Given the robust business environment today, a modern-day company can have sales orders that include a combination of products and/or services that must be fulfilled or delivered on schedules unique to that specific product or service. Whether equal revenue must be recognized in fixed intervals, or different amounts of revenue must be recognized at different intervals, NetSuite Advanced Revenue Management (ARM) has you covered!

Flexible revenue contracts, known in NetSuite as “Revenue Arrangements”, contain all of the information for the performance obligations (“Revenue Elements”) of a sales contract.
