TORONTO, — 17 August, 2005 — NetSuite, Inc., the leader in on-demand business management software, today announced that Gesturetek, the world leaders in computer vision technology, has selected NetSuite to run its business operations, including financials, inventory, marketing, sales management, customer service and customer support.

With marquee clients such as Ford Motor Company, Sony and Hasbro, 12-year-old Gesturetek has steadily increased its customer base and today has thousands of public installations world wide as well as multiple consumer initiatives. The company's products include: GestPoint™, a gesture analysis and control interface for mouse replacement and large screen interactivity from any distance; GestXtreme™, for immersing the users live interactive video image on screen for videogame systems, location-based entertainment and videoconferencing applications; and GroundFX, for user interactivity with floor projections.
Before selecting NetSuite, Gesturetek used a home-grown, internal system that was increasingly difficult to upgrade as business continued to grow. To support the company's growth, Gesturetek needed a solution that would accommodate their expansion and streamline business processes while providing a bird's-eye-view of their operations in real-time. After researching different software packages, Gesturetek pursued NetSuite because it is more than just CRM—NetSuite's inventory management and successes with other light manufacturers put it at the top of Gesturetek's list. In addition, while other vendors failed to respond to initial requests for proposals, NetSuite answered within minutes.
"From day one, I've been impressed with NetSuite's responsiveness, professionalism and knowledge of my business needs," said Gerry Sylvia, Director of Production and Logistics at Gesturetek. "I believe NetSuite gives growing businesses like Gesturetek a competitive edge because they practice what they preach and simply 'get it.' As our roll-out progresses, I continue to be very pleased with the product and with the team."
"Lean, but growing, small and mid-sized companies need their technology investments to deliver rapid business benefits," said Steve Frappier, Director of Sales for NetSuite Canada. "Gestureteck's selection of NetSuite demonstrates how NetSuite's hosted software allows companies to quickly address business critical decisions while providing the deep functionality that growing companies need."
