Subject: Accounting System Migration: Great Plains to NetSuite
We are currently on Great Plains and have decided to move to NetSuite.
No one on my team (nor I) has/have ever been through an ERP implementation/accounting system data migration. However, several previous Auditors on my team are concerned about:
needing to ensure historical transaction-level detail (at least 2 years) is migrated over [NetSuite seems to feel this is overkill and will be painful, costly, and might ultimately not be completed by us (because we decide "juice isn't worth squeeze" during process)]
I am trying to make a decision about best direction, but feel I need some other data points. (Obviously I will also speak with our 3rd party Auditors, but) Does anyone have a perspective having gone through this - especially between these 2 systems? Love to talk about risks, challenges, and cost/benefit with someone who has lived it.
Hi Jason, are you still in need for someone to consult on the migration? Thanks
I'm sorry that I'm only seeing your post almost a year later. I have been through a NetSuite conversion-implementation (and I'm currently consulting on another). I'm curious to know what decisions you made (e.g., did you import prior transaction history or only historic balances?) and how it went/is going. If you'd like to chat, email me so we can coordinate a good time: firstname.lastname@example.org.
