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 CallidusCloud®, a leading provider of cloud-based sales
performance management, training, hiring and marketing software solutions, has
transformed its global business and IT efficiency by implementing NetSuite
OneWorld to replace an "IT nightmare" of 14 disparate business applications,
including ERP and CRM. The large-scale implementation utilizes NetSuite
OneWorld for real-time management and global financial consolidation across
seven subsidiaries in Europe, Asia and Australia and to automate
multi-currency transactions with customers in nearly 140 countries. NetSuite
OneWorld also supports the company's merger and acquisition strategy by
enabling rapid 30- to 45-day onboarding of new business entities, exceedingly
faster than deploying on-premise ERP software. CallidusCloud takes advantage
of NetSuite's sophisticated revenue recognition functionality tailored for
software companies to more effectively recognize complex, deferred and
multi-element sales and service revenue. The company also uses the NetSuite
OpenAir professional services automation (PSA) solution to streamline project
management, resource utilization and time and expense reporting across its
services team of 100+ consultants and integrators. For more information on

NetSuite OneWorld has improved end-to-end cross-enterprise business visibility
and performance for the fast-growing company. Spanning financials / ERP, CRM,
service delivery and more in a single, integrated global solution, NetSuite
has enabled CallidusCloud, based in Pleasanton, Calif., to realize a complete
360-degree view of its business, customers and partners, something that was
impossible with its previous patchwork of ERP, CRM, marketing, and a myriad of
additional tax and financial solutions along with other unintegrated, ad hoc
applications. With NetSuite, executives and managers make better, data-driven
decisions based on real-time business metrics and have the ability to
drill-down into customer, financial and opportunity detail. Additionally,
management gets enhanced reporting capabilities with anytime anywhere access
to key measures and reports through personalized real-time dashboards,
substantially reducing the need for IT involvement.

On a global basis, NetSuite OneWorld, with support for 190 currencies, 19
languages and automated tax compliance in more than 40 countries, gives
CallidusCloud new capabilities to manage its global subsidiaries, seamlessly
conduct international business and rapidly incorporate distributed business
entities into its corporate framework in the event of a merger or acquisition.
CallidusCloud is on track to reduce its monthly global financial close times
from seven days to five, while speeding its order-to-cash processes and
generating a highly visible and trusted data set that is important for
auditability and regulatory compliance. Across the business, CallidusCloud is
replacing the long delays of its previous application patchwork with on-demand
visibility into real-time data, while reducing infrastructure costs through
elimination of on-premise servers and back-up systems.

"We are experiencing rapid growth and needed a system that would enable us to
scale to the next level," said Scott Baumgarter, CallidusCloud Vice President
of Finance. "Using NetSuite to run all our business processes under one cloud
solution gives us the efficiency and visibility we need to support our
expanding business. NetSuite is very well versed in the complexity of revenue
recognition, and that is proving to be a very big benefit."

"NetSuite is our system of record and it's fantastic. Previously we had an
application patchwork that was an IT nightmare, and NetSuite completely
changed that," said Shamyo Chatterjee, CallidusCloud Chief Information
Officer. "We have a complete 360-degree view of our customers and our
business. We are very excited to take our implementation to the next level and
provide an enterprise view across all subsidiaries within the CallidusCloud

CallidusCloud's NetSuite deployment further strengthens a partnership between
the two companies in delivering an optimized solution for organizations to
improve their sales performance by seamlessly leveraging CallidusCloud
solutions on top of NetSuite's core financials / ERP and CRM suite. With the
joint solution, sales professionals can access real-time updates to quota and
target earnings performance within the context of each opportunity, helping to
improve sales execution, while the training solution enables sales people to
identify and coach on winning strategies as part of their daily tasks. Sales
operations and finance professionals can access critical sales force activity
and pipeline data to gain early insight into earnings and revenue results, and
then process post-sales data to close the loop with accurate quote performance
and incentive payments.
