  • Manufacturing the Cloud: The Scheduling Myth

  • Channels’ Choice – The NetSuite Cloud

    One of the things I like best about working with channel partners is that they are not zealots. They make decisions that are best for the success of their business and their clients' business. Successful partners go where the demand is.

  • Where Do Microsoft Great Plains Users Want to Go Today? To the Cloud.

    Remember the old Microsoft ad slogan, “Where do you want to go today?” If that question was asked of Microsoft Dynamics GP (Great Plains) users, you would hear the answer: “To the Cloud!” Great Plains users are fed up with business inefficiency, poor visibility and ongoing maintenance, integration and upgrade issues with Microsoft’s on-premise software. They are migrating to NetSuite, the world’s leading cloud ERP system, and you can hear why at theTuesday, July 24 webinar, “Why It’s Time to Upg...

  • SuiteWorld 2012: A View into the Best Conversations on Services of the Year

    NetSuite hosted SuiteWorld 2012 in San Francisco this past May, and once again our customers demonstrated the enthusiasm, creativity and passion that drives success in their business—and drives NetSuite to continue delivering solutions that improve business performance.

  • Yogi Berra and the Wholesale Distribution Industry

    Yogi Berra, the Hall of Fame New York Yankees catcher, might be more famous for his nonsensical aphorisms than for the .285 batting average, 358 home runs and 13 World Series rings he accumulated in the 1940s, ’50s and ’60s. One of my favorite Yogisms: “Ninety percent of the game is mental—the other half is physical.” Why is that a favorite? Because my role here at NetSuite covers the wholesale distribution industry, and Yogi’s blithe remark describes wholesale distribution to a tee.

  • Making THE Revenue Recognition Rule Work for Your Business

    More than two years have passed since the revenue recognition rule came into effect. Formally, I'm talking about the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) rule EITF 08-01, but because of the sweeping and significant changes it made to the way revenue from high-tech and multi-element products sales is recognized, at NetSuite we refer to it simply as the revenue recognition rule. Certainly, it has created new and complicated accounting obligations for a wide range of businesses—not just high...

  • Manufacturing The Cloud: 24 minutes between friends

    There has been much prognostication about NetSuite’s industry leading 99.5% uptime guarantee. As detractors and observers will rightly comment: "that translates to nearly 44 hours of unplanned downtime per year. That is almost 2 full days of ‘allowable’ outage".

  • Fine Wine Business Toasts IT Success with NetSuite Cloud

    The Guardian recently ran an article on cloud computing that highlighted the considerations companies need to make when selecting cloud services. In the article, LHK Fine Wines, supplier of fine and rare wines, describes how it has replaced numerous back-office systems with a single software-as-a-service (SaaS) package from NetSuite to manage financial accounting, inventory and order management, as well as its ecommerce website to “punch way above their weight.” In the article, Tom Mann, managin...

  • NetSuite’s Ability to Help with Conflict Resolution

    Some clients are tightening up their conflict policies, making it increasingly challenging for ad agencies to grow their businesses. According to AdAge, when Marriott recently chose to consolidate its buying power, it created a conflict policy that moved from a typical restriction against having Hilton as a client to a list of competitors ranked by tiers. To win the business, WPP’s MEC had to resign from some rival business in Asia Pacific.1 As agencies try to find revenue growth and as mar...
