3. Does a company need add-on modules with a NetSuite package?
The need for NetSuite add-on modules varies based on the company's unique processes, goals, and requirements. NetSuite modules are built to improve and expand upon the capabilities offered by the core NetSuite package. Evaluating the company's ongoing operations, future expansion strategies, and any existing obstacles is essential.
4. What is the difference between SuiteApps and add-on modules?
Modules are a core part of the NetSuite platform and need to be licensed to enable the functionality. SuiteApps on the other hand are unique add-on applications that were created to solve a unique issue in the system. SuiteApps must be installed separately and are built by NetSuite, third party developers and partners in the NetSuite ecosystem.
NetSuite has an incredible community of 3rd party developers, internal developers, and individuals capable of creating custom apps to fill a unique business need. The long list of SuiteApps can be found in the SuiteApp Marketplace. Both SuiteApps and add-on modules share the common purpose of enhancing and customizing NetSuite further to better align with a company’s processes and workflows.
5. Can you add or remove NetSuite modules?
Modules can be added to your NetSuite system at any time to fit the growing and changing needs of your business. It’s important to note that you can only remove them when your contract is up for renewal. During the contract period, you will be obligated to pay for these modules, so make sure to implement the ones you know you need most.
6. How are NetSuite users involved with NetSuite modules?
Every NetSuite user is assigned a role inside the system that determines their access and permissions to the modules that are relevant to their responsibilities. NetSuite’s role-based system ensures that businesses have the exact tools and functionalities to reach their goals and responsibilities.
