Where can I purchase a NetSuite License?

You have two different options when it comes to purchasing your software: NetSuite direct or through a NetSuite Solution Provider. Solution Providers are business application experts who deliver complete NetSuite cloud computing solutions and can sell, license, implement, service, and provide support for all things NetSuite-related. The license and subscription contract is with NetSuite but negotiated by the partner and they represent you.


What Are My Implementation Options?

1. Self-Implementation:

To ensure a successful self-implementation, a person in your organization will need to be well-versed with NetSuite’s technology and provide a temporary full-time commitment to the implementation process. In many ways, a self-implementation may take longer than expected and cost your company more money as project timelines and commitments tend to run long without a team. Many companies will also need customizations to the software, help, support, and training to ensure your NetSuite implementation reflects your company’s business processes.


2. NetSuite (Direct) Implementation:

When you purchase with NetSuite Direct, you’re speaking to an Oracle NetSuite salesperson from their corporation. Working with a partner is the same price as direct, and you will be working with a smaller company with a consistent team. 


3. NetSuite Partner:

Quality NetSuite partners have your long-term plan and business strategy in mind from the get-go. Partners don’t just sell software, they are passionate about understanding your company’s processes and committed to your success and reputation long after the go-live date. You will receive a direct line to skilled IT consultants for NetSuite support, with the ability to ask for help, and discuss best practices, buying options, pricing, products and more. NetSuite Partners are leading industry experts who possess a deep understanding of the software and the knowledge and skills to best tailor the NetSuite implementation to your individual needs.


Why Partners Make a NetSuite Implementation a Success


Customer Relationships

Customers who buy from NetSuite partners are in it for the long haul. Why? Because NetSuite partners know your business, provide strength in relationships, and supply the highest level of customer service and support in the industry.


NetSuite Expertise & Support

Partners are extremely knowledgeable on the NetSuite platform and can provide unbiased answers to questions, demos, and any information you need throughout the process. Once you have engaged with a partner, the entire team is accessible to you on an on-demand basis. Take advantage of all that NetSuite has to offer with no disruption in your day-to-day business. From implementation to services and beyond, partners ensure a streamlined and direct path to fulfilling your NetSuite needs.


Cost Savings

NetSuite Partners can match NetSuite’s direct sales team with pricing, discounts, fixed-price quotations, and financing options that are not available when buying from NetSuite directly. Partners offer competitive pricing on both software and services. Bundle your licensing and implementation services for better savings on a successfully delivered solution. 


Tailored Implementations

Partners will provide the tools necessary for you to make well-educated choices rather than rushed decisions. Consultants adapt the NetSuite product to meet your specific business requirements. Working with a NetSuite partner offers key advantages over going directly to NetSuite alone.
