Working from the comfort of our homes has always been seen as a sought-after perk for many employees. But since the beginning of COVID-19, it has now become the reality in many working environments. Whether your team are working two, three, or even five days a week from home, you need to ensure that everything is in place for maximum productivity (especially anything technology related).
For many businesses operating in 2021 and beyond, their Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system is a crucial part in making sure all is running smoothly, from finance, through to sales, marketing, and HR. So, let’s explore the benefits of an ERP system such as NetSuite, and how it can help those looking to transition to a remote workforce.
1. Easily accessible with Cloud-based hosting
In this strange new world we live in, Cloud-hosted ERP is an invaluable partner to remote-working. It allows businesses to store all necessary information in one place, which can be accessed through secure logins from anywhere in the world – an extremely useful function in a remote working situation.
NetSuite was the first-ever enterprise Cloud software (back when they first launched in 1998) and 22 years later, the solution remains a market leader. Over 20,000 organisations use the platform globally, with Cloud-based users accessing the platform from anywhere, at any time. This allows for a more flexible approach to home working, and is even compatible with mobile devices.
2. Improved time management through built in dashboards and reminders
One of NetSuite’s biggest selling points for remote working is its built-in dashboards and reminders. By highlighting tasks that need to be completed (in list or calendar views), as well as report snapshots, KPI metrics, and many customisation options, users have everything they need to work productively, all in one centralised location.
3. Increased productivity with integrated platforms
In order to get the most from your ERP (and remote working) the right integrations are key. No company wants to waste time manually inputting data from one software to another. When you integrate with NetSuite, you allow the platform to do the manual work for you.
Integrating various systems with NetSuite, such as Salesforce and HubSpot, provides:
- Streamlined communication between departments and business tools
- Automated flow of data from one system to another
- Simplified access to real-time data with one NetSuite dashboard
- Plus lots more
All of which directly make working remotely a whole lot easier.
4. Faster implementations using SuiteSuccess

This leads to faster time to value, increased business efficiency, flexibility, and greater overall customer success.
