Our Implementation Process
Any good NetSuite implementation service should begin with a lengthy discovery session. The longer the discovery session, the better planned and configured your implementation will be. At the end of the discovery process, we will have a "Business Requirement Document" that will act as the blueprint for the implementation. At eMerge our discovery sessions cover topics like:
- Business Processes and Workflows
- Data Migration and Integration
- Customization and Custom Scripting
- Users Roles and Permissions
- Reporting and Dashboard Configuration
- Project Timeline
- Training Needs
After we take our time planning your implementation we can begin the configuration process. If you have done your discovery phase correctly the configuration phase should be a smooth series of events. Some things eMerge covers during the configuration phase include:
- Setting Up Company Information - Company Name, Logo, Address, and Contact Details.
- Accounting Configuration - Configuring the Chart of Accounts, Accounting Periods, Fiscal Years
- Tax Configuration - Tax Structure, Tax Codes, and Tax Rates for the Organization.
- Configuring the Inventory Settings - Stock Locations, Inventory Counts, and Reorder Points
- Configuring Financial Statements - Balance Sheet, Income Statement, and Cash Flow Statement
- Assigning Roles and Permissions - Ensuring that the Right People Have Access to the Right Information
NetSuite training is an often overlooked part of the implementation process. However, well-trained users are the difference in adoption, ROI, and user experience with the NetSuite platform. eMerge makes sure users are trained in the following areas before going live:
- Record Management
- Reporting and Dashboards
- Searches and Saved Searches
- Best Practices
Testing is another often overlooked step in a NetSuite implementation. However, it is important to make sure that the user is getting what they paid for. So using the requirements we laid out in the business requirements document we test for specific outcomes. Some things we test before going live are:
- Order to Cash Process
- Procure to Pay Process
Go-Live is an exciting day for any NetSuite user. Go-Live is the day you find out how well your hard work during the previous steps will pay off. If we have provided NetSuite implementation services at a professional level, Go-Live day will be an exciting day where the user will finally be able to turn NetSuite on and use it as their system of record after weeks of preparation. Some things users can expect on Go-Live day are:
- Real Data Migrated from Legacy Systems
- Availability of All Features Licensed from NetSuite
- Close Communication from the eMerge Team
- Integrations Sending Real Data Back and Forth from NetSuite
After the implementation is complete it is still important for the team to keep in touch with the user to make sure they are getting the most out of the NetSuite system. The needs of users and the capabilities of NetSuite will be constantly evolving. eMerge will help users navigate new challenges and implement new features as they come out. Some services we provide in Post-Go-Live Include:
- Additional Training
- System Optimization
- Supporting NetSuite Updates and New Feature Rollouts
- Supporting New User Requirements
NetSuite Implementation Customer Journey
What can potential customers expect when they start a conversation with eMerge about their NetSuite implementation needs? The entire process usually takes around two to three weeks.
High-level conversation with eMerge business development team to discuss the scope of the project and timeline fit.
Meeting with eMerge Lead Functional Consultant and Lead NetSuite Architect to discuss the project in detail. The meeting will result in an estimate and an established timeline.
Follow Up Conversations
Sometimes these are required if there wasn't enough time in the initial meetings to get all of the important details scoped out.
The estimate is sent from our team and a negotiation/adjustment process can begin. The estimate is usually in a fixed bid but we do over time and materials on request.
After the estimate is approved, a final proposal is drawn up that will include prices, terms, and the expected timeline for the implementation. Both parties can sign this document to finalize the project moving forward.
If all looks good and all parties have signed, we can schedule the first "Kick-Off" meeting to begin your NetSuite implementation journey.
NetSuite Implementation Services FAQ
NetSuite implementation services vary in cost depending on the number of add-on modules you need, customizations, integrations, data migration requirements, complexity of the implementing companies processes, and complexity of the implementing companies business structure. However, based on our experience with NetSuite implementations most fall in the $25,000 - $100,000 range. To learn more about NetSuite Implementation pricing, check out our guide Here.
A NetSuite implementation Consultant can do as much or as little as the user requires. From high level architecture and planning to detailed configuration. We can also help users with training, custom development, integrations, and support.
NetSuite is mostly implemented by NetSuite expert consultants. On some occasions it can be implemented by the users and on others it can be implemented by NetSuite itself. However, it is mostly recommended to have NetSuite implemented by a team of experts that have a proven track record of success with the platform.
Most implementations take somewhere between 3 and 6 months. However, just like with the cost of the implementation, the time it takes also depends on the complexity of the implementation scope.
The ease of implementing NetSuite largely depends on the complexity of the business processes it is intended to support. NetSuite offers a wide range of features and customization options, which can make implementation challenging for businesses with highly specialized or complex processes. However, for businesses with more standard processes, NetSuite's out-of-the-box features and intuitive interface can make implementation relatively straightforward. Working with a qualified NetSuite implementation partner can help ensure a smooth and successful implementation.
