Why NetSuite SuiteCommerce for eCommerce Business?

NetSuite is the first to offer an eCommerce solution that integrates eCommerce with your business operations. It manages an eCommerce store's finances, inventory, pricing, payments, clients, taxes, billing, suppliers and back-office operations. NetSuite's eCommerce development platform, Suitecommerce, is one of the best eCommerce platforms. NetSuite is well aware of the challenges that any eCommerce provider can face. NetSuite has developed a solution that includes Cloud ERP as the back end and SuiteCommerce as an interface for every eCommerce business. 

What is Netsuite SuiteCommerce?

SuiteCommerce is a cloud-based eCommerce platform that enables Business to Business (B2B) and Business to Consumer(B2C) businesses to create engaging and relevant online experiences. SuiteCommerce allows businesses to shift from online and offline or in-store shopping to unified commercial solutions enhancing the inventory management, finance management and customer support of the company. 

• B2C and B2B Sites in One Platform: SuiteCommerce is a centralized platform that manages B2C and B2B eCommerce. B2B sites provide a customer experience similar to that of a B2C site, but with additional functionality tailored to business users' specific needs. Since one eCommerce platform supports both B2C and B2B platforms, it helps companies to build new mediums and business strategies at fewer investments and eliminates the maintenance of different networks. 

• Rich and Engaging Shopping Experience: Use a variety of features to help shoppers discover, learn about, and purchase your items, such as a picture gallery, product comparisons, navigation, advanced web search, social media and ratings and feedback. 

• Mobile: When accessed from any device, SuiteCommerce uses built-in responsive design reference models to automatically rescale and resize the site.

• Promotions: SuitePromotions is an intelligent and scalable approach for increasing online sales. To increase sales and enhance customer satisfaction, a variety of promotions are sponsored. Develop promotions that can be added to one or more distribution platforms quickly and easily. 

• Site Performance: SuiteCommerce is a fast and scalable platform since it uses a single domain for the entire shopping and checkout process, as well as a content delivery network (CDN) and a client-side single-page system. SuiteCommerce storefronts are quick to load, resulting in fewer bounces and more sales. 

• Modern Commerce Platform: SuiteCommerce is a multi-tenant cloud platform that provides SaaS (Software-as-a-Service). To provide a scalable platform for SuiteCommerce, NetSuite uses the new open-source third-party technologies, such as Backbone.js, Handlebars.js, and Sass. SuiteCommerce acts as an interactive layer on top of your NetSuite data, allowing you to send and receive data through services and APIs.
