertising allows targeting your ads for the right search terms or audience profile.

3. Average Order Value (AOV)

A visitor places an order on your site, but how large is the order? If you do a good job of cross selling, related product recommendations, and promotional offers, then the size of the orders is likely to increase. Hence this is a key statistic to keep a close eye on. Many site improvement and product placing factors can effect this figure.

AOV = total sales revenue divided by total number of sales

Keep in mind the same customer could initiate multiple transactions; AOV determines sales per order, not sales per customer.

In general terms, AOV can help you understand whether customers tend to order more expensive or less expensive products or how many products they tend to order.

This figure can have varied importance based on the website strategy. Also the importance of the AOV can vary between first time buyers and returning customers. For example if your returning customers tend to place larger orders then it makes sense to focus on converting first time buyers on small orders.

Is 2014 the year to focus on tablets?

11th March 2014

According to eMarketer’s latest forecasts Tablet commerce will triple this year to reach £4.74 billion ($7.52 billion) and take 10.4% of total UK retail ecommerce sales. In comparison with the overall mobile commerce growth, which is forecast to double, indications are clear that tablets are growing the fastest in the mobile landscape.

For the first time, more m-commerce sales will occur on tablets than smartphones, with tablets expected to account for 58% of all retail m-commerce sales in the UK, vs. a 40.5% share occurring on smartphones.

33% of tablet owners use their device to shop online, while recent research by Adobe shows that tablet users actually spend twice as much as smartphone users when purchasing through their device.

These statistics highlight the importance for retailers of ensuring they have a complete and intuitive tablet-enabled experience.

2014 is the year many retail decision makers are faced with questions about where to focus their multi-channel budget? Should the focus be on smartphones or tablets? Is responsive design the all in one solution or will investing in a dedicated tablet app be the best investment? The pros and cons of responsive design were explored in more detail in my previous article.

Whilst the mobile device scene and shoppers behaviour across multiple channels is changing rapidly, retailers are playing catch up.

Very few retailers are taking full advantage of the opportunity to extend sales to mobile and tablet platforms. Implementation varies greatly by device. For example, there is much more optimisation for smartphones.

A recent study by the Internet Advertising Bureau UK (IAB) found that while 74% of the top 50 retailers in the UK now have a mobile-optimised site, only 8% have one optimised for tablets.

I the past 12 months we have seen many new types of tablets with different screen sizes come to market. Not long ago the iPad was the only dominant tablet, but that is changing now. In most cases the tablet screen sizes makes it possible to browse standard desktop websites with relative ease, but best user experience can only be achieved with a mix of responsive and bespoke tablet site design, which can adapt to different screen sizes.

The main trend adopted by large retailers so far has been to redirect users to a mobile version of a site when the site is accessed from a smartphone but still show the desktop version when the site is accessed from a tablet. Adoptive design would mean that the mobile version of the site is responsive, adapting to the larger screen size when viewing on a tablet.

However, a unique tablet experience can only be achieved by a site that is designed specifically for tablets or an app. The iPad is still by far the most commonly used tablet and hence would be the obvious first choice when developing an app. App development requires significant investment but is the only option that provides full control over the user interface and access to all native functions of devices such as an iPad.

Making effective use of NetSuite Global Search

6th March 2014

The effective use of the NetSuite Global Seach function is an important element in the day to day use of NetSuite. Most Users know how to use the Global Search function and use it on a daily basis. However most Users are not aware of some of the special characters that they could use as part of the search string to help filter down the results of the search into a more manageable list.

Below are some of the lesser known special characters to help you when performing a Global Search from your NetSuite dashboard:

Special Characters Use Example Result
: or
^
Used to narrow searches down to a specific record type e.g. Leads only le:dental or
cu:dental
Would return a list of leads or customers containing the keyword "dental"
OR or
space or
-
Used to separate keywords north OR south or
north south or
north - south
Would return records containing either "north" or "south"
+ Used to include inactive records cu:dental+ Would return a list of leads or customers containing the keyword "dental" including inactive customer records
" " Used to include exact text matches only for keywords and record types

cu:"ABC Dental" or

"customer":XYZ

cu:"ABC Dental" would only return a list of customers with the name "ABC Dental"
% Used as a wildcard in numeric searches inv:202% Would return a list of invoices starting with 202 e.g. 20210, 20211, 20212 etc.
:: Used to show search results in a new tab or window inv::202% Would return the same list of invoices starting with 202 e.g. 20210, 20211, 20212 etc. but in a new window

Notes

1. If you have enabled the Global Search Customer Prefix Includes Leads and Prospect at Home > Set Preferences then as an example cu: would return all leads, prospects and customers instead of only customers. The same would be true for using pr: for prospects and le: for leads.

