NetSuite has a wide variety of offerings.

NetSuite is not just an accounting software. The true cloud product offers NetSuite CRM, which has traditional CRM capabilities such as SFA, customer service management and marketing automation. Beyond that, NetSuite CRM delivers quotes, order management, commissions, sales forecasting, and integrated ecommerce capabilities. NetSuite also provides an ecommerce solution that unifies ecommerce with finance and accounting. SuiteSuccess for SuiteCommerce provides a full featured online store that can be launched in 30 days. With regards to human resources, NetSuite SuitePeople securely weaves people data throughout the Suite, giving business complete control over their core HR processes. NetSuite also offers financial planning services- NetSuite Planning and Budgeting Cloud Services. NetSuite PBCS enables quick adoption of world-class financial planning and budgeting across lines of businesses with flexible and customizable deployment options. Sage requires third party applications for CRM, Omnichannel eCommerce, Human Capital Management, and Financial Planning.

NetSuite Provides Seamless, Automatic Upgrades.

NetSuite provides seamless upgrades twice a year and all customers are on the latest version, while Sage customers must request their upgrades. These upgrades require PS support to ensure their customizations carry over to the new version and have been known to cost over $100k depending on the level of customization. Customers must also choose from a variety of hosting options including via a partner or managed by Sage and hosted on AWS. Only the single-tenant hosting options are market-ready.

NetSuite scales with your business.

NetSuite is THE trusted partner for growth. With NetSuite, you get a head start on improving your business with SuiteSuccess. Sage relies on the standard SaaS approach to building software. NetSuite delivers industry-specific best practices that minimize risks and accelerates ROI.  The weakness of Sage is that if you are a larger company, you may find  some of its capabilities a bit limited-it doesn't have quite the breadth of functionality that NetSuite has. 

Discover NetSuite-the World's Most Deployed Cloud Software

With all of the options available today as far as ERP systems, it's easy to get caught in analysis paralysis. What systems should you (or shouldn't you) choose? Before you decide on an ERP, there are a few things to keep in mind about the current ERP software industry.

The ERP software industry is in a stage of transition and disruption.

Why? Well, the software itself is transitioning. Many vendors are now doubling down on the cloud and moving their solutions from on-premise to the cloud and SaaS models. While this can be great, it also leads to a lot of inconsistency In how mature the products are and how far along these companies are in their digital transformations. That's why at Cloud Genius, we are exclusive providers of NetSuite. NetSuite was built natively in the cloud, before cloud and Saas were cool. Therefore, it is the most mature cloud solution on the market.

There have been a lot of shakeups lately in the leadership of major software companies.

This suggests that there is likely to be changes in direction and strategy.

Software Selection Process:


  • Perform an analysis to determine the top requirements of your business

    Therefore, you can rule out any ERP systems that aren’t flexible enough to provide your Must Haves.

  • Research what ERP systems your direct competitors are using to stay ahead of the curve.

    Make sure you ask your potential software vendor for customer references within your industry.

  • Remove the vendor bias and sales spin.

    Go in with skeptical eyes, and challenge some of the assumptions that software vendors might be bringing!

  • Make sure to select an ERP software that is easily adaptable and scalable for your growing business.

    You want technology that is geared towards the future, not a legacy system of the past.

  • Determine a budget plan.

    Find the right software that improves the efficiency of your business, increases visibility, and ultimately saves your business money in the long run.

  • Select the right implementation partner for best practices, ongoing implementation support, training, health checks, and more.

    Finding a team of experts is essential to your software selection process, otherwise you could have a dumpster fire on your hands-which will only cost your business more in the long run.
