New Feature Highlights for Professional Services

New Feature Highlights for Professional Services

A host of new project manager notifications allow project managers to take action and resolve issues quickly. The new notifications include missing actual time, time to approve and expenses to approve. The system “speaks” to the project manager about activities, project status and potential issues on a project. Indicators are built into the system and you can make exceptions based on the condition of these indicators. There’s also a recommended action that hints on how to resolve project issues.
You can now calculate revenue budgets based on quantity and rates pulled in from rate cards, items and billing classes to achieve more accurate budgeting. The Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) now allows users to save a template to more easily create future WBS budgets for similar projects. This is a real time-saver for companies that manage similar projects for numerous clients.
With the Sequential Liability SuiteApp, professional services firms gain a unified AR, AP and Cash in Bank report that supports the monitoring and paying off of vendor liabilities after receiving payment from customers for related project transactions. This helps controllers manage cash and maintain good vendor relationships, while also collaborating in real-time with project managers on AR and AP balances related to client work.

New Feature highlights for Software Companies:

Improve customer satisfaction by giving customers a simple way to view and manage their subscriptions. MyAccount Portal is a secure, cost-effective way to give customers full visibility and access to their accounts, allowing companies to manage their account information, view order history, modify subscriptions and pay invoices.
SuiteAnalytics Workbook for Subscriptions provides powerful insights on recurring revenue for existing and renewing subscriptions. Use the workbook template for out-of-the-box analytics on recurring revenue, churn, upsell, downsell and much more.
Gain greater flexibility when creating subscriptions. Easily change billing parameters, such as billing schedule and billing terms, prior to activation of the subscription. This helps to reduce the number of subscriptions abandoned in the system, as the billing account isn’t required until activation and offers flexibility to swap billing accounts if required, rather than having to start again with a brand-new subscription and billing account.

New Feature highlights for Wholesale Distribution

New Feature highlights for Wholesale Distribution

NetSuite WMS now includes the ability to receive, transfer and pick goods inside a location without bins, including single order picking and multi-order picking at warehouses. Smaller warehouses benefit from the efficiency of hand-held picking without the overhead of managing bins.
New grid order entry for item transfer orders ensures replenishments will take less time and effort to process.
You can now quickly manage and approve new wholesaler customers to purchase from your ecommerce store. With an improved form and flexible approval workflows, the new SuiteCommerce Sign Up extension lets you easily manage the registration and approvals of buyers from your ecommerce store.
Invoice grouping enables the consolidation of multiple invoices into a single invoice that’s delivered to the customer, and it also allows payments accepted at the group level to be applied to individual invoices. This reduces manual grouping, ensures accurate invoices and improves cash flows by decreasing days sales outstanding.

New Feature highlights in the SuiteCloud Platform

Make the NetSuite user and administrator experience feel local for any global business with new internationalization tools and processes. The release introduces support for worldwide telephone numbers, and native India numerical formatting and new tax record types. The manage translations environment improves translation consistency with more options for data re-use. Administrators can now directly edit parent translation strings that propagate properties to read-only child strings.
Improved administration of roles and permissions in Access Management by surfacing new views into the pre-configured administrator role in a streamlined interface and provide better visibility into all users associated with this role. This helps to ensure the right level of access is given to users without over-reliance on the administrator role when modeling other roles in your account and allows for better Access Management and account security.
With the IDE-agnostic Node.js Command Line Interface (CLI), NetSuite’s first-of-a-kind open source distribution publicly available on GitHub and npmjs.com, DevOps teams can create a wide range of possibilities to efficiently manage and automate SDF projects across the entire software development lifecycle using common Node commands.