2. To always include inactive records in your Global Search results, go to Home > Set Preferences, click the Reporting/Search subtab, and check the Include Inactives in Global and Quick Search box.

Understanding omnichannel and making it work for wholesale distribution

3rd March 2014

It’s a changed world: Say hello to omnichannel

The world is multichannel. Or so we once thought. It turns out to have evolved and is now actually omnichannel.

The digital age and the Internet exploded the traditional channel ‘cartel’ of broadcast advertising, print media advertising, direct mail and PR. Early on the Internet was seen as a single channel. However, technology development led to the proliferation of the other digital channels that are now multiplexed within it. E-commerce; email; social media; online ads; AdWords; affiliate advertising are some obvious ones. And it’s not just the power to communicate. It is also the ability to make a purchase.

One way to look at the channels is as a list of menu items. Depending on your market sector you choose the items you need, assemble them in the most appropriate way and structure activity across the channels to reach your targets. This is often referred to as an integrated approach and is widely accepted as a cornerstone of successful marketing.

Taking multichannel to the next level

Omnichannel takes this concept to the next level, emphasising the need for a strategic and joined up approach. Omni-channel reinforces and supports joined up communications across the different routes through which customers touch your brand.

For those retailing and e-tailing fashion and lifestyle goods, embracing an omnichannel approach helps to meld the 4Ps - product, place price and promotion - to create more seamless customer experiences.

One of the ways that seamless customer experiences are enabled is through fulfilment. Accurate stock reporting; slick payment, shipping and delivery operations; smart after sales service for warranty or out of warranty maintenance and repairs. This is all part of the omnichannel. It puts the customer at the centre and this is pivotal in shaping the positive customer experiences that drive loyalty and advocacy and which ultimately contribute to increased sales.

Adapt to omnichannel and disruptive change with NetSuite and BlueBridge One

More and more we see technology’s power to be a facilitator of disruptive change. This upsets established business processes. The traditional supply chain model of manufacturer-wholesaler-distributor-retailer is a good example of this. With smart technology a manufacturer can deal directly with end-user customers. And so can wholesale distributors.

NetSuite allows fast growing and mid-size wholesale distributors to add comprehensive omnichannel capability to their existing business model through a fully integrated business suite that includes the advanced SuiteCommerce engine and Retail Anywhere. BlueBridge One is a UK based NetSuite solution provider able to provide your customers with a full Ominchannel experience using either NetSuite's SuiteCommerce Advanced or SuiteCommerce Mid-market platforms. Please click here to register for a FREE 14 day trial of NetSuite.

One key consideration of omnichannel is the continuing growth of mobile. NetSuite cloud-based ERP and SuiteCommerce powers a great shopping experience on any internet connected device. In any language, currency or business model, NetSuite ERP and SuiteCommerce enable wholesale distribution businesses to adapt to world altered by disruptive technology and embrace the omnichannel.

NetSuite Version 2014.1 - New features for Service Companies

3rd March 2014

As discussed last month NetSuite Version 2014.1 is currently being rolled-out and all customers are expected to be on the new version by mid-April. Last month we reviewed some of the new functionality available to product distribution companies. This month we look at some of the new features that are specifically applicable to SERVICE companies.

Release 2014.1 of NetSuite incorporates a number of new features related specifically to service based companies. If you are a service company then the following are some of the new enhancements that may be of interest to you:

1. Project Profitability

In previous versions only estimated project profitability was available. With the new Job Costing feature enabled you can calculate costs for labour based on tracked time, and account for those costs directly in your general ledger. There is now also a new P&L sub tab on the project record itself displaying the real-time current revenue, cost, profit, and margin for your project.

Additionally the new Project Budgeting feature enables you to set cost and billing budgets for project labour and expenses at both the project and task level.

New reports available for project reporting are:

  • Project Cost Budget vs. Actual
  • Project Billing Budget vs. Actual
  • Project Task Cost Budget vs. Actual
  • Project Task Billing Budget vs. Actual
  • Project Profitability

2. Resource Allocations

You now have the ability to allocate resources to projects based on availability, skill sets, and other criteria. After a resource has been allocated, or reserved to a project, a project manager may then decide to assign that resource to a specific task. There is a new graphical resource allocations chart that provides visual management of your resource allocations with the ability to edit existing allocations and create new allocations directly from the chart. There is a also a new SuiteFlow approval process for approving of resource allocations.

3. Resource Skill Sets

You are now able to add information to employee and vendor records about skills and expertise and then search that employee database for the best matched project resource.

