NetSuite OpenAir Helps Professional Services Team Focus More on Clients, Less on Paper work

"Our consultants love the increased visibility they now have. No longer do they have to ask for the hours remaining on a contract or the status of a project. All the information is readily available to them no matter where they are in the world."

—Keith McInish, Vice President, Worldwide Professional Services, Rocket Software
