Excelym NetSuite Implementation: What to Expect from Our Engagement

    1. We produce starting on day one. Our leadership and execution team will meet to understand the business needs, drivers, constraints, and overall vision.
    2. We will map the current, and then the desired future state, understand and document cost implications, and overlay the gaps that need to be addressed along the way.
    3. We iterate. Our method is more agile than waterfall. This means we work in shorter increments of work to prove concepts faster, demonstrate results immediately, and partner with our clients to guide and shape the desired solution over the course of the effort.
    4. Our goal is to get you online, trained, staffed, and supported throughout the ERP launch. We are there for you at completion, and we support you for as long as you need.

Our Methodology for NetSuite Implementation: A Detailed Walkthrough

Phase 1: Discovery & Analysis/Design + Main NetSuite Accounting Platform Deployment/Implementation

Our NetSuite Implementation process begins by sending a client or a lead (yes, even when no contract has been signed yet we already try to get the ball rolling!) with a NetSuite Scoping Questionnaire to begin our analysis process. This involves a thorough review of your existing business processes to identify gaps and ROI opportunities that can be addressed with NetSuite. This happens ahead of the scheduled NetSuite demo, scoping exercise and Q&A session for your organization.

At the end of this stage in the process, we will achieve two things:

    1. A quote/ estimate for your NetSuite SaaS License (annual subscription) [direct from Oracle]
    2. A quote/estimate/ proposal for the Professional Services/ Statement of Work for the Implementation project [direct from Excelym].

Once we have this information, the actual implementation of the NetSuite platform can start. We will roll out all the NetSuite modules (by client need). We begin by configuring necessary settings like Analytics, Sales Orders, Inventory Management, Multiple Currencies etc., and adding customizations that meet your unique business needs.

If there are data migration requirements, we will validate existing data and determine the best strategy for migrating it. And after having deployed and tested, this is followed by user training and testing of key business processes. We will also provide a one (1) month post-go-live support to ensure a smooth transition and any other issues that may arise during this period can also be addressed.

At the end of this phase, we will have achieved:

    1. A fully deployed and tested NetSuite platform + modules ready for business use.
    2. All users with access to the platform and trained on their respective roles/responsibilities.
    3. Full support from Excelym for any post-go-live technical queries or issues.

Note: What sets us apart in our approach in NetSuite implementation with other NetSuite Solution Providers is that we already incorporate the business requirements and design milestones during Phase 1 or the actual ‘Discovery & Analysis/Design’ stage of the implementation process.

Phase 2: NetSuite Customization/Integrations/Ongoing or Post Go-Live Support

At this point, the implementation project is considered complete and you can go live with NetSuite. However, if you have any custom requirements or integrations with other systems (ERP, CRM) that need to be implemented, then we will start working on those in this phase. We can help you with any additional customizations or implementations required, as well as resolve technical queries and issues that may arise in a timely manner.

At the end of this phase, we will have achieved:

    1. A fully customized and integrated NetSuite platform ready for business use.
    2. Fully trained users with access to the platform, as well as continual support from Excelym for any post-go-live technical queries or issues.

Note: Our ongoing support also includes keeping an eye out for any security vulnerabilities and making sure all users are using the platform correctly. Finally, our team can also provide advice and guidance on best practices related to NetSuite, such as configuring analytics or setting up recurring processes. This will help to ensure that your business is always leveraging the full power of NetSuite and taking advantage of all its features and capabilities. All this, helps our clients reduce their total cost of ownership and ensure a successful long-term ROI from using the platform.

Post Go-live Support: NetSuite Support/BPO or Managed Services

At this point, the implementation and customization project is considered complete with a fully operational NetSuite platform, customizations and integrations. However, for some businesses that may be looking for long-term support or assistance in managing the entire NetSuite platform (including basic user support) – we also provide managed services through our team of experts.

Our post go-live services include:

    1. NetSuite platform and user support
    2. Business Process Optimization (BPO) services
    3. Customizations or integrations required for continued growth/evolution of your business
    4. Data migrations, upgrades and other related tasks
    5. Reporting and Analytics
    6. Custom development (of NetSuite based applications)
    7. Training and Mentoring of the staff

At the end of this phase, we will have achieved:

    1. A fully customized and integrated NetSuite platform that is kept up-to-date and managed by our experts.
    2. All users with access to the platform, as well as continual support from Excelym for any post-go-live technical queries or issues.
    3. Full access to our BPO and managed services team whenever needed, for guidance and advice in leveraging the full potential of NetSuite.

Our Own Proprietary Agile Methodology for a Collaborative NetSuite Implementation

At Excelym, we use an agile methodology that focuses on collaboration with the customer to ensure all requirements are met and issues are effectively addressed. We understand that each client has unique needs and desires so our NetSuite implementations strive to be highly customized, tailored-fit solutions.

Calculating Your NetSuite Implementation Cost: The Excelym Approach

We adhere to a comprehensive, two-step process to determine your NetSuite implementation cost:
    1. First, we conduct a zero-obligation scoping session — free of charge — to gain an in-depth understanding of your business operations, pinpointing the areas of concern, and identifying your specific needs. This allows us to devise a precise roadmap for your transition to NetSuite.
    2. Then our expert team dedicates itself to recognizing the optimal licensing alternative for your business. We collaborate closely with you to determine the most suitable configuration that aligns with your business model and guarantees the most favorable deal.
Note: Our costing is split between fixed-cost and cost that are billed-on-actuals.

Implementation Costing Tables

    • Fixed Costs

The typical project timeline costing estimates falls within the fixed costs bracket. As part of the initial phase, we estimate both development and licensing costs. We strive to provide you with the most accurate cost estimate possible, knowing that your fixed-cost portion is always pre-approved.

    • Billed-on-actuals Costs

The billed-on-actuals portion pertains to external integrations as well as customizations (aka SuiteScripting) and any additional development. The cost for any of these services will be estimated and agreed upon in advance before work begins.

The advantage of working with Excelym is that our experts have extensive industry experience and are knowledgeable about alternative approaches, enabling us to identify the most suitable implementation plan tailored to your requirements.
