An Employee User generating company data to export to NetSuite

Different Types of NetSuite Users

According to Forbes, when clients are asked to name their top-choice, cloud-based ERP solution, NetSuite is one of the first names to cross their minds. NetSuite offers holistic integration of sales, product, delivery, and other financial aspects of doing business. It changes the way you work as a company and delivers your services.

Let’s walk through the different user roles that NetSuite offers.

Employee Users

There are two different types of licenses available for employees in a particular organization:

  1. Full licenses
  2. Employee self-service licenses

A full-user license will grant users access to all the applications based on the company-authorized permissions and role-based security. This type of permit is generally assigned to functional team members that perform everyday tasks such as management roles, financial analysis, and inventory management.

On the other hand, an employee self-service is granted to employees who work on time-specific projects like expense reports, paid time off, and time tracking. Due to the specific nature of these licenses, they cost nearly 1/5th of the full user license.

Vendor User

Vendors can get access to NetSuite using the Vendor Center. Through this option, they can search, view, and print the purchase orders that they have to work on. They can also view any payment history and other details. Giving NetSuite access to the vendors as your business scales up comes with no additional financial burdens. Vendor access serves as a self-service system for the vendors and helps promote transparency and greater collaboration in vendor relationships.

Partner User

In NetSuite, the term ‘partner’ refers to third-party developers, administrators, and designers that help the company with any outsourced execution. NetSuite also allows you to assign customized roles for the partners. There are four partner programs under NetSuite to grant access to partners:

  1. Alliance Partner
  2. Solution Partner
  3. Commerce Agency Partner
  4. SuiteCloud Development Network

Customer User

NetSuite also allows you to assign one role to a customer, usually known as a Customer Center Role. This tool enables the customers to update their contact information, view their subscription and account details, navigate the knowledge base, and report any issues. Some versions may even allow the customers to finalize their transactions and make their payments.
