How To Start

If you have, or are considering using NetSuite then you have come to the right place. We are NetSuite SiteBuilder website set up and customization experts. You'll love using NetSuite to run your business, but that doesn't mean you have to learn how to set up and code the website. You're only going to do it once, so give that job to us. Give us a call. From USA call: 302.304.8404.

Decide to Use Wuebben Design

First is to decide to use us for your NetSuite web site. The information on this site will help you make an informed decision, however please feel free to give us a call to discuss your needs.

A few things set us apart:

  1. We KNOW NetSuite ...which means we can do practically anything for your web site.
  2. Everything we create is made to be easily maintained and updated.
  3. You are not expected or encouraged to sign a monthly maintenance agreement.
  4. All work is done in our France office by the same person you speak with on the phone.
  5. We supply screenshot videos to walk you through how to update the web site we build for you.
If you want the best, want to be in control of your site, want additional customizations... you'll want to get in our work queue.

Getting Into Our Work Queue

There are always a few companies lined up waiting for us to build their NetSuite web site. Getting into our work queue is simple: just call or email with your billing information.

The invoices come as a PDF via email. Call or email with the following information: Business Name, Contact Name and Title, Address, Contact Phone number and emails that you want the invoices sent to. You will be immediately penciled next in line in our work queue.

If we've yet to speak about your NetSuite project provide a time when best to connect so we can go over your project in detail.

We can help by doing the initial set-up for your internal NetSuite web site. We set-up NetSuite SiteBuilder themes, layouts and templates and can include our exclusive, in-house-developed and supported features or any desired customization.

Before We Start

Before we start the actual work a few things will be needed.

  1. Look and feel mock-ups: START NOW. If you are working with a graphic designer to create the look for your web site now would be the time to get them started. Our videos will help with ideas. What exactly we will need from them partially depends on the design of the site. If you can, get mock-ups for the following types of pages: Home page, Category List page, Item List page, Item Detail page and Information Items page. If you have a current site that we are moving over into NetSuite, mock-ups may not be necessary.
  2. If you are moving to NetSuite, get a test domain name and set it up for use in NetSuite.If you have a current web site domain name then it is best to reserve another name we can use for creating and testing the site. Go to GoDaddy and get something like www.MyCompanyDev.com. Then in the Total DNS set the CNAME for www to point to the domain name specified in your NetSuite account.

    Then in NetSuite go to the Web Site > Domains and create the needed domain. Set that test domain as the Primary Web Site URL. Now we can create and test the site, including setting URL Components. We'll 'tell' Google not to index this site until you are ready to go live.

    If you are having us work on an existing NetSuite website
  3. Keep us involved. Once your designer has started, it is a good idea to show us an initial mock-up or even have us meet with your designer. This way we can make sure everything is being covered.
  4. Set up all the Tabs and Categories in NetSuite. Don't forget to add content as needed AND turn on Descriptive URLs.
  5. Set up at least one of each type of item in NetSuite. If you are going to have 1000s of items and do not plan to have all the items in NetSuite before we start then at least have a few items set up. If you have different types of items that will need to have custom template work then create at least one of each type of item.
  6. Send us the final mock-ups. Once the mock-ups are done, in most cases we would like to get them as 100% quality JEPG images at the actual size of the web site. If there are image backgrounds then we'll also need copies of the same but without text. Ideally we'd also like to get the color values (in Hex, please) for all fonts, borders and colored boxes as well as the size and font-family of the fonts.
  7. Set up a NetSuite account for us to use. In most cases setting the account to Full Access or Administrator role will give us all we need to do anything you need. Contact us for the email address to use for the account access.

The default NetSuite templates provide you with the ability to get a web site up quickly but have limited customization possibilities. When it is time to move past these default NetSuite themes it is time to call Wuebben Design: customizing NetSuite websites since 2004!

Once we begin with your NetSuite coding

Once we start creating the code for the themes, layouts and templates things will start looking good quickly. It's a good idea to be available as things will come up that we'll need to discuss.

We will most likely be sending you screenshot videos to walk you through one thing or another that needs to be done. The video files are large so we use our dropbox account so you can download the videos to keep. You'll need VLC, QuickTime or iTunes (or similar) to play them back.

Eventually, we will go live with your actual domain name and the domain name changes done to your test site will need to happen to your real domain name. Since you've went through the process once before, going live with your real site will be easy.

*Responsive Cells: We create responsive item list cells completely differently than anyone else. The cells expand horizontally until an additional cell can be added. It is graceful and barely noticeable. Our cells also expand vertically, meaning you can have different amounts of information in each cell, yet ALL the cells in any given row are all the same height. Finally, our method encourages two cells per row on handhelds in portrait mode, instead of everyone else's single cell per row. Makes shopping easier. And best of all they still use normal NetSuite SiteBuilder templates and layouts. Check them out; our responsive item list cells are fantastic!

**Unique Filtering/Facets Our filters work on the item list or category list level. Items displayed can be filtered by any custom item field, or by price range. Unlike every other filtering system you've seen, our system updates content immediately, without additional server requests. Every category is maintained the standard NetSuite method you currently use: it's just now you have filters/facets. Totally responsive – working great on handhelds! All data stays internal to NetSuite so your business data is secure and under your control - always - with NO EXTRA MONTHLY FEES. (All the data is pre-rendered via daily scripts.) In handheld mode the filters display like a typical 'hamburger' navigation.

***Item Suggestion / Typeahead Search Immediately displayed dropdown of item suggestions or type-ahead search phrases on your normal NetSuite global search. NO EXTRA MONTHLY FEES.
