How to Use Netsuite Fast and Hassle Free

Well, this isn’t going to be a tutorial, because the website itself will teach you the basics of how to use Netsuite services just fine, so there’s no need for that. Given they offer remote or on site installations of most of their frameworks, installation is easy, but can also be gotten around completely with the right package.

So, since that’s all covered, what does what I’m saying have to do with how to use Netsuite? Well, this is more about adoption advice than it is about operating or installing the services themselves.

So, Netsuite is a big set of stuff, in so many words. Where other services like Salesforce or even Zoho are more specifically brands of one basic niche (CRM in their cases), Netsuite offers a whole lot more stuff. They have CRM, financial and everything in between. These services of course integrate together for seamless data sharing quite easily.

This means that, if you’re going to adopt Netsuite, it means you’re looking at the possibility of having to commit to them for multiple services. This means that, for example, in stead of Salesforce for your CRM, you use Netsuite’s solution.

So, before you adopt Netsuite, consider that this may mean letting go of your attachment to things like that. Consider what all you’ll want to replace with Netsuite solutions, so that you don’t have problems in interoperability.

Now, beyond that, I want to talk more about how to handle training for Netsuite’s various solutions and functionality sets. Training is a pain, and this new technology rather makes it easier.

WalkMe is a tutorial creation program that throws the traditional ideas for training and tutorials out the window. Who needs video and lengthy tutorial articles, when you can just create a macro that goes into your SaaS forms. This macro can do some really cool things, like control web form fields and elements, monitor their states and browser states, and use these conditions to make logical actions like redirecting focus, prompting users, correcting mistakes and monitoring rate of progress.

All the while, this held-hand training concept allows them to get real work done while they learn. That’s one of the more annoying things about training, where real work is not being done while training is being undertaken. WalkMe alleviates that.

So, if you’re just now considering adopting Netsuite, and you know the massive scale of training for this kind of project is going to be a burden, then you can check that concern off the list as handled, if you take on WalkMe to do the training.

WalkMe uses simple point and click interfacing to construct its logic, and its prompts and other visual elements. It’s easy to use, and no programming experience is requires. All you need is a sense of creativity, and a flair for logic.

When it comes to how to use Netsuite, the things to research are consequences, and a good way to handle the massive training involved. Now, I’ve pointed out consequences and consideration, and that can sound like I am warning away from using it. On the contrary, it’s a great SaaS brand.
