BLYTHECO PARTNERS WITH NETSUITE TO LAUNCH NEW CLOUD COMPUTING PRACTICE
Sage's Top VAR Augments Existing Product Offerings with NetSuite Cloud Business Solutions
NetSuite SuiteWorld 2012, SAN FRANCISCO—May 17, 2012—NetSuite Inc. (NYSE: N), the industry's leading provider of cloud-based financials / ERP software suites, announced today that Blytheco, a leading business management software and consulting services firm for the mid-market, has joined the NetSuite Solution Provider Program to deliver cloud ERP to companies across a wide range of industries. Blytheco, founded in 1980 and serving more than 5,000 SMB and enterprise clients across the U.S., is launching a new cloud computing practice in addition to its existing portfolio.
Blytheco will focus on selling, implementing and supporting NetSuite cloud ERP / financials, CRM, eCommerce and supply chain solutions to a growing new prospect base that is increasingly interested in moving to cloud-based business management solutions from on-premise software. The partnership extends Blytheco's offerings beyond its traditional focus of on-premise Sage applications. Having built best practices for extending on-premise software to meet industry-specific needs for its clients, Blytheco is planning to leverage that domain knowledge to build SuiteApps using NetSuite's SuiteCloud Computing Platform to leverage their NetSuite cloud offerings to meet vertical needs.
"The cloud is here to stay as a proven delivery platform and NetSuite is relevant to what customers are looking for in a fully integrated suite of business applications. We see a significant opportunity to meet customer demands and make a market impact with a cloud solution proven to improve business efficiency and visibility while allowing businesses to scale on demand," said Stephen Blythe, Founder and CEO of Blytheco. "We're thrilled to partner with NetSuite, a cloud software provider that has established a clear market leadership and is continuously moving forward with its product and partnering enhancements and innovations."
Blytheco conducted thorough due diligence on NetSuite's cloud solution, customer successes, customisation capacity, market position, financial stability, partner channel program and future direction. "NetSuite is the clear leader in each of the areas we examined," said Blythe.
The addition of Blytheco to the NetSuite Solution Provider Program signals the continuing momentum at which traditional on-premise Solution Providers are responding to the growing market demand for cloud solutions, capitalising on the revenue growth opportunities of the cloud.
"This partnership is a win-win-win for Blytheco, NetSuite and companies looking to take advantage of the transformative power of cloud computing," said Zach Nelson, NetSuite CEO. "Blytheco has been a trusted provider of software and services for more than 30 years with an excellent track record of helping clients achieve their business goals. We're delighted to welcome them to Cloud NetSuite and look forward to many mutual successes together."
