In every profession, there are some set of rules that professionals have to follow to perform and leave a lasting impression. Similar to every business, consulting services in IT domain also need to serve clients by following certain rules of the road. Would you as a client consider hiring someone who can miss out on the very first appointment secured for the project discussion? The answer most probably would be a no, since no one has got enough time and patience for unnecessary hassle. Similar to this, following are some do’s and don’ts that consultants must pay attention before going for a new project appointment.
Live up to small promises: Stand firm on your promises with your prospects, or maybe with everyone. This can cover being on time, etc. that applies to meetings, phone calls, deliverables and so on; for everyone expects constant communication in present-day world.
Make yourself easy to reach: When you are not available to your prospectives easily, it reduces your ability to close deal with anyone. You should include emails and contact information over every web page to not miss out on any business opportunities.
Say “Thank You” more often: Don’t take anything for granted, whether you received a new project or just got a return phone call and remember to say thank you sincerely.
Jumping to conclusions beforehand: It can turn off your prospective at the very start of the meeting because the clients don’t feel heard and understood. You may have experience of years and you may love to solve problems of the clients, but never try to emerge a smart consultant by simply providing a solution even before letting your client complete his part. Clients want to be heard and contribute to the discussions in a meaningful way. If the answer doesn’t fit the need of the client, it can result in rejection of your solutions and there’s a huge chance that the client is not going to hear about your other solutions further.
Using similar approach with every client: There are two ways to approach clients. Some people know how to sell benefits and some know how to make clients aware about the scary consequences of something. If you are proficient in both ways, you know how to best handle various clients by matching with their passive, assertive or aggressive personalities.
Don’t share a bad mood: We’re bound to have moments of anger, blue or frustration, but always remember that your client isn’t prepared for that.
With every know how of what to follow and what not to, to emerge pleasing but not cheesy; you now have the right power to attract your potential clients.

variances, analyzing options, and reforecasting accordingly-can dramatically improve execution.
NetSuite provide Budget Function under Advance Financial Module, but doesn’t not provide any Budget Control. System doesn’t restrict any transaction which are going beyond the Budgeted Amount, it’s sheer critical, isn’t it?. When Business pull “Budget Vs Actual” report, they are surprised that there are lots of gap between Budget Vs actual.
Once expense has been done then there is no option to take corrective action for the same. This issue reoccurs month to month, Location to Location and Head to head.
We at inoday have put strategical enormous hours to figure out the process and control which will restrict transaction line which are beyond the approved budget. Means user cannot book any liability which are not approved or beyond the budget.
Business enters the transaction with multi line level, system are only capable to highlight the line level which are not under or equal to the budget. So that user have only two way to encounter the restriction –
This restriction will indicate risk on line level and Transaction level. To understand your detailed requirement, you can reach us here.
A Blanket Purchase Order (also known as a standing purchase order) is an agreement arranged between an organization and a supplier to deliver goods or services at a predetermined price on a recurring basis for a specified time period (typically 1 year).
For example, if an organization determines that it submits 10 Purchase Orders per month to a particular vendor it can consolidate all these purchases into a single Blanket Purchase Order and issue 1 for the entire year, rather than 120 separate smaller Purchase Orders.
During Sales Order creation, a sale person could reference an existing purchase order that still had sales capacity available (PO which not fully consumed).
The key to make this work is to use dynamic variables on the sales order that would reveal themselves when the salesperson selected the “–- New -–” option on the Blanket PO drop down selector. The extra fields became visible and then could be used to collect validated information. This demands an advanced use case of the NetSuite SuiteScript toolset to create the intended behavior. The actual software pattern demands both server side UserEvent code to push down the dynamic variables and client side code to show / hide the form elements based on the change of the dropdown selector.
Blanket orders or call-off orders may also be used for ordering services, for example for maintenance and repair services. In these cases the benefits associated with stock-holding do not arise but the call-off order may allow emergency repairs or on-call maintenance to be arranged easily at guaranteed rates.
