Derek Singleton of Manufacturing Software Advice recently published a shortlist on cloud-based ERP solutions, specifically for manufacturers. NetSuite, one of the five featured products, offers a variety of functionalities and is clear choice for businesses looking for a SaaS solution. It is a great choice for companies that are looking to expand as it is applicable for companies ranging in size from 25 to 1000 employees. The article looks at four main criteria; size of client's business, manufacturing support modes, variety of industries served and the breadth of applications.
"In June of 2010, [NetSuite] launched their first full-suite manufacturing offering to target mid-market manufacturers. As a pure SaaS company, NetSuite’s manufacturing clients all operate in the cloud. NetSuite currently supports multiple sites, multiple languages and currencies. In future releases, they plan to expand upon this functionality and target more complex manufacturing industries."
