Implementation

Zone uses a proven methodology based on best practices gleaned from our vast experience in deploying the NetSuite solution to our customers.

As a NetSuite Solution Provider, Zone partners with your organization to drive the success of your NetSuite implementation.

  • Every customer receives their own dedicated project manager
  • Phased multi-stage approach with regularly scheduled status check-in meetings
  • A Project Plan that highlights priorities, contingencies, and a timeline.
  • Solutions that are customized to your processes and organization
  • Development of integrations that your business may need
  • Training for your users so that your transition to NetSuite goes as smooth as possible.

The breadth and depth of our business backgrounds, plus our experience across multiple verticals and deep technical knowledge of NetSuite make us uniquely qualified to help you get the most out of your NetSuite installation. Zone uses a phased approach that has greatly benefited our customers in their implementations. Composed of activities logically grouped into distinct stages, Zone’s implementation methodology supports the long-term success of the NetSuite deployment, making it easier to provide management and control during the lifecycle of a project. This staged approach has been designed to be flexible enough to allow specific requirements to be properly addressed and for methods and techniques to be selected and implemented as needed.

After meeting with your organizations stakeholders, we’ll work together to identify a list of projects and key areas of focus for your NetSuite instance. The intent of this list is to initiate discussion on possible enhancements that can be made to your NetSuite environment to help scale the business by speeding up data entry, removing inefficiencies, improving the user experience, increasing usability of metrics/reports/dashboards, and ensuring accuracy of data. Once we’ve had a chance to review Zone’s recommendations together, we’ll assign you a dedicated Project Manager and kick off your NetSuite Implementation.
