  • Running on NetSuite, Feeney has grown its business more than 20% year-over-year in the last three years without having to add extra headcount to support its increasing expansion. By automating and streamlining the bulk of its business processes on NetSuite, Feeney is able to operate efficiently.
  • Live on NetSuite since 2003, Feeney has been able to seamlessly change its primary business model from a long-time B2C operation into a highly successful B2B company, in the process growing its retail business to more than 500 retailers across the U.S. up from zero retailers six years ago.
  • The majority of Feeney’s business is B2B with a small B2C operation and an ecommerce operation that consistently accounts for 4% of total sales. With NetSuite, Feeney is able to provide customers with a user-friendly and attractive online experience.
  • NetSuite analytics help management make pricing adjustments based on accurate competitive analysis.
  • Feeney can set prices for thousands of SKUs in a day, compared to a week or more without NetSuite.
  • NetSuite CRM’s ‘win-loss’ opportunity feature helps management closely track pricing impact on sales.
