NetSuite Community Exchange

Essential supplies and services are in high demand; however, these products face quick stockouts and end up reaching a small net of potential customers. That’s why NetSuite launched the NetSuite Community Exchange, which is an essential-services marketplace for NetSuite users. Businesses have decided to offer up their goods and services in high demand, such as sanitary products, masks, gloves, etc. With over 21,000 customers and 500 partners with access to this platform, users have access to the supplies that are critical to helping them reopen safely. 

Cloud Data for an Easy Work-From-Home Transition

NetSuite users are already familiar with the cloud-based advantage their solution brings them. Because of stay-at-home mandates, some businesses must adapt to a work from home lifestyle. Luckily, thanks to the cloud platform, NetSuite can transition as quickly as opening up a laptop. Users gain access to the same information they would otherwise have or could possibly need. Plus, with NetSuite’s data security, you can rest assured knowing your data is safe and secure on the cloud.

Better Plan, Budget, and Forecast

Building an air-tight budget requires open communication between departments and a solid overview of all finances and market trends. Thankfully, NetSuite’s 2020.2 Release 2 has rolled out new features that help businesses better plan, budget, and forecast more accurately. NetSuite gives your team the financial freedom they need to centralize data for a complete look into financial and operational data and streamlined processes to predict the most accurate and accomplishable goals. 

Curbside Pickup

For retail shops that have the option of catering directly to their customers, curbside pickup is crucial for success. Curbside pickup offers customers the delight of still supporting a store with convenience and safety. With SuiteCommerce’s intuitive features, you can run an integrated website that allows your customers to check out online and pick up at curbside. This not only boosts more sales but also offers your customers more buying options but optimizes their overall experience.
