Engagement Models

 

Our team is flexible and has several common engagement models that are common for our customers. If one of these models does not work for you, then reach out and tell us about your preference!

Hourly Ad Hoc Projects

Pay by the Hour - No Commitments

Get billed on an hourly basis with no commitment required by you to continue a project. This is great for people who want to slowly build a relationship of trust by working a few hours at a time.

 

This plan can flow directly into milestone pricing which is listed below.

 

Make sure to check out our active promotions to see what discounts we have on our hourly ad hoc rate.

Managed Services

Buy bulk hours and use them before they exprire

Buy hours in bulk and use them up before the agreement end date. This is ideal for companies needing large projects or continuous support for a long duration. This plan can be structured as a payment plan for large projects. For example, you may have a 300-hour project that you need to have finished in 2 months, but you want to make payments for 6 months to spread the investment expenditure.  Hours simply need to be used by the end of the contract period which is typically 6-12 months. You can also utilize this plan to get x amount of hours per month spread over the entire contract period. 

Milestone Pricing

Pay by the hour - No Commitments - Unlock Lower Prices as you go

This is our most popular plan. Start at our standard rate for the first 50 hours, then get $10 off per hour every 50 hours until your rate gets down to the lowest tier. You will be locked in at that tier for life. Make sure to check our promotions to see if you can start at a lower rate. We know you'll like our services and we want to form a long-term partnership with you!

Example: 

$xx/hr for first 0-50 Hours Billed

$xx/hr for 50-100 Hours

...continues until you reach the lowest tier

NetSuite Developer Jobs

You have probably heard that NetSuite ERP supports many modules that integrate seamlessly to create a unified business management system for your company.  Sounds like a great way to manage a business, right?

 

A NetSuite developer's job is to take a clients' objectives and turn those ideas into programs and extensions within a NetSuite environment. While NetSuite is highly customizable and can be tailored to meet your business' specific needs, you need a good NetSuite developer to get the job done right and ensure a high-performing system. We make sure that you get the business management experience you are looking for by helping you connect modules, make customizations, and plug-in third-party apps. 

 

Much of a NetSuite developer's job involves working in a developer account or sandbox account to make changes to SuiteScript with the help of NetSuite APIs. Using a base language called “Javascript”, NetSuite developers can introduce “SuiteScript 2.0” and create all of the features to be introduced into their website and NetSuite ERP back office.

 

The best NetSuite developers have extensive experience and knowledge in all the different types of SuiteScripts to have a tool belt ready for any NetSuite customization. For instance, not all newer NetSuite developers have made a Suitelet which can sometimes be a key ingredient for custom NetSuite tools. SuiteScript goes beyond minor automation, you can create web pages and maneuver data around in almost unlimited ways. 

Background

Many NetSuite Developers have Bachelor’s degrees in one of the following:

  • Business

  • Computer Science

  • Engineering

  • Management Information Systems

 

However, NetSuite Developers come from a variety of academic backgrounds. To ensure that developers learn the necessary skills and requirements to succeed, they become certified in NetSuite. Visit our 'About' page to learn about the diverse educational backgrounds of our NetSuite implementation team and to discover what NetSuite certifications our team holds. (Spoiler: We collectively hold all available NetSuite Certifications).

What are the advantages of using a certified NetSuite developer?

The advantages of using a group that is certified in all areas of NetSuite are boundless. NetSuite developers know that working together is one of the best ways to resolve issues. Utilizing a team of NetSuite professionals optimizes the end-to-end NetSuite solution. The functional consultant will be able to understand the native features that might want to be utilized. A NetSuite architect will be able to solve design any project so that all business objectives are met with the most efficient use of developer time. And the NetSuite developer can execute complex customization through SuiteScript. 

NetSuite Developer Accounts

With a NetSuite Developer account, NetSuite partners like Anchor Group can make customizations in NetSuite without seeing your sensitive company data. NetSuite developer accounts have all of the same features as your business’ production account, and they do not contain any account customizations or production data. Instead, a developer account can be populated with only the data necessary for developing and testing. Developers also use sandbox accounts and multiple sandbox accounts, which are similar to NetSuite developers accounts, but with added layers of tools for developing and testing customizations within NetSuite. Plus it already has a carbon copy of your production data. Both a developer account and a sandbox account are heavily utilized while coding SuiteScript for your business.

 

What is SuiteScript?

Solving the NetSuite Puzzle

If you are just getting acquainted with NetSuite, you might think that the coding language doesn't really matter to you if you're not a developer who will be working with the code directly. So, let's explore how the powerful capabilities of SuiteScript can benefit you.

How does SuiteScript work?

SuiteScript is a scripting language used to extend the NetSuite capabilities and customization available for you. SuiteScript enables full-featured application-level scripting capabilities that support sophisticated procedural logic on both the client and server sides. A SuiteScript Debugger is built into the language giving you full control of how you use your NetSuite and all of the data that's available. 

 

 

Primary Benefits of SuiteScript

One of the biggest benefits is that SuiteScript is built from industry-standard JavaScript, and can therefore be modified using HTML and CSS. This means that your in-house developers don't have to learn a whole new coding language to be able to work in NetSuite. Being built off of JavaScript also allows for full-featured application-level scripting in NetSuite, which is part of what gives the platform so much flexibility and performance.

 

What are the advantages of using SuiteScript 2.0 vs 1.0?

There are a number of advantages to using SuiteScript 2.0. The biggest improvement is the addition of the API modules. Unlike SuiteScript 1.0, modules in SuiteScript 2.0 only load the data that is needed instead of everything which reduces load time and computing power needed to perform the functions. Another improvement is the change of syntax to a Javascript format, this allows for a flattened learning curve and also the use of third party APIs, such as USPS, FedEx, and PayPal, within your own NetSuite system.  

 

 

SuiteScript Component Benefits:

Looking deeper, there are several components within SuiteScript which benefit businesses that use NetSuite. Following is a list of a few SuiteScript components, along with brief explanations of how each component benefits NetSuite users.

  • Suitelets — extensions to SuiteScript provide you with the power to build a custom user interface that is hosted within the NetSuite framework

  • Portlet SuiteScript — allows for easy definition and listing of custom content or inclusion of external data-feeds on NetSuite dashboards via RSS, HTML, Flash, and more

  • Scheduled SuiteScript — allows SuiteScript logic to be processed on a schedule, automating workflows such as imported data, re-assignment of stale leads, or aging invoices

  • User Event SuiteScript — are triggered when users open, edit, or save records in NetSuite, and can be used to enforce business rules and data validation

  • Client SuiteScript —  runs within the user's browser, and can be used to perform processing such as validating user-entered data or running business logic
