NETSUITE PARTNER PROGRAM AWARDED FIVE-STAR CERTIFICATION BY EVERYTHING CHANNEL
NetSuite's Solution Provider Program Recognised as Exceptional by Leading Channel Authority
SAN MATEO, Calif. —March 28, 2011—NetSuite Inc. (NYSE: N), the industry's leading provider of cloud-based financials / ERP software suites, today announced it has been recognised by Everything Channel as one of North America's premier channel programs. NetSuite's Solution Provider Program was awarded a Five-Star certification in the cloud computing category of Everything Channel's 17th annual 2011 Partner Program Guide (PPG), acknowledging NetSuite's investments in program offerings, partner profitability, partner training, education and support, marketing programs and resources, sales support and communication.
Cloud computing is the hottest trend in software technology today, and NetSuite is leading the pack. The NetSuite Solution Provider Program has brought hundreds of solution providers to the cloud since its inception in 2002. It offers a wealth of opportunities for channel partners to grow their businesses, as more and more companies are looking to cloud computing software solutions to run their business operations. In 2010 NetSuite launched the SP100 Program offering channel businesses aggressive 100 percent first-year margins. Most recently, the company has enhanced the successful program with "SuiteStart Services," which includes fee waivers, free training, comprehensive go-to-market support and marketing resources, and lead generation support. With these program enhancements, NetSuite's Solution Provider Program brings even greater value to channel businesses than before.
"The companies listed on the 2011 Partner Programs Guide represent the best channel programs in the market today. Each of these organisations understands that technology alone does not make for a successful channel program. By focusing on delivering a comprehensive and robust partner program, vendors and solution providers can work together to drive business opportunities and revenue," said Kelley Damore, VP and Editorial Director, for Everything Channel's CRN.
Research for the 2011 Everything Channel Partner Program Guide and the Five-Star Partner Program rating was conducted by Everything Channel's research department. Everything Channel analysed 130 vendor programs rating vendors' responses to in-depth questions about their partner programs in the five elements of sales support, partner profitability, partner ecosystem development/management, partner communication/marketing, and demand generation. The 5-Star Partner Program rating recognises the elite subset of Partner Program Guide vendors who give solution providers the best partnering elements in their channel programs. The 5-Star rating is bestowed on programs whose overall rating is among the elite based on company size.
"A Five-Star award is testament to NetSuite's best-in-class partner program and the commitment that we put forth to support and enable the success of our partners who have adopted the cloud strategy," said Craig West, NetSuite VP of Channel Sales. "In addition to the benefits our award-winning Solution Provider program provides partners, NetSuite's product portfolio offers the world's leading cloud-based business management solution, making for an unmatched partnering opportunity."
