NetSuite Adds Supply Chain Features Based on Customer Insights

Posted by Gavin Davidson, Product Marketing Manager for ERP

When you think about supply chain management, the key word is chain. In a modern, global supply chain solution you can’t tackle just one area of the supply chain. Everything is linked and connected – especially in the world of IoT and blockchain.

So when NetSuite decided to tackle the Supply Chain, we didn’t do it alone – we did it with our customers. We invited a group of our high tech and consumer electronics customers to our head office in San Mateo and together we mapped out their operations and had them identify where they felt the most pain with post-it notes – kind of like a heat map – but that simple, interactive process formed the basis of the SCOPE project: Supply Chain Operational Excellence.

That was in the fall of 2015 and since then we have repeated the process many times and with many more customers. The end result is that as we release new functionality, we know that it solves our customers most challenging business problems. In the 2018.1 release, we are unveiling a variety of new or enhanced features that affect all parts of the business:

Inbound Shipment Managment
NetSuite WMS
Inventory Status
Quality Management
Supply Chain Snapshot
Automatic Location Assignment
Cross-Subsidiary Fulfillment
Engineering Change Orders
SuitePeople

Wait, SuitePeople? Why is that there? The most critical part of any company’s growth is the people that make it run. While we focus on supplying solutions that enable the accelerated growth of your business, its your employees who do the i’s and cross the t’s – so we figured you’d appreciate some help in making them grow as well.
