What we do

In short we provide business solutions with software. Our solutions are built on NetSuite or Microsoft Dynamics platforms. We specialise in new system implementations and utilise our experienced development team to solve the business problems other ERP solution providers shy away from. We take a consultative approach from the beginning and work closely with your teams to ensure we really understand your business and can therefore implement a solution that really adds values to give you a competitive advantage.

In the NetSuite community, we are NetSuite Solution Providers, SuiteCloud Developer Network partners, and NetSuite Commerce Agency Program partners. We are proud to be invited onto NetSuite Partner Advisory board as we can add an international perspective to help shape the future direction of NetSuite’s development.

In the Microsoft Dynamics community, we are Silver Independent Software Vendors (ISV) and Silver ERP Partners. We have been developing and supporting Microsoft Dynamics GP for over 20 years. Our Microsoft Dynamics GP products are used worldwide.

Our Story

Nolan Business Solutions began in 1988 with just two developers writing code.

Fast forward 30 years and add 50 people to where we are now; a provider of NetSuite, Microsoft Dynamics GP & Microsoft Dynamics 365, with over 15 custom developed applications to suit those individual business needs. We certainly have come a long way.

We help solve business software problems with knowledge, expertise and care with intelligent solutions, giving your business the freedom to transform and grow.