4. Advanced Project Templates

New project templates enable you to create project records for projects your business performs repeatedly. You can also now create a project template from and existing project. Previously you could only copy an existing project and then modify it.

5. Project Dashboard

Similar to your main Home dashboard, you can now access a project dashboard with information specific to an individual project. Previously, this information was only available on several different tabs and sub tabs within the project record.

6. Time Sheets

The new Time sheets feature enables you to track time in bulk using time sheets rather than individual time entries. If you track time for projects, cases, tasks, or events you can now use time sheets to submit a whole week's worth of time at one time. Previously, time entries had to be recorded by a single date and the weekly time sheet option did not permit editing of time entries.

Next month we will look at some of the new general features unrelated to specific sectors only.

NetSuite Version 2014.1 rolls out

4th February 2014

The rollout of NetSuite Version 2014.1 has started. All customers are expected to be on the new version by mid-April. Read a quick summary of some of the new features being released with 2014.1 that are specifically applicable to product companies.

Unlike the last release 2013.2, which was primarily a maintenance release, this new release 2014.1 promises a number of new features across the board. If you are a product distribution company then the following are some of the new enhancements that may be of interest to you:

1. Demand Planning Enhancements

There is now better Demand Planning transparency, through the introduction of more transparency into the transaction order details, thus making it easier to validate your demand plan. Additionally there is a new control to help with prioritising orders by introducing a time fence which will recommend demand for a specific duration using:

  • Actual sales orders rather than the demand forecast on the demand side and
  • Supply-related orders that have already been committed on the supply side
  • Planning actions message to alert you to planning exceptions have also been introduced.

2. New Forms

Some new forms have been introduced:

  • Inventory Count - contains item information that is needed in the inventory count process.
  • Manufacturing Dispatch List - provides details of new and outstanding operations by work centre, which includes labour requirements per work centre, start dates, quantity information and tasks that are past due.
  • Manufacturing Traveller - that keeps track of which products need to be created or repaired and the steps needed for the specific tasks in creating the product which is passed from work centre to work centre as each manufacturing task is completed.

3. Warranty Return Management

You will now be able to set up warranty information for any item available for sale and register the warranty once the product is sold. Customers will be able to submit a claim, which you can validate to the warranty information associated with the item. Once verified you can issue a refund, repair or replace the defective item.

4. Improved Dropship and Special Shipment Syncronisation

If you use OneWorld you now have Dropship and Special Shipment synchronisation across subsidiaries to ensure intercompany sales orders and purchase orders used in any special order or drop shipment transaction are synchronised across subsidiaries. You may need this if for example data quantities change during order processing.

5. Item Specific Shipping

Item Specific Shipping allows you to now offer customers, with a free shipping coupon relating to a specific item, the ability to use the coupon for the one item and then also continue to purchase other items on the same order that are not subject to the coupon discount.

6. New Promotions Assistant

The new Promotion Assistant feature is a guide that helps you to create and manage a range of sales promotions you may want to setup.

7. Work Order Enhancements

You can now create a manufacturing work centre calendar to improve utilisation of the work centre. Additionally you can now monitor planned build-completion time for work orders against work center capacity. There is also support for Work Order completion validation which ensures that correct quantities are used and that the correct manufacturing sequence is followed.

8. PayPal Bill me Later

You will be able to offer your Web shoppers the option to pay you later using PayPal Bill me Later which offers more flexible finance options to the shopper

Next month we will look at some of the new features related specifically to Service companies.

What are the pros and cons of responsive design?

31st January 2014

A responsive website adjusts itself to different screen sizes so that it looks good no matter whether you are looking at it on a phone, tablet, or desktop.

From the point of view of the site owner, a site that uses responsive design only needs to be built once - you don't need to build a web version, a mobile version and a tablet version separately - so this usually saves time and money and is the biggest advantage of responsive design. Plus, any updates that then need to be made only have to be implemented on one site.

What are the drawbacks and challenges with responsive design?

The challenges are numerous: primary among them is that responsive will deliver more or less a web experience, but reformatted for mobile, rather than a true mobile experience. A mobile website (covered in more details in our November article) that is designed specifically for an iPhone or an Android smartphone provides a true mobile experience that is tailored for the small screen.

Also for responsive design, while only one set of HTML is required, the difference in the stylesheets to provide a custom mobile experience may well be so great that maintaining two sites is actually easier.

If you look as some of the leading retailers who already have extensive and complex websites, building a responsive design would be an enormous challenge. The reason being is that a true responsive design only works well when the site is designed from scratch to be responsive.

