Start Magazine Names NetSuite a Company to "Keep an Eye On"
SAN MATEO, Calif,—July 7, 2005—NetSuite, Inc. today announced it has been named a company to "Keep an Eye On" by Start Magazine (www.startmag.com), a leading manufacturing and technology publication. The Start Magazine award was created to recognize software and hardware vendors that have developed innovative applications or products for the manufacturing industry. Companies were judged on their growth record during the last few years, how their product/service is unique, and how they are meeting customer demands.

Widely-used by thousands of customers globally from a spectrum of industry sections including wholesale/distribution, retail, manufacturing and professional services, NetSuite enables companies to manage all key business operations in a single, integrated system, which includes customer relationship management; order management and fulfillment; inventory management; finance; ecommerce and Web site management; and employee productivity. NetSuite is delivered as an on-demand service, so there is no hardware to procure, no large, up-front license fee, and no complex set-ups. Finally, NetSuite's patent-pending "real-time dashboard" technology provides an easy-to-use view into role-specific business information that is always up-to-date.
"Through this contest, Start Magazine seeks to honor technology providers that have proven their solutions to be highly unique, while experiencing strong growth in the process," said Peggy Smedly, Editorial Director/Publisher, Specialty Publishing Co.
