"The big gain is we’re improving overall company results with NetSuite because we can take a more strategic approach to the business, instead of just data capture and processing." Patrick Knight, COO, DWA Media

From Fragmented Legacy Silos to a Single System of Record
NetSuite OneWorld was the ideal solution for DWA to streamline global financial consolidation across seven subsidiaries while enabling transactions in the currencies of more than a dozen countries. Live in August 2014, NetSuite OneWorld puts real-time data at the fingertips of decision makers and improves transparency and data consistency across the global business with a single system of record.
Liberating Finance for Business Insights and Impact
By eliminating manual work, NetSuite OneWorld has liberated the finance team to focus on value-added strategic analytics to help guide the business. Less manual data inputs have reduced error rates by 50%, while overall monthly consolidation and reporting has been reduced from about 14 to eight days. With faster and more comprehensive global visibility, DWA is making more informed business decisions that drive profitability.
Transformation for Agility and Competitive Advantage
With revenue up 36% in its year on NetSuite, DWA has transformed itself into a more agile, growth-oriented agency that can focus more resources on serving such technology clients as Cisco, Rackspace, Box, Lenovo and Citrix. Integrating NetSuite with third-party CRM and marketing applications through a Celigo connector, DWA operates on a modern, future-proof cloud platform—a distinct advantage in a highly competitive market.
