Novutech Cultuur

October 08 2021

Als nieuw aangeworven Business Analyst bij Novutech wilde ik enkele inzichten delen over de eerste weken van mijn avontuur. Welkom bij Novutech
  • Een korte speeddating sessie met het hele team, tijdens een stevig ontbijt.

  • Geplande videoconferenties tijdens jouw eerste week. Om met je hoofd in klantvergaderingen te duiken? Helemaal niet! Verschillende teamleden, verspreid over verschillende entiteiten van het NovuTeam, nemen de tijd om uit te leggen hoe je de verschillende tools die tot jouw beschikking staan, kunt installeren en gebruiken.
Het is een solide basis om aan je reis te beginnen! Duik in de NovuWorld Als je eenmaal gesetteld bent, begint je onderdompelingproces:

  • Onze cultuur gedijt bij het delen van ervaringen, uitdagingen en tijdbesparende tips via samenwerkingstools die bijdragen aan de groei van het bedrijf. Zo wordt bijv. Google Chat intensief gebruikt voor interne Q&A.
  • Training neemt verschillende vormen aan, van e-learningsessies met praktische oefeningen tot praktijkgerichte lessen tijdens een uitgebreide tweedaagse sessie georganiseerd door Oracle NetSuite. Daarnaast geeft onze interne Accounting Expert training over de basisbeginselen van Financiën, waardoor je ook een goed begrip krijgt van deze materie.
EénTeam, continue groei Bij Novutech beperken grenzen ons niet; ze openen deuren voor innovatieve samenwerkingen. Door middel van cross-functionele projecten bouwen we aan teamcohesie die geografische grenzen overstijgt, waardoor individuele groei en schaalbaarheid van het bedrijf worden bevorderd.

Bruisende bedrijfscultuur Bedrijfscultuur is hier meer dan alleen woorden. Het gaat om echte ondersteuning, toegankelijkheid en toegewijde buddysystemen die jouw professionele en persoonlijke welzijn garanderen. Dit snelle gevoel van verbondenheid motiveert nieuwe medewerkers om volledig te investeren in onze missies en waarden.

A Journey through ERP and Alternatives

October 08 2021

The journey through ERP and alternatives explores various software solutions for businesses facing evolving needs and technological changes. It begins with Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), an integrated system managing processes like accounting and HR, ideal for growing organizations with complex operations.

ERP - An All-in-One Solution

ERP, or Enterprise Resource Planning, acts as a comprehensive solution for businesses, integrating functions like finance, HR, and inventory management. It streamlines operations by eliminating duplicate data entry and enhancing workflow efficiency. Its data integration ensures seamless communication between departments, enabling detailed reporting for informed decisions. ERP's scalability accommodates business growth with modules covering various aspects like finance, supply chain, HR, CRM, and production. However, ERP implementation is complex, requiring meticulous planning, including process mapping, training, and system customization. Choosing ERP necessitates careful alignment with current needs, growth goals, and financial resources. Despite complexities, it remains a potent tool for enhancing efficiency, data integration, and decision-making in business operations.

Specialization in Action

Best-of-Breed software specializes in distinct business functions like accounting or CRM, offering advanced functionality and expertise. Organizations choose these solutions for their in-depth capabilities, flexibility in tool selection, cost-effectiveness for specific needs, expert domain knowledge, and integration capabilities. However, integrating these solutions requires specialized middleware or API development, posing a challenge. Determining the right mix involves assessing needs, integration requirements, cost analysis, and scalability. This approach allows for a personalized software adventure but requires careful planning aligned with organizational goals. Finding the right specialized pieces is key to completing the larger business picture.

Accessibility and Convenience

Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) in the cloud allows access to applications via the internet on a subscription basis, eliminating local installations and maintenance. SaaS provides quick deployment, scalability, and managed updates, reducing maintenance worries. Its accessibility suits remote work scenarios and reduces initial investment through subscription pricing. SaaS spans various domains like office productivity, finance, CRM, and project management. Considerations for SaaS deployment involve stringent security measures, integration capabilities, customization options, and understanding service level agreements. It has transformed work practices by offering accessibility, flexibility, and cost savings. However, organizations must thoroughly assess SaaS solutions to align with specific needs while maintaining high security and performance standards.

