NetSuite Inc., a provider of cloud-based financials/ERP software suites, announced the latest technology and financial consulting services firms to join the NetSuite Solution Provider Program. These firms include SaaS Consulting Group, Protelo, Rose Financial Services, OSF Global Services, and Robinson Consulting Group, which all have seen the surge in demand for cloud solutions from clients who desire the efficiencies, flexibility, and cost benefits of the cloud.
Partnering with NetSuite enables these firms to capitalize on the growing market opportunities in the cloud and gives them access to a development platform and a line-up of cloud business management solutions, including NetSuite's core integrated suite that combines ERP/financials, customer relationship management (CRM), Services Resource Planning (SRP), Ecommerce software, and NetSuite OneWorld - a cloud computing solution that enables multinational and multi-subsidiary companies to manage their global financial consolidation and business operations.
"At NetSuite, we pride ourselves on creating the premier programs and ecosystems to foster the growth and success of our partners. It's very exciting and validating to announce these new and expanded relationships," said Craig West, NetSuite vice president of Channel Sales. "These leaders in financial services, management practices, and cloud computing strengthen our network and our mission to enhance businesses worldwide with modern, efficient, flexible, and scalable enterprise solutions mutually delivered by NetSuite and only the most valuable partners."
As NetSuite Solution Providers, the firms below can draw on their respective vertical domain knowledge and best practices, delivering end-to-end services ranging from deal qualification, customer acquisition, implementation, customization to customer support, and service.
- SaaS Consulting Group, a business advisory and consulting firm based in Austin, Texas, joined the NetSuite Solution Provider Program to help clients improve business processes by leveraging established and innovative cloud technology. Rapid implementations and word of mouth have made it possible for SaaS Consulting Group to attract and retain a roster of fast-growing clients interested in modernizing their systems and replacing costly, stand-alone systems. "After working with NetSuite in sales, finance, and operation roles at my previous company, and seeing the productivity benefits and increased security available in the cloud, I knew that we needed to be part of this growth," said Rob Gottschalk, SaaS Consulting Group CEO. "The NetSuite value proposition is very obvious to forward-thinking organizations. Our customers are realizing these benefits within weeks of implementation."
- Protelo, a technology services firm based in Folsom, California, joined the NetSuite Solution Provider Program to establish NetSuite as its business application partner.

The complex, multinational businesses that were once forced to run on mainframe systems or face multiyear implementations of outdated on-premise software can now modernize their operations with Protelo's expertise and NetSuite's flexible cloud architecture in a fraction of the time and cost. Protelo President Christer Johansson said, "NetSuite's vision for multinational markets, languages, currencies, and taxation rules, and the upmarket growth of NetSuite OneWorld are particularly appealing to us."
