New Cloud Coder Products & Partnering with JCurve

It's been a busy few weeks since partnering with JCurve, one of Australia and New Zealand’s largest solution providers of NetSuite, to deliver improved Warehouse Management capabilities. With this partnership we have introduced the Honeywell Forge powered Warehouse Management System (WMS) for NetSuite. This is a leading Warehouse Management System and has been built using the Honeywell Forge platform to empower businesses running their Warehouse operations on a daily basis. This WMS extends to Purchasing and Receiving, Bin Put-aways, Pick / Pack and shipping and barcoding. Our partnership with JCurve will enable JCS NetSuite and “ERP” customers to process their orders more efficiently.

Can Business Improve Warehouse Operations with Honeywell Forge?

As NetSuite SuiteScript developers we are always looking for ways to empower our clients to take control, work smarter and effectively manage their businesses. Often there is a major disconnect in managing the sales processes and warehouse operations as more businesses move into online sales. It was due to this recognised need that we began developing with Honeywell Forge, to integrate within the NetSuite platform and created a Warehouse Management System for businesses to manage their warehouse systems more efficiently. With completion of this project, we were recently approached by Online eCommerce store Hot Toner to improve their warehouse operations and help them manage their sales processes.

How Does the eCommerce Website Lifecycle Impact on Your Needs With NetSuite?

The increase of e-commerce has redesigned the manner in which people around the globe buy and sell goods. As new online channels come into use, the traditional online distribution model for brands relying on eCommerce continues to be disrupted. In fact, the complete eCommerce Website Lifecycle is constantly and rapidly changing. It is this constant disruption that we here at Cloud Coders look at when approached to develop any integration between NetSuite and an eCommerce website already in use. In fact, we have found there are 6 key stages that begin with the investigation of the marketplace and business use for the website, through to the redesign and decommissioning of the website to adjust for changes as business and consumer needs change.

Investigate

This initial stage should cover who your market is, what their requirements are, and what CMS will work best for your business. Things to consider are what type of content you want to use now and in the future, what is currently successful in the same market space that you're operating in, and what your key points of difference are within the business model. One point to keep in mind is how will you communicate this to your audience?

Establishing a Value on Website Integration with NetSuite for Product or Manufacturing Based Websites.

  Websites today have developed so dramatically, and one question we were asked recently was, "How to get value from your website when the order volume is unknown but the information on it needs to be relevant and timely? As NetSuite SuiteScript developers we looked at the question of what is the value of a website integration with NetSuite for information on products. So how do we empower our clients to take control and effectively manage their businesses? We recently completed a Website Integration With NetSuite For CKC Civil Construction Equipment. One of the core issues was how to get value from their website when their order volumes were unknown yet the information on the site needed to be relevant and timely.

Correct Aging of Debtors Is Essential For End-of-Month Trading Terms in NetSuite

NetSuite is a highly flexible ERP and CRM system, however in some cases - such as trading terms - it just isn't able to cover all bases. Australian and European customers are accustomed to end-of-month terms, with many Australian businesses demanding 30 days EOM as a matter of course. When using End of Month Trading Terms, it is important that the Due Date of an Invoice is always calculated correctly.

Making the Most of Automatic Billing with NetSuite

Let face it, we all go into Business to make money, yet one of the biggest time processes for most businesses still seem to be around Billing and collecting payments from clients. With the rapid growth of cloud computing, mobile devices and the internet, Businesses are scrambling to shift from a transaction-centric relationship with their customer to one of a relationship that needs to be built and nurtured. Additionally, companies are facing pressures to launch, build and grow recurring revenue streams as a means to stay relevant in the marketplace. Finance teams can quickly become overwhelmed with multiple revenue streams, one-off and recurring revenue, customised payment terms and project-based billing. The result is often billing errors, wasted effort, revenue recognition issues and even loss of customers.

Customising NetSuites Email Segmentation to Multiple Stakeholders

Netsuites Email SegmentationWe like to believe that Netsuite's built in email functionality is excellent, allowing you to use email templates and transactions to the main email address on the customer record. However, for a lot of businesses with different departments, this is simply not enough. What we have found is a lot of our customers require their NetSuite emails to be sent to an individual group of people Ie.: the accounts department for invoices, Shipping notifications to the Warehouse department etc.

Responsive Websites with Netsuites Payment Integration and Automatic Membership Renewals are Essential for Member Based Associations

  Responsive Websites on designing websitesIn keeping with our focus on empowering our clients to take control and manage their businesses easily and effectively, we recently completed an integration for The Master Electricians Association. As a dynamic and modern trade association, the Master Electricians Association is recognised by industry, government and the community as the electrical industry’s leading business partner and needed a responsive integration that reflected this.

I was at the SuiteWorld Ask and Expert questions session and someone wanted to now how to find out about what permissions grant what function in Netsuite. I knew I had a spreadsheet with all the functions on it, but had a little trouble tracking it down.
