The Complete NetSuite Amazon Integration Guide

The main reason for NetSuite Amazon integration is to enable independent software vendors, customers, and developers to create new software apps, which uses Amazon Web Services (AWS) to leverage NetSuite’s highly integrated cloud-enterprise resource planning suite. With a development platform of NetSuite’s SuiteCloud, SuiteStorage connector is built to integrate Amazon and NetSuite. This offers NetSuite customers the user interface created for retrieving and storing files from Amazon S3. This means that data intensive customers should be able to see a performance increase while maintaining the database integrity in the cloud.

Basically, integrating the Amazon and NetSuite clouds shows how these companies are committed to helping their customers minimize their IT infrastructure responsibilities and costs. This is actually a good example of how NetSuite customers would gain from an increasing and additional number of efficiencies, especially in their enterprise IT requirements.

An Overview of Amazon S3 Connector

ERP Guru designed a connector, which takes files from the file cabinet available in NetSuite and uploads them to EC2 of Amazon, specifically for storage on cloud of Amazon S3. The stored files are easily accessed through the NetSuite’s customer center as well as on other related transactions.

Challenges: When customers process CAD files, they can be very huge if they are not compressed. Sometimes, they receive over ten files at once, and this can quickly exceed their individual NetSuite storage limits. Usually the client needs big storage space, which is currently not available in NetSuite’s File Cabinet. Despite the fact that Amazon S3 cloud provides its users with unlimited storage space, it is not capable of processing large files.

Solutions: For the provision of the missing link, this ERP Guru created Amazon S3 connector to integrate Amazon to NetSuite so that EC2 servers of Amazon are capable of performing third party processing. The final result is that clients dealing with so many CAD files can have access to the unlimited storage while ensuring the use of NetSuite. The storage is highly secure for storing most important business files. Lastly, a feature known as version tracking which currently not offered by NetSuite is enabled.

Conclusively, just like any other ERP and/or CRM solutions, this integration makes expanding your online business onto the Amazon Web-store platforms and the Selling on Amazon (SOA) a very easy and simple process through the NetSuite interface. This great, complete solution offers order & fulfillment processing, inventory & product management and settlement & reconciliation. It is also fully connected to Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA).

In addition, CloudConnectTM Amazon is also deployed automatically into the user’s NetSuite account. Netsuite Amazon integration is a SuiteScript-based integration that uses the newest Amazon Marketplace Web-Service API’s.
