National construction equipment supplier Total Access has selected the NetSuite Cloud ERP solution to power its operations and provide a platform for future growth. The Auckland headquartered company has engaged Project Salsa for the supply, implementation, and support of the cloud software solution.
Total Access Financial Accountant Leigh Mills says NetSuite and Project Salsa were both selected based on track record. “Having implemented and used NetSuite before it is a familiar and capable solution suitable for our needs. One of the major advantages is its cloud-first design which makes all information available online with no server components or limits on where it is accessed from.”
Project Salsa, says Mills, was chosen as the preferred supplier based on a proven capacity for delivery. “With any enterprise software project, there are two essential metrics which go beyond the suitability of the software for the task at hand: on time and budget. Project Salsa has consistently proven its ability to meet these metrics.”
He says Total Access has reached a point where accounting software is becoming an impediment to the company’s operations. “Growth is outpacing the ability of simple accounting solutions to handle the complexity and scale of the business. In addition to looking for better control and visibility across our operations, the introduction of NetSuite will bring previously disparate and loosely integrated software into a single solution.”
This not only provides for better management but also sets the business up for further expansion. “NetSuite is particularly strong in this regard because it provides high-end ERP functionality which is scaled for a growing small to medium enterprise. And when we become a bigger business, it scales up with us.”
With a substantial part of its business involved in the hiring out of construction equipment, Project Salsa has sourced NetSuite Rental Management software from independent software vendor NetScore. NetScore’s solution is compliant under the Built for NetSuite ISV partner programme run by the vendor, says Wayne Potgieter, Project Salsa Sales Manager.
“Vendors with active ISV programmes like Built for NetSuite effectively extend the power and capability of their core software by tapping into the ingenuity and innovation of their partners. With NetScore, Total Access can manage all its business within a single, integrated solution. That’s directly in line with the company’s goals.”
That’s confirmed by Mills, who says there is a considerable advantage in a single source of the truth from customer contracts to invoicing without logging into different systems. “In due course, we’ll be moving our CRM into NetSuite, and also introducing a Built for NetSuite payroll solution.”
To date, Mills is satisfied with the progress of the implementation. “We are close to going live and the project has gone well with minimal interruption. There are things you need to figure out with every ERP project, but with the right partner, that’s just part of the job; Project Salsa has demonstrated an ability to think through the processes and put in the time and effort to get where we need to be.”
