Businesses Breaking Free from Limitations of Sage Select NetSuite Cloud to Enable Growth
LONDON, UK —October 18, 2011—NetSuite Inc. (NYSE: N), the industry's leading vendor of cloud-based financials / ERP software suites, today announced the availability of the Sage Switch Guide, which explores why more than 500 businesses have already switched from Sage to the NetSuite cloud, and provides details and insights from a selection of companies that have made the switch. For decades, Sage customers have struggled to grow and scale with CRM and Ecommerce applications that do not seamlessly integrate with Sage financials. They have endured profits eroded by a total cost of ownership more than double that of the NetSuite cloud.

The Sage Switch Guide, unveiled today, highlights that demand for cloud computing solutions is expected to grow four times faster than the worldwide IT market as a whole over the next four years, according to IDC (source: IDC, Worldwide and Regional Public IT Cloud Services 2011-2015 Forecast, June 2011, http://www.idc.com/getdoc.jsp?containerId=prUS22897311.) The guide also includes eight experiences from former Sage customers that have benefited from switching to an integrated cloud-based application.

"NetSuite continues to build momentum over Sage as businesses grow in sophistication and ambition," said Craig Sullivan, Vice President and General Manager, International for NetSuite. "Over a decade of experience in building our product portfolio on the most modern business cloud architecture puts us in a leading position for organisations looking to increase efficiency, grow profit margins and power through a rapidly changing economic climate."
NetSuite, the UK's leading cloud-based business management suite, frees companies from the sometimes seemingly endless treadmill of ongoing and expensive software upgrades that characterise most legacy, on-premise business computing systems. Businesses run on Sage often find themselves running too many applications which can lead to data duplication, errors and wasted effort. They must invest valuable time and money in software upgrades, only too often to be rewarded with outdated information and a lack of real-time visibility. Switching to the NetSuite cloud can enable Sage customers to lower costs, streamline key business processes, and boost productivity and competitiveness.
Today, more than 10,000 companies and subsidiaries depend on NetSuite to run complex, mission-critical business processes globally in the cloud. Since its inception in 1998, NetSuite has established itself as the leading provider of enterprise-class cloud ERP solutions for divisions of large enterprises and mid-sized organisations seeking to upgrade their antiquated client/server ERP systems. As the leading provider of cloud-based business solution suites, NetSuite excels at streamlining business operations. As demonstrated by its receipt of the 2011 CODiE Award for Best Financial Management Solution, as well as a recent Gartner study naming NetSuite as the fastest growing top 10 financial management systems vendor in the world for the third consecutive year, NetSuite has continued its success in delivering the best cloud business solutions to businesses around the world, enabling them to lower IT costs significantly while increasing productivity, as the global adoption of the cloud is accelerating.
The Arboricultural Association Ltd., Emarket.com, I-nexus, CoAxis Inc., and Mariner Supply, Inc. are among more than 500 former Sage customers that are reaping the benefits of the NetSuite cloud:
