SAGE CUSTOMERS VOTE FOR NETSUITE
UK Companies Cross Party Lines to Endorse the NetSuite Cloud
LONDON and SAN MATEO, Calif. —September 8, 2010 —NetSuite Inc. (NYSE: N), the industry's leading provider of cloud-based financials / ERP software suites, today announced the latest Sage customers to join the future of enterprise computing by voting for NetSuite cloud solutions over Sage on-premise offerings. NetSuite, the world's first and most widely chosen cloud financial / ERP solution, frees companies from the seemingly endless treadmill of ongoing and expensive software upgrades that characterize most legacy, on-premise business computing systems. This benefit is just one of many driving Sage customers to NetSuite as they seek to lower costs, streamline key business processes, and boost productivity and competitiveness.
While most Sage products still feature software code originally written before the birth of the World Wide Web, NetSuite, from its founding, has built cloud financial management solutions with the Internet at its heart.
"Every company deserves to have powerful business applications that take full advantage of the Internet and the latest web technologies," said NetSuite CEO Zach Nelson. "We're thrilled to have Sage customers vote for NetSuite by choosing us to help them run their businesses more efficiently and profitably. We will honor these votes by continuing to deliver solutions that feature the most cutting-edge Internet technologies."
Companies switching from Sage to NetSuite include:
- Buttress Group (www.buttress.co.uk) is an importer and distributor of catering equipment and supplies in the United Kingdom. The company's two divisions sell to over 5,000 individual and institutional buyers. Buttress is moving from Sage to NetSuite after Sage stopped supporting its solution and the business' stability was threatened by the need to maintain orphaned software code — something which does not happen in the fully-managed NetSuite cloud. "We looked at other Sage products, but they just were not up to the job. NetSuite gives us all the things we want, and more — CRM, ERP, and a Web store, all integrated," said Roger Keith, Buttress Group Operations Director. "NetSuite handles all of the industry-specific needs of our import and distribution lines of business, and can be accessed from anywhere, with no complications."
- Easynet Connect (www.easynetconnect.net) is one of United Kingdom's largest network providers. The DSL and high-speed fiberoptic services company ran for years on a complex stack of legacy products. Over time, the inefficiencies of the loosely-linked on-premise products became clear and Easynet Connect voted instead for the tightly-integrated, productivity-enhancing NetSuite solution. "The applications were not fully integrated, so staff wasted time transferring data from one system to another," said Chris Stening, Managing Director, Easynet Connect. "NetSuite has enabled us to automate these processes and dedicate the time to other areas of the business. It is simply leagues in its support for financial and billing processes across the company."
