1. Industry Leading Financial Management

In a previous piece, we wrote about the ways wholesalers could compete against Direct-To-Consumer (D2C) businesses. We highlighted the importance of building a strong E-Commerce experience, Omnichannel selling, and proper Inventory Management.

How To Maximize Your ERP Investment


Whether you’re currently using NetSuite or looking for ERP options, getting the most out of your money is crucial.

Here are a few ways you can maximize your ERP solution to get the most out of your investment.

Do More With Dashboards

A complete picture of the Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) you and your teams have built within the ERP platform can be found on your NetSuite dashboard, which is actually the home page itself. 

In addition to providing a basic picture of your role inside the company, it provides a glimpse of trends, reports you're working on and their status.

NetSuite Dashboards enable users to easily access the data they use and need most, making them one of the most crucial components of the Oracle NetSuite ERP platform.

Due to their easy-to-view metrics and objectives, these dashboards, when configured properly, may be tailored for each team or organizational member, enabling them to work productively and sustain motivation. 

You can explore this guide which outlines the many components of the dashboard and explains how to use and publish them for best practices within your company.

Business Intelligence For Oracle NetSuite

Although NetSuite is the perfect tool for data capture, what good is collecting that data without an efficient way of reporting on it?

To make the most of your NetSuite instance, we at GURUS recommend using business intelligence (BI).

In our experience, we've seen how crucial it is for companies to visualize all of their NetSuite ERP data as well as the fact that these companies had sophisticated external reporting systems.

We created Business Intelligence for NetSuite, Powered by GURUS, because, at the time, there weren't any solutions available that made it possible to cost-effectively connect your external data with NetSuite.

When you import data into NetSuite using business intelligence, it will display and update immediately via an embedded dashboard within your NetSuite account.
