New Business Partners Launch Cloud Practices with NetSuite
SAN MATEO, Calif.—September 17, 2014—NetSuite Inc. (NYSE: N), the industry's leading provider of cloud-based financials / ERP and omnichannel commerce software suites, today announced that a number of new business partners including Alternative Technology Solutions, Elegant Cloud Solutions and Maximum Computer Systems have joined the NetSuite Solution Provider Program. The partnership with NetSuite enables these partners, for the first time, to have a presence in the cloud business management space spanning ERP, CRM, ecommerce and omnichannel commerce. Adding NetSuite to their existing practices that include Infor and other on-premise solutions can now enable these partners to meet the growing demand for a comprehensive suite of cloud-based solutions that is architected specifically for the cloud, versus antiquated systems based on client-server technology that require ongoing maintenance, lack flexibility and create a hairball of integration challenges.
