Covali Ltd., Ensphere Consulting, and OSSM Cloud Solutions Select NetSuite as a Strategic Cloud Imperative as Demand for Cloud Solutions in EMEA Accelerates
LONDON—4 December, 2013—NetSuite Inc. (NYSE: N), the industry's leading provider of cloud-based financials / ERP and omnichannel commerce software suites, today announced that three new partners have joined the NetSuite Solution Provider Program, in response to the growing need for a modern, scalable, cloud-based business management software suite in the EMEA region. Covali Ltd., Ensphere Consulting Ltd. and OSSM Cloud Solutions, reflect the many ways in which forward-thinking value-added resellers (VARs) are joining the NetSuite ecosystem—adding NetSuite cloud ERP to an existing Sage reseller business. By launching NetSuite cloud practices, Covali, Ensphere and OSSM, are responding to the demand for agile, scalable and flexible cloud-based business software that doesn't demand the upfront costs, ongoing maintenance and lengthy implementations that traditional on-premise systems such as Sage require. These firms can provide consulting and implementation services for NetSuite’s industry-leading cloud ERP, CRM, Ecommerce and professional services automation (PSA) software suites.
"These new partners demonstrate the rapid adoption of cloud solutions in EMEA and their confidence in the future of NetSuite," said John Campbell, Director of Channel Sales EMEA at NetSuite. "We're happy to welcome their many years of experience to the solution provider program and look forward to a long relationship delivering value to their customers and ours."
The new partners joining the NetSuite Solution Provider Program are:
Covali Ltd. (www.covaligroup.com), based in Dublin, Ireland, is launching its ERP practice on NetSuite, bringing its deep experience in analytics and business intelligence (BI) to cloud ERP. With a long history of connecting business people to the data they need with the QlikView and GoodData BI systems, and a focus on the cloud, Covali can now offer businesses the rapid time to value, flexibility and scalability of NetSuite. As one of the first in the market to offer applications that integrate ERP and BI, Covali can provide clients with a cloud-based integrated ERP and BI system. Serving businesses in healthcare, retail, Ecommerce, energy and more in both the UK and in Ireland, Covali is poised to answer growing demand for a cloud-based unified business suite of applications. "We believe the cloud is the future and NetSuite is the leading product in the marketplace," said Noel Shannon, Covali Managing Director. "We are excited to bring our expertise in business software and processes together with NetSuite."
Ensphere Consulting Ltd. (www.ensphereconsulting.com), a Warrington, UK-based reseller of Sage ERP and CRM founded six years ago, turned to NetSuite this year to transition itself into a more cloud-centric, cloud-focused business, expanding on its existing managed service and Sage operations. The last twelve months have shown a growing appetite for NetSuite that the firm was unable to answer until now. Ensphere, with more than 90 customers and a focus on manufacturing, is well-positioned for growth in the UK and aims to provide multinational companies setting up offices in the UK - or UK-based companies growing internationally with the implementation, consulting and integration services to achieve their business goals. "We plan to double our cloud business in the coming year and when we looked at the market there was only one clear winner," said Wayne Nolan, Managing Director at Ensphere. "We needed a product with a global footprint. That product is NetSuite. With NetSuite's solution and our experience, our clients in the region are well positioned to leverage the cloud for success."
OSSM Cloud Solutions (www.ossmcloud.ie), a Dublin-based company named after the National Institute of Science and Technology's definition of cloud as "On-demand, Scalable, Self-service and Measurable," launched a new NetSuite practice this year. An offshoot of Advent Processing Solutions Ltd., and a Sage solutions reseller for the past 10 years with more than 500 clients, OSSM joined the NetSuite Solution Provider Program to target the upper tier of the midmarket segment. NetSuite's ease of deployment, flexibility and scalability will allow OSSM to offer a modern ERP solution to two of Ireland's burgeoning business sectors—companies focused on international growth and software and services—providing installation, training and services as well as development. "We've seen an evolution in understanding of the cloud in Ireland," said Raymond Ryan, Managing Director of OSSM. "Where once we were explaining it, now people are deploying it. NetSuite is cloud software as it should be, a solution that runs an entire business on one platform. We're eager to bring our experience and client-service credentials together with NetSuite to spread the cloud throughout the region."

With cloud computing at the forefront of the hottest trends and cloud ERP leading the way, channel partners representing on-premise products like Sage and Microsoft Dynamics GP continue to migrate to NetSuite's superior cloud business management suite.
