NetSuite DIY Options

Many businesses know that they could benefit from an ERP (enterprise resource planning) and / or CRM (customer relationship management) system but may believe that business management software is out of their range financially.  If you have researched options for ERP/CRM systems for your organization and feel like a traditional consultant managed implementation is more than you can afford, The Vested Group has the perfect solution for you.   

While The Vested Group does offer a full range of NetSuite consulting and implementation services from pre-implementation Phase Zero to post production support and everything in between, we also offer a more cost conscious alternative to hiring a consulting firm to set up your NetSuite system: SIMPLEmentation.

In many circumstances, our SIMPLEmentation option can be a great choice for companies that are looking to cut costs without sacrificing system functionality.  In addition to reducing costs, a self-implementation can often save time and have the added benefit of keeping organizational knowledge in house.

Is SIMPLEmentation Right for My Organization?

If you are thinking of self-implementing NetSuite, you are probably wondering if this is a project your organization can handle.  Have no fear, you will be surprised to learn just how simple a self-implementation with NetSuite is.

NetSuite is designed with the small to medium sized business in mind and that includes everything from set up to day-to-day business operations.  Essentially all you need to ensure a successful self-implementation of NetSuite is a person in your organization who is moderately comfortable with basic technology and a reasonable commitment of time to the implementation process.

If you are still unsure if your organization has the sufficient resources to complete a self-implementation of NetSuite, a member of The Vested Group’s consulting team would be happy to explore this with you and give a professional opinion as to your readiness.

How Does a Self-Implementation Work?

Step 1 – Set Up a Demo Whether you’ve already chosen NetSuite as your business management system or if you are still trying to make your final decision, you can set up a demo of NetSuite by contacting The Vested Group. This is a great way to get a feel for how NetSuite works and gives you an opportunity to ask us all of your questions about NetSuite functionality.

Step 2 – Purchase a NetSuite License If you decide to move forward with NetSuite and the Self-Implementation option, you can purchase your NetSuite license with The Vested Group.  We will assist you with the contracting process and be able to answer any questions you may have along the way.

Step 3 – Schedule a Kick-Off Meeting and Review Documentation Your next step is to schedule a kick-off meeting with The Vested Group to review the process and discuss your self-implementation overview. As part of our self-implementation service, The Vested Group will provide you with a useful document that will guide you through the implementation process including pre-implementation tasks, implementation steps, and tools and resources for getting help when you need it.

Step 4 – Kick Off Your Implementation The last step in your self-implementation is to get started.  Using our self-implementation document as a guide, you can begin your implementation of NetSuite following our step-by-step instructions.
