Integrate data for real-time resource and financial visibility

What Is NetSuite OpenAir Connect?

NetSuite OpenAir Connect provides a set of tools to manage integrations with customer relationship management (CRM), human resources (HR), financial, enterprise resource planning (ERP), and other systems. Available as an addition to NetSuite OpenAir, OpenAir Connect ensures that you get all the benefits of the cloud without sacrificing your existing technology investments and business processes.

Integrate Data

Easily share data between OpenAir and a variety of business applications — without error-prone manual data entry.

We're certainly more efficient with NetSuite, but more importantly we have a single integrated system that supports our rapid growth and strategic direction.

Automatic Backup Service

With the Automatic Data and Backup Service (ABS) workspace in OpenAir, automatically extract files from your OpenAir account and store them wherever you wish. After backing up data, archive or delete old files and attachments in your OpenAir account. This not only frees up storage space within OpenAir, it makes exported data available for external analysis and reporting.

Challenges NetSuite OpenAir Connect Solves

  • Independent Systems. OpenAir Connect enables data to be shared seamlessly among CRM, ERP, ECM, BI, and other systems. Gain real-time insights without the need to upload the same data in multiple locations.
  • Poor Organizational Visibility. See exactly how individual projects and your overall business are performing using data that is shared across solutions. Take control of the project lifecycle from bid to bill with connected CRM, ERP, and PSA systems.
  • Deficient Reporting Functionality. Run reports in OpenAir to deliver a full view of project health. Connect to preferred third-party (BI) tools with OData or NetSuite APIs for further reporting and analysis of project and business performance.
