NetSuite Manufacturing Product Features


Order Management

Optimize inventory on hand, reduce shipping costs and improve the customer experience by automating key processes and access to real-time information.

As customer expectations rise and supply chains become more complex, it is both more critical and more difficult than ever to deliver the perfect order. NetSuite Intelligent Order Management automates your order promising, allocation, orchestration and execution processes. Efficiently fulfill orders based on global inventory availability and business rules.

Deliver the perfect order every time.

Scale up your business while better managing labor costs. NetSuite allows you to automate fulfillment processes, eliminating the need for duplicative order entries that take away from other valuable activities.

Manage all of your orders in a single system with integrated order-to-cash processes. Combine this with intelligent workflows for approval routing, pricing and discounting to offer customers a consistent experience.

Planning and Scheduling

Automatically balance supply and demand, ensuring you have the right inventory in the right place at the right time.

Scheduling is one of the most complex functions within manufacturing. NetSuite delivers a real-time scheduling engine that is flexible, yet intuitive, with finite and infinite capacity scheduling.

View all upcoming work orders – when you want, how you want.

With either a traditional calendar view or a Gantt chart, NetSuite displays upcoming production with intuitive drag-and-drop tools. Once everything is scheduled, get a real-time view of production and even identify potential problem areas.

Supply Chain

Control and monitor your outsourced manufacturing processes like they’re your own.

Where a product is manufactured, and who it’s manufactured by, should not be a barrier to growth. NetSuite delivers a global view of inventory, regardless of where it is in production, allowing companies to manage outsourced production as if they were doing the manufacturing.

NetSuite provides real-time inventory visibility, vendor location management and full distribution requirement planning (DRP) capabilities for multi-location planning.

Procurement

Manage your suppliers and purchasing processes with the visibility to ensure you get the products when you need them, at the best price.

NetSuite was built to support the needs of product-based businesses from the start. Today, it offers a variety of native features like requests for quote, blanket purchase orders and purchase contracts to help ensure that you have the right materials or items available, at the right time, in the right place.

Make the procure-to-pay process more efficient with smarter spending.

NetSuite helps companies improve the procurement process with tools that better monitor spending, simplify requests for goods and services, and deliver real-time visibility throughout your operations.

Shop Floor Control

Make improvements across the floor.

Many manufacturers spend significant time and effort trying to perfect future plans with planning and scheduling applications. Recording when, where, what, why and how your products are currently being manufactured is just as critical. In fact, it’s a key element to a more accurate schedule. NetSuite makes it easy to quickly and accurately gather information from the manufacturing process.

Get real-time updates from the shop floor via NetSuite's interactive tablet application.

The tablet application can be deployed through any tablet’s browser and can accurately record exactly what’s happening during each step of the manufacturing process. The application provides an interactive work queue showing all current and future operations scheduled through the current work center. The user-friendly layout is specifically designed to be used in harsh manufacturing environments and can even be operated while wearing gloves.

Quality Management

Designing and manufacturing a high-quality product doesn't happen by accident

NetSuite helps you deliver the highest quality in your products with minimal overhead. Define inspection plans, pass/fail criteria, collect results and monitor all results as they’re recorded.

Improve quality while reducing costs

NetSuite is specifically designed to help manufacturers of all sizes reduce operating costs, increase revenue and better manage their business and supply chains. Define and maintain your inspection plans, collect in-process inspection results and report on non-conformance.

CRM and Marketing

Manage the Complete Customer Lifecycle

Today’s successful companies adapt to their customers’ needs. Where possible, they have replaced manual processes with automated ones to increase efficiency and responsiveness.

NetSuite customer relationship management (CRM) delivers powerful capabilities all in a single cloud solution, including sales force automation, marketing automation and customer service and support management. NetSuite CRM also includes powerful sales performance management, order management and partner management seamlessly integrated with your NetSuite ERP and ecommerce systems. A complete picture of sales helps you plan your shop floor operations and improve your forecasting.
