What's New in NetSuite 2021.2
In this post, we'll highlight some of the major new enhancements in NetSuite 2021.2.
NetSuite 2021.2 will be available to customers on a rolling basis between July through October 2021. You can also check out your Netsuite dashboard and the release portal to learn about your upgrade date, preview new features, and more.
Now let's jump into the details.
Payment Link Feature
With the new payment link feature in 2021.2, a payment link can be added to an invoice making it easier for customers to pay online via credit card, debit card, PayPal, or ACH payment. Bank payments are recorded and automatically matched to open invoices.
Automated Cash Application
With the new automated cash application function in Netsuite 2021.2, Netsuite matches the imported bank payments with open invoices. Also, once approved, GL payments are created and applied.
Consolidated Purchase Requisitions
Purchase requisitions across subsidiaries can now be consolidated for purchasing and billing. Receipt and payment in different subs will be cross-charged automatically.
In this enhancement, inventory can be automatically allocated to sales orders based on gross profit or revenue. Also, users will have a better understanding of how reallocations impact transactions.
Quick Ship a Pallet
Using a handheld device, workers can now quick ship a pallet. Using this feature, cartons can be added or removed from the pallet offering greater flexibility in packing multiple orders and optimizing shipping costs.
In this enhancement, Netsuite users can generate automatic lot numbers to reduce manual work. They can also add custom fields for additional lot information.
Automatic 401K Calculations
In Netsuite 2021.2, new rules-based formulas can be entered to automatically determine employer match amounts when the employee match amount is changed.
Age Match Calculation
When employees over 50 opt to make an annual catch-up amount contribution, NetSuite uses IRS rules to calculate contributions for many types of retirement plans in this enhancement.
