As an enterprise resource planning software, NetSuite can manage basically every aspect of your business. But with the breadth of functionality that NetSuite provides comes a sacrifice in the depth of quality. That’s why many businesses, including some of our clients, have opted to use alternate, best of breed systems alongside NetSuite. Having your business data spread out across multiple systems, however, quickly leads to a lack of visibility on the true state of your finances and inventory, limiting your ability to make effective and timely decisions for your business.
The Need for Data Integration
Some of our clients have experienced the frustration of having data spread across multiple systems, and maybe you can relate. If you have multiple business systems, you may find yourself regularly running CSV imports, manually entering data, and manually modifying data in order to harmonize NetSuite with your other systems. And because the information across all your systems is constantly changing, transferring data between systems has basically become a fulltime job.
Is it possible to automate the integration of data across business systems, eliminating much of your time-consuming, error-producing manual data entry? Absolutely. The answer you’re looking for is Celigo.
Using Celigo with NetSuite
Using Celigo with NetSuite enables you to seamlessly connect all your systems, ensuring that critical data will automatically transfer between systems in real-time.
What Does Celigo Connect?
Celigo has connectors for many systems, including top-name systems like Amazon, SalesForce, HubSpot, Magento, and Walmart. It can also seamlessly integrate with databases and FTP servers. And that is just scratching the surface of what Celigo can do. Celigo’s integration marketplace provides a complete listing of all the systems Celigo has connectors for. If your company is using a particular system alongside NetSuite, chances are that Celigo has a connector for that system too. Many of our clients who use NetSuite alongside other best of breed systems have enjoyed using Celigo to cultivate the increased data transparency that results from seamlessly integrating multiple systems.
How Does Using Celigo with NetSuite Work?
One of the common ways that Celigo integrates other systems with NetSuite is by pulling files off of an FTP server, allowing users to fully automate the CSV imports they had previously processed manually. In fact, the files Celigo pulls from the FTP server don’t even need to contain all the information required for an import because Celigo can also use NetSuite saved searches to supply the additional information.
If you are concerned about data slipping through the cracks as a result of all this automation, fear not! The NetSuite-Celigo combination provides options for keeping you in the loop even when your data is quietly moving between systems in the background. For example, you can easily configure NetSuite to send an email whenever items are imported. You can also get error notifications directly from Celigo, alerting you to files that may need more attention.
If you are still manually entering data into NetSuite from a different system or running frequent CSV imports, Celigo might be worth checking out to automate your data entry and integrate your business systems. At SuiteRep, we have had the privilege of assisting clients on their journey to automated data entry and integrated business systems, and we would love to do the same for you as well.
