NetSuite uses a proven methodology based on best practices gleaned from vast experience in deploying the NetSuite solution to our customers. Called NetSuite One, this formal methodology is a phased approach. The methods deployed are those that have most greatly benefited thousands of customers in their implementations.

NetSuite One is composed of activities logically grouped into seven distinct stages, which support the long-term success of the NetSuite deployment, making it easier to provide management and control during the lifecycle of a project.

Not all projects, or professional service engagements, will always use all stages and complete all the activities outlined in this methodology. This staged approach has been designed to be flexible enough to allow specific requirements to be properly addressed and for methods and techniques to be selected and implemented as needed.

This methodology is used in the various implementation options offered by SuiteConsulting.
