The NetSuite WhatsApp Integration: Where ERP meets Instant Messaging

In a world where people are used to accessing everything at the click of a button, efficient communication can make or break a business. Your customers and prospects want to be able to access information as easily as possible, they don't want to have to jump through hoops trying get what they want. So organisations need to prioritise effective and efficient communication in order to succeed.

ERP has provided a starting point for effective communication, as you have one central place for all your information. You don't need to spend hours trying to find a certain report, or a prospects email, it's all there in a couple of clicks. However, we wanted to push this even further, and have developed a WhatsApp integration that will let NetSuite users quickly and seamlessly communicate with their customers and prospects. This blog post will dive into the features, benefits, and implementation of this innovative NetSuite integration

Understanding NetSuite and WhatsApp

Before we dive into the features, let's look at what makes these system so well suited. NetSuite, a cloud-based enterprise resource planning solution, offers an array of features to help businesses streamline their operations. This includes advanced financials, customer relationship management (CRM), Project Management, E-Commerce, supply chain management and more. It's one of the best of breed ERP's that is easy to integrate, easy to use, and easy to scale (check out out pricing guide for more information on the cost of NetSuite). However, it does not provide a native instant messaging platform within it's CRM, so it requires companies to rely on standard email and phone calls. 

WhatsApp is an instant messaging app used by over a BILLION people worldwide. It's free, easy to use, and allows people to connect with others across the world. By merging these two platforms, you can leverage the strengths of both: the robust business management framework of NetSuite and the universal connectivity of WhatsApp.
