Manufacturing

Unify your manufacturing business to gain a real-time, 360-degree view

Manage your entire manufacturing business with a single integrated platform

Regardless of whether you are a true manufacturer, an assemble-to-order business or a distributor who has manufacturing requirements, NetSuite’s integrated system allows you to manage your entire business. It provides the control and visibility you need to compete more effectively within your marketplace.

Your business requires inventory management backed-up by dynamic replenishment.

It also needs:

  • Production planning
  • Warehouse management
  • Financial accounting and costing
  • Customer and partner relationship management
  • E-commerce

NetSuite includes specific capabilities which provide complete manufacturing business process support, spanning the entire production cycle. It gives you real-time visibility throughout your entire organisation, from sales, to operations, to invoicing.

As a manufacturer your revenues grow with each new market opportunity. By improving channel engagement, you nurture new relationships and accelerate your growth. A NetSuite solution from Catalyst, also cuts your Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) by reducing your IT infrastructure and speeding up your time to market.

It can be customised to your unique business needs, or integrated with existing applications and processes.

The business is much more efficient and month-end closes take half as long with NetSuite. Now with the addition of the WMS Go application, we have also seen a 75% reduction in stocktake time. We have worked with the Catalyst team for a number of years through our implementation and subsequently, via their Managed Service. Catalyst continues to go above and beyond to support what we need and have proved themselves to be a trusted partner and valuable extension of our team.

We had outgrown the Sage Line 50 solution and it became clear that we needed a more robust solution to take the business through the next five years of growth and beyond. We evaluated a number of solutions, including Sage 200 and SAP Business One, before settling on NetSuite. The guys at Catalyst very quickly got to grips with the complexities of our business and helped us to define our processes as well as configuring NetSuite to suit our current and future requirements. In particular, the bespoke handling of HMRC duty reporting through the purchase, manufacturing and sales processes will help enormously in meeting our reporting responsibilities. As the project progressed, other priorities in the business were in danger of delaying the project, but Catalyst committed additional resources and urged us to go-live before our peak Q4 trading period: the go-live went very well with minimal disruption and we were very quickly operating smoothly across all areas of the business. I have no hesitation in recommending Catalyst and NetSuite to fast-growing businesses in need of a future-proofed CRM/ERP solution.
