We often find new options appearing in the Accounting Preferences that are not always documented in the release notes.   In the 2015.1 release we found a new preference for updating the transaction dates, could this finally be an attempt from Netsuite to fix the gross profit reporting when an order is paid for in one period and fulfilled in another, which is a really common issue we get asked about in the Wholesale and Distribution space. 

Classes and Departments are two very powerful inbuilt ways to report on business activity with-in NetSuite. Over the years I have seen some very poor implementations of these, so thought it would be beneficial to go over soem of the set-up steps, and how it all hangs together.  In the example below I'll go through the set-up stages using classes as an example.

One of the things that we have been very excited about, is the addition of eWay as a payment gateway in Netsuite. What got us excited, is that they have also just released an updated plugin for Magento that works perfectly in conjunction with our Magento/Netsuite Integration. You can find more information about the new eWAY Rapid 3.1 plugin here And why is that exciting?

I also enjoy finding the little things that NetSuite does in the upgrades that make life easier or more in line with industry standards. This one is a simple one but will make life a bit clearer for users in the Chart of Account. What they have added is the ability to create an account as s header account that cannot be posted too.

I often get asked, how to restrict the items in NetSuite that a user can see when they are entering a quote for an invoice. With NetSuite, there are two easy ways to do this, both with different results. The are using Classification restrictions, and using a saved search. In this post, we'll go over how to do it using a saved search. The business case I recently had was: All support reps to quote Customers only on certain service items.

The online webstore is normally split into two areas for development, the Browsing Experience, where you make it as easy for people as possible to find the products and make an informed decision on whether they re appropriate or not, and the Checkout Experience, which makes it as easy for the people to purchase the goods as possible. It's important that the two of these areas are tied together as easily as possible.

One of the features that everyone loves about NetSuite is that is highly customisable. As a trained or novice user, it is really easy to create new fields or records to store and display information on the forms. Additionally, customisation of the printed forms is relatively straight forward, as long as you don't want anything too fancy. Customisation that requires a bit more understanding of how databases work, are things like notifications, alerts and KPI's. Netsuite's Saved Searches, the a simplified query tool, allow you to extract a range of information from the system. It takes some time to learning what things are called, and how they affect reporting. So the question for someone starting out is "How much do you customise in Netsuite and what are some of the risks?"

One of the primary goals of a NetSuite system administrator would be to make it as easy as possible for the user to see the information they want without having to open up new windows, and potentially loosing track of what they are doing. In this article we will look at one of the most under-used, but most powerful features of Netsuite customisation, Sourcing and Filtering. This is an easy and user-customisable way to pull information from a related record onto the record you are looking at.

Setting up an online store and having an e-commerce system completely integrated with NetSuite is now easy.  No longer do you have to look for Netsuite specific consultants to change  a contact form to your website, add a news page or start a blog.  We...
