And this software hairball results in real pain where manufacturers are faced with an incomplete business view across these multiple countries, operations and locations. The efficiencies realized from lower cost operations often gets outweighed by the increase in business complexity and inefficiencies that result. And the lack of timely necessary information leads to increased costs, lower productivity and delays. All ultimately resulting in the cost of business being too high for what is required.
NetSuite’s suite really enables the 21st century manufacturing business. Providing a complete business view across the entire business in real-time allowing you to make decisions based on the entire business. We enable companies with streamlined dynamic processes going across the company from finance to sales to marketing to inventory providing for the 21st century manufacturing business to operate in today’s ever-changing environment. And through anytime, anywhere access, netsuite can be accessed from your browser from any computer, mobile phone or tablet computer. And by providing a low cost of operations manufacturers can focus on the business not the infrastructure.
As NetSuite built out our solution key for us was to ensure that we focused on the elements that satisfied the needs of manufacturing companies.

And for customers that need to extend NetSuite or connect to existing systems, NetSuite is easily extended through a comprehensive partner network providing advanced functionality where appropriate.
But don’t’ just take our word for it, In an independent study conducted by Nucleus Research and over 20 manufacturing companies, they discovered that Netsuite delivers real tangible benefits for manufacturing companies.For example, in the area of inventory managementCustomers using NetSuite reported inventorycarrying reductions of an average of 20 percent.In terms of purchasing productivity - Manufacturers using NetSuite were able to improve the productivity of purchasers by an average of 35 percent.In terms of reducing IT costs , NetSuite often displaced at least two on-premiseapplications and their related support costs.Manufacturers on NetSuite reported sales increases of up to 25 percent as a result of improved e-commerce capabilities, increased customer satisfaction, and more productive, informed salespeople.

NetSuite has helped hundreds of manufacturing customers as a few examples – Richard Osborne, Co-OwnerCountrypet NaturalsSince upgrading to NetSuite’s integrated business solution in 2002, Countrypet Naturals has increased its yearly revenue from $500K to $5 million, and has been able to handle this growth by adding just one new employee during that time.Or David Stover the CFO of Asahi Kasei - We were spending 3% of our revenue on SAP. By switching to NetSuite, we reduced that cost to 0.1% of revenue.Or the CFO of Mountz - We have upwards of 40,000 item masters with hundreds of thousands of transactional records and yet the performance of Netsuite remains every bit as good as when we began with significantly fewer records. And, the TCO is less than we were paying when we were using Microsoft Dynamics. During that era at Mountz we maintained a database manager and software developer on staff at a high cost, not to mention the necessity of regular upgrading of hardware and software and the annual maintenance tax from Microsoft.
