SAN MATEO, Calif., April 23, 2013

SAN MATEO, Calif., April 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- NetSuite Inc. (NYSE: N), the
industry's leading provider of cloud-based financials / ERP software suites,
today announced that Data Physics Corp., a manufacturer of vibration and sound
testing and measurement solutions for such industries as aerospace, consumer
electronics, automotive, power generation, civil engineering and others, has
reached a 10-year milestone in running its global business on NetSuite. Since
becoming one of the first manufacturers to adopt cloud business management in
2003, Data Physics has seen nearly a four-fold increase in revenue while
growing its business across North America, Europe and Asia. NetSuite has given
the company, founded in 1984 by a pair of former Hewlett-Packard engineers and
headquartered in San Jose, Calif., an efficient and scalable platform for
growth that handles diverse business processes including manufacturing,
multi-location inventory management, CRM and sales force automation,
financials, and management of global offices in the U.K., China, India, France
and Germany. Over its 10 years on NetSuite, Data Physics has realized
significant productivity and process improvement gains as it grew its business
among such multinational customers as GE, Apple, Boeing, Toyota, Exxon Mobil,
Whirlpool, Siemens, Panasonic, Ford Motor, General Motors, IBM, Lockheed
Martin and many others.

Struggling with the manual work, poor data visibility and inefficiencies of
its previous on-premise infrastructure comprised of Solomon for financials,
ACT! Goldmine for CRM and a collection of Microsoft Access databases, Data
Physics became an early adopter of cloud business management software as it
envisioned the improvements it could achieve with an integrated cloud ERP
system and industry-specific manufacturing capabilities. The ability to
eliminate in-house servers, back-up systems, software and IT personnel in
favor of a single unified system for core business operations was a key driver
in Data Physics' selection of NetSuite. Initially focused on manufacturing
electronics-oriented testing and measurement equipment, Data Physics has since
evolved to add large industrial shaker machines designed to enable
manufacturers to test the ability to withstand vibration in a range of
products, from the Apple iPhone to automobiles to satellites. Today, the
NetSuite Manufacturing Edition helps Data Physics run production in Corona in
Southern California and East Sussex, U.K. NetSuite's manufacturing
capabilities for subassembly and work orders help Data Physics keep production
on track with real-time visibility into orders, components and costs, while
the application helps streamline procurement of hundreds of diverse components
from hundreds of suppliers. The recent addition of editing work orders has
become a key component in the manufacturing of Data Physics' core product, a
large, made-to-order machine assembled in pieces. Before editing work orders,
Data Physics used a manual approach to work orders, making it difficult to
track the order. The new capability facilitates the manufacture of the product
in the U.S. and the EU. Additionally, multi-location inventory management
provides visibility and precision for both physical and virtual locations
across three continents while NetSuite OneWorld provides consolidated
reporting.

"NetSuite has given us much more clarity to where we are in manufacturing and
our costs so we always know what assemblies we have in which locations. Having
one unified system to run our international business has enabled us to be more
efficient across the board," said Sabine Castagnet, Data Physics COO. "We are
committed to the cloud and true believers in NetSuite."

Data Physics is a member of the NetSuite Manufacturing Customer Advisory
Board, a group of select companies that work collaboratively with NetSuite to
continue evolving industry-specific functionality in the NetSuite
Manufacturing Edition, a complete cloud solution for manufacturing resource
planning, integrated inventory and dynamic replenishment, warehouse
management, financial accounting and costing, customer and partner
relationship management, and eCommerce. Recent functional additions for
standard costing, demand planning and work-in-progress (WIP) accounting build
on core capabilities for production engineering, shop floor and project
control, multi-site and multi-division operations, lot and serial control,
bill of materials and assembly builds and more.

NetSuite OneWorld gives Data Physics a global business solution to manage
offices in the U.K., France, Germany, India and China, as well as three
offices in the U.S., with multi-currency conversion capabilities for
transactions in the British pound, Euro, Indian rupee and U.S. dollar. The
company's global sales team uses NetSuite CRM to manage the
lead-to-order-to-cash cycle, taking advantage of a single comprehensive view
of customers and opportunities, while sales forecasting helps Data Physics
align resources, materials and production to demand. NetSuite's unified data
set helps streamline compliance with export regulations, while dashboards with
key business metrics give executives and managers real-time visibility into
operations and financials with drill-down to transactional detail for
data-driven decision-making. With no in-house IT systems to maintain, Data
Physics is avoiding several full-time IT personnel who would be required with
an on-premise approach while gaining the flexibility to access critical
business information from anywhere over the web.

Today, more than 16,000 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 financials/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 in 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/financials suites to
businesses around the world, enabling them to lower IT costs significantly
while increasing productivity, as the global adoption of the cloud is
accelerating.
