NETSUITE BRINGS FIRST CLOUD COMPUTING ERP SUITE TO THE IPHONE
NetSuite Dashboards, Sales Order Records, Customer Records, and Click-to-Call a Finger-Tap Away on iPhone and iPod touch
SAN MATEO, Calif. — September 24, 2009 —NetSuite Inc. (NYSE: N), a leading vendor of cloud computing business management software suites, today announced that it has brought the first cloud computing mobile ERP suite to Apple's (Nasdaq: APPL) iPhone and iPod touch. NetSuite for iPhone and iPod touch is available now for free on the App Store at http://www.itunes.com/appstore/. NetSuite already had more than 1,000 downloads on the App Store in the first two weeks after it was available. The app delivers on-the-go access to NetSuite's integrated business management suite, including real-time Dashboards that deliver key Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), Customer Relationship Management (CRM), and Ecommerce operational data. For more information, please visit www.netsuite.com/iphone.
Thousands of companies use NetSuite to manage their key business processes, leveraging its Software as a Service (SaaS) design to access invoicing, customer records, inventory, and financial reporting from any Internet-enabled computer. Now, for the first time, iPhone and iPod touch users can access NetSuite functionality using a rich interface designed to run natively on iPhone and iPod touch, adding to the anytime, anywhere features already offered by NetSuite's cloud computing platform. Additionally, if a company has implemented custom fields, custom records, role-based security or custom dashboard elements in their NetSuite account, they will all be seamlessly reflected in the NetSuite app.
Any NetSuite user on the go can appreciate real-time access to their NetSuite calendar and task lists, including the ability to accept or decline events and mark tasks complete. Sales representatives can benefit from access to leads and opportunities, the ability to view customers and contacts, and to review quotes and orders. Field service users can inquire about customer history, browse associated cases, and see all issues filed by a customer. Executives can browse financial trends, watch dashboards in real-time, and drill into Key Performance Indicators (KPIs), as well as generate report snapshots and Scorecards.
"This is a great release by NetSuite," said Elliott Rabin, President, Ridout Plastics Co. Inc. (www.eplastics.com), a plastics manufacturer based in San Diego, CA since 1914. "Access is very fast overall, and trend graphs are much faster than through a browser. From a CEO view, I can see my KPIs and can get top 10 information quickly – by sales, customers, sales reps, etc. Like in a browser, the app lets me find a customer quickly through searching – and I'm one who loves 'recent records' for quick access to information. The iPhone application adds tremendous value to my NetSuite experience."
Mobile business functionality enabled by NetSuite includes:
- NetSuite Dashboards including KPIs, report snapshots, trend graphs, scorecards, reminders, and recent records. The dashboards are interactive, allowing users to drill down and explore trends with the touch of a finger.
- NetSuite Calendar with support for accepting or declining events and marking tasks complete.
- Lead, Prospect & Customer records tailored to mobile sales, field service and executive leadership, including access to associated contacts, marketing campaigns, opportunities, quotes, orders, purchase history, financial history, cases, and issues.
- Productivity tools that leverage native capabilities of the device, such as click-to-call from any NetSuite record containing a phone number, click-to-email from any NetSuite record containing an e-mail address, and click-to-map (via Google Maps) from any NetSuite record containing a physical address.