A unique solution

Custom software development tailors solutions to fit organizations' unique processes and needs, prioritizing their requirements over off-the-shelf software. Customization provides unparalleled flexibility, optimizing processes, eliminating unnecessary features for cost efficiency, and offering a competitive edge while growing with the organization as a long-term investment. The development process involves identifying needs, drafting detailed specifications, and iterative stages of software building, testing, and refinement for alignment with organizational requirements. Despite benefits, custom software poses challenges such as high development costs and time, ongoing maintenance, potential dependency on developers, and the need for adaptability to changing business conditions. It offers extensive customization options, optimizing processes, and fostering a competitive edge for organizations unable to meet needs with standard solutions. However, opting for custom software requires careful consideration of associated costs, specific needs, and future growth expectations.

Community and Freedom

Open-source software provides powerful solutions free from closed system constraints, enabling public access to source code for viewing, modifying, improving, and distributing. It fosters collaborative software development. Reasons for choosing open source over proprietary systems include cost savings, customization via accessible source code, independence from single vendors, community-driven improvement, and transparent security assessment. It's used across various domains like operating systems (Linux), office productivity (LibreOffice), web development (Apache, PHP, MySQL), content management (WordPress, Drupal, Joomla), and databases (PostgreSQL, MySQL). However, challenges include the need for external support, management complexity, implementation challenges, and the necessity for staff training to understand the software. This model marks a paradigm shift, granting organizations freedom to use, customize, and share solutions without ownership restrictions or vendor dependency. Its success relies on a collaborative ethos, empowering organizations to leverage technology while upholding principles of collaboration and freedom.

The Choice of Software

Selecting software isn't merely a one-time choice but a strategic decision that profoundly impacts organizations. A software strategy encompasses planning, implementation, and management of an entire software ecosystem, considering factors beyond individual applications to align with business objectives:
  • Alignment with Business Goals
  • Scalability
  • Cost Management
  • User Experience
  • Security and Compliance
  • Integration.
In the evaluation phase, a structured approach is key:
  • Needs Analysis
  • Options Exploration.
  • Supplier Comparison.
  • Proof of Concept (PoC).
  • Cost and Security Analysis
  • User Feedback.
Continuous evaluation and adaptation are essential:
  • Continuous Evaluation
  • Upgrades and Adaptation.
Choosing the right software aligns strategically with organizational performance and efficiency. Organizations should comprehend the long-term implications of their software choices, developing and evolving a thoughtful software strategy to find a strategic partner that aids in achieving success and goals.

Navigating the Professional Journey: From Bike Mechanic to NetSuite ERP Consultant - Meet Mark's Inspiring Career Path

Embarking on a Non-Traditional Path

When I started college in 2005, I quickly realized this was not the way for me. I was mostly interested in the practical side of things, not so much in the theory behind. After just half a year of college I stopped and started working. I was convinced there would be other ways to learn and become experienced in my professional life. This was back in 2006 already. From there, my journey started to where I’m now.   

Pedaling into the Workforce

In 2006 I started my first job as a bike mechanic. I was very passionate about cycling, riding races in the weekends and working on bikes during the week. In my free time I started building some websites. For a while there was my own website about cycling, and a website for a fundraiser project I helped with. At this point, IT started to interest me already.  After a few years as a bike mechanic, I switched to a distribution company, of course also in the cycling industry. I started in the warehouse/assembly department of the company, but quickly found my way into logistics. I reckoned a few things could be made easier, the assembly process could be more efficient, and after some of these improvement ideas were actually implemented, I was promoted to the role of logistics coordinator, still working hands-on on day-to-day tasks within the logistics department, but also trying to improve where possible.   

