Good question, compare it to a kitchen or a car, you only buy if you know the budget upfront.
Some like it rough
For starters, a B2B project should be tailored to the need of the customer, there is no out of box activation or minimal scenario. But to give you an idea and ballroom estimate, count on minimal € 50K. In a moment we will gladly explain you why, on average, you should take into account a budget varying from € 50K to € 150K.
This budget is only for NetSuite SuiteCommerce, not for NetSuite ERP.
Only the blind can see the truth
Our recommendation is not to stare blind on costs. The real question is not the cost, but the return on investment, what will it bring to your business?
The first reason to invest is mostly not growth, it’s about defending the current competitive position. Assuming what you have and how you do business now is a certainty for the future, then think again. This is “as is” thinking, to be avoided at all cost. Why? Think about what happened to Rome.
To discover an accurate budget
To be able to deliver an accurate statement of work and budget, explaining what we will do, you need a detailed analysis(insight) of the project scope.
The scope of this type of project needs to be discovered in-depth. We call this our discovery study in which we explore together and as result provide you the accurate SOW and budget( fixed price offer).
Many companies think that the scope is a B2B Commerce Portal or the need to have a B2B web store.
From a high level thinking perspective, this could be seen as the reality however it’s the result of the project.
What you really want, starts from the customer perspective and what the customer wants. And how you as B2B business can accommodate that!
Change is not important
Ask yourself, in 5 to 10 years, what is here to stay ?
Start from that perspective to define your change strategy and base it on our best practices. No stress, everything is changing all the time, that’s certain. The worst advice would be to proclaim agility on every change. Look ahead, and decide what you need to accomplish in 3 to 5 years and how you would like to do that based on simple best practices, not depending on digital tools.
