NetSuite for Advertising, Digital Marketing and Market Research Agencies

Maintain Your Creative Culture while Streamlining Agency Workflow and Project-based Accounting

Is your agency run on a hodgepodge of disparate management and billing systems?  Is your compensation shifting from retainers and mark-ups to fee- and performance-based revenue?  Do you need to streamline agency workflow and collect revenue faster to maximise agency profitability?

With NetSuite's cloud solutions, your advertising, digital marketing, or market research agency can improve its profitability without daily tasks such as client billing or resource management restricting creative juices. In fact, since many agency workflows are automated, business information and insights are more readily available, allowing your team to spend more time delighting their accounts.

Key Benefits

  • Improve your odds of winning profitable business: NetSuite solutions provide easy access to prospect and client information, including historical job information (including timelines, resources, utilisation rates, costs and profitability), allowing business development teams and account managers to accurately scope and cost out new jobs to ensure profitability based on past performance.
  • Easily manage traffic: Every job requires a different mix of staff to deliver successfully. Sometimes client or industry knowledge is critical.  Other times you will need to allocate resources based on bill rates, skill levels or specific language skills. With NetSuite resource management, you can instantly allocate your most appropriate resources (with the right skills) to the right jobs based on client needs.
  • Build virtual teams: With a disparate workforce (especially if you regularly use contractors or draft in employees from other offices), you need a solution that allows your team to work collaboratively. With NetSuite's cloud software, your team can instantly access the electronic job jacket. The team can then immediately collaborate with each other to share briefs, assets, work in progress, and whatever else is being worked on.  
  • Spend more time on client work and less on administration:With online, offline and mobile time and expense management, staff can enter timesheets and expenses whenever and wherever they have a few spare minutes. Automated approval routing allows managers to sign this off in seconds, and automated reminders eliminate the need to hound people for timesheets—ensuring employees can spend their time adding value to the business.
  • Increase profitability: Jobs can be billed monthly or as milestones are reached, lowering the time to invoice and improving cash flow. NetSuite agency solutions streamline manual processes such as rekeying information, and increases billing and invoice accuracy.
  • Get started quickly: Because NetSuite is a cloud solution, you can be up and running in less than half the time that it takes to implement traditional on-premise agency management software—and you won't need to worry about future upgrades as they are applied automatically. NetSuite is the last agency management software upgrade you will ever need.