Navigating Industry Shifts

Then came 2013, and the distribution company went bankrupt. Fortunately I was picked up by a new company who could use my logistics experience. This company produced and sold cycling shoes. Lake Cycling used to be a US based company, but two entrepreneurs from the Netherlands took over the company and brought it back to life. I came in at the very start and had the opportunity to help shape the company’s logistics. One of the essential steps was the selection of an ERP system. This is where Netsuite came into my life. In my previous job I worked with Microsoft Navision, but for Lake Cycling we needed something more flexible and, as we traveled around the world much of our time to meet colleagues located in China and the US, accessibility to the system was very important.  

NetSuite Chronicles

After a short selection round, we chose Netsuite as our new system and ERP Fastforward (who became Fast Four and is now part of Zone&Co) as our implementation partner. The main reasons why we selected Netsuite in those days, still stand true today. Scalability, flexibility and a true cloud solution.  I took the lead on the NetSuite implementation for Lake Cycling, working in tandem with Hylke Sluis of ERP Fastforward. We implemented all Finance, Order-to-Cash and Logistics processes. This was my first experience with Netsuite as a user and afterwards, as the system administrator.   

Consulting Evolution

From 2014 to 2019 I worked in various logistics roles, within manufacturing and transport, where I gained a lot of first-hand experience on all these processes within various systems. In 2019 I got back in touch with Hylke Sluis and met the Fast Four team of by then 35 consultants in Amsterdam. Hylke convinced me to make the switch and become a NetSuite ERP consultant specialized in logistics, and this turned out to be one of the best decisions I ever made.   

Journey with Novutech

Since then, I’m part of the team which is now Novutech. Since my start in 2020, I have worked on 5 implementation projects within the manufacturing, software, retail and e-commerce industries, as well as on various optimization projects at our existing customers. From 2022, I also joined our pre-sales team, demoing NetSuite in general to prospects, or setting up specific tailored concept demos to show what NetSuite can do for them.  With the on-hand experience from my previous jobs and all the knowledge I gained within NetSuite, I can transform our clients business processes into solutions within Netsuite so they can improve their way of working and be prepared for the next steps in their growth.  With this work I get a look into the kitchen of some very interesting companies, all with their own processes and way of working. Meeting new people every year and building a relationship with customers gives me a lot of energy and motivation. With every new project I learn more and this allows me to bring this experience to the next project.

Volume Based Landed Cost 

October 08 2021

What is the Landed Cost?

Landed cost is the total cost of a product, accumulating all expenses required to receive the product from the supplier during the procurement process. It includes the actual purchase price of the goods and all shipment charges, freight charges, duty fees, taxes, insurance and all the other costs incurred along the way.  In today's competitive conditions, calculating the landed cost accurately is crucial for companies, more than ever. Proper calculation of product costs enables determining the sales price as precise as possible, whilst still guaranteeing profitability.  

How to manage Landed Cost in Netsuite?

NetSuite's Landed Cost Management module seamlessly integrates with Purchase Orders, Inbound Shipments and Vendor Bills, facilitating the inclusion and allocation of supplementary expenses like shipping, insurance, and customs duties. It incorporates diverse allocation methods such as by weight, quantity, value, or even customizable approaches, on global transaction or line item level, ensuring precise and efficient cost assignment. The system automatically computes the total asset cost for received items, while robust reporting tools offer comprehensive insights into landed costs in real time. This empowers informed decision-making for procurement and logistics, ensuring financial accuracy, compliance, and optimized inventory management within the NetSuite platform.

Novutech Landed Cost Solution

Out-of-the-box, Netsuite provides 3 cost allocation methods: weight, quantity and value. However, for some companies who source very diverse items from multiple suppliers in (mostly) overseas countries, the requirements for proper tracking of landed cost are more demanding. One example would be the import of lightweight, high volume items in sea containers, which requires the purchaser to allocate the shipping costs to the different items based on the volume they take up in each container. Based on our experience working for customers with such diverse supply chains, Novutech brings you a comprehensive solution to have more flexibility on landed cost, featuring volume based and even customized allocation methods. Besides, our solution also caters for the recording of additional costs for Inbound shipments after receiving and the subsequent recalculation of the item costs for historic receipts.  

