Understanding the cost of Netsuite

Oracle NetSuite is a widely-used and popular cloud-based software as a service (SaaS) ERP. NetSuite has over 37,000 customers worldwide. Companies across various industries use NetSuite ERP to efficiently manage core business processes on a single, streamlined platform. With its integration and automation capabilities, NetSuite saves businesses time and money — making it an investment worth considering.

If your company is considering NetSuite ERP, one of the first steps is determining its cost and whether it fits your organization’s budget. 

How Much Does NetSuite Cost?

The cost of NetSuite ERP varies depending on factors such as the size of your company or industry, which can impact the functionality required, the number of users and transaction volume. Whether it is an on-premise or cloud-based system, ERP implementation can carry heavy costs. Cloud-based services tend to cost less than on-premise solutions.

NetSuite operates on a subscription-based pricing model, which means that companies pay an annual fee to use the software. This is different from traditional on-premise ERP systems, which require high upfront costs to set up equipment such as servers, routers, backup power and cooling systems. On-premise ERP systems also often require companies to pay for a perpetual license to use the software, along with ongoing costs for annual maintenance fees and administering server software and hardware.

If you have questions about NetSuite pricing and licensing, we provide transparent pricing and can answer your questions as a trusted NetSuite Solution Provider.

SaaS applications such as Oracle NetSuite ERP eliminate the need for servers and server infrastructure. As a result, upfront and ongoing maintenance costs are much lower than traditional on-premise ERP systems. SaaS applications also provide a more flexible model that can scale with your business needs.

Buying Tips

  1. Only buy what you need when you need it – not “nice to haves”.
  2. Work with a partner who understands your industry.
  3. Don’t buy more users than you need. During implementation you don’t need a lot of users. You can add more users at any time.
  4. Leverage limited access licenses where you can.
  5. NetSuite isn’t good at ALL things so work with a partner you can TRUST and is experienced in both NetSuite and 3rd party solutions.

Collaborating with a partner like Luxent allows a thorough understanding of your business needs and pain points, facilitating the creation of a tailored solution perfectly aligned with your business objectives.

What Affects the Cost of a NetSuite Implementation?

The cost to implement NetSuite varies depending on several key factors, such as:


The breadth of NetSuite capabilities is numerous, many of which come out of the box with the core software package. The number of functional areas you are implementing will affect the price of the implementation.

At Luxent, we recommend keeping the scope in phase one small. A narrower scope allows your company enough time to manage the change associated with a new ERP, build user confidence and immediately start realizing return on investment. Having more assured users will make subsequent phases easier and less expensive. Introducing automation in the areas that replace other technology and reduce manual processes are good places to start with NetSuite but come at an additional cost and impact the timeline for going live.


The complexity of your business processes and the nature of your business can influence implementation costs. For instance, an organization that purely sells services versus an organization that manages lot-tracked inventory with FDA compliance requirements has different levels of complexity.
Even within inventory-based organizations, the number of products your business manages, whether it manufactures its own product or purely distributes and whether your business manages its own inventory versus having third-party-managed inventory all have varying levels of complexity. The more complexity, the higher the cost for implementation.


Tailoring NetSuite to meet specific business needs through customizations can contribute to costs. The more customization required, the higher the implementation expenses. Following our leading practices and approaches will help eliminate the need for costly customizations.


If your business requires integration of NetSuite with other third-party applications or existing systems within your organization, additional costs may arise. Complex integrations often demand more time and resources.


Training your staff on how to use NetSuite effectively is a crucial aspect of implementation. The right approach to training is not always a one-size-fits-all solution for all businesses. The cost of training and ongoing support services should be factored into the overall implementation budget.

As your NetSuite implementation partner, we can help you determine the right training approach that works for your business with the most cost-effective solutions.


The choice of implementation partner or vendor can impact costs. Some vendors may charge higher fees based on their experience, expertise and industry specialization.


Moving existing data into NetSuite can be a time-consuming process, especially if your data requires cleansing or transformation. The complexity of data migration tasks can influence costs.

Working with a vendor who has experience within your industry is important and will reduce your implementation costs as well as ensure a smoother and more tailored deployment. Industry-specific expertise allows the vendor to understand the unique challenges and requirements of your business, facilitating a more efficient implementation and more effective use of your resources.

Additionally, a knowledgeable vendor can provide valuable insights and best practices, optimizing the configuration of NetSuite to align seamlessly with your business objectives. Beyond cost savings, this collaboration enhances the overall success of NetSuite implementation, fostering a productive and user-friendly system that can adapt to evolving business needs.

It is crucial to establish clear communication and expectations with the chosen vendor, fostering a collaborative partnership that extends beyond the implementation phase and contributing to the long-term success of your NetSuite solution.

How to Budget for NetSuite

To create a NetSuite budget, you’ll need to determine how many user licenses you’ll need, whether you need add-on modules or customizations and who you’ll select to implement NetSuite. You’ll also need to consider ongoing subscription fees, user license fees, user training and customization and integration maintenance. Your NetSuite implementation partner can help you calculate monthly, quarterly and annual NetSuite costs so you can create a budget plan accordingly.

NetSuite Buying Tips

The following tips can help with a successful implementation that fits into your organization’s budget:

  1. Only buy what you need when you need it — not “nice to haves.”
  2. Work with a partner who understands your industry.
  3. Don’t buy more users than you need because you can add more users at any time.
  4. Leverage limited access licenses where you can.
  5. Work with a NetSuite implementation partner you can TRUST with experience in both NetSuite and 3rd party solutions.
