One of the beauties of the SaaS model is that the software is kept up to date with the latest features, functions and best practices. Cloud ERP providers roll out updates on a regular basis (as often as monthly, in Oracle’s case).
This means that the latest technologies become available to subscribers on a regular basis. However, not all cloud software systems are made the same and finding the right one can be difficult. That’s where we come in.
We can help you navigate what to keep in mind as you choose your system:
Ongoing support – Your cloud ERP solution provider should provide ongoing support, regardless of where you are in the integration process. You should always feel comfortable reaching out to your provider.
Supply chain visibility – You should get a complete set of inventory management, manufacturing, and purchasing features to help streamline your supply chain. On top of this, you should also have a real-time view of key suppliers, inventory and ordering indicators.
Quote-to-quote process – Your platform’s order and billing management module should integrate with your sales, finance, and fulfilment operations to eliminate any bottlenecks. This streamlines the entire order and sales process, meaning you can get more done in less time.
We can help you with the migration process:
A cloud partner can provide templates for imports to make migration a whole lot easier. Data imports don’t have to be a one-time thing either, if you have data that needs updating regularly, this can be achieved using the same methods.
Step 1: Extraction, Consolidation and Cleansing – Solutions partners will provide the customer with CSV templates early in the implementation phase for each data type to be migrated and will advise the customer on best practices for data consolidation.
Step 2: Test Loads into NetSuite – You’ll need to ensure data accuracy and integrity by performing a test load for each record type using sample records (sample typically comprise of 10% of expected production data volume or 300 records, whichever is less).
Step 3: Validate data migration sources – As previously mentioned, garbage in, garbage out. You need to ensure that only the data you need goes into your cloud system. That’s why you should go through each data point to ensure it is required and makes sense to import.
