The new customers announced today include:
XL Results Foundation:
"We've been growing rapidly in Southeast Asia, but our technology was outdated and did not give us an overall picture of where the business stood," said Irene Millar, General Manager of Singapore-based XL Results Foundation (www.resultsfoundation.com), which provides networking, coaching, training and resources for entrepreneurs throughout Asia Pacific. "Now we're using NetSuite for our event management, including our Web store sign ups, email marketing campaigns, and customer support. We now have a clear picture of our business and are much more effective. NetSuite will support our expansion into new territories planned during 2006."
"We love how NetSuite gives us real-time access to all our ERP and CRM data while we're on the road," said Jerker Berthou, co-founder of OPS Limited (www.ops-limited), a Hong Kong-based manufacturer of promotional apparel with employees in China, Bangladesh and Belgium. "We have three warehouses and will use NetSuite for the tracking and shipping of our inventory, and in addition will be able to easily set up a Web store and start selling online, adding that extra revenue stream."
"After six years in the business we, realized our several in-house databases would not take us to the next level," said Ron Effron, CEO of ICD (www.icd.com.cn), a security company with 80 employees based in Beijing, China, and with eight locations throughout the country. "We knew we needed an online system, and after considering several stand-alone options, decided it made more sense to go with a total solution. So we chose NetSuite."
Skyline APAC (s) Pte Ltd.:
"We were using QuickBooks for a few years, but we had to keep separate accounts, and we outgrew it," said Felix Chin, Director, Skyline APAC (s) Pte Ltd. (www.skylinesb.com), a distributor of digital accessories based in Singapore, with branches in Malaysia and Thailand. "We considered Microsoft CRM, but it, too, would have required us to have information in separate places. With NetSuite, we now have our CRM, ERP and ecommerce all in one product."
