In today's fast-paced business environment, remote collaboration across different departments is crucial for ensuring efficiency and achieving organisational goals.
CEOs are aware of this fact, with 78% of a surveyed group of 669 considering it crucial for long-term business success.
NetSuite, as a comprehensive cloud-based business management solution, is primed for remote collaboration, with access available from anywhere in the world.
But, what about stakeholders beyond this ecosystem?
Let's delve into the potential pitfalls of collaborating on NetSuite records with individuals who lack the flexibility to do so on the move, and then point you in the right direction.
Beyond the office...
Among full-time employees, 12.7% engage in remote work, whereas 28.2% adopt a hybrid model.
78% of a group of 669 CEOs say remote collaboration is a must for long-term business success.
Teams that communicate well at work could experience a 25% boost in productivity.
Remote trust trap
Enabling remote work hinges on trusting your team.
When collaborating with stakeholders on a major client, it's vital to have full visibility into their remote activities and hold them accountable when necessary.
Otherwise, there’s a risk that things may fall through the cracks due to miscommunication.
Chasing people for clarification or context may be slow, especially with multiple stakeholders working remotely, making it challenging to get timely responses.
Slow employee on-boarding
If yes, it's the main hub for employee data, especially during onboarding.
Throughout this process, HR professionals, the new employee, and their department manager communicates, share files, and e-signs documents to complete their part of the journey.
To avoid losing track and maintain accuracy, all activities must be logged in the employee's NetSuite record.
And without flexible, remote arrangements, the process can take longer due to logistical constraints, especially if certain people only have limited windows of opportunity to come into the office to sign any paperwork.
Supply chain surprises
Imagine you have a production team responsible for fulfilling custom orders for your clients.
The team relies on inventory management in NetSuite to keep track of raw materials and production schedules.
Now, during the production process, your team on the factory floor notices a critical issue with a specific raw material - perhaps a supplier has issued a recall, or there's a sudden shortage.
In such a situation, the ability to instantly update customer records becomes crucial.
Without real-time updates between the production team and the customer service department, who don't have NetSuite access, there's a risk of fulfilling orders with outdated information.
This could result in delivering products that do not meet the client's expectations or, even worse, using the wrong materials that could lead to product recalls.
