NetSuite Integration

The m3ter Integration for Netsuite enables you to quickly set up and implement highly configurable usage-based pricing models for your new or existing NetSuite service. You can then charge your customers based on what they use, instead of charging by subscription under a one-price-fits-all pricing model.

The NetSuite Integration is seamless, meaning you only need to ingest consumption usage data into m3ter in order to be able to bill via your regular NetSuite service. You can also start to exploit ingested usage data using other m3ter features, such as our analytics tools, and support other business operational use cases.

This topic provides an overview of the m3ter NetSuite Integration.

Sales to Invoicing: High-Level Integration Flow

The m3ter NetSuite Integration combines three data flows to achieve a seamless sales-to-invoicing implementation as a single, synchronized end-to-end data flow:

  1. Orders/Quotes through 3rd-party sales channels into m3ter Account and Account Plan.

  2. Usage data submitted and ingested into m3ter.

  3. Billing output from m3ter into NetSuite.

Data synchronization and flows between NetSuite and m3ter are established and maintained using webhooks.

Sales Flow: 3rd-Party Systems into m3ter

When a Customer and their Order/Quote are created in a 3rd-party sales channel, a webhook is triggered and captured by m3ter. This causes an Account and Account Plan to be created respectively in m3ter.

Usage Data Ingest for Metering

End customer usage data measures and events are submitted and ingested into m3ter via API calls or file uploads. See Submitting Usage Data and our Submit measurements API Reference documentation.

Billing Flow: m3ter into NetSuite

Bills in m3ter can be generated several times. A Bill can be sent to NetSuite without being approved. So, Bills can be updated throughout the month with the latest information then approved at the end.

Native Integration for Outbound Bills! You can set up a native integration directly in the Console for outbound bills to be sent through to your NetSuite system. See Configuring NetSuite Integrations for more details.
