How Do You Configure The Complexity of Managing Product Variations?

  oz contacts managing product variationsAs any business that sells product knows, selling the product is one of the easier parts of the product management process. Factor in a wide range of product variations and NetSuite integration requires a bit more thinking outside the box for managing product variations. This was the case when we were approached by Oz Contacts an online eCommerce business who sell a wide range of contact lenses based on the customers' actual optometrist prescription. With contact lenses being sourced from within Australia, Oz Contacts are able to supply a wider range from their website. While products with option choices can be easily managed with Netsuite's Matrix Item type, what happens when the combinations go into the thousands as with Contact Lenses?

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.
