Using Transaction Item Options in NetSuite

Posted by Sarah Emery, Senior Consultant on May 25, 2021 3:11:04 PM
If you maintain inventory that has variable attributes (commonly size, color, or style) in NetSuite, then you are probably familiar with matrix items. Matrix items are an excellent option for organizations that sell products which are fundamentally similar in form (i.e. t-shirts) but differ in one or two categories (i.e. size and color), as they allow you to group all of the related the child items under a common parent. While these capabilities are extremely useful for products with options that need to be tracked distinctly, there are some cases where item options need to be captured on transactions for informational purposes and are not actually separate products. In these scenarios, transaction item options might be a better fit. In this blog post, I’ll provide an overview of transaction item options to help you decide if it’s the right approach for your requirements.

Posted by Sarah Emery, Senior Consultant on Jan 20, 2021 5:56:00 PM

One of NetSuite’s hidden gems is their robust catalog of SuiteApps, which are add-on bundles built by NetSuite that enhance existing functionality and are often available completely free of charge.

Posted by Sarah Emery, Senior Consultant on Dec 22, 2020 1:01:14 PM

The impact of the internet on how retailers do business cannot be overstated, especially in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. Retailers used to be reliant on physical inventory in on-site warehouses to fulfill orders, but a growing number of businesses never even see the products that they are selling as drop-shipping has become a common approach for meeting customer demand in a timely manner. NetSuite offers native support for on-site fulfillment, drop shipments, and special orders, as well as mixing and matching all three approaches simultaneously. In this post, I’ll discuss how drop shipments and special orders are handled in NetSuite and how to best leverage the available configuration options to meet your business needs.

Setting Up DKIM to Improve Email Deliverability

Posted by Sarah Emery, Senior Consultant on Dec 2, 2020 3:51:35 PM
One of my favorite features of NetSuite is the way that it tracks bidirectional email activity for emails generated from within the system. Having visibility into communication activity related to a customer, vendor, or specific transaction record is an invaluable resource, but only if the initial outbound email is delivered as intended. NetSuite offers the ability to configure DKIM (DomainKeys Identified Mail), which is essentially a digital signature within the code of your email that can be read by internet service providers to help identify spam and improve the deliverability of your messages. While there are some slightly technical aspects of setting up a DKIM entry, even a non-technical user can do it once they understand the process. In this post, I’ll take the mystery out of configuring DKIM in your NetSuite environment.
