How to do a NetSuite Implementation

At Big Bang, our experienced consultants kick-start the NetSuite implementation process with a comprehensive Business Process Review (BPR). During this initial implementation phase, key stakeholders such as project managers, executive sponsors, and developers from your organization are engaged in in-depth interviews to pinpoint the business requirements of each department. This foundational step ensures the implementation aligns seamlessly with your company’s objectives.

Upon completing the planning phase, we oversee the entire implementation process. Whether you prefer a hands-off implementation approach, allowing our Big Bang consultants to handle the complete implementation, or wish to collaborate with your in-house experts, we’ve got you covered. Our experienced implementation team ensures that every aspect of the implementation aligns with your organization’s goals and requirements. We provide the expertise needed to navigate the complexities of ERP implementation.

    NetSuite Implementation Steps

    At Big Bang, our 7-step proprietary methodology ensures successful cloud business transformation. It’s adaptable to your budget and timeline, embodying an agile mindset, dynamic scope, and stakeholder commitment, setting the standard for Cloud Solution delivery.

    Step 1: Kick-off

    The implementation phase starts with a stakeholder meeting, defining roles, objectives, scope, and success criteria. A robust communication plan ensures transparent and effective communication throughout all phases of implementation, while risk mitigation strategies are developed to handle potential project schedule disruptions.

    Step 2: Analyze

    During this phase, the internal team identifies gap analysis and thoroughly examines your business processes, requirements, and future goals. Certified cloud consultants gain a deep understanding of your operations and align them with the challenges to be addressed during implementation.

    Step 3: Design

    In the Design phase, the project team outlines the strategy for implementing reengineered business processes, deciding which processes can be adopted “out of the box” and which require expert customization or integration.

    Step 4: Build

    Critical to the process, the Build phase involves expert implementation consultants constructing and configuring your new system. This step ensures seamless alignment with your business needs, covering financial, language, shipping, and customer-facing requirements.

    Step 5: Validate

    We perform essential testing and thorough, rigorous validation to preserve system functionality and prevent potential problems. We offer comprehensive NetSuite training and testing to ensure a smooth transition.

    Step 6: Deploy

    With development complete, the deployment phase transforms your Cloud Solution from concept to reality. It involves configuration, customization, data migration, and an efficient transition plan to onboard your team and stakeholders.

    Step 7: Optimize

    After deployment, we seek Project Sign Off and gather feedback from your team. As a trusted NetSuite implementation partner, we provide ongoing post-implementation support, training, and optimization services, helping streamline processes and stimulate business growth.

    Oracle NetSuite Implementation Issues: Big Bang to the Rescue

    Customization is one of the most significant ways to get the most out of ERP systems. Workflows save time and reduce errors, but only if systems are connected and programmed correctly. Perhaps you had an internal team conduct a self implementation, and there was a turnover, leaving a gap in expertise or an unfinished implementation project. Big Bang consultants can jump in where the others left off to remediate an issue or rescue the project as a whole.

    bullet point

    We quickly re-validate from the beginning where decisions were made: Is the problem the partner, the product, the approach, a combination of issues, or something else?

    bullet point

    We have trained capacity ready to go like a 911 Emergency Service, skilled in expediting fixes to your implementation issues.

    bullet point

    We believe that a crisis is not an excuse to skip best practices because you’ll be no better off.

    bullet point

    Any good implementation needs great optimization, and that's why so many people come to us. In fact, Big Bang is proud that we have more support and rescue missions, meaning we have proven success fixing problems others couldn't.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    How long does an implementation take?
    How much does an implementation cost?
    What are my implementation options?

    A NetSuite implementation can take anywhere from 4 weeks to a couple of months to half a year, depending on the project’s scale. Accurate timelines are scoped out at the beginning of the project so that the business can accommodate, adapt, or expect accordingly. Our goal is to implement NetSuite as quickly as possible while managing the potential risks while changing systems and business processes. When a consulting firm takes too long to implement, the benefits are hard to achieve since the ROI (including time invested by your team) needs to be recouped.

    There is the base cost that depends on the size of the project. And adding on extra modules and third-party apps and connectors above the base will come at an additional cost. But often, this doesn’t have to come all at once. We can work with you to determine the priority level for all features and build a customized plan, including pricing, based on your IT strategy and growth goals.

    Perhaps you have only a very basic accounting system that does only fundamental transactions like bills, invoices, and financial statements, and you require a new ERP solution implementation. Or perhaps through recent years of growth, your ERP system has amounted to so many customizations and has become too robust and cumbersome to function optimally, and you require a rescue mission. As your implementation partner, we assess the best option that is unique to your needs, an ERP system that links your organization’s transactions from start to end. With NetSuite there is a SuiteSuccess option, which includes a prebuilt system leveraging industry best practices and can take your organization from zero to cloud, in 100 days or less.
