What is NetSuite Connector and How Does it Work?

January 25, 2024

NetSuite Connector is a tool for establishing data mapping between NetSuite and other systems like:

  • Ecommerce storefronts.
  • Online marketplaces.
  • Point-of-sale systems.
  • Third-party logistics providers.

By making the transfer of data happen automatically, your vital information is centralised and there is no need for manual data entry. You will keep costly errors and delays to a minimum, and will no longer have to rely on spreadsheets and email for data exports and processes.

The module allows you to accurately track items across multiple locations to enhance inventory management. You will be able to more accurately determine reorder points, gain enhanced control over safety stock, and improve the precision of your cycle counts. You will also expedite and streamline order processing and fulfilment via the automation of orders sent to 3PLs, vendors and warehouse locations.

And, with the automation of repetitive tasks like recording and transactions or managing payables and receivables, your accounting will be massively simplified. Be timelier and more accurate in reporting and take greater control over your financial assets.

What are the Key Benefits of NetSuite Connector?

Having introduced you to what NetSuite Connector can do for your business, let’s look more closely at its primary benefits, including improved system integrations and access to more automation.

Increase Visibility

With NetSuite Connector at your disposal, you are empowered to gain greater inventory and order visibility. You will also take greater control over every stage of the data lifecycle, covering all channels for a comprehensive solution.

Interconnect Systems

The solution includes an array of prebuilt integrations so you can get up and running seamlessly. This will enable you to synchronise disparate things like:

  • Inventory.
  • Order.
  • Fulfilment.
  • Returns.

This can be done between NetSuite and a variety of other commerce channels for maximum convenience.

Automation

In a digital world, it becomes far more difficult to compete if you are still relying heavily on manual tasks. Eliminate time-consuming processes like data exports and spreadsheet tracking, minimising costly errors and delays for streamlined, more efficient operations.

The Key Features of NetSuite Connector Explained

With NetSuite Connector, you have a range of integration solutions for top ecommerce, point-of-sale and logistics providers. You will be empowered to automate the transfer of data between systems seamlessly.

Ecommerce and Marketplace

Once you configure NetSuite Connector to integrate your ecommerce platforms and marketplaces into your NetSuite solution, you will find that product listings are automatically added, updated, and removed directly in NetSuite.

All ecommerce and marketplace orders, along with customer information, will become centralised within your NetSuite system. Meanwhile, order fulfilment, gift certificates, coupons and sales taxes will be handled properly.

Shipments and tracking information will be automatically posted back to the order, and automation tools will take care of settlement reports, refunds, returns and cancellations. The system covers many top platforms, including:

  • Amazon.
  • Shopify.
  • Walmart.
  • Magento.
  • eBay.
  • BigCommerce.
  • WooCommerce.

Point-Of-Sale

Connect your point-of-sale solution to NetSuite and you will be able to synchronise data between both systems. This will cover key datasets like:

  • Products.
  • Pricing.
  • Orders.
  • Inventory.
  • Shipping.

Your POS orders will be able to be posted as cash sales in NetSuite, and customer details will be added if names and email addresses are provided. As your retail presence expands, you can easily add more store locations into your system.

Logistics

Integrate NetSuite with your third-party-logistics provider. This will facilitate complete round-trip order fulfilment processing. The results of this will be improvements in the speed and efficiency of your shipping. Designated orders are automatically sent from NetSuite to your third-party logistics provider, and shipping and tracking information will be transmitted directly back to NetSuite.

What Challenges does NetSuite Connector Solve?

This NetSuite module is designed to solve a number of common business challenges relating to data management, order processing, and financials. Here are the key challenges it could help overcome:

  • Disparate systems for data management: Every time you add, update or remove product information, those changes will be propagated across all systems. This enhances accuracy and eliminates a lot of your manual data entry needs.
  • Delays in order processing and fulfilment: Your orders will be automatically sent to third-party logistics providers, vendors and warehouses to minimise delays.
  • Inventory counting errors: The system enables you to accurately track inventory across multiple locations.
  • Manual accounting: The recording and management of transactions and payables/receivables will now be automated, taking a lot of manual work off your hands.

How Much Will I Pay for NetSuite Connector?

NetSuite can be a great option for companies of all sizes. Users subscribe for an annual licence fee. The licence is composed of three main components:

  • The core platform.
  • Optional modules.
  • The number of users.

Customers will also pay a one-off implementation fee at the point of setup. The platform can grow with your business, with options to activate new modules and add users.

NetSuite Connector is now available as an add-on module for NetSuite, so the actual cost will depend on the nature of your licence. You can learn more about purchasing NetSuite in the article How to Buy NetSuite.
