Enabling Users to Work Remotely with NetSuite

By - March 16, 2020

NetSuite is a cloud-based ERP, users are enabled to work from home without sacrificing productivity, which is especially critical as we face the Global Pandemic of the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19). If you are currently using NetSuite or considering moving to a cloud ERP, there are several considerations and ways to leverage NetSuite to facilitate users to work effectively while working remotely.

Uninterrupted accounting and business processes

  • If laptops are not available to all users at your organization, simply by being able to access NetSuite via a web browser can enable your workforce to use home laptops/desktop
  • Enable users to access NetSuite from a Mobile Device if at home computer access is not possible, or your team is traveling without computer access
  • Leverage dashboard reminders to notify users when to take action, or review records necessary to complete job functions and keep your accounting processes running
  • An example can be approval of sales orders, invoices, or bills

Understand your business trends quickly, so you are able to act proactively versus reactively

  • Run real-time reporting, as transactions are posted to see your businesses performance
  • Leverage dashboard KPI’s to alert teams of trends that may be impacting business
  • An example can be Sales or AR Aging Trends

Assign tasks that are not a part of standard business workflows

  • Leverage Activities to communicate and assign tasks in NetSuite, providing due dates and priorities
  • An example of this could be for assigning a Collections team member to follow up with a customer regarding open AR, or assigning period close tasks

Get answers about client communication without walking to your team members desk

  • Leverage NetSuite’s Communication tab on records to see your team and your client’s communication, without having to follow up directly with team members