The best responsive designs start by thinking mobile first - not desktop first. A good mobile user experience usually translates well to desktop. The same isn't always true the other way round.

This is why so far responsive design has been primarily adopted by smaller businesses or new businesses. This can however change as the technology behind responsive design matures.

Adoptive websites

There are websites that are a mix of responsive and mobile websites. For example the BBC website actually redirects mobile users to a separate mobile domain but the mobile domain itself is responsive in that it adopts to different mobile or tablet screen sizes. For example if you turn the home page from vertical to horizontal three columns of content are being displayed instead of two.

Which option is best for SEO?

In the eyes of Google, does responsive design or traditional mobile design leverage a higher SEO value? I have drawn some conclusions from Matt Cutts video where he explains the SEO aspects in relation to mobile websites and responsive design.

Cutts said that both ways of doing it are proper ways of dealing with mobile traffic, and that they have a lot of help documents available to webmasters to ensure they are doing everything correctly, particularly ensuring rel=canonical is being used for mobile versions of sites. This is because the challenges caused by a mobile version is that your site ends up with two different url’s for each web page – one mobile and one desktop. When it comes to responsive sites this issue doesn’t exist if there is only one version of the site.

Matt Cutts states responsive design is the smarter way to go for SEO, primarily because you can have issues when creating a mobile version of the page if you aren't implementing it correctly.

In his video Matt Cutts says: "In general, I wouldn't worry about a site that is using responsive design losing SEO benefits because by definition you've got the same URL," Cutts said. "So in theory, if you do a mobile version of the site, if you don't handle that well and you don't do the rel=canonical and all those sorts of things, then you might, in theory, divide the PageRank between those two pages. But if you have responsive design then everything is handled from one URL, so the PageRank doesn't get divided, everything works fine."

Hence in conclusion, like many other things in life, I don’t think there is a clear right or wrong when it comes to choose between responsive design and a mobile website. It really depends on many different factors and unique needs of a business.

Setting up Custom KPIs with Comparatives

31st January 2014

Setting up a NetSuite custom dashboard KPI is reasonably easy as a user but it can be quite challenging getting comparative time range data to display. Read what setup is essential in order to display Custom KPI comparative date ranges.

If you want to display comparative data for different date ranges (or for that matter to display the data in a trend graph, KPI meter, or KPI scorecard) then you need to setup the Saved Search as normal. Bear in mind that if you want to show summary data for example sum total amount then the Search must have the SUM type (such as group, sum, or count) defined for the appropriate field on the Results sub-tab of the Search. In most cases this will show the KPI as expected but without comparative date range data.

In order to display comparative date range data in the KPI the Search must comply with certain additional rules:

  • You will need to remove any date range defined on the Criteria sub-tab.
  • On the Results sub-tab you can only have one field with a SUM type defined.
  • You will need to add a date column defined as a Filter on the Available Filters sub-tab.

If the type of search you've selected does not offer a date column as a filter this could be a problem. The only other solution is to try using a different type of search, for example, a transaction search to achieve the same results.

Expanding the sales potential of Wholesale Distribution businesses

30th January 2014

Channels through which to grow sales

The channels through which Wholesale Distribution businesses operate are varied and there are a number of operational areas through which it may be possible to grow sales. These include:

    • Retail - sales to retailers of new products or ranges, or increasing the number of retail outlets through which products are available by acquiring new stockists 
    • Wholesale - sales to other distributors, allowing them to expand their offer to their customers
    • International - opening up the business to distribute or sell products direct to consumers in overseas territories
    • Internet - direct sales to end users

Internet facilitates expansion into retail, wholesale and international

To many, the one with the most potential is the Internet. This is because internet channels not only enable Wholesale Distributors to reach consumers directly; it also facilitates expansion into retail, wholesale and international marketplaces. As many will be aware, most businesses that rely on moving volumes of product through the business are identifying that multi-channel is an essential consideration for success. The importance of mobile should not be underestimated. Smartphone and tablet sales indicate that the trend for online mobile shopping is continuing to increase.

However, the prospect of commissioning a full blown e-commerce presence raises a number of issues. Investment to get the infrastructure up and running; secure payment and an efficient customer fulfilment process may be immediate key questions that are seen as barriers to entry.

NetSuite cloud-based ERP with e-commerce

Many Wholesale Distribution businesses are discovering the benefits of cloud-based ERP as a means of quickly being able to deploy in new markets. NetSuite leverages the internet further with a fully integrated cloud-based ERP business suite that includes SuiteCommerce; an advanced e-commerce toolset for creating and a managing online presence.
