SAN MATEO, Calif.—October 24, 2013—NetSuite Inc. (NYSE: N), the industry's leading provider of cloud-based financials / ERP and omnichannel commerce software suites, today announced that five new partners have joined the NetSuite Solution Provider Program, offering mid-market companies a full complement of consulting and implementation services for NetSuite's industry-leading cloud ERP, CRM, Ecommerce and professional services automation (PSA) software suite. In launching cloud practices with NetSuite, Accretive Solutions, ADN Corp., Corporate Renaissance Group, Sabre Solutions and The TM Group are addressing rapidly rising demand for Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) applications that offer businesses the flexibility and scalability for rapid growth without the high capital costs, lengthy implementations and ongoing upgrades and troubleshooting required with traditional on-premise systems. Expanding their portfolios beyond existing on-premise Microsoft, SAP and Sage solutions in many cases, these new NetSuite partners offer deep ERP experience and vertical industry- and business process-specific expertise to help client organisations capitalise on the power of cloud computing to transform business operations in a broad range of industries with agility and speed not otherwise possible with on-premise solutions.
"Our new solution provider partners are a valuable addition to the program and help further validate that cloud business technology is reshaping how client organisations think, innovate and grow their businesses," said Craig West, Vice President of Americas Channel Sales at NetSuite. "We welcome the many decades of experience and expertise these partners bring to the table in enriching NetSuite's value proposition for mid-market and larger enterprises."
Named earlier this year to CRN's 2013 Partner Program Guide with a 5-Star Partner rating, the NetSuite Solution Provider Partner Program's growth has accelerated as organisations seek IT, business and industry consulting expertise to speed time to value with a fast and expert implementation and to make the most of NetSuite to help increase productivity, reduce costs and power rapid growth.
Launched in 2002, the NetSuite Solution Provider Program is the industry's leading cloud channel partner program, providing hundreds of channel partners with a cloud solution to offer prospective customers and grow their businesses as well as industry-leading margins and innovative incentive programs, like the NetSuite SP100, which pays partners 100% of first year NetSuite sales revenues. With cloud computing at the forefront of the hottest trends and cloud ERP leading the way, channel partners representing on-premise products like Sage and Microsoft Dynamics GP continue to migrate to NetSuite's superior cloud business management suite. Designed to help solution providers transform their business model to fully capitalise on the revenue growth opportunity of the NetSuite cloud, the NetSuite Solution Provider Program delivers unprecedented benefits that begin during recruitment and range from business planning, sales, marketing and professional services enablement, to training and education.
