Happy 2016 from all of us here at NetSuite.org! As we dive into a brand new year full of opportunities to support the amazing work of nonprofits and social enterprises across the globe through our software donation and employee volunteer programs, we wanted to take a look back at 2015 and share eight of our favorite and most popular posts from the year.
