Explore Consulting's NetSuite Practice Overview

What We Do

Target Opportunities. Implement Solutions. Optimize Business.


Beginning with our initial sales call, our sales engineers get to know you and your business needs.


This is a bi-directional educational process. We learn more about your business while you learn more about NetSuite’s capabilities and best practices.


Our clients work with us in their NetSuite account early on. This builds familiarity and ensures configurations that match your expectations and needs.


Training and user adoption are managed based on client needs and include end-to-end confirmation of use cases developed during the discovery phase.


Our goal is to create self-sufficient clients. Our consultants are available to help with your ongoing business needs.

Why Partner with Explore Consulting for your ERP Implementation?

Since 2001, Explore Consulting has been helping businesses not only implement NetSuite, but learn how to make the most of their technology investment to power their businesses. Through this we’ve learned that adaptability to each business yields the best result and requires a team of highly experienced consultants. Our approach is unique because the team that works with you has the business and NetSuite experience (over 5 years NetSuite experience on average) to take implementation and NetSuite best practices and mould them to your specific need.

We are committed to helping you get the most from your NetSuite investment, whether you’re just getting started with an implementation or optimizing your current NetSuite configuration in response to changing business needs. Our considerable experience with small-to-medium sized businesses allows us to address the unique set of challenges companies this market segment faces. Simultaneously, our thorough knowledge and successful track record of implementing for enterprise organizations make us well-equipped to handle their demands and complexities.

How Do We Determine ERP Implementation Cost:

Let’s face it – we all want to know exactly what we’re going to spend to land safe and sound with a critically important ERP implementation. History shows that can be tricky business. However, through thousands of repetitions over our 15+ years, we’ve learned that one size does not fit all and how we should responsibly approach partnering with our customers for a long-term relationship where we don’t abandon you at go-live, and provide a true extension to your organization’s ongoing evolution. Following is an overview of what we consider.

During the Discovery and Requirement phase of your implementation, Explore Consulting begins the project with a meeting in order to understand your business. This includes current systems, project scope, key functionality required, preferred IT environment, budget and more crucially future growth plans.

The most intensive aspect of the project is with Configuration and User Acceptance Testing. This portion of your project is generally half to two-thirds of the overall cost. A few simple factors we use when estimating are the number and type of NetSuite modules, the number of system users, and your ability to define requirements during the sales process. Be prepared to invest the time to learn NetSuite early on. Instead of waiting to get our clients familiar with NetSuite, Explore Consulting works to educate our clients as we interactively work with you inside your account beginning in the early stages of your implementation.

Customization, Integration, and Data Migration are the next variables in factoring the budget of the project. The requirements and cost here vary greatly from one project to the next depending on complexity of your processes. NetSuite is designed to be highly configurable with little effort. When customization gaps are identified, we typically present three options: manual workaround (lowest cost or free), fully customized (most expensive), and semi-customized or middle ground. We aim to find the right balance of cost, timeline, and customization to fit your needs.

The final consideration for the cost for your implementation is training. Explore’s education-oriented approach is aimed at getting your stakeholders as knowledgeable and familiar with NetSuite as possible so they can help with configuration and solution design, train other users, and advocate for the system within your organization. It’s important to remember that training is an ongoing process, not a one-time activity.
