NetSuite is a popular manufacturing software for small and mid-sized businesses as it eliminates the need to invest in any hardware, software or servers up front. Its subscription-based model is a major hit among businesses as it allows them to experience the advantages of an ERP system at a much lower cost as compared to on-premise solutions.
However, an increasing number of firms are now using Microsoft Dynamics GP as the ERP solution from Microsoft. They also offers subscription-based deployment along with a number of other benefits. Let us have a look at the top five benefits which makes Dynamics GP a better alternative to NetSuite.
1.Multiple options for deployment
With NetSuite, you only get a single deployment option which is its on-demand deployment. However, when a company grows, its ERP system requirements also grow. NetSuite with its single deployment option fails to scale up to the growing needs of a company. On the other hand, Dynamics GP manufacturing software offers multiple deployment options. You have the option to run the system on a monthly subscription basis, on-premise, or even a combination of both.
As per a report from Accounting Library, Dynamics GP can meet 84% of all the defined requirements while NetSuite can only meet only 52% of the requirements. Some of the applications in which Dynamics GP offers better functionality include Fixed Assets, Payroll, Multi-National Accounting, Budgeting, Manufacturing, and Project/Job Costing.
With Dynamics GP, you can create a design which works with the entire Microsoft Office System including Microsoft Word, Excel and outlook which the employees usually use for their day-to-day tasks. Even the interface and functionality of the Dynamics GP is similar to that of these products by Microsoft. As a result, the employees can easily adopt the new system without requiring any major training.
4.Increased number of customization tools
As NetSuite is a web-based solution, users do not get to control the data or the software. As a result, customizations like creating reports that aggregate information from several sources or changing the flow in which a process works can be time-consuming and expensive too. Dynamics GP offers much better customization tools for better integration and convenience without increasing the costs.
5.Excellent network of certified partners
Dynamics GP has 2,000+ certified partners all over the world for its implementation. On the other hand, NetSuite only has a few hundred vendors. Due to this, it is much easier to find an expert located close to your location that can help you with the implementation and working of the Dynamics GP system.
The easy deployment and configuration of Microsoft Dynamics GP along with its subscription-based model and other benefits make it a better ERP solution as compared to NetSuite. Companies that are confused between the two can search for a business management solution specialist to get a better idea about the ideal solution.
