New Integration Technology Seamlessly Integrates NetSuite with Microsoft® Outlook, Microsoft Excel, Google® and Others
SAN MATEO, Calif., — August 4, 2005 — NetSuite, Inc.,the leader in on-demand business management software, today announced Version 10.6, a new release of NetSuite's on-demand solution that breaks user interface barriers associated with browser-based applications. With NetSuite 10.6, users can perform complex business functions that dynamically change data without regenerating the browser page, extend NetSuite with any application, and simply integrate with widely-used applications like Microsoft Office and Google Maps. With these new capabilities, NetSuite combines rich business intelligence and analytics with seamless business process management in a single, hosted application designed to meet the needs of growing small and medium-sized businesses.

Building productive, Web-based applications requires new thinking and new technology. NetSuite's "one system" approach of combining ERP, CRM and Ecommerce functionality to run a company's core business processes was the first step in creating a new class of applications. The new functionality in NetSuite 10.6 solutions adds a host of new user interface, application extensibility and productivity tools:
1. The New "AJAX" Dashboard
Virtually every page uses one or more aspects of AJAX, including:
The NetSuite 10.6 dashboards also benefit from some new visualization and alerting technologies to add to NetSuite's existing capabilities, including:
2. NetFlex Custom Centers Enable Total Customization of UI and Entirely New Applications
The new Custom Center capabilities of NetSuite 10.6, used together with the NetFlex AppBuilder toolset, allow users to design, build, deploy, manage and access entirely new applications through a unified interface. Custom Centers let companies tailor a custom user interface (tabs, menus, dashboards, etc.) for a variety of application usage. Custom Centers can be used to give a particular user a whole new view of NetSuite resident data. For example, a CEO Center could be created to organize information in exactly the way a CEO chooses to see it. Alternatively, it could be used to build a whole new application leveraging NetSuite's NetFlex environment. Either way, these custom-built applications share the benefits of a robust on-demand architecture provided by NetSuite solutions such as:
3. Fast, Seamless Third Party Integration
Even when using one system to streamline and run major business operations, companies sometimes have a need to easily tap into other applications such as popular productivity tools from Microsoft, or access information over the Web such as maps from Google.
NetSuite 10.6 solutions add several new ways to easily integrate with these types of systems:
"NetSuite is all about making it simpler to manage a business better," said Zach Nelson, CEO of NetSuite. "Our latest release is focused on making every employee's job—the work they do with others inside their company and with their industry's customers and suppliers—better. We've even combined the world's most popular desktop productivity tools with the world's leading business management application to give customers the equivalent of one tool kit to meet their business management, communication, and analysis needs."
