Tax and regulatory compliance is subsidiary specific. Generally, NetSuite’s strong points lie in its financial capabilities. For instance, its accounting processes make these everyday operations that much smoother:

NetSuite is a comprehensive business suite which offers all the applications you need to run your business right at your fingertips. You can run your business on your computer anywhere an internet is available (cloud-based) or just turn on your mobile phone if you are on the road all the time (mobile-enabled).

NetSuite provides cloud financials, CRM, ecommerce, HCM and professional services automation management for all organizations sized from small/medium companies to large global organizations.

NetSuite OneWorld scales with global businesses by providing complete multi-subsidiary/multi-currency management and support for local accounting regulations (multi-book accounting).

Companies in the traditional world usually have lots of different software for different processes, and these software usually don’t talk to each other—not to mention the manpower the company needs to maintain the different software, but the majority of your day may be spent on trying to look into different systems for different information, or trying to figure out which system has the most accurate and/or up-to-date data. In the modern world, NetSuite offers you built-in flexibility which lets you do it all, quickly and easily in one system. The following major business processes are already included in the basic package, you can choose to turn them on at any time and get free upgrade seamlessly.

  • Lead to customer
  • Order to cash
  • Procure to pay
  • Inventory management
  • Project and resource management
  • Payroll management
  • Multi-subsidiary multi-currency management
  • Currency revaluation
  • Bank reconciliation and easy month end closing
  • Real-time e-commerce syncup

NetSuite simplifies the chart of accounts by segmenting the financial reports through subsidiaries, departments, classes, and locations, plus offers a customization ability that its competitors do not: it is a highly customizable ERP system with a very open API.

NetSuite vs. Intacct

Intacct is customizable and is designed to support growing businesses. They provide more advanced functionality than small business accounting systems, like QuickBooks, and are ideal for businesses who require more in-depth organizational structures, have international locations, and need multi-faceted reporting. If Intacct is good enough, then why switch to NetSuite?

Where NetSuite Does Better

  • Easy and short implementation cycle
  • Easy to customize and user-friendly interface
  • Future-planned system platform
  • Seamless integration between financial management with order management, inventory, CRM and ecommerce functions
  • Real time KPIs and dashboard analysis with customizable reports

The Main Difference

The main difference is that NetSuite is a Full ERP and contains all the functionalities needed in a standard business like sales, customer relationships, enterprise resource planning, accounting, inventory, etc; whereas Intacct focuses solely/mainly on the financial and accounting aspects of a cloud accounting system.

ERP System

NetSuite vs. Microsoft Dynamics GP

Dynamics GP is normally used by smaller and midsized businesses; it has mid-class accounting features and has to be integrated in all of your CRM and marketing tools. Dynamics GP can also be cheaper than NetSuite, but people always say you get what you paid for. If Microsoft Dynamics GP has more features than Intacct and is cheaper than NetSuite, then why should you consider NetSuite?

Where NetSuite Does Better

  • General Ledger
  • Accounts Receivable
  • Accounts Payable
  • Inventory Management
  • Consolidation
  • Reporting & Analytics
  • Platform
  • Integration

The Main Difference

The main difference is that NetSuite is a full ERP and contains all the functionalities needed in a standard business like sales, customer relationships, enterprise resource planning, accounting, inventory, etc; whereas Dynamics GP focuses solely/mainly on the financial and accounting aspects of an accounting system, so it is much more suitable for small businesses.

Another big difference is that NetSuite is cloud based and Dynamics GP is on premise. You would need your own infrastructure to support Dynamics GP.

NetSuite vs. Quickbooks

Quickbooks is suitable for very small businesses or startup companies. It accommodates up to five users and is great for simplifying accounting. Essentially, it offers all the basic functionalities, such as custom-created invoices, printing cheques, automated online banking, smartphone compatibility, and exporting data to Excel, QuickBooks Online Payroll, and Intuit GoPayment software. It also conveniently syncs data to a dashboard so you could view reports in real-time.

Where NetSuite Does Better

  • General Ledger
  • Accounts Receivable
  • Accounts Payable
  • Inventory Management
  • Consolidation
  • Reporting & Analytics
  • Platform
  • Integration

The Main Difference

While Quickbooks is much cheaper than NetSuite, it’s not scalable if business grows and does not support multiple currencies. It also includes a lot less features and may require integration with other systems like customer relationships, ecommerce, etc.
