Introduction

The goal of this connector is to enable bi-directional communication between NetSuite’s system of record and Tulip’s Industrial Operations Platform. Many common manufacturing functions are provided out-of-the-box and advanced connectors allow extension to other applications. The accompanying applications show an example usage of this connector in a soap manufacturing facility.

Installation and Configuration

This connector requires an accompanying NetSuite SuiteApp to be deployed within NetSuite. Contact your Tulip Account Representative to schedule a time for this installation.

The connector functions have been designed with reusability in mind. As a result, to reconfigure the apps, only basic App Editor reworks are required. Replace existing content to reflect your shop floor more effectively, and the connectors will work the same.
