Harness NetSuite Expertise for Your Unique Business Needs

Applying deep industry expertise and the groundbreaking NetSuite One methodology, SuiteConsulting™ professional services help you implement and customise NetSuite for your unique requirements, providing a platform from which you can dramatically improve and grow your business—while driving costs out of your operations.

SuiteConsulting professionals have extensive expertise implementing NetSuite in many industries, including software, professional services, wholesale distribution, retail, financial services and manufacturing. Depending on your company size, budget and resources, SuiteConsulting has an implementation approach that’s right for you.

Shared Consulting

A Shared Consulting implementation is a cooperative, hands-on project, jointly managed by a NetSuite Consulting team and you. If you have specific requirements—such as the need for customised business processes, complex workflows, implementation of NetSuite advanced modules, integration with other applications, or data conversion issues—a Shared Consulting Implementation is right for you.


  • Implementation Roadmap: Expert NetSuite consultants get to know your business intimately and devise a tailored implementation roadmap.
  • Strategic Planning: Advisory meetings and strategy sessions ensure that your business processes are accurately reflected in the NetSuite solution.
  • Business Requirements Document (BRD): Each implementation begins with the development of a BRD that:
    • Ensures your requirements are fully understood prior to configuration
    • Outlines your key business processes, determines how closely they map to NetSuite functionality, and addresses any differences
    • Serves as a blueprint for ensuring that NetSuite is configured to meet your needs.

NetSuite One Methodology

NetSuite uses a unique, proven methodology based on best practices gleaned from vast experience in deploying NetSuite solutions to our customers. Called NetSuite One, this formal methodology is the very first designed specifically for the requirements of mid-market, on-demand implementations.

NetSuite One is composed of activities logically grouped into seven distinct stages, which support the long-term success of the NetSuite deployment, making it easier to provide management and control during the lifecycle of a project.

Not all projects, or professional service engagements, will always use all stages and complete all the activities outlined in this methodology. This staged approach has been designed to be flexible enough to allow specific requirements to be properly addressed and for methods and techniques to be selected and implemented as needed.

This methodology is used in the various implementation options offered by SuiteConsulting.

NetSuite Advisory Services

Based upon our experience with thousands of customer implementations, NetSuite Advisory Services offers best practice guidance and quality review checkpoints. We engage NetSuite personnel with extensive experience across many implementations. Using proven NetSuite best practice, we offer solutions to help overcome implementation challenges. Our quality checkpoint reviews deliver comprehensive assessments that identify problems early that otherwise may go uncovered until after go-live.

Quality Checkpoints

Quality Checkpoint reviews validate your analysis, design, development, and deployment decisions. They can help to identify design improvements early and avoid costly rework.

  • Analysis Review. Ensure business requirements are supported by NetSuite through standard functionality or customisation.
