Netsuite SuiteFlow Benefits

NetSuite SuiteFlow is a graphical workflow management software that for the first time gives users of cloud suits the ability to easily automate, streamline and develop complex business processes with ground-breaking simplicity and friendly user interface.

This tool allows users to customize a workflow without the use of script. As it uses a graphical interface, tasks are simplified and easy to set-up. Below are discussed several benefits of using the SuiteFlow cloud management tool.

In the first place, you do not have to be a programmer to understand this product. All you need is a good grasp of the rules and logic of your very own business procedures. That’s the reason why NetSuite SuiteFlow has a diverse audience and typically includes a number of business and operational professionals, not just computer programmers. Mapping the requirements and rules of your own business processes is what SuiteFlow is all about. For example, if you understand the approval process that your shopping orders need to follow, then you can learn how to use the SuiteFlow’s visual interface to create the actual NetSuite logic to automate your business in a new, faster way.

SuiteFlow is a very flexible platform. The platform is embodied in a beautiful graphical tool that allows for custom drag-and-drop customization for ERP. This made thousands of businesses have capitalized on the flexibility of NetSuite’s customization capabilities for years. That said, users can create, delete and edit custom workflows to help and support the best way they and businesses need to work in real time – whether the goal is to create a rule-based lead nurturing processes, implement a more efficient automated collections process or maybe overhaul receivables management.

SuiteFlow is very flexible as it is built on open foundation – SuiteScript. This means that you can use SuiteScript and combine it with SuiteFlow by creating custom actions or call external web services and use these services as needed within certain workflows. However, it is important to note that even though SuiteScript is based on JavaScript, you do not have to be a JavaScript wizard or experienced Web developer to take advantage of SuiteScript.

Additionally, you can use SuiteFlow to quickly assemble rules-based workflows to streamline business processes such as sales discounting, nurturing, collections management and more. Even more, you can easily specify the triggering events that initiate a certain workflow, such as when records are created, viewed or edited – or just schedule workflows to run automatically.

In addition to providing businesses with shorter time-to-value and greater utilization of data and resources, SuiteFlow also helps independent software vendors and developers get to market easier and faster with their “handmade” vertical apps and scripts built on the SuiteCloud platform. With SuiteFlow platform, developers will be able to apply the same advantage to business processes for specific apps, greatly reducing time development costs.Developers already appreciate the useful point-and-click super quick prototyping available with NetSuite’s form and user interface customization tools.

Finally, NetSuite SuiteFlow smashes one of the final myths regarding software as a service (SaaS) business applications – that they force firms to alter their typical business processes to accommodate hard-coded workflows. With NetSuite SuiteFlow users are able to quickly point and click to create, alter or update custom workflows.
