(NYSE: N), the industry's leading provider of cloud-based financials / ERP and omnichannel commerce software suites, today announced that three new partners including ClearERP, Cooper Software, and ProCons, have joined its Solution Provider Program in EMEA amid fast-growing demand for cloud business management software in the region.

The program also offers partners industry-leading margins and innovative incentive programs, like the NetSuite SP100, which pays partners 100 percent of first-year NetSuite sales revenues. With cloud computing at the forefront of the hottest trends and cloud ERP leading the way, channel partners representing on-premise products like Microsoft Dynamics GP and SAP continue to build new practices based on NetSuite's superior cloud business management suite. Designed to help solution providers transform their business model to fully capitalise on the revenue growth opportunity of the NetSuite cloud, the NetSuite Solution Provider Program delivers unprecedented benefits that begin during partner recruitment and range from business planning, sales, marketing and professional services enablement to training and education.
