Challenges

  • Point6 experienced serious problems in its ability to efficiently access and report on data from Microsoft Dynamics GP.
  • Third-party IT consultants were frequently engaged to troubleshoot issues with the Microsoft application and implement workarounds.
  • Point6 needed a reliable, accessible system to eliminate high degrees of manual work and enable a focus on growing the business.

Solution

  • Selected over Intacct, NetSuite met Point6’s requirements for an integrated financials, CRM and inventory solution that could scale.
