NetSuite is increasingly the platform of choice not simply to manage business processes and accounts in the cloud(opens in new tab), but to completely transform enterprise strategy in ways that would take years longer with conventional software. Some of the biggest brands on the Forbes 2000(opens in new tab) see NetSuite as their best way forward to success in the highly competitive global marketplace of the 21st century.
You will find NetSuite at the heart of the revolution at one of the nation's biggest clothiers, which is about to make a major eCommerce(opens in new tab) splash and recognized that it needed a modern solution to power that transformation. Virtually every movement of inventory in the multi-billion dollar business will flow through NetSuite, because the kind of agility and transparency necessary to run a modern, real-time eCommerce operation is simply too much to ask of conventional software.
Another household name about to make a major foray into international markets realized that it would take as long as three years to extend its current ERP(opens in new tab) and eCommerce systems around the world. So instead, they're turning to NetSuite, which will give them the tools they need to run a global organization in a matter of months.
Some are choosing to transform their business in the cloud because their on-premise ERP systems have simply priced themselves out of contention. We are in serious discussions with companies looking to move away from their old-guard ERP system to NetSuite, because the incumbent's "upgrade" pricing is virtually equal to the purchase of the new product. When our competitors impose pricing policies that clearly reveal just how costly their systems are to install and maintain, we are only too happy to present an affordable and powerful alternative as a Tier 1 ERP solution.
Others brought in NetSuite to address specific departmental or procedural problems(opens in new tab), and have grown to understand what NetSuite can do for the enterprise as a whole. After seeing how quickly NetSuite helps them resolve issues with inventory control or professional services management, IT and business leaders quickly recognize the potential to improve performance throughout the organization.
Brick-and-mortar retailers looking to shed their real estate and rebuild their brand on the Internet will need to establish new competitive advantages in order to succeed. Tightly coupling eCommerce and ERP capabilities, as NetSuite does, provides those game-changing advantages. The urgency of these decisions is making NetSuite a boardroom topic, and we expect companies whose futures depend on reinvention to embrace the opportunity to transform in the cloud.
