(NYSE: N), the industry's leading provider of cloud-based financials / ERP software suites, today announced a systems integrator (SI) partnership with Burr Pilger Mayer (BPM), the largest California-based accounting and consulting firm.

Partnering with NetSuite gives BPM an immediate presence in the rapidly expanding cloud computing industry, a world-class development platform as well as a superior line-up of cloud business management solutions, including NetSuite's core integrated suite that combines ERP / financials, customer relationship management (CRM) and Ecommerce software, and NetSuite OneWorld—a cloud computing solution which enables multinational and multi-subsidiary companies to manage their global financial consolidation and business operations in real-time.
The new practice leverages BPM's extensive business process domain knowledge and understanding of clients' critical business processes to deliver best-in-class implementation services and support. NetSuite OneWorld, a solution that enables companies to lower costs, operate more efficiently and compete globally, complements BPM's global international tax and consulting businesses that have a strong focus on California-based businesses and their international operations. In addition, NetSuite's powerful, proven cloud computing platform provides vast possibilities to BPM's IT services group that has built trusted relationships with major clients for more than 20 years. NetSuite's integrated Ecommerce functionality can enable BPM to rapidly expand its Ecommerce offerings to a wide client base in technology, retail, and distribution. The new practice is expected to deliver NetSuite solutions to both public and private companies seeking a modern, comprehensive, cloud-based approach to financials, ERP and CRM. BPM's Cloud Integration Practice also includes a dedicated team to develop in-depth customisations and NetSuite Applications (SuiteApps) to meet clients' unique requirements and creates substantial new ongoing revenue streams for BPM.
BPM recognised the limitations of its existing on-premise ERP technology partners and the significant customer demand for the flexibility and efficiency of modern cloud computing solutions. After thorough research, NetSuite rose to the top as the obvious choice for their cloud computing partnership. NetSuite has long been the solution of choice for companies looking to modernise their business operating platforms, particularly those firms with global aspirations. With extensive multi-currency, multi-language and multi-subsidiary support as well as unparalleled support for complex processes such as revenue recognition management, NetSuite and BPM can offer more powerful solutions to customers, with just a fraction of the implementation cost and IT overhead of conventional on-premise software. NetSuite's unrivalled international inventory management and demand planning should be of keen interest to BPM customers seeking efficiencies in those areas.
Today, more than 10,000 companies and subsidiaries depend on NetSuite to run complex, mission-critical business processes in the cloud globally. Since its inception in 1998, NetSuite has established itself as the leading provider of enterprise-class cloud ERP solutions for divisions of large enterprises and mid-sized organisations seeking to upgrade their antiquated client/server ERP systems. As demonstrated by the 2011 CODiE Award for Best Financial Management Solution as well as a recent Gartner study naming NetSuite as the fastest growing financial management systems vendor in the world, NetSuite has continued its success in delivering the best cloud businesses solutions to businesses around the world, enabling them to lower IT costs significantly while increasing productivity as the global adoption of the cloud is accelerating.
