Inventory Management and Order Fulfillment

Improve Inventory Profitability and Streamline Shipping Processes

NetSuite saves manufacturers countless hours of work associated with data entry, order management, inventory management and demand fulfillment. Because NetSuite integrates all of these functions into a single cloud computing application, you'll be able to convert forecasts to orders, orders to shipments and shipments to revenue with unprecedented efficiency.

Additionally, NetSuite enhances warehouse order fulfillment, packing and shipping processes. NetSuite's integration with UPS, FedEx®, and USPS allows you to transmit your order information directly to the shippers and instantly receive back the rate, tracking number and address verification—and print shipping labels.

You can improve your inventory profitability by associating item costs with related expenses, calculating complete landed costs and factoring in expenses such as shipping or duty.
