NetSuite is a feature-rich solution with an exhaustive set of capabilities. The entire business management suite omits no area of the business, covering CRM, ecommerce, ERP, financial management and project management in depth. Each of the suite’s modules is as extensive as the next in terms of functionality. This means that modules are just as effective when used on their own as they are in combination with other products. Each module is an app in its own right meaning the entire suite can be built up gradually as you need it.
NetSuite offers a consistent user experience across all of its modules, adopting the same layout and design for all its apps. All of the core areas covered by the app’s features are laid out in individual tabs on a navigational header, such as sales/ marketing, expenses, HR, financials, support, recurring revenue analytics and so on.
NetSuite’s interface is not as slick and modern as some of the newer, small businesses-oriented applications. However, the complexity of the reporting, analytics and detailed business information would be hard to present in a minimalistic manner. The app works seamlessly on mobile and tablets.
