Spring Cleaning: FLODocs Freshens-up NetSuite With a Few Easy Tips
NetSuite is incredibly easy to customize. However, over time, customizations that used to add value can start to weigh your system down and can become complicated. Actively reviewing your account and cleaning up what isn’t needed on a regular basis can significantly reduce problems. FLODocs identifies customizations that have become unnecessary to make reviewing and cleaning your account easy and accurate.
There are many things that can be done to reduce problems and allow for a more effective and efficient NetSuite experience. The following are a few tips to keep your ERP system fresh, and FLODocs can help you apply these steps in NetSuite easily.
Unused Fields and Records
These fields and records complicate interfaces and future projects while slowing down accounts. Be sure to document what you are using for each process.
FLODocs can search for fields that are no longer in use and identify the dependencies that may need to be cleaned up. It can also provide tools to backup data when you delete unused objects.
These searches raise multiple versions of the truth and can further slowdown operational teams as they recreate and re-validate different views. Regularly purging searches that are no longer in use keeps the account fresh and easy to understand.
FLODocs has tools to archive the definitions of each search while deleting unneeded searches in bulk, provided there are no dependent scripts or workflows.
Bad practices can be resolved by setting up a process for reviewing new changes to ensure that they comply to best practices (i.e. good script IDs, help messages, descriptions, and current owners). These searches are standard in FLODocs, but can also be performed manually.
Processes should be tracked as the system changes. Updating work instructions and process documentation as the system changes is key to long term success. This is simplified in FLODocs using integrated process records so you can search for processes that have not been updated since the last customization change.
Implementing good maintenance practices and eliminating bad ones will ensure you are getting the most out of NetSuite, or any other ERP system. These helpful tips go a long way to break down the clutter that can quickly bring productivity to a screeching halt. FLODocs is dedicated to making ERP systems maintenance even easier, and that means saving you time and money.
