An enterprise resource planning system such as NetSuite is implemented to meet industry standard business operations and processes. NetSuite is not an “all size fits one” solution but rather an all-in-one customizable solution. Meaning you only customize and add the features needed for your business requirements and objectives. Customization and configurations are key for functionality that will align with the business’s unique tasks.
So now, the question of, what ERP requirements are needed to be met for the ideal combination of features, arises. We will go through the difference between customization and configurations is, as well as why management of these is needed.
When it comes to ERP customizations, there are many things to consider. First of all, they are different from configurations, subtle yet significant differences.
Customizations have a broader view and typically involve custom coding modifications. Much more labor is required and the margin for error is almost nonexistent. Types of customizations can include things like user interface, document & forms: layout, format, invoices, etc., integrations, and functionality modifications and extensions.
Customizations are best when they are used sparingly, because the more you create, the more complex your system will become therefore leading to harder critical software updates.
