The most important advantages of NetSuite for your manufacturing company

Product data management

Everything you need to define, manage and maintain your products during all processes is available in NetSuite. Moreover, you can streamline your production environment by automatically creating work orders in make-to-order environments. This simplifies the processing of multi-level work orders, by allowing a multi-level assembly to be performed with a single work order.

Financial management

By use of dashboards, real-time information is displayed on e.g. receivables, orders and accounts payable. Creating multiple reports is also no problem. NetSuite not only supports a large number of general ledger accounts, but the invoicing is also done automatically. And that includes a calculation of sales tax, financing costs or discount conditions.

Planning and schedule management

As you may know, planning is often one of the most complex functions within a production process. It is a complex challenge to make a good planning and at the same time maintain the user-friendliness of that planning. Using NetSuite’s planning solution you will find the right balance to create a realistic schedule with minimal effort.

Production control

NetSuite provides insight and ordering advice with which you can ensure that the items in your assortment are present in the right quantity at the right time. Because of course you want the most important items to be available at the right time, so that your wholesaler can offer the service and speed that customers expect. Because having up-to-date insight into your customers and their order history gives you the opportunity to optimally respond to the needs of customers.


Stock levels are automatically monitored and controlled. If necessary, stock alerts are sent out and stocks are rearranged. Demand planning forecasts are established based on historical data, sales forecasts, average trends and seasonal fluctuations. NetSuite provides real-time, detailed insight into key expenditures, inventory and supply chain.

Supply chain management

Developing plans in CAD applications is possible by integrating various CAD systems with NetSuite. Also Bill Of Material (BOM) support. Changes are automatically implemented in the BOM and purchase orders. Because NetSuite supports inventory methods such as LIFO and FIFO, there is more flexibility in determining costs. Finally, personnel planning can also be done within NetSuite.
