The Top Ten Reasons to Choose Netsuite Over Quickbooks Online
For those of you not yet familiar with Netsuite or Quickbooks Online, you should know that at their core they are both cloud ERP platforms and with their frequently discounted pricing, QBOL might seem like a more viable option (Online Plus package is now going for $16.95 down from $34.95) – but that should tell you more about QBOL’s sales and satisfaction rate more than anything else. Where Netsuite and QBOL majorly differ is that one is a scalable complete accounting, inventory, CRM, and e-commerce cloud system with a simple user-interface and the other is primarily used for accounting purposes and offers complex bare-minimum options. After reviewing the top ten differences between Netsuite and QBOL, it’s kind of easy to see why so many more seem to be more pleased with the former.
- Quickbooks Online doesn’t include a dashboard, making user interaction more difficult and less visual. Netsuite on the other hand, has a dashboard, a tailorable interface, plus the option of role-based presentation. For a product demonstration to see exactly how this looks, click here.
- Netsuite has the ability to link with and support campaigns within teams while QBOL does not.
- There is no keyword marketing support within QBOL.
- Unfortunately, QBOL lacks any inventory management. That’s a shame really as so many require inventory management as a part of their ERP platform – particularly when those risk having lost, damaged, or unaccounted-for inventory. Netsuite is complete and offers inventory tracking and support.
- Quickbooks Online lacks a native CRM system. Many people nowadays want a one-stop-shop for both their ERP and CRM needs and understand the importance of integrating the two. Netsuite is that one-stop-shop.
- You need a third party integration program called AccountDynamics (extra $39/month) to synchronize between salesforce and QBOL.
- You cannot track purchase or sales orders within Quickbooks Online. In Netsuite, you can. D’oh!!
- QBOL doesn’t have change orders.
- Nor do they have work orders.
- And last, but certainly not least, the customer data you’ll find in Quickbooks Online is scarcely limited. While Netsuite gives you a ton of demographical and marketing info, QBOL only offers customer name and contact details.
