NetSuite Implementation

Why is Anchor Group a Preferred Implementation Partner?


NetSuite unifies core business processes including CRM, ecommerce, HR, inventory, manufacturing, and more in a single interface. The way these processes interact with each other will depend on your business. NetSuite Implementation is the process of planning, configuring, testing, and launching a customized instance of NetSuite that meets your unique business needs.

During your NetSuite ERP implementation, you will need NetSuite developers to take care of the code customizations. They will work alongside NetSuite consultants to ensure that all industry standards, unique company needs, and other requirements are met.


Do I need a NetSuite Implementation Partner?

NetSuite Implementation is a complex process. Working with an implementation partner makes this process go smoothly, and ensures a quick and successful go-live.

While you could piece together a team of freelance consultants and developers to help you through it, doing so tends to drive up the price and complexity of a NetSuite Implementation. NetSuite partners capture the best implementation talent and treat your ERP implementation with the attention it needs to stay on track, on budget, and successful!

NetSuite Implementation Plan

What is the first step?

Our team will spend some time with you helping you determine which NetSuite products are necessary for your industry and business. It might be worth it to utilize a custom solution rather than a module! If that is the case, you might save yourself thousands of dollars annually by avoiding an unnecessary licensing fee. This first step is where you will get a highly detailed estimate of your ERP implementation plan. You can count on our estimates to be incredibly detailed to the hour. Once we have determined the "what" of your NetSuite Implementation, we can iron out the "how".

NetSuite implementation steps

Kicking Off a Project

We will kick off the NetSuite implementation by pulling all the decision-makers in a single session. There are always things needed by your team. We will do the heavy lifting by guiding you through strategic decisions based on our experience in your industry. In this step, our project managers help iron out final details within the implementation process, finalizing the "how" of your implementation.

NetSuite Implementation

This is the fun part, where our developers get to put your unique NetSuite implementation plan into action. We are going to dive into the configuration of every NetSuite module while automating data using workflows and SuiteScript to keep your employees working on the projects that keep your business profitable. A successful data migration is key during this step of the implementation process. During this phase, you will see the look of the forms, the look of the templates used for invoicing or other customer-facing documents, and will begin to see the entire product take shape.

Testing NetSuite Implementation

User Acceptance Testing and Training

This is a vital stage for every NetSuite implementation. During this phase, every person that will be utilizing NetSuite for their job will have the opportunity to test out the process while giving input on areas that work to make it more effective for their day-to-day lives. This feedback is essential to your employee buy-in of the finished product. We take this feedback to implement any automation that would make their lives easier or place them on the roadmap if it is not necessary for your Go-Live. This stage is the perfect opportunity for our NetSuite consultants to train your employees on how to utilize NetSuite.

NetSuite Implementation Launch

Test. Test. Test.

Finally, our team will test the heck out of the product to ensure that there is no stone left unturned.


On the designated date, we turn the switch and your company is live on NetSuite. In this part of the project, our team of NetSuite consultants is often on-site with you to help any employees that are having a difficult time understanding what to do. 

NetSuite Implementation Support

Wait... We are done, right?

We wish that was the case, but realistically there will be things you want to add onto the NetSuite ERP to make it be even more efficient for you. Your business will always be changing, and you may have decided to place other modules on the roadmap for after your initial go-live. If you haven't already, this is a great time to add more channels of revenue through a SuiteCommerce website, integrations to Amazon, Walmart, eBay, Overstock, or any other eCommerce platform. Maybe you want the customer center portal to look like an eCommerce website. We can do that too!

NetSuite Implementation FAQs

  • What is NetSuite Implementation?

    A NetSuite implementation is the process a business goes through to set up, configure, and go live with NetSuite ERP (enterprise resource planning) software. A company's NetSuite ERP implementation project is typically completed by certified NetSuite Consultants and Developers working closely with key decision-makers at the company.

  • How long does a NetSuite implementation take?

    The timeframe for an implementation depends on the particular needs of the business that is implementing NetSuite. As a rule, the larger and more complex a business's operations are, the longer an ERP project will take. However, for a mid-sized business, Anchor Group can typically complete a NetSuite implementation in 10–12 weeks!

  • How much does a typical NetSuite implementation cost?

    The total cost of a NetSuite ERP implementation can vary. The larger and more complex a business's operations are, the heavier the lift will be to implement an ERP solution. The total cost of the project will increase due to things like licensing costs, a higher number of customizations, and more developer hours.

  • How to have a smooth NetSuite implementation?

    The best way to achieve a smooth NetSuite implementation is to be thorough in gathering business requirements from the start. Your ideal NetSuite instance may exceed the budget you have available for your initial implementation. But a good NetSuite Consultant can help you identify what you truly need in place for go-live. From there, they can work with you to create a plan for ongoing customization on a timeline that meets your requirements and your budget.

  • How to prepare for a NetSuite Implementation?

    There are several practical steps you can take to prepare for a NetSuite implementation. These steps include cleaning up your existing data and gathering thorough business requirements.

  • What makes a top NetSuite implementation partner?

    NetSuite partners that have a focus area in specific verticals or modules will make them a top NetSuite implementation partner. NetSuite is a massive ERP software, and you should look for a partner with industry knowledge, NetSuite knowledge, and any NetSuite add-on modules you either have or are considering to purchase. You can find partners that specialize in certain verticals or even certain NetSuite add-on modules such as SuiteCommerce.


Engagement Models


Our team is flexible and has several common engagement models 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. While this plan isn't the best fit for a full NetSuite Implementation project, this is great for people who want to slowly build a relationship of trust by working a few hours at a time.


Managed Services

Buy Bulk Hours and Use Them Before They Expire

This can be an ideal option for companies with large projects (like a NetSuite Implementation). For example, you may have a 300-hour project that you need to finish in 2 months. Instead of having to pay for all 300 hours in that 2-month period, you could leverage a managed services plan to spread out the investment expenditure over 6 months.

Looking for steady ongoing customizations post go-live? You can also use a managed service plan to get x number of hours per month spread over the full contract period!
