NETSUITE EXTENDS RENEWFORCE IN AUSTRALASIA TO SAVE CUSTOMERS 50% OFF CURRENT SALESFORCE.COM PRICE
With RenewForce, Salesforce.com Customers Move From Standalone SFA to Feature-Rich CRM and Leading SaaS Suite for ERP, CRM and Ecommerce
Sydney, Australia — 28 January, 2009 — NetSuite (NYSE: N), a leading vendor of on-demand, integrated business management software suites for mid-market enterprises and divisions of large companies, today announced the extension of the NetSuite RenewForce program in Australia and New Zealand. RenewForce, originally launched in October 2008, is a special sales incentive program aimed at salesforce.com customers eager to realise greater value from their customer relationship management (CRM) investment, as well as relief from some of the industry's highest on-demand subscription fees. The successful program will stay in place through March 2009, giving salesforce.com customers now up for renewal the opportunity to move to the more robust NetSuite business management system.
The NetSuite RenewForce Program offers all salesforce.com customers the opportunity to drop their standalone sales force automation (SFA) offering from salesforce.com in exchange for NetSuite CRM+ at a cost NetSuite guarantees will be 50% off the value of their current salesforce.com implementation, including service and support.
NetSuite anticipates that salesforce.com customers will find a lot to like about the NetSuite RenewForce offer as they seek opportunities in this economic downturn to realise greater value across their operations. As an on-demand suite with built-in integration and business analytics, NetSuite offers substantially more value than the standalone salesforce.com SFA application and at substantially less cost. For more information about the NetSuite RenewForce program, please visit www.netsuite.com/renewforceau.
The NetSuite RenewForce program is available through March 31, 2009 to all current salesforce.com customers in good standing. The 50% discount will apply to a comparable license for NetSuite CRM+, including customer support and implementation services.
Johnny Jones, NetSuite vice president of international sales, based in Sydney said, "In this environment, reducing costs and increasing productivity are key, and applications like NetSuite CRM+ that include — but go well beyond — basic SFA functionally enable companies to do a lot more with a lot less."
Salesforce.com customers who take the NetSuite offer receive much more than just a 50% discount and a great product. They also receive important CRM functionality not found in salesforce.com, including the ability to:
- Create estimates or quotes
- Generate sales orders
- Manage multiple quotas and forecasts
- Automate support for cross-selling and up-selling
- Manage incentive management (commissions) within the system without using a third product
- Conduct integrated email marketing
- Pre-configure dashboards for business intelligence, and more.
