1. Reducing Data Redundancy and Improving Data Integrity
Data tends to get messy over time, especially if the system that you are using to manage your data does not have data integrity controls in place. Therefore, data migration to NetSuite and a general data cleanup almost always go hand-in-hand. A big part of moving your data into NetSuite will involve learning where data is currently stored in exact duplicate, versus which records contain overlapping information with some unique data attached to it.
For example, data can be stored in multiple departments with different categorizations of the same customers, products, or processes, but that doesn’t mean they are identical. It is possible for each department to keep its own distinct set of data on these individuals and items.
2. Keeping Data Migration Costs Low
We understand that a full NetSuite Integration can be an expensive process. With that in mind, we want to help you reduce the costs that are directly related to data migration.
It might be tempting to go find a cheaper data migration technology and have your on-site staff learn to use it and perform the data imports without having to pay for expert consulting hours. What most people don't realize, is that this seemingly cheap approach of DIY data migration without consulting an expert can drive up costs for years to come due to duplicate/missing data, poor data organization, or even having to re-do parts of the initial data migration.
The cheapest way to handle a data migration is to make sure it's done right the first time.
3. Making Regulatory Compliance Easier
If you've been working with customer data for a while, you've probably learned just how hard it is to comply with the ever-changing laws and regulations surrounding how businesses can use and store data.
Depending on what industry and region you operate in, complying with data regulations can be a major hurdle or a minor inconvenience. Either way, we want to use this technology and our expertise to help make the regulatory aspect of data management easier for you as you work to implement NetSuite.
