Connectivity counts for a lot
Greentree doesn’t play nice with other applications or in modern markets. Its lack of open APIs means that any new business applications you want to connect with require you to invest in (and maintain) custom coding.
And if you don’t want to pay out for development time, you run the risk of data silos. So, the information you have spread around your business remains just that – widespread and disconnected.
Sure, you can download data and upload it elsewhere, but in the 2020s, and the drive for accessible data and real-time reporting, you’d expect better than that.
By comparison, NetSuite has taken a “productised” approach to application integration and extensions. It offers a technology platform that provides the tools to allow you, your partners, and developers to customise NetSuite to meet your specific business needs. Tools include SuiteScript, which allows new functions, processes, and entire applications to be built and hosted in NetSuite. And then there’s SuiteTalk, a Web Services integration tool that enables NetSuite to be integrated with legacy systems and third-party applications.
