Automate processes for receiving and processing orders

What is NetSuite Sales Order Management?

NetSuite sales order management automates the order-to-cash process, including receiving, approving, scheduling, fulfilling, tracking and collecting payment for orders. Users can define rules for how the business receives, fulfills and delivers orders to automate certain daily tasks and maximize efficiency. Simplifying order processing eliminates manual bottlenecks and prevents errors so orders can be fulfilled quickly and accurately, which supports timely invoicing and payments.

NetSuite Sales Order Management Features

NetSuite sales order management gives businesses the tools they need to proactively manage order-to-cash processes, eliminating manual work, increasing profitability and ensuring customer satisfaction.

Customizable Approval Workflows

NetSuite’s SuiteFlow engine is a user-friendly workflow design and monitoring tool that allows you to define approval workflows through a drag-and-drop interface. The workflow tool can interact with all of the other transactions, records and forms in NetSuite, allowing you to easily enforce company approval policies and handle complex, multi-tiered approval processes.

Configurable Order Processes

NetSuite can be easily configured to operate in companies of all types and sizes. For larger companies where multiple people are involved in processing and fulfilling orders, those duties are easily segregated. However, smaller companies may have the same person putting together quotes, entering orders, processing shipping paperwork and sending invoices. NetSuite sales order management can easily handle this, as administrators can simply define user permissions and enable the employee to perform the next logical step with the click of a button.

Grid Order Management

NetSuite Grid Order Management allows users to enter and print orders in grid format for assembly and inventory items. Users can create custom grid print templates and assign them to select transactions. As the grid order is created, relevant item information such as the name, location, quantity available and price is easily accessible. This grid format saves order entry time, increases the accuracy of orders and leads to faster sales and fulfillment.

Gross Profit Analysis

NetSuite's real-time gross profit analysis enables businesses to see estimated gross profitability percentage on orders as they are entered. With the ability to choose from multiple costing methods as items are entered — including last receipt, average, standard and defined — orders can be analyzed by line item to ensure they meet profitability standards.
