The Ultimate Guide To NetSuite Add-On Modules & Where To Find Them

by Campbell McLeish on

There’s a reason more than 22,000 customers use NetSuite across the world. It’s scalable, agile, and delivers highly customisable functionalities to support your individual business needs.

Beyond its standard functionality, NetSuite allows for further personalisation with NetSuite add-on modules. These are offered in bundles specific to your industry and can be licensed at any time during your NetSuite contract. But what modules are available? And what do they mean for your business? We explore just that below.

What are NetSuite add-on modules?

First of all, it’s important to note that “NetSuite Add-On modules” is a term used for marketing purposes only. Modules and add-ons are actually separate and refer to different functions in the system.

Although these refer to different functions, they complement each other hugely.

A module is a complete system on its own, it has different records and functionality. While Add-ons are native to NetSuite and provide a given feature you can activate at any given time. Think about it this way: add-ons are used to enhance any module you already have inside NetSuite.

With that out of the way, let’s explore popular NetSuite modules that your business could be missing out on.
