When you can see financial data inside Salesforce, this provides sales teams with a full picture

of customer relationships and enables sales team members to make data-backed decisions.

With access to the right solution, connecting NetSuite and Salesforce is a walk in the park.

NetSuite Salesforce integration – a match made in heaven

To optimize and streamline your workflows, the NetSuite Salesforce integration is unavoidable.

When NetSuite’s ERP solution is paired with Salesforce’s CRM, this can promote efficiency and

scalability across your organization. These two solutions are unarguably better together – and

with the support of the right integration, you can unify your workflows and drive efficiency.

Sales teams can access financial data natively in Salesforce

For instance, sales teams can use financial data in Salesforce to make informed decisions

about a customer’s payment status. Without access to a NetSuite Salesforce integration,

financial data is unavailable in Salesforce. To source the data, sales teams would need to

contact finance teams. This back-and-forth cross-team communication creates bottlenecks.

Are iPaaS platforms the way forward?

Many iPaaS (Integration Platform as a Service) platforms offer dozens of useful integrations – for applications you know and love – inside a single solution. iPaaS platforms enable the

development, execution, and governance of integration flows connecting cloud-based

processes. Even though iPaaS platforms sound efficient, there are some downsides.

iPaaS platforms require an upfront investment

An all-encompassing iPaaS platform powering cloud-based connectors often takes considerable time and effort to set up. iPaaS platforms rarely present an immediate solution to your workflow integration problems. Alongside rolling subscription costs, iPaaS platforms typically require an upfront investment. The configuration process to get things up and running is also far from easy.

Should you use APIs and a RESTlet web service?

Using the APIs for Salesforce and NetSuite, you could build your own connection between the

two platforms with a RESTlet web service. As your developers would need to write the code for

this connector solution, they could fine-tune the code to build out the connection to meet your

specific needs. This means you have total freedom and flexibility over customizations.

Building the connection is far from straightforward

Manually attempting to integrate Salesforce and NetSuite is far from easy. Navigating through

the APIs is complex and will require an upfront investment. Due to the sensitivity of the financial

data, the developers will have to carefully and thoroughly test the integration before use. The

developers will also have to frequently update the connector as the two platforms evolve.

Teams cannot immediately start unlocking value

If you are willing to dedicate considerable time to writing and rewriting code, using the APIs with

a RESTlet web service, this is the route for you. Although, setting aside time to build this

solution is largely counterintuitive as it only exacerbates the broader problem you are trying to

solve. This is why many teams turn to Breadwinner for a connector that works out-of-the-box.
