NetSuite benefits: A unified platform for consumer products
True multitenant cloud platform: Your data is safely managed, and you will never have to worry about system uptime or upgrades again. An internet connection and device with a browser are your only infrastructure requirements.
Global operations: Unify global operations into a single platform, giving you the ability to efficiently manage the entire supply chain, international entities, and currencies and local compliance requirements.
Omnichannel: With NetSuite, you can easily manage all sales channels—such as back-office, e-commerce, mobile apps, retail and EDI—within a single, unified platform; providing unmatched power in serving customers no matter where and how they buy.
Sales channels: Companies are faced with unique challenges of selling direct to customers, wholesale and distributions, with each channel presenting its own set of unique requirements, pricing, billing, back-office support and supply chain needs.
Order management: Streamline operations to ensure orders are delivered to customers on time, efficiently and accurately; manage order processing and fulfillment, warehouse operations and automation "WMS," customer returns and 3PL integrations within a single system.
Inventory visibility: Leverage powerful inventory management functionality that provides users with a detailed visibility of inventory that is on hand, in transit, planned and available. Appropriate visibility can be given to users across departments, cutting down on error-prone manual communication, inventory shortages and customer delays.
