Are you considering a Netsuite to Adobe Commerce (formerly Magento) integration and are curious about how to estimate the cost? Then you are in good company. NetSuite is one of the fastest growing ERP platforms for business, while Adobe Commerce is one of the most popular e-commerce platforms. Many of our clients have come to us with the question of integrating the two. NetSuite provides a default connection tool to handle the basics, but a full integration often goes further. Although the answer is always different and dependent on your organization’s unique business needs, there are several factors that influence the cost of your upcoming project.
One factor that influences the cost of your integration project is software licensing. Both Adobe Commerce and Netsuite require users to pay licensing fees. The exact cost of the fee depends on the size of your organization and its specific needs. For example, Adobe Commerce offers three different editions of their platform, each having a different licensing fee cost. The cost of Netsuite’s licensing fees depends on the size of your business, the number of users, and any add-on modules or customizations.
Integration Vendor Fees
Another factor to consider is the integration partner you select to help you implement your upcoming project. This price can vary greatly. The level of expertise brought to the table by the vendor, the complexity of the integration project, and any additional services provided, such as ongoing support, contribute to the overall cost. However, it is important to note that the best integration partners are transparent when it comes to pricing, and should have a record of successful integrations to share. Please see our post about Questions to ask an Integration Partner.
Customizations can also impact the total cost of your project. Every business is unique. While Adobe Commerce and NetSuite are both full featured, if your business requires custom features or functionality outside of those provided by the connector apps, these will add to the overall cost of the integration. For example, the creation of a client portal to view their past orders or pay invoices is a feature not included with a connector app. These kinds of customizations will increase the cost of the project.
Another factor that influences the cost of an integration is training. Introducing a new system is only helpful if your team knows how to use it. Many integration partners offer training to ensure that your team can effectively use the new integrated system. Be sure to ask for documentation from the trainer, to help future team members understand the integration.
The cost of ongoing maintenance also contributes to the overall cost of integration. After implementation, regular system updates, troubleshooting, and ongoing maintenance are needed to keep the integration running smoothly.
