NetSuite Cost for Customization and Integration
NetSuite Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) Software helps automate several business processes like Accounting, Inventory and Order management. The wide range of functionalities allows NetSuite to be utilized across several business sectors like Retail, Manufacturing, Construction, Food & Beverage, Software &Internet, Transportation, and Logistics.
NetSuite “out-of-the-box” may not meet the client’s needs because of the diverse specifications businesses require from NetSuite. A degree of customization is needed to allow NetSuite to cater to a specific functionality required by the business. Excelym is a NetSuite Solutions Provider Partner that specializes in NetSuite Customization through custom applications and integrated solutions. Excelym’s leading business onshore and offshore model help reduce the NetSuite Cost of Customization.
Excelym also performs NetSuite Integrations to third-party applications. Integrations are sometimes necessary for businesses to fully leverage the functionalities of NetSuite and/ or cater to the customer and/ or vendor requirements for transacting electronically only.
NetSuite Cost for Customization
Implementing NetSuite is an investment but sometimes to further increase the returns some degree of customization may be required to allow businesses to fully leverage the depth of functionalities of NetSuite. The degree of customization can range from simple scripting customization of NetSuite’s forms to as complex as custom-built modules from scratch. For businesses with very complex requirements, Excelym can custom build add-on applications.
The Custom-built modules can be as simple as an “Asset Tracker” that tracks BOM configuration of all assets and manages warranty and customer entitlements. Excelym can also build Custom modules for specific Business Industries like Real-Estate for which a Custom built module can be an Advanced Real Estate Financing and Amortization Management System that generates complex financing amortization schedules. Other customs/ bespoke modules include an Advanced Project Budget Tracking and Management system that manages BOM and budget estimation.
Excelym can also build custom add-on applications that are built specifically for NetSuite and reside externally on IaaS like Amazon Web Services (AWS). The custom build add-on can be for specific industries like manufacturing. The add-on is a production facility tracking and management that tracks production job in the assembly line in real-time.
NetSuite Customization is tailored fit for individual businesses in specific industries or business sectors that is why it is important to partner with a NetSuite Solutions Provider Partner like Excelym. The exact COST for one to take on any Customization project really depends on the complexity of the required functionality, represented as Labor Hour estimates, AND the Rate of the chosen partner to do the integration coding, testing, and deployment. Rates can vary from the $60’s (mid-sized NetSuite Partners to upwards of $200+ from the bigger/ global Tech companies. One can further reduce costs here by hiring freelancers to do the job – at your own risk. There is no formal and structured testing/ QA, training, and deployment so the risk is higher, and reliability and accountability is always in question.
NetSuite Cost for Integration
Businesses often require NetSuite to interact with other third-party software from their customers, vendors and/ or business partners. Excelym with its proprietary EYM.IO Connector allows businesses to seamlessly integrate with other applications like SalesForce, Shopify, Magento and AWS Data pipeline, and AWS Redshift, Banking systems, among others.

The EYM.IO Connector enables a business to integrate banking software, 3rd Party logistics (3PL), and other Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) needs to enhance the flow of information & data between vendors, clients, and business partners.

The cost of integration services is an add-on to the total NetSuite cost and may vary per project so consulting a NetSuite Implementation Consultant from Excelym is advisable.
