3 Things To Consider When Handing Over NetSuite Tasks
June 7, 2022
NetSuite is a powerful software that allows organizations to run businesses more efficiently and cost-effectively. Many industries benefit from using NetSuite — including digital media, education, energy, food and beverage, healthcare, manufacturing, retail, and many more. But to make the most out of the software, it’s beneficial to hire NetSuite certified and experienced staff to implement and run it. These people are often found offshore, such as the Philippines. For this reason, you might want to know the things to consider when handing over NetSuite tasks to an external service provider.For NetSuite partners, the problem is that you have to keep letting go of opportunities to start new projects because of a shortage of certified NetSuite talents in your team — especially during the peak season. Some consultants also tend to leave to become independent. Hiring in-house NetSuite talents takes time and money, largely due to changing prices.For end-users of NetSuite, the main problem is that some businesses don’t know when to outsource. Many companies don’t realize that the NetSuite system takes time, money, and energy until they hire a professional. To solve these problems, it’s beneficial to consider outsourcing.
Things To Consider When Handing Over NetSuite Tasks to an External Service Provider
Plenty of NetSuite partners and end-users prefer NetSuite talents outside the organization - whether it’s onshore or offshore - due to the numerous benefits it brings. If you’re interested, here are the top three things you need to consider:
To help you decide if outsourcing is for you, you need to list down your business goals for doing so. What are your main objectives? Maybe it’s to save on costs, be more efficient in delivering projects to customers, or maximize your NetSuite investment, increase operational efficiency. No matter what it may be, determining your business goals help you stay focused and strategic.After determining the goals, you must communicate them properly with your chosen NetSuite talent service provider for alignment. It’s important that the service provider understands the way you do business and your goals so that they can strategize on how they can give better value to your operations.
The Service Provider
Another important thing to consider is the external service provider. There are a few factors you need to weigh when making a decision.Since you’re relying on them to match you with NetSuite experts, you need to know if they’re experienced in hiring and retaining these talents. Do they know the qualifications to look for and the current salary trends and expectations in the market? Check if they know how to manage their staff and the retention policies they implement.Data privacy and security is also an important concern. When employing a 3rd party, it’s only natural to share business data with the service provider. That’s why it’s important to talk with your provider about this. Lastly, consider the governance structure as well. Are all team members aligned with the right business goals? How do the leaders run the company?
The Expertise Available
Lastly and most importantly, you also need to consider the expertise you require for NetSuite. What are the skills and expertise available in the country where your service provider is located? Are the talents enough, or are there other skills that you should be looking into?For example, companies from around the world outsource NetSuite consultants to the Philippines because Filipinos are hardworking in nature and have a high English proficiency. The Philippines also has a notable Oracle NetSuite presence and also produces a highly-skilled IT workforce.
