NetSuite plays ball with the world of EDI, eCommerce, CRM
Thursday, December 22, 2016Lindsay Hampson
NetSuite has hit many home runs over the years (even back when the company was still named NetLedger). The great Billy Beane
(think MoneyBall), noted NetSuite’s ingenuity and joined their board of directors in the mid 2000’s. They have always been a company that based itself on quality, facts and instincts. And, they so brilliantly marketed and executed their plan that they were bought by Oracle in 2016
Another home run.
Given the glowing reports many give NetSuite, it is easy to see why businesses choose NetSuite ERP and NetSuite One World for their accounting and resource management systems.
A top player on the NetSuite team is NetSuite ERP. NetSuite OneWorld
is a another impressive ERP with robust features and proven benefits.

EDI Integration with NetSuite
Industries including retail, manufacturing, automotive, warehousing, food and beverage, sporting goods, to name a few, actually have a lot in common with baseball. One similarity is data. Another is acronyms. "EDI", or Electronic Data Interchange, is often a thorn in the side of these businesses. Selling products and services in Big Box, brick-and-mortar stores is lucrative. But, complying with order data field requirements is complex, ever changing and unique to each Big Box store.
Eliminate manual and duplicate entry. Employing bi-directional, automated integration between EDI trading partners and ERP systems provides some benefits that are "out of the park:"
- Improved speed of data exchange
- Improved data accuracy
- Liberated valuable resources, like time and money
- Improved operational efficiency
When vendor side trading, you need to source your products, submit your orders, and so on. NetSuite EDI integration
is the solution.
