“We needed to have the confidence that the technology choice we made was going to be able to accommodate our subscription-based business.” Peter Lilley, COO, Instaclustr

Keeping Tabs on Fast Growth

Surging into the big leagues
Instaclustr was first to market with its Apache Cassandra managed service solution, which quickly gained traction with enterprise customers. The business went from monthly revenues of $5,000 to more than 100x per month that in three years while establishing a US subsidiary operation in the same timeframe. This explosive growth, while fantastic, severely stretched the business’ existing systems, resources and lean workforce.
Thinking outside the lines
Instaclustr’s previous solution, Xero, was unable to scale alongside the company as it expanded internationally and increased complexity. The business also needed an advanced ERP that could anchor global financial operations, while providing the visibility and automation capabilities required to keep operations efficient and lean.
Coding longevity into the business
With NetSuite OneWorld, the business now consolidates four offices across Australia the US and the UK, including real-time FX for AUD, USD and GBP, helping it to manage global operations and a growing client base. This has resulted in faster reporting times, a $300,000+ saving in hiring costs, and a sustainable operational matrix for continued growth.
A united future
Instaclustr plans to integrate existing digital assets with its NetSuite solution, allowing the business to consolidate data to improve visibility and reporting. What's more, it plans to give employees regular NetSuite training to improve data-driven decision making across the business.
