SAN MATEO, Calif.—April 28, 2014—NetSuite Inc. (NYSE: N), the industry's leading provider of cloud-based financials / ERP and omnichannel commerce software suites, today announced that four new partners—Allunna, CuriousRubik, FMT Consultants and One Vision LLC, have joined the NetSuite Solution Provider Program. The partnership with NetSuite enables these partners to establish an immediate presence in the cloud ERP and cloud business management space. For FMT Consultants and One Vision in particular, adding NetSuite to an existing Microsoft Dynamics GP practice allows them to meet the growing demand for a comprehensive suite of cloud-based solutions that is architected specifically for the cloud versus antiquated systems based on client-server technology that require ongoing maintenance, lack flexibility and create a hairball of integration challenges.
"These new partners demonstrate the broad and growing attraction to NetSuite's true cloud solution and partnering model," said Craig West, Vice President of Americas Channel Sales at NetSuite. "We welcome the partnership opportunity to help these experienced firms meet their transformational business goals by delivering NetSuite success to our mutual customers."

With cloud computing at the forefront of the hottest trends and cloud ERP leading the way, channel partners representing on-premise products like Microsoft Dynamics GP continue to build new practices based on NetSuite's superior cloud business management suite. Designed to help solution providers transform their business model to fully capitalize 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.
