What do you like best?

It provides incredible insight into customizations, users/roles, changes, and script performance. It also has automated tools to help with removing stale saved searches to help keep NetSuite clean. The change management is awesome and is highly configurable to help show what is important to you. Lastly, their support is awesome. The first response and time to resolution are incredibly quick. We've made enhancement requests to the product and some came out on the next StrongPoint update. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

When you pay for quality, you get quality. It's not cheap, but when you factor in the time savings and the value add to the organization, it pays for itself very quickly. Fortunately, there is a free version of this product (at the time of this writing). Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Install the trial and run the Entity-Relationship Diagram (ERD). You'll be amazed at how well it connects, indexes, and presents the customizations. StrongPoint also has a YouTube channel with really good content and how-to videos. Do your research first to see if it is a good fit. Also, if you decide to get the product, I highly recommend paying for the implementation/training support. It's worth every penny. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The problems we are solving are Change Management (the who, what, when, where, how questions), removing old roles that no one has used in months, removing old customizations that are no longer used, removing old saved searches that no one uses, and putting in controls with Change Requests to make sure we are compliant.

The benefit we realized is that we have so much more visibility to the environment. It's kinda like walking on a tarmac with limited visibility at an airport vs being in the control tower and seeing everything. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The Flashlight and Documentation & Optimization feature sets are fantastic for any size company that has even basic customizations. However, the effort saved to analyze the system and assess the impact of changes becomes huge in older and highly customized NetSuite accounts. For those needing formal change management and falling under SOX the Intelligent Change Management and Enterprise Compliance features provide a quick solutions to a key problems. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Not a fault of the product but implementing the change management and enterprise compliance processes can be challenging without the proper resources to implement and manage. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The biggest problem solved is the ability to quickly assess the impact of change or where a customization is used within the system. This saves a tremendous amount of time and allows the team to focus more on the real work and not chasing down unintended consequences in the system. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The control reports, which give us more visibility into our system. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

How long it takes to process and document all the change request changes. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you want a tool that will give you all the reports you need to manage your controls internally this is the software to get. It is very easy to use and helps a lot with customizations as well. The one thing I would want to add to it is a way to deploy development through strongpoint. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are solving the issue of ITGC controls and SOD. This has been very manual for us for a very long time and Strongpoint is going to help us streamline this process and give our auditors a much clear picture of our systems. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The changelog is comprehensive. It captures changes in the records that the native Netsuite audit trail could not. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The product is good but it must offer price flexibility in terms of deactivation of modules that we don't need at the moment. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Strongpoint offers a solution for IT risk, audit, and change management. However, before one implements, a solid policy must be in place. Without the policy, anything implemented in Strongpoint will not be solid as a rock. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Through Strongpoint, we were able to monitor all the activities in Netsuite. It also allows us to cleanup unused records in a very easy way. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Comprehensive approach to managing/maintaining ITGC controls, including the ability to track/document all changes being made to a SOX controlled system. SoD (Separation of Duties) ensures granular management of roles and permissions. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There are still some gaps in the controls in respect to the complexity of NetSuite (webservice integrations, for example). There also seems to be cases where changes are marked as non-compliant when they shouldn't be. The good thing is that Strongpoint is very receptive and responsive to reported issues. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As a public company we have to meet stringent audit requirements for any changes being made to the production system. Strongpoint helps to ensure that changes have been properly vetted and approved by management before being applied. This has helped to streamline the generation of evidence for audit requirements.

What do you like best?

Strongpoint's Flashlight tool have been absolutely life saving for me and my team on multiple NetSuite accounts with high levels of customization. We were trying to figure out a way to document our customizations: the tool we were using was expensive, and the whole system required manual entry and maintenance by Admins - which is time consuming and extremely error-prone. Flashlight does it all for you, and in a better way. Furthermore, they provide some simple tools and reports to help with other system optimization tasks. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I've had a few minor issues with updates. Granted they can be a little scary if you're relying on the system as heavily as I do. Just double-check things. Their support has also been EXCELLENT and those were resolved. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I'm pretty sure they offer a trial, so try it out! Install and "implementation" is literally a matter of clicks. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Customization documentation, data cleanup, SOP enforcement, performance optimization, license utilization.

Quality improving, time saving, team coordination, stress reducing, need I go on? Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

It facilitate the change management process for a team with large number of admin.

The change log are easy to categorize. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Some parts are both in financial controls and Change Management (for instance a change in cost center) will be captured by both modules.

Some fields are in [beta] and that makes it hard to rely on.

The JIRA integration is only available for change management and not the financial control part. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are making sure some sensitive part of our NetSuite instance is covered by a change request. This helps us to communicate with internal and external auditors on our change management compliance. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

When configured properly, the system works fairly smoothly and you do not detect it working in the background. The reports are easily understandable for SOX compliance purposes Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The set-up is especially tedious and time-consuming. In addition, the devil is in the details and if you do not set things up properly in the first place, then it will take forever to get it working properly. If you have a heavily customized environment, just getting the Spiders started can take a herculean effort Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Better to implement early in your NetSuite lifecycle than later - the less customizations at the start, the better. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Allows for audibility for SOX compliance with tracking system changes/customizations Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
