If your business uses a variety of different time tracking, resource planning, project management, and collaboration tools that may or may not speak to each other, it’s probably struggling with some inefficiencies.

Instead of running on an on-premises network, a cloud-based enterprise resource planning (ERP) system runs on a vendor’s cloud platform and uses a single data source across various modules. This allows organizations to access a fully integrated system from anywhere using a simple internet connection and browser. One of the most popular ERP system options is NetSuite OpenAir.

What is NetSuite OpenAir?

NetSuite OpenAir is a professional services automation (PSA) solution that helps organizations increase resource utilization, improve on-time project delivery, and boost margins. A product of the Oracle Corporation, this solution helps organizations add value by maximizing resources.

NetSuite OpenAir helps businesses maximize revenue by analyzing all open and potential projects in the system and creating different scenarios to make the best use of available resources.
