One key benefit of Oracle’s acquisition of NetSuite is the resources Oracle brings to help NetSuite expand its global capability and reach. Today we’re happy to announce early progress toward that goal.
In the EMEA region, the overall focus will be on increasing investments and resources for customer success and market expansion in three key areas.
Launching New Nordic Operations
Oracle NetSuite Global Business Unit will establish a physical presence in the Nordic region, with an office in Stockholm, which will initially cover the whole region to serve and expand upon the success of our existing footprint. We already have a strong partner presence in the region and our customer numbers continue to grow. While NetSuite OneWorld already works extremely well for organisations across the Nordics, we will be investing in deepening our localisation over the coming months so that it is more than a match for any local system in the region as well as internationally.
Increasing Investments in the UK and Ireland
Since NetSuite opened its first office in London in 2002, we have shown an unrelenting commitment to bring the power of cloud business management software suites to businesses in the UK, Ireland and Europe as a whole. As the adoption of NetSuite cloud accelerates in Europe, the company has doubled down on investment to support the business growth in the UK and Irish markets in recent years.
In 2017, as Oracle NetSuite Global Business Unit we have much more resources and support to invest in and expand our current operations in the UK, with a major recruitment drive across sales, professional services, account management and beyond.
Focusing on Growth in Benelux
We opened a data centre in Benelux in 2016 with the new facility in Amsterdam. We signed on some innovative and fast growing companies including Transavia, The Europe Watch Group, Zembro and Esomar, adding to the more than 850 subsidiaries and legal entities in Benelux of companies like Misys, American Express Global Business Travel, Commvault, and Meltwater running their mission critical business processes on NetSuite. This year we are building on those foundations, expanding the operation significantly in the region.
These are exciting times. In addition to these specific organisational and product expansions, we will continue to support and grow our already highly successful partner channel, which helps us to reach and deliver to customers right across EMEA.
This is the just the beginning of our exciting investment and expansion in the region. Watch out for further announcements in the very near future and at SuiteWorld 2017.
