NetSuite Executives and Land O'Lakes CIO to Explore How Global Companies Are Gaining Agility and Scalability for Rapid Growth with Cloud ERP

SAN MATEO, Calif.—October 3, 2014—NetSuite Inc. (NYSE: N), the industry's leading provider of cloud-based financials / ERP and omnichannel commerce software suites, today announced it will highlight at the Gartner Symposium/ITxpo 2014 how companies are using NetSuite software to transform their rapidly growing businesses. NetSuite executives will lead three sessions at the high-profile and sold-out Gartner event and they will explore how leading organisations are scaling up and making their businesses more efficient by deploying NetSuite's integrated cloud suite for ERP, CRM, integrated commerce and services automation. The presentations will be led by NetSuite Chief Operating Officer Jim McGeever, Services Vertical Senior Vice President Ed Marshall, and Solution Consulting Manager Kevin Durand. NetSuite will also offer personalised demos of its solutions at booth #8 on the exhibition floor. The Gartner Symposium/ITxpo takes place October 5-9 in Orlando, Fla.

Mr. McGeever will be joined by Mike Macrie, CIO of Land O'Lakes, in a discussion of how a growing number of global organisations are adopting two-tier ERP, with the NetSuite OneWorld global business management solution deployed at the subsidiary level. Mr. Macrie will share how Land O'Lakes, the $14.2 billion food and agriculture cooperative, is leveraging NetSuite OneWorld to fuel global growth across Latin America, Asia and Africa. Land O'Lakes runs several international subsidiaries and three Nutra Blend feed ingredient businesses on NetSuite OneWorld, complementing an on-premise Oracle J.D. Edwards ERP system in place at corporate headquarters. By deploying NetSuite OneWorld, multinational companies avoid the high cost and time spent implementing and maintaining an on-premise ERP solution while gaining real-time visibility into subsidiary performance, global financial consolidation, multi-currency transactions and country-specific tax compliance. NetSuite OneWorld supports more than 190 currencies, 19 languages and tax compliance across more than 50 countries to enable global organisations to rapidly expand around the world and significantly reduce the complexity of multi-subsidiary management.
