Small Companies Acting Big – 4 Big Growth Opportunities for Small Businesses
SMBs aren’t just the backbone of our economy, the fact is they’re also in a stronger position than many to react quickly to new growth opportunities. But we know that all too often technology can feel like more of a drawback than an accelerator. Hear Frost & Sullivan discuss the findings of new research from nearly 400 small businesses across APAC and identify the top four growth opportunities for small businesses including building closer relationships with customers, introducing new products and services, new sales channels and expanding overseas. Learn how Cloud computing provides small businesses with low-cost, flexible, and highly scalable IT solutions that support growth.
Is There a Difference: Accounting Software vs ERP
Cloud computing has brought to small businesses a dizzying array of business applications that were previously unaffordable or non-existent. The number of ways to extend accounting software is nearly limitless. However, business owners need to be very aware that just because it is possible to connect together multiple applications to support their operations, it may not be the most effective or efficient approach. In this session you will learn the hidden costs of working with multiple applications and discover the benefits of ERP for your small business.
Ask the Experts: Industry Leaders, Customers and Partners Discuss ERP
In this session you will hear the real world experiences of a range of experts in ERP.

This is your opportunity to ask the panel any question and receive an unbiased answer.
Big Companies Acting Small: Cloud in the Enterprise
Enterprise businesses are redefining the business landscape and enhancing customer experiences all round. A cloud-based platform like NetSuite provides the scalability and real-time visibility to stay ahead of the competition, allowing companies to focus on making bold decisions. But what about the finer details? When small businesses dream, they usually dream of becoming a bigger business. When you think about it, nearly every big business began as a small business. Nike’s first sale came from the trunk of a car. Dell shipped its first custom-built computer from a college dorm room. How can your business get bigger by acting smaller? Join this session to delve into the simple rules to follow.
Implementation: Hit the Ground Running Towards Transformative Business Results
As the pace of change in business accelerates, those relying on aged, on-premise ERP systems struggle to keep up while improving performance and customer satisfaction in an increasingly competitive environment. The ability to adapt and scale is critical. Join this session to learn how selecting the right implementation methodology can quickly improve efficiency across your business. See how NetSuite has incorporated best practices into a customer engagement methodology that helps the team incorporate processes and tools that ensure project success.
