Localised and Designed to Meet Business Requirements, Regulatory and Tax Compliance
LONDON—13 April 2016—NetSuite Inc. (NYSE: N), the industry's leading provider of cloud-based financials / ERP and omnichannel commerce software suites, today announced NetSuite OneWorld for Benelux (The Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg) headquartered businesses. Localised and designed to meet the business needs, regulatory and tax compliance of regional businesses, NetSuite OneWorld brings an agile and flexible cloud software application that can run mission-critical business processes with global financial capabilities unmatched in the industry. Already in use by more than 850 subsidiaries and legal entities of global companies running business in the Benelux region, NetSuite OneWorld can give today’s businesses the ability to expand and transform their organisations and reinvent their business models to meet the ever changing demands of their markets and the expectations of their customers.
Businesses seeking to gain business efficiency, grow revenues, expand globally and enter new markets often find themselves held back by software systems siloed by department, geography or legal entity structures, leaving them unable to deliver an optimal customer experience and gain insights into their operations. These disparate software systems not only cannot scale with business growth, but also introduce excessive costs and potential errors, while also restricting businesses’ ability to respond to their changing markets and the needs of their customers. While on-premise software such as SAP or Microsoft Dynamics GP requires costly maintenance and disrupts the business with every product upgrade, forcing companies into version lock, other available cloud financial software solutions only offer basic product functionality that cannot scale and support business needs and growth. The agility, flexibility and scalability that NetSuite OneWorld provides is difficult to achieve by businesses running legacy on-premise software, or immature ERP cloud solutions, such as Exact cloud ERP in The Netherlands, that are years behind NetSuite and only offer rudimentary functionality.
NetSuite OneWorld, a Game-Changer for Benelux Businesses
NetSuite OneWorld, winner of the 2015 Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA) CODiE Award for Best Financial Management Solution and the 2015 UK Cloud Award for ERP Product of the Year, provides a unified and cloud-based suite of software that is flexible enough to meet the needs of diverse business models, legal structures and geographies. NetSuite OneWorld supports 190 currencies, 20 languages, automated tax calculation and reporting in more than 100 countries, and customer transactions in more than 200 countries.
Further, to help today’s B2B and B2C businesses with omnichannel commerce, NetSuite OneWorld delivers commerce-ready capabilities that can help both B2B and B2C commerce businesses to move from siloed online, in-store and phone consumer shopping channels to an integrated commerce solution, connecting ecommerce and in-store POS to order management, inventory, merchandising, marketing, financials and customer service, while delivering a seamless brand experience and exceeding customer expectations.
