NetSuite or SAP?

Cofficient specialise in cloud based business software solutions.

We recognise the cost and time benefits of keeping your business cloud based.  We have partnered with Oracle NetSuite and with SAP Business By Design – the two most recognisable and successful software providers across the globe.  Both our solutions can be applied to businesses of any size.  SAP ByDesign is especially applicable to mid-sized businesses and subsidiaries of large organisations. Oracle NetSuite on the other hand, is particularly apt for dealing with the complexity of growth.   It works very well for small companies who have big growth ambitions or who want to future proof their business.  Both solutions have great capability for larger organisations.

What is ERP?

ERP stands for Enterprise Resource Planning. It is a “catch-all” term which describes powerful business software used to run all your departments.

ERP software usually includes sales (CRM) and finance software as a minimum but can also include: inventory management, fulfilment, e-commerce, project management and planning, manufacturing, supply chain management and logistics software. Some ERP software providers will offer all the functionality which is available on the software whilst others will provide a modular payment model where you pay for what you use. Typically you will buy named licenses which relate to a particular job role or function.

The benefit of buying ERP software is that you don’t need to connect disparate software together to get a complete view of your business performance. By using a single data source which is shared between all departments, you will be streamlining your business processes, removing duplication of effort or manual intervention and benefiting from a complete bird’s eye view of your business information. You will also be future-proofing your business since ERP software often has capability beyond what you are using at any given point in time. As your needs change you can change your use of the software without having to rip and replace with an alternative.

Interested in Finance?

Need a new financial software solution? Worried that Enterprise Software will be too big? There’s no need to exclude Enterprise Software from your search and select process. Oracle NetSuite and SAP offer Finance only versions of the ERP software. Now you can benefit from best of breed cloud software and replace your outmoded Sage system at a fraction of the cost of full ERP.

Interested in CRM?

Looking for a new CRM system? There’s no need to dismiss cloud based Enterprise systems like Oracle NetSuite. In fact, Oracle NetSuite rivals Salesforce.com, both in terms of price and functionality. A CRM only version of Oracle NetSuite is available at a fraction of the price of the full Enterprise edition; and, unlike Salesforce, you will benefit from a system which caters for your needs today, as well as those of tomorrow.
