In the dynamic landscape of business technology, choosing a robust ERP solution with lots of out-of-the-box features but one that also offers the ability for customization, is key. At Novutech, we strive to create an environment designed for our customer and hence, we often tailor Netsuite to their unique needs. Netsuite Suitelets essentially offer a gateway to a more customized and efficient experience and allow NetSuite to match your unique business workflow.
Suitelets are server-side scripts in the NetSuite platform that allows developers to create custom pages and business logic.They are versatile, playing integral roles in various scenarios such as: Data management (Suitelets can be designed to facilitate bulk data import and export operations, allowing users to upload data in a specific format, validate it, and then import it into NetSuite); Automation and Efficiency; and Security and Control. We will discuss a few examples of the latter two in the next paragraphs.
Automation and Efficiency – Case 1: Item Receipt Automation
We recently developed a bespoke solution using NetSuite Suitelets, that has transformed the inventory management system for one of our clients. In response to their need for a more streamlined receipt of items from inbound shipments, we introduced a custom Suitelet that has proven to be a significant addition to their operations.
This Suitelet, embedded within a dedicated custom page, automates the entire item receipt process, minimizing manual efforts and potential errors. Because now, when they receive inbound shipments, the Suitelet automatically triggers a script. This script validates received items, updates inventory records in real-time, and generates the necessary documentation, all in a few clicks. Customers have witnessed a significant boost in efficiency, allowing their teams to spend less time on repetitive tasks and to free up valuable time and resources for more strategic and value-adding activities, ultimately fostering growth and operational excellence.
Automation and Efficiency – Case 2: Intercompany Novupack
At Novutech, innovation and improvement of our Novupacks (i.e. our own-built Add-on software tools embedded in NetSuite) is one of our priorities, and building a Suitelet is part of those improvements. One example of such Novupack enhancements is the Intercompany Management tool, enabling companies to initiate intercompany transactions to ensure a more automatic processing. A crucial part of this tool consists of a Suitelet that facilitates the customization of subsidiary preferences for bill routing. This Intercompany automation is thus allowing users to specify the destination subsidiary for billing purposes, once and for all.
Security and Control: Information Shared Externally
At Novutech, we have crafted Suitelets to serve as channels for secure information exchange beyond the borders of the NetSuite ERP system.
A example would be to distribute PDF invoices to external stakeholders who generally don’t need direct NetSuite access for any other part of their job.
By creating a Suitelet page with restricted access, you can enable users to view PDF invoices and facilitate communication through email. This action can generate and attach PDF invoices to emails, allowing users to share transaction details seamlessly. Moreover, you can incorporate approval or rejection functionality directly into the Suitelet, providing external users with the ability to respond to transactions without requiring a NetSuite user access license.
In conclusion, NetSuite Suitelets open a world of possibilities for businesses seeking to enhance their NetSuite experience. From automation and efficiency over secure information access to robust data management, Suitelets offer a tailored solution that fits your processes and evolves with your business. Embrace the power of customization, take control of your data, and unlock the true potential of NetSuite with Suitelets.
