Oracle NetSuite pricing

Oracle NetSuite is not just an ERP platform, but a revolution, which is empowering 40,000+ businesses across the globe, optimizing their operations and making them flexible, powerful and ROI-centric.


In layman's terms, Oracle NetSuite is a catalyst, which is transforming startups, enterprises, SMEs and organizations, and triggering unstoppable growth for them.


But how does the costing work for deploying Oracle NetSuite, and using it?


In this blog, we will give an overview of the pricing structure and model for Oracle NetSuite, but before that, let’s understand what SaaS is, and why it’s important to know about it.


Oracle NetSuite Is a SaaS-Based Platform: But What Is SaaS?


Oracle NetSuite is a Cloud-based ERP platform, which uses the SaaS model for distributing and licensing its software.


SaaS means Software As A Service model for software licensing and delivery model, in which software is licensed on a subscription basis, and is hosted in a centralized database.


The most striking part of SaaS model is its ‘ multi-tenant architecture’, wherein a single version of the software is used for all customers, with a single configuration of hardware, network, and operating system.


This means that there is no physical distribution or licensing of the software, and this forms the foundation for Oracle NetSuite licensing model.


Understanding Oracle NetSuite Licensing Model


The founding members of Oracle NetSuite developed a powerful Cloud-based ERP system with various modules such as finance & accounting, inventory, orders, procurement and more, and then hosted it on a centralized database.


This software or platform is then licensed to customers all across the world, via SaaS based licensing and distribution model.


If you are going to deploy Oracle NetSuite for your business, then the entire deployment, testing and customization-related activities can be performed via Cloud, without any physical distribution or deployment of the software.


Customers need to pay license fees, and initiate the implementation of the required modules on the Oracle NetSuite platform as per their business requirements. 


It’s that simple!


Oracle NetSuite License: Role-Based & Module Based


There are various subscription plans offered by Oracle NetSuite, which primarily have two types of licensing structures: Role based and Module based.


In the role-based licensing model, the pricing of the Oracle NetSuite license depends on the role of the user: It can be a full-access license for the top management personnel such as the CEO, Founder, CMO, CTO etc, with full access to the ERP platform.


It can also be Employee Center Access License, wherein the user is provided access to the ERP platform, based on their roles and responsibilities inside the organization.


In a module-based licensing structure, the organization pays for only those modules, which are being deployed for their organization. Since there are tons of modules covering different aspects of the business, an organization may only need a few modules at a time, hence, will pay only for those modules and not the complete suite of modules.