Key Features

  • Volume Based Landed Cost 
  • Landed Cost over duty Percentages
  • Based on inbound shipments 
  • Flexibility to add expenses after receipt 
  • Recalculation for open periods
  • Multicurrency
 

Customized allocation methods

Custom Landed Cost Process

The custom process developed by Novutech includes the following steps:
  • Landed cost transactions are created by users and applied onto an inbound shipment,  after bills and manually entered transactions are completed 
  • Users can process all the charges over receipts which are related with the specific inbound shipment.   
  • During the allocation process, the Netsuite landed cost lines will be updated with the data sourced from Novutech’s landed cost form.  
  • This allocation process can be re-run for open periods.

Be Prepared for the Digital Future with This Essential Checklist!

October 08 2021

As technology rapidly evolves, organizations must prepare for the digital future. Emerging technologies like AI, IoT, Blockchain, Edge Computing, and Quantum Computing are reshaping the way we use business software on a daily basis. To adapt and remain competitive, companies should invest in tools that:
  1. Embrace Continuous Learning
  2. Foster Innovation
  3. Provide a Flexible Architecture
  4. Prioritize Data Management.
  5. Foster Collaboration

A greener future

When we think about sustainability in the context of software, it means reducing the environmental impact of software development and usage as much as possible. This includes addressing energy use in data centers, managing electronic waste, considering resources in software development, and evaluating the impact of software enabling remote work on transportation emissions and energy consumption. To implement greener software practices, organizations can adopt various strategies such as using energy-efficient data center solutions, transitioning to cloud computing, optimizing software code for efficiency, and managing electronic waste through recycling and reuse. Sustainable development can be further enhanced by reducing unnecessary features and partnering with environmentally friendly hosting providers. The shift towards remote work and mobile software has positively contributed to sustainability by reducing commuting, encouraging shared mobility, and promoting the advancement of eco-friendly transportation technologies. It's crucial for organizations to promote transparency, report environmental impacts, seek certifications for eco-friendly software and hosting providers, and educate employees about the environmental consequences of software use. Integrating sustainability into software strategies not only decreases the carbon footprint but also aligns with cost reduction and compliance with strict sustainability regulations. Ultimately, organizations can pave the way for a greener future by prioritizing sustainability within their software strategies.

Software in a World of Privacy and Security

In the digital era, safeguarding software privacy and security is crucial given the evolving digital threats and privacy regulations. Organizations are faced with challenges such as data protection, compliance with regulations like GDPR (EU) and CCPA (CA, USA), and defensive measures against cyber threats. Data protection involves minimizing data collection, securing explicit consent for processing, enabling data access rights, and enforcing robust security measures for confidentiality and integrity. Addressing cyber threats requires basic practices like regular updates and strong passwords, coupled with advanced solutions such as IDS and SIEM for threat detection, alongside employee training in security protocols. The prevalence of open-source software raises security concerns, prompting organizations to manage OSS components, conduct risk assessments, establish compliance policies, and implement strong patch management procedures. Privacy and security serve as the foundation for successful software applications. Organizations need proactive policies, security measures, and training programs to address these concerns, enabling them to navigate regulations, mitigate security risks, and maintain the trust of customers and partners.

Trends and Predictions

In our exploration of the future evolution of software development, several compelling trends and predictions have emerged:
  • AI and Machine Learning
  • Edge Computing and IoT
  • Quantum Computing
  • Durability and Sustainability
  • Blockchain and Decentralization
The future software landscape promises smarter, faster, and more secure applications through AI, edge computing, quantum computing, and blockchain integration. Sustainability, privacy, and adaptability to emerging technologies will be crucial for organizations seeking to thrive in this dynamic software realm.

