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

1 May 2014 | BlueBridge One

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

NetSuite ERP takes 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, NetSuite ecommerce sites and EPOS.
