NetSuite ERP for Administrators

By: Anthony Bickof

Overview of this book

NetSuite ERP is a complete, scalable cloud ERP solution targeted at fast-growing, mid-sized businesses and large enterprises. It's the smartly executed combination of financial management operations and built-in business intelligence, which enables companies to make data-driven and well-informed decisions. This book will help administrators become expert enough to be seen as the NetSuite leader at their company and to be able to advise department heads on specific processes, and strategic decisions. We start with an overview of ERP and NetSuite ERP, before going on to explain the built-in features to show the breadth of NetSuite ERP's product and its ease of use. We then discuss business aspects, focusing on the most important processes in NetSuite. Then you'll understand the implementation aspects that are generic enough to cover all the features. The focus then shifts to specific skills that you will need to administer for any system, such as roles, permissions, customization, and data imports. Moving on, you'll learn how to centralize the creation of search templates and give users the tools to pivot the data and expose it to the user in useful ways, such as on the dashboard. The book ends with checklists providing actionable steps that you as an administrator can take to do your job and support the application through new releases and troubleshooting problems.

Help center


NetSuite also has a comprehensive help knowledge base, which is accessed by clicking on the Help button in the top-right corner of the user interface. The help database is searchable, as you can see from the search bar. It also contains a table of contents, listing all the topics by module:

NetSuite Help Center

The articles in the help center are pretty theoretical, giving you the specifics of the features and functions as documented by the NetSuite product management and documentation teams. It can be very useful when learning about new features, but lacks the practical tips and real-world examples you may be looking for. You can find that information in the SuiteAnswers database.
