NetSuite OpenAir Helps Consulting Firm Cut Costs While Growing at 40% Yearly

"We were growing at a revenue rate of 40% per annum, and at times we actually turned down business due to an inability to properly resource jobs. NetSuite OpenAir did wonders not only for our project delivery but also our client satisfaction. We are now able to run reports immediately and share progress, changes in scope, and issues with our clients."
