SAN MATEO, CA – June17, 2004 – NetSuite,

NetSuite's product offerings include NetSuite, NetERP,
NetCRM, and Oracle® Small Business Suite. The Oracle
Small Business Suite name is used under license from
Oracle Corporation (NASDAQ: ORCL).
One commonality companies have prior to implementing
NetSuite is that they all use disparate software applications
to run their business – one for financials, one
for sales, one for customer service and support, one
for inventory management and one for marketing. Frustrated
with the cost and complexity of using different software
packages, these companies chose NetSuite as the one
solution to automate their business operations so that
data moves seamlessly across departments. Additionally,
NetSuite's advanced customization technology gives
them the ability to tailor NetSuite to meet their specific
needs. Also, because it is an on-demand, Web-based service,
NetSuite eliminates the pain of managing, upgrading
and maintaining traditional software.
In particular, new government regulations such as Sarbanes-Oxley
(SOX) make fragmented business management systems even
more costly and problematic. AMR Research estimates
that corporations will spend $5 billion (U.S.) on SOX
compliance in 2004. According to a white paper sponsored
by Microsoft Corp., the top challenge facing companies
seeking to comply with Sarbanes-Oxley is "Multiple,
nonintegrated CRM/ERP/MRP/SCM/Project Accounting System."
(Source: "Sarbanes-Oxley: The role of MBS Technology
in Supporting Compliance," www.microsoft.com).
NetSuite, with its single integrated ERP/CRM solution
eliminates the difficulty of compliance with SOX, as
a company's business processes are well documented within
the application itself. As well, NetSuite tracks a full
audit trail for every action taken in the system, from
scheduling a meeting to invoicing a customer. Such rich
audit trails are an important element of maintaining
"Companies embrace NetSuite as a single application
to run their business because it lowers cost, improves
customer service, and delivers business intelligence
in real-time," said Zach Nelson, CEO of NetSuite.
"As larger, public companies begin to leverage
NetSuite, they find that it makes the job of Sarbanes-Oxley
compliance much easier to document and much less expensive
