NETSUITE OFFERS LIFE-TIME FIXED PRICE FOR SALESFORCE.COM SWITCHERS

Free Data Migration for 100 MB of Salesforce.com Data


SAN MATEO, CA—October 9, 2006—NetSuite, Inc., the leader in on-demand business software suites, today announced a package to eliminate the "sticker shock" users feel when they get a salesforce.com renewal notice that is much higher than their original subscription. NetSuite is offering existing salesforce.com users a life-time subscription price fixed at the price of their most recent invoice. NetSuite is also making migration from salesforce.com painless by including free services to transfer 100MB of salesforce.com data. This offer applies to all users migrating to NetSuite CRM+ from salesforce.com Professional and Enterprise Editions and is valid until December 31, 2006. For more details about the switch and offer, please visit www.netsuite.com/stickershock. On November 1, NetSuite CEO Zach Nelson is hosting a Webinar about why thousands of salesforce.com users have switched to NetSuite. It will include a panel discussion with former salesforce.com users. To sign up for the Webinar, please go to https://netsuitemeeting.webex.com/netsuitemeeting/onstage/tool/enrollee/register.php?ConfID=245034898&Rnd=40759190.

Salesforce.com switchers who take the NetSuite offer receive much more than just a fixed price on a great product. They also receive important sales force automation (SFA) and CRM functionality not found in salesforce.com:

  • the ability to create estimates or quotes
  • generate sales orders
  • manage multiple quotes or forecasts
  • automate support for cross-selling and up-selling
  • manage incentive management (commissions) within the system without using a third product
  • pre-configured dashboards for business intelligence, and more.

According to a Forrester Research study entitled Hosted Sales Force Automation TechRankings™, NetSuite had the top score in the major "Sales Management" category, as well as in the "Breadth of Offerings" category. Additionally, NetSuite received high scores in some of the most important functional areas of SFA including forecasting, opportunity management, activity management, dashboards, document management, and pricing and products.

"We switched to NetSuite because salesforce.com didn't have the extra features NetSuite has, including order management," said Fabrice Cancre, COO, Olympus NDT (www.olympusndt.com), a manufacturer and distributor of testing equipment headquartered in Waltham, Mass. "We have gradually increased NetSuite usage to our 100-plus member distributed sales team. We can create quotations and sales orders, and measure the forecast by product — something we couldn't do with salesforce.com. We're continually deploying more NetSuite features and are planning to use even more of the advanced CRM+ features NetSuite is offering, as well as extending the suite to our international offices."