Software Ethics

Software, while promising positive transformation, also presents inherent risks, including privacy breaches, data misuse, and discrimination. Thus, the foundation of software ethics comprises these fundamental principles:
  • Privacy
  • Transparency
  • Accuracy
  • Responsibility
  • Non-discrimination
AI and Machine Learning introduce ethical complexities, such as bias in algorithms and ensuring human control over autonomous systems. Organizations are urged to embed software ethics into their processes by forming ethics committees, providing training, conducting impact assessments, and establishing reporting mechanisms. The future will witness an amplified emphasis on responsible AI, data protection, and transparency in software ethics. Collaboration among developers, organizations, and policymakers is crucial in fostering ethical software practices.

QUOTE

“The first meeting we had with Novutech was very convincing, and it was part of the reason why we chose NetSuite. Novutech had a lot of experience in NetSuite. They had several implementations behind them and they were very pragmatic in terms of response, in terms of project. They were challenging us when it was needed.” Nicolas Peeters - CFO “The real added value for Actito is that Novutech started implementing from scratch so they know everything, the constraints, the technical environment, the people so it is easy for them to understand what Actito needs and knowing the history, Novutech can build further and further in a smooth way which makes things really easy and fast.” Brieuc Noel de Burlin - System Manager & ADV Team leader Do you want to know more about our expertise and how we run NetSuite implementations?

Meet Carlos, NetSuite ERP Consultant

October 08 2021

Background

In my university years, I earned the degree Bachelor of Science in Accountancy from Ateneo De Naga University (Philippines) in 2002.  During the first few years of my career, I worked in various industries such as banking, Business Process Outsourcing (BPO), and Shared Services. It was in 2007 that I decided to embark on a new journey by focusing on one specific industry which is Information Technology (IT). It was during that time that I had the chance to work for Oracle Netsuite as a Senior Technical Support Specialist. It was also my first encounter with an ERP and a cloud-based system. At the start, it was mind boggling as there were a lot of things that I needed to understand, without any previous ERP knowledge or experience. As the months passed by, I began to learn lots of things and I was amazed by the efficiency, mobility, and scalability that NetSuite brings to the users. Since then, I began to appreciate and love this powerful system. In the Spring of 2022, I took the bold decision to move to the Netherlands with my family, having successfully applied for a position as Senior Consultant in the NetSuite implementation team of Fast Four. 

How I joined Novutech?

It was in February 2023 that I became part of the Novutech team following their acquisition of the Fast Four Netsuite Solution Provider team where I was a member of.  My role at Novutech is that of a Senior Consultant doing implementations, product support, and optimization jobs for new and / or existing customers. What I like about working for Novutech is that it’s a multicultural team where I have the opportunity to share, learn, and evolve to be a better version of myself in both professional and personal aspects.  

My journey as a Novutech team member

The first few months after the acquisition were a period of adjustments and getting to know the rest of the team, as they are located in multiple countries across Europe. We spent a fair bit of time getting to know who is doing what and their various approaches and habits when it comes to working life.  Fast forward to the start of 2024, I’m part of the Novutech team now for 9 months and I can say that my professional relationship with my colleagues has evolved and matured in a positive way. There is still room for improvement in terms of contacts with other team members but it’s a lot better than before and I am continuously trying to enhance this.  At Novutech, I’ve been involved in various project implementations for new customers and had the opportunity to work closely with my colleagues from other locations. From time to time, I work on some support and optimization jobs for our existing customers.  I also had the chance to mentor some new and junior colleagues who have recently joined the Netsuite space and to share with them the knowledge and best practices which I gained through my many years in the industry.  As a member of the team, I can say that all Novutechos work hard because we want to be the best in what we do. We want to deliver what we promise to our customers and maintain the company’s good name and integrity. However, when we are not working, we also make sure that we have 100% pure fun together. This is exactly what we did e.g. during our annual company trip last October, in the vibrant city of Lisbon. I am thankful to be part of this young, dynamic and exciting team!
