NetSuite Helps iCONN Become International Success While Saving $100,000 Plus 25% Greater Functionality Over SAP BusinessOne

"I'd used SAP BusinessOne in a previous company, and knew that, for this company, we would have had to triple the staff, spend more capital, and we still wouldn't have the functionality and ease of use we're getting now. NetSuite puts you in the driver's seat, so you're not spending time figuring out the software."

—Turker Hidirlar, COO, iCONN Inc.
