Integrating NetSuite with HubSpot forms a comprehensive system for managing the customer lifecycle.

This collaboration developed by CloudConnect Consulting leverages HubSpot for initial lead nurturing and qualification (Marketing Qualified Leads – MQLs), transitioning to NetSuite for advanced sales engagement (Sales Qualified Leads – SQLs), post-purchase CRM and advanced financial management. This strategy ensures a seamless flow from initial marketing efforts to sales engagement and long-term customer and financial management.

HubSpot: Lead Generation and Marketing Automation

Key Functionalities:

  • Marketing Qualified Leads (MQLs): Identifies and nurtures leads through marketing campaigns and engagement tracking.
  • Lead Transition: Transitions leads from MQLs to SQLs based on purchase intent or fulfillment of sales-ready criteria.
  • Analytics and Reporting: Provides insights into marketing effectiveness and lead readiness for sales engagement.

HubSpot serves as the initial platform for lead generation and nurturing until they are qualified for sales engagement, and then seamlessly transitions leads from MQLs to SQLs for direct sales interaction in NetSuite.

 NetSuite: Comprehensive CRM, Sales Engagement, and Financial Management


NetSuite: Comprehensive CRM, Sales Engagement, and Financial Management Key Functionalities: 1. Sales Qualified Leads (SQLs) and Opportunity Management: Manages the sales process for SQLs, tracking opportunities from initial engagement to deal closure. 2. Financial Management: Handles financial operations, including general ledger, accounts payable/receivable, and cash management. 3. Revenue Recognition and Billing Schedules: Manages revenue recognition and complex billing scenarios. 4. Project Management: Tracks project progress, resource allocation, and profitability. 5. Post-Purchase CRM: Once a customer makes a purchase, NetSuite becomes the CRM system of record, managing all subsequent customer interactions and history.

NetSuite takes over from HubSpot at the SQL stage, managing direct sales engagement, opportunity progression, and deal closure. Then post-purchase, NetSuite maintains comprehensive customer records, integrating sales data with financial and operational details.
