Mid-Sized Enterprises Save Millions of Dollars with
Orlando, FL - Gartner Midsize Enterprise Summit - April
29, 2003 - NetLedger, Inc., makers of Oracle® Small
Business Suite, today announced that NetSuite, its award-winning
online business management solution, has gained rapid
adoption by mid-sized businesses and divisions of large
enterprises. NetSuite integrates front office, back
office and online operations, delivering automated business
management processes at a fraction of the cost for traditional,
non-integrated software solutions. The Oracle Small
Business Suite name is used under license from Oracle
Corporation (NASDAQ: ORCL).
"Mid-size companies spend hundreds of thousands of
dollars tying together an accounting system from one
vendor with CRM software from another vendor," said
Zach Nelson, president and CEO of NetLedger. "NetSuite,
by integrating complete ERP and CRM functionality in
a single, easy-to-use application, eliminates these
costs completely. It is gratifying to see our customers
save so much money with our solution."
Nearly 1,000 companies have standardized their businesses
on NetSuite since the product's release in October 2002.
These companies have saved enormous amounts of time
and money while improving productivity since implementing
A recent USA TODAY article highlighted such enormous
cost savings when speaking about NetLedger customer
DuPont AirProducts NanoMaterials: "When Bob Grashoff,
CEO of DuPont AirProducts NanoMaterials, needed accounting
software last year, he considered SAP. But rolling out
SAP would take a year or longer, and Grashoff needed
something quick for 70 employees doing $20 million in
annual revenue. He signed with NetLedger to provide
accounting services over the Internet for $100,000 a
year. Grashoff figures he saved more than $500,000 by
not having to set up an in-house SAP system." For the

Alpha Thought Global, Inc., (www.alphathought.com),
and its affiliates, an 800-employee medical billing
firm, based in Chicago, IL, has seen immediate benefits.
Andrew Johnson, CFO of Alpha Thought touted, "We have
saved more than $200,000 in annual salaries just for
choosing NetSuite. With Web-based NetSuite, our accountant
can handle four remote sites from a single location.
Otherwise, I would need a body at every site. I also
have zero need for in-house IT support and maintenance."
He continued, "I looked at SAP, but NetSuite had all
the functionality I needed at a much lower price." For

WildPackets, Inc., (www.wildpackets.com),
a 100-employee technology company, based in Walnut Creek,
CA, found NetSuite after its office burnt down, destroying
the company's IT infrastructure. Mahboud Zabetian, president
and co-founder of WildPackets, Inc. said, "The fire
was a mixed blessing. It kicked us out of our old system
and gave us something that works. We had invested a
few hundred thousand dollars worth of our own time getting
the previous systems to work together. NetSuite's front-
and back-office features were already integrated in
one application. More importantly, NetSuite has saved
us $250,000 on implementation and $500,000 in ongoing
savings from avoided hardware and headcount costs."
