NetSuite Analytics - SuiteAnalytics connect service (NetSuite2) provides real-time Saved Searches, Reporting, Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) Dashboard and Workbook features that are built into the NetSuite solution.

NetSuite Reporting - SuiteTalk Service gives you the ability to construct NetSuite business objects in any programming language or platform that supports the SOAP standard, such as Java or Microsoft.NET.

NetSuite RESTlets - SuiteScript service is a JavaScript-based NetSuite platform that allows for total customization and automation of business processes. Scripts that are performed at pre-defined events can access and modify fundamental business records and user information using the SuiteScript APIs.
