Downfalls of NetSuite OneWorld

Financial localization outside of largest countries

1. Countries requiring localization development services:
NetSuite is certified to meeting local financial norms across large markets such as the USA, UK and Australia. Countries within Europe, Africa and Asia are not yet all covered by the system. Companies operating on these continents may require additional help from  NetSuite partners in order to manage their tax declarations or year end reports.  

Lack of international service groups

1. OneWorld implementation across continents lacks implementation expertise:
NetSuite requires multiple resources to successfully deliver the project and ensure user adoption. NetSuite consultants are mainly found on NetSuite’s territories, namely in the USA, the UK and Australia. Most of these consultants have little to no knowledge of EU/ Asian/ African norms and will put the implentation and use of the system at risk.
