TECHNOLOGY INNOVATORS JOIN NETSUITE CLOUD TO DELIVER NEXT-GENERATION COMMERCE APPLICATIONS
NetSuite SuiteCommerce Adds New SuiteApps to Enhance Customer Shopping Experience
IRCE 2013, CHICAGO, Ill.—June 5, 2013—NetSuite Inc. (NYSE: N), the industry's leading provider of cloud-based financials / ERP software suites, today announced the addition of several new partnerships and partner solutions from its growing ecosystem of ISV partners focused on helping NetSuite customers deliver industry leading omnichannel shopping experiences. Technology innovators, including SeeWhy, Silverpop, Zmags, Mashery, RingRevenue and Birst are leveraging or plan to leverage NetSuite's SuiteCloud Developer Network (SDN) to offer complimentary solutions for NetSuite SuiteCommerce—the cloud platform that unifies Ecommerce, point-of-sale (POS) and call centre channels with core business systems to deliver a superior customer experience across digital, mobile and physical touchpoints.
With a rich ecosystem of SuiteApp partner add-on applications, SuiteCommerce customers can deliver more robust shopping experiences on the SuiteCommerce platform that meet their unique business needs. The growing ecosystem of SuiteCommerce SuiteApps improves NetSuite's ability to support B2C and B2B merchants, manufacturers and distributors as they increasingly migrate sales, marketing and support to the cloud. Built upon a unified infrastructure that includes a state-of-the-art Webstore, SuiteCommerce customers can now access a single system to manage all transactions across multiple touchpoints, including websites, smartphones, tablets, social media, physical point-of-sale (POS) and call centres. Operating directly on the core NetSuite ERP/CRM business management application, SuiteCommerce is designed to address the limitations and complexity of first-generation, stand-alone commerce systems that are typically focused on only a single transaction channel. This allows merchants to streamline business processes, find new customers and strengthen existing relationships with richly interactive and intuitive shopping experiences and integrated marketing tools.
"NetSuite's partnerships with SuiteCommerce ISVs are designed to give merchants added flexibility and functional depth to transform cross-channel commerce and meet the many demands of the connected customer," said Raghu Gnanasekaran, Senior Director, Business Development, NetSuite. "Through the SuiteCloud Developer Network, SuiteCommerce users have a complete, unified environment to capitalise on tremendous commerce opportunities to drive revenue and enhance customer relationships on a global scale."
Some of the many NetSuite technology partners who are currently delivering, or planning to develop new SuiteApps to support and enrich the SuiteCommerce platform include:

"Shoppers are more discriminating and info-overloaded than ever, meaning that retail websites need to stand out from the crowd and offer a rich and interactive experience," said Scott Bleczinski, Zmags President.
