#1: Identify Best Communication Tools 

With many employees working remotely right now, you cannot just pop into someone’s office to request a status update or budget review. When starting a new project with NetSuite in 2020, you should identify early on what communication tools your team will use to interact and stay connected. For example, here at LatamReady, we are working efficiently and staying in constant communication by utilizing the following digital tools: 

  • — Organize and track project communication with this intuitive online workflow app. 
  • Google Meet — Easily host virtual video conferences to coordinate the most important project deliverables. 
  • Google Suites — Share documents via the cloud so multiple team members can access and contribute to the same assignment.

#2: Navigate Language Barriers 

Language barriers can easily lead to communication breakdowns and costly misunderstandings. That is why is it so important for international corporations with subsidiaries in multiple Latin American countries to work with a multilingual NetSuite partner. 

LatamReady is headquartered in Miami, Florida and maintains offices in Lima, Peru and Sao Paolo, Brazil. It is no surprise, then, that our diverse team is equally adept at working with decision-makers in the United States or Europe; local NetSuite users across Spanish-speaking Latin America; and local users in Brazil who speak Portuguese.

#3: Get in the (Time) Zone 

Another common challenge of rolling out NetSuite remotely is coordinating a team that may be spread across several different time zones. Sharing calendars can help coordinate the best times for virtual meetings when everyone is online — and awake! 

An even smarter strategy is to choose a NetSuite partner that operates in the same timezone as where the project is based. Having local offices in Peru and Brazil means that LatamReady’s team of experts is always available to field questions or handle issues that may arise for any project in Latin America.

#5: Select the Option that Fits Your Needs

Adaptability is key during this time of constant change. Instead of using a standard, one-size-fits-all approach in 2020, choose a solution that provides options to better meet your unique business needs. 

For example, many international corporations that need an E-invoicing solution in Latin America turn to the LatamReady SuiteApp. Our innovation app can produce accurately formatted E-invoices from inside of NetSuite with just a few clicks of a button! Just as important, this popular feature is available in 3 different versions: 

  • 1-by-1 — Generate and send one invoice at a time
  • Bulk — Generate and send up to 200 invoices at a time
  • Unlimited — Generate and send high volumes of E-invoices as needed

#6: Don’t Reinvent the Wheel: Connect with Local Experts 

The huge economic impact of the current global health crisis may lead to changes in tax laws in many countries around the world, including Latin America. By connecting with knowledgeable local experts, international corporations with multi-Latin operations can ensure they stay up to date with the latest tax regulations. 

At LatamReady, we have established strong ties to local players in Brazil, Mexico and more than 10 other Latin American countries. In Brazil, for example, we work closely with OOBJ, a recognized local E-invoicing supplier. OOBJ is a pioneer in the development of E-invoicing solutions in Brazil and even serves as the official E-invoice receiving system in several Brazilian states. 

Thanks to our strong partnership with an E-invoicing provider certified by and connected directly to the local tax agency, international companies using the LatamReady SuiteApp never have to worry about whether their E-invoices are accurately formatted and comply with any regulatory changes made in response to the current crisis.

#7: Harness the Power of Automation

During times like these, margins are tight and there is little room for error. That makes the tools LatamReady has developed all the more valuable for businesses who want to avoid costly fines for failing to achieve tax compliance. The LatamReady SuiteApp includes the following automation tools: 

  • LatamReady Initial Data Cleansing — Cleans initial data, including local tax compliance fields, before CSV files are imported during the implementation project.
