What do you do when you know a NetSuite upgrade is coming? You know you're going to get the upgrade; you'll get a notification from NetSuite with the date that your NetSuite environment will be upgraded to the newest version. How will you prepare? For many, this is familiar, and they've worked out a process, [...]

When Your System Isn’t What You Thought It Would Be

2018-08-15T14:52:48-05:00 By |Business Process, NetSuite Implementation, Requirements|0 Comments

It's hard. You research. You investigate. You form opinions. Then you invite salespeople to talk with you about how the system they represent can address all of your issues, your concerns, and your plans. You finally decide on a system, and you ask for references. You talk with them, and you hear nothing but good [...]

Three words. "Frame of reference." That's the way we, as humans, tend to look at things. We make sense out of new information based on data our brain has collected from what has gone before - what we know, what we've done, and what we've seen.  I have a friend who uses the term "polluted [...]

Generic NetSuite and E-commerce Don’t Go Together

2018-08-15T15:04:13-05:00 By |E-Commerce, NetSuite Implementation|0 Comments

Recently, we've noticed a ton of companies with their public-facing e-commerce stores still using the generic NetSuite links of shopping.netsuite.com, shopping.na1.netsuite.com, or shopping.na2.netsuite.com instead of a link representative of the business itself. For example, the Widgets R Us company online store has the following link: http://shopping.netsuite.com/widgetsrus. Hard to get YOUR store optimized for search engines when the main part of the [...]

Business Process Requirements – Make Them Heard

A widget salesperson comes to your door offering the latest and greatest of modern conveniences and convinces you that their widget is superior to all others on the market.  You're in dire need, so you agree to purchase it.

2018-08-15T15:16:34-05:00 By |Business Process, NetSuite Implementation|0 Comments

With regard to software installations and business processes, there are two paths that implementers can take with you: either the "my way or the highway" path, or, in our case, "which highway do you want to travel together?" Don't measure a successful partnership with a NetSuite Solution Provider like Adaptive Road simply by whether the installation [...]

NetSuite Project – Good, Fast, Cheap – Pick… Three?

2018-08-15T15:17:53-05:00 By |NetSuite Implementation, NetSuite Projects|0 Comments

If you were asked to describe the "Iron Triangle," would you respond by saying it's a musical instrument that makes a tinging sound?  How about a place where ships are never heard from again?  Or maybe you already know it's a reference to Project Management. If I called it the "Triple Constraint" would that ring [...]

NetSuite Implementations: When Saving Time and Money Hurts You

2018-08-15T15:39:09-05:00 By |NetSuite Implementation, Saving Money|0 Comments

When it comes to NetSuite implementations, we have seen the good, the mediocre, and the indifferent. There are some NetSuite implementers who do a really great job (and, not to be immodest, we’re one of them), but there are others who simply aren’t providing the right service for their customers. Now, before you read any [...]
