The Winning Solutions:
Best Industry Solution — Winner: Epiphany, Inc. (Houston, Texas)
Built on NetSuite, dNet has been customized with a complimentary industry-specific quoting tool to meet the needs of audiovisual professionals. The solution allows customers to standardize their operations on industry-best practice processes for quoting, managing and billing for complex projects. Its out-of-the-box, repeatable configuration and integration provides additional benefits to customers with rapid time-to-market and low-cost implementations.
"We've been a NetSuite Premier Solution Provider for several years, and the beauty of NetSuite is that it continues to develop its SuiteFlex customization and integration platform to allow us to easily address the needs of vertical markets," said Brenda Brinkley, president, Epiphany Inc. "Once we learned how well we could customize and extend NetSuite in a repeatable manner for the growing audiovisual industry that we already had expertise in, our business has taken off."
Best Integrated Solution — Winner: Contactual (San Carlos, California)
"We are very proud to be a NetSuite partner and to bring the benefits of on-demand contact center management to small to mid-sized businesses," said Mansour Salame, CEO, Contactual. "Our OnDemand Contact Center integrated with NetSuite provides a cost effective solution for contact centers that is second to none. Customers can benefit from the combined NetSuite/Contactual role as the system-of-record for front- and back-office data, giving contact center employees a 360 degree view of the customer, including the customer's transaction history — something not possible with integrations to standalone CRM applications.
