NetSuite Sandbox is the ultimate testing environment for your NetSuite ERP, built to help ensure customizations, updates, and integrations work smoothly before they go live.
||Avoid issues when you go LIVE with new developments.|
||Fix customization issues and troubleshoot freely in a replica of your production environment.|
||Train new employees on NetSuite best practices in a designated area.|
||Try out third-party integrations to ensure you won’t run into any bugs during Go-Live.|
What Makes NetSuite Sandbox Important?
Your NetSuite platform functions as a vast ecosystem of functions, integrations, and information databases – all in constant conversation to create a solid backbone for the flow of your business. However, as your business needs evolve, so does your system. For example, your ERP will require:
- Specific customizations based on expanding process requirements
- Third-party integrations as your company looks to expand functionality for growth
- Training for new employees that still need to get used to the system (you don’t want a trainee accidentally breaking functionality while learning)
- Update launch phases for new features and functionalities
Deploying any kind of change with bugs can be a very costly experience, as it’s not always easy to track down what’s broken in a live environment.
That’s where a Sandbox becomes crucial, to ensure that your core NetSuite platform can smoothly integrate with new features or customizations. It’s a consequence-free playground to test out all kinds of functionalities that will be key to running your software at its best potential. Rather than risk making any changes directly into the backbone of your business, where they might have adverse effects, you can get an idea of how they’ll work beforehand.
Before you unroll any changes onto your actual core ERP system, your IT team or NetSuite partner will spend time in the sandbox testing out your changes to see what kind of an impact they’ll have.
