Any program (system, application, service, etc.) that has ever existed, big or small, was created with a purpose - to solve a problem. But, as your company grows, evolves, and adapts to industry changes, your needs change. And as your needs change, so do your problems.
That’s why it’s important to make sure any solution you choose is flexible, scalable, and reliable so that it can help you adapt to the ebbs and flows of running a business. NetSuite is used by over 40,000 organizations around the world. Why? Because it is a malleable cloud-based business management solution with built-in customization tools that make it easy for companies to adapt to an ever-changing environment.
As a best practice, avoid hard coding in any of your customizations to ensure that NetSuite remains flexible. This will save you time and money for any new changes you want to make in the future. You will not be forced to rely on the person who hard coded the customization for simple changes such as:
- Changing the item used by any scheduled script that runs overnight.
- Replacing the “from” email address on an automated customer notification.
- Modify the rules of the custom promotion on the sales order.
- Change the logo of a custom PDF.
- Remove access to any custom feature.
- Shutdown any custom feature that is no longer required.
NetSuite is a great solution that does not require hard coding for its customizations. It was built to be a flexible solution that is scalable for your company growth. If you notice that your partner is hard coding your solutions for the sake of a billing opportunity and taking away NetSuite’s flexibility, it might be time to take a deeper look at that vendor relationship.
Concentrus helps you leverage NetSuite at its full potential – and that includes guiding you through customizations that provide long-term, sustainable solutions in addition to solving the immediate business challenges that are impacting your company. And, because Concentrus is a partner that is truly “in it” for you, we take a different approach to customizations than your traditional NetSuite partner.
