SAN MATEO, Calif., Jan. 31, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- NetSuite Inc. (NYSE: N), the
industry's leading provider of cloud-based financials / ERP software suites,
today announced that WAC Consulting Group, ISM, Sikich and SD Mayer &
Associates have joined the NetSuite Solution Provider Program. Value Added
Resellers (VARs) continue to embrace the NetSuite cloud to support their
growth. These high-profile VARs each bring a history of proven success serving
regional and international clients with on-premise ERP systems such as
Microsoft Dynamics Great Plains and Sage, and have all elected to meet the
tremendous demand for cloud solutions by embracing the NetSuite business
management suite. After carefully considering the options for managing
end-to-end business operations in the cloud, these successful companies each
made a clear decision to offer their customers and prospects the world's #1
cloud ERP suite from NetSuite. For more information on the NetSuite Solution

"It is clearer than ever that the growing demand for cloud services is
reshaping the way VARs view their future," said Craig West, Vice President of
Channel Sales at NetSuite. "Our new partners are declaring NetSuite's
combination of cloud solutions and partner programs as the clear platform of
choice to enable this change. We welcome the opportunity to succeed

Launched in 2002, the NetSuite Solution Provider Program is the industry's
leading cloud channel partner program, providing hundreds of channel partners
with a cloud solution to offer prospective customers and grow their businesses
as well as industry-leading margins and incentive programs, like the NetSuite
SP 100, which pays 100% of first year NetSuite sales revenues. 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. Designed to help solution providers transform their business
model to fully capitalize on the revenue growth opportunity of the NetSuite
cloud, the NetSuite Solution Provider Program delivers unprecedented benefits
that begin during recruitment and range from business planning, sales,
marketing and professional services enablement, to training and education.

The new partners that have joined the NetSuite Solution Provider Program

WAC Consulting Group (, based in Boston, MA with sixteen offices
nationwide, realized opportunities in the cloud were outpacing the market when
cloud emerged as the hottest topic at a recent conference held by one of its
on-premise software manufacturers. With a strong focus in
wholesale/distribution, manufacturing and professional services, WACCG wanted
a cloud computing applications partner with a solution designed for the future
of its business. The firm signed on with the NetSuite Solution Provider
Program, impressed by the comprehensive partner support program as well as the
extensive features offered to customers in the key verticals WACCG serves.
Knowing NetSuite can be easily customized both by business users and
implementation professionals, without resorting to costly dedicated developers
or master VAR arrangements, played a crucial role in WACCG's decision. WACCG
also responded to market forces. Many companies, particularly those with
younger executives, will not even consider a solution unless it has been
designed from the ground up for the cloud. "When we see so many prospects out
there who are only looking at cloud solutions, we had to align with the best
solutions in the cloud," said Tom White, WAC Consulting Group Partner. "I
fully expect NetSuite to be at least 50 percent of my office's business in the
years to come."

ISM (, based in Portland, OR with six offices nationwide, has
been one of the leading experts in Sage eCommerce solutions for years. After
establishing a strong reputation designing powerful eCommerce presences for
complex businesses, ISM saw additional opportunity in the NetSuite cloud,
which not only provides a powerful eCommerce platform but also integrated ERP
and CRM capabilities. The single-database solution and end-to-end business
functionality in NetSuite enables ISM to provide higher-value consultative
services to clients, taking full advantage of the out-of-the-box integration
between eCommerce and other business operations. ISM passed up other cloud
solutions, seeing them as too narrowly focused or burdened by a lack of name
recognition. Seeing that customers today demand more sophisticated ERP
solutions, ISM also sees value in NetSuite's comprehensive dashboards and
fully integrated workflow controls. NetSuite's multinational and
multi-currency capabilities also make it easy for ISM to position the solution
as suitable for true global competition—a key consideration for ISM's clients
outside the U.S. "Our clients look at us as advisors, so we wanted a true
cloud solution that would ensure the best long-term solution for our client
businesses," says Stuart Blumenthal, ISM vice president. "NetSuite is a
recognized name, and gives us the ability to provide a global solution without
a global price."

Sikich (, based in Naperville, IL, has evolved over several
decades to become a professional services firm that offers accounting,
advisory, investment banking, technology and managed services to customers in
the professional services, construction, manufacturing, distribution and
government sectors, to name a few. Sikich has a thriving technology and
managed services practice around several leading business systems, but
recently recognized that NetSuite provides crucial advantages, as the market's
recognized leader in enterprise cloud solutions. Because NetSuite's brand is
so strong, Sikich frequently heard customers ask for it. As many as 80 percent
of prospects were asking Sikich about NetSuite, and the potential for strong
recurring revenue combined with opportunities for accounting services, supply
chain advisory and other business support services made joining the NetSuite
Solution Provider Program an easy decision. "Customers like choices, and
Sikich has deep experience as a professional advisory firm which can properly
assess client needs and recommend the best solution for those long-term
needs," says Jim Drumm, partner-in-charge of ERP and CRM sales at Sikich.
"NetSuite supports our goals to have enormous reach with local support, to
combine multiple disciplines, and provide our clients the best solutions and

SD Mayer & Associates ( is a new accounting, consulting and
wealth management firm started by the co-founder of the largest
California-based accounting and consulting firm, Burr Pilger Mayer (BPM).
Given the opportunity to launch a new firm 25 years after the successful
launch of BPM, Stephen D. (Steve) Mayer, founder and managing partner of SD
Mayer, carefully considered the technology and expertise he wanted. He had
seen many companies become trapped in a hairball of a half-dozen business
management systems with no communication between them. He made the decision to
build not only the new company's technology consulting practice around
NetSuite as the core business tool, but to build his own company's
infrastructure on NetSuite as well. The open architecture and comprehensive
capabilities of NetSuite enables SD Mayer to extend NetSuite with more than
twenty-five years of expertise in creating successful client solutions.
Together, SD Mayer and NetSuite ensure that clients never face the burden to
manage separate general ledger, time-and-billing, payroll, scheduling, CRM and
client services systems. Layering NetSuite's industry leading Cloud
ERP/Financial solution onto a foundation of more than twenty-five years of
expertise in creating successful client solutions, the company is confident of
the business opportunities ahead. "We're going to launch in markets nobody has
touched with cloud solutions, because we know that people want a solution that
provides scalability, that will help them differentiate, and make it possible
to run the company on dashboards," Mayer says. "Nobody else does that, so
we're leading the charge."

Today, more than 12,000 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 suites for divisions of large enterprises and
mid-sized organizations seeking to upgrade their antiquated client/server ERP
systems. NetSuite excels at streamlining business operations, as demonstrated
by a recent Gartner study naming NetSuite as the fastest growing top 10
financial management systems vendor in the world. NetSuite continues its
success in delivering the best cloud ERP/financial suites to businesses around
the world, enabling them to lower IT costs significantly while increasing
productivity, as the global adoption of the cloud accelerates.
