Social Data Systems has deep experience addressing the unique needs of small to medium businesses, including nonprofits and social enterprises, operating in multiple industries around the world. We offer a host of customized solutions that provide additional benefit to our customers and extend the functionality of the NetSuite platform.

General Business

Social Data Systems works with a variety of companies operating in a wide range of sectors. We specialize in working with small to medium-sized companies with limited budgets but who need better software than their competitors have. Our experience is specifically in:

  • Inventory management
  • Warehousing
  • Manufacturing
  • Logistics
  • Retail
  • Ecommerce
  • Services

Custom Point-of-Sale

Our NetSuite Point-of-Sale solution gives organizations the ability to sell product in their retail stores or at workshops and events. The solution runs on any Windows-based laptop or Surface, and includes a product scanner, cash drawer and thermal printer. The system uses all the native NetSuite features, forms and credit card processing capabilities.

Shopify Integration

If your company has an existing webstore on the Shopify platform or is considering a Shopify store, Social Data Systems can help integrate it with your NetSuite account. Using a low-cost, third-party connector, we’ll connect your ecommerce platform with NetSuite to:

  • Add new customers
  • Synchronize existing customers
  • Synchronize orders, fulfillment, credits and payment
  • Integrate inventory management

Square Integration

If your company uses Square to process transactions, Social Data Systems can integrate it with your NetSuite account. When transactions occur in Square, the following records can be added or updated:

  • Customers
  • Transactions
  • Orders, fulfillment, credits and payment
  • Inventory


We have deep experience providing specialized services tailored to the unique needs of nonprofit organizations, large and small.

Gift History

The single most important benefit most nonprofits are looking for, leading them straight to NetSuite, is the ability to migrate both their financial system and their fund raising systems, into a single database, eliminating the need for double-entry and minimizing the potential for reporting errors.  Social Data Systems can work with your development team to migrate decades of giving history from virtually any legacy system into NetSuite, and provide the same level of reporting capabilities the previous systems offered and more.

Social Data Systems has migrated donors and gift history for organizations using:

  • Salesforce
  • Blackbaud (all)
  • Raiser’s Edge
  • eTapestry
  • GiftWorks
  • DonorPerfect

Child Sponsorship

Using the NetSuite ecommerce platform, SDS builds child-sponsorship systems that enable sponsors and donors to easily identify the children, projects and funds to sponsor, based on varying criteria such as location, gender, age and others. Visit Forgotten Children or Sheltering Wings for examples and to sponsor a child.


Social Data Systems’ Donation Page integrates directly with your NetSuite account. When a donor makes a donation or submits sponsorship, their Donor record and the transaction are both immediately recorded in the NetSuite account. The credit card is charged and the acknowledgement sent. No separate system, login, export or entry is needed.


Our Online Event Registration system enables organizations to take event registrations online, process credit cards and receive notifications when registrations have occurred, all within NetSuite. The system is used by organizations whose customers and clients need to register for training classes, workshops and other types of events. See World Forum Foundation as an example.
