10 Signs Your Lower-middle Market Organization or Emerging Growth Company is a Good Fit for NetSuite

  1. Your business is going through a period of rapid growth or strategic transition and you need to implement a scalable solution for reducing operational complexity and strategically managing increased transaction volumes, multi-subsidiaries, or global operations.
  2. You have complex processes for accounting, inventory management, order processing, and/or customer relationship management that could benefit from being streamlined, automated, or managed under one comprehensive system.
  3. Your company utilizes multiple sales channels (e.g. retail, wholesale, and e-commerce) and needs a unified platform to ensure proper oversight.
  4. You have identified a need for in-depth financial and operational reporting, but your current software or process is failing to provide actionable insights, track KPIs, and support data-driven decision making.
  5. Your organization deals with complex inventory management processes, such as assembly, warehousing, or lot tracking.
  6. Your business operates on a global scale and you need support to manage international subsidiaries, customers, and currencies.
  7. You are looking to enhance your customer relationship management and/or provide your customers and clients with streamlined communication and more visibility.
  8. You have unique or complex operations or regulatory compliance requirements (e.g. tax or cybersecurity compliance) that require a high level of customization.
  9. You need to access vital company information from outside the office or you have teams working remotely that need to access data on the go – and do so securely.
  10. You have a long-term growth strategy, but you realize that your current system will not be able to adapt to your changing business needs as you scale.
