Program will allow you to offer more services and establish a long-term relationship with your
Many consultants see the NetSuite Referral Partner Program as a way to generate revenue; others,
especially those specializing in services such as vendor selection, want to maintain
impartiality. NetSuite offers two options:
- Receive a 10% Referral fee on the 1st year's license.
- You can refer clients but elect not to receive a referral fee. You will still benefit from
membership in the program by gaining access to a better understanding of our software and
the advantages of SaaS; product demonstrations and new product information; industry news
and information; and other services offered exclusively to NetSuite Referral Partners.
SaaS is creating a new dynamic in the software market that allows
consultants to capture revenue that previously was allocated to value-added resellers (VARs) of
"traditional" software packages. This is due to some fundamental differences between SaaS and
- NetSuite allows configuration to be done using a "click-not-code" process that allows anyone
with a good knowledge of the software to create/modify roles, reports, basic workflows, and
other aspects of the software. "Traditional" software requires most configurations to be
done using specialized coding languages previously offered by VARs at hundreds of dollars
per hour. Consultants familiar with NetSuite can now provide these types of services on an
on-going basis without being certified in esoteric programming languages.
- SaaS solutions have a much lower TCO because the subscription cost of SaaS includes
data back-up, security, maintenance/updates and other services that have historically
been provided by VARs. By leveraging the SaaS model and the Referral Partner Program,
consultants can "bundle" business process improvement and other consultative services in
conjunction with an implementation. Your customer will still have a much lower TCO than
they would have if they had purchased traditional software while perceiving (and
receiving) more value.
- NetSuite allows you to perform any required customization and integration using
these standardized languages can create new interfaces for NetSuite, integrate external
data, build custom Web sites connected to the NetSuite back end, and many other
services. These tools can also be used to create extensions to NetSuite's base
functionality, which can then be re-sold to other NetSuite customers.
Management consultants also benefit when their clients use NetSuite. As an
end-to-end tool that captures comprehensive data on all aspects of a company's
operations—including e-commerce, marketing, sales, projects, inventory and accounting—NetSuite
allows consultants to easily access and analyze data from anywhere in an organization and easily
implement improved processes. For example:
- Easily measuring the conversion rate or even the ROI for individual AdWords or other
marketing campaigns by combining accounting, sales and marketing data
- Setting up approvals and workflow on transactions as they flow across the
- Ensuring Fixed Bid projects are being priced properly by combining billing, employee
cost, inventory and time-entry data.
- Determining and setting automated re-order points for inventory items based on sales
forecasts, historical sales and other variables.
