First Hosted Announces Contact Management SuiteApp for NetSuite’s Cloud Computing Platform

New SuiteApp Can Help NetSuite Customers Increase Productivity And Boost Customer Service By Managing Contacts Via Mobile Phone

San Francisco, May 12, 2011 – First Hosted Ltd, a United Kingdom-based partner for NetSuite, today announced Full Contact, a new contact management NetSuite Application for the NetSuite SuiteCloud Computing Platform. The solution performs automatic caller recognition, remote logging, and other functions for mobile phones. Built using NetSuite’s SuiteCloud development platform, the new SuiteApp can help NetSuite customers increase productivity and improve customer service for sales and marketing representatives who use mobile phones.

The announcement was made today at SuiteWorld 2011, NetSuite’s inaugural conference designed for NetSuite customers, solution providers, independent software providers, developers and system integrators. SuiteWorld 2011 is being held in San Francisco.

NetSuite’s SuiteCloud is a comprehensive offering of on-demand products, development tools, and services designed to help customers and commercial software developers take advantage of the significant economic benefits of cloud computing. The complete SuiteCloud offering includes NetSuite’s multi-tenant, always-on SaaS infrastructure; the NetSuite Business Suite of applications for Accounting/ERP, CRM and Ecommerce; and comprehensive development tools to create cloud-based business applications on top of NetSuite.

“The integration of Full Contact with NetSuite provides an unbeatable solution for any business with staff working remotely or simply away from their PC,” says Andrew Peddie, Managing Director, First Hosted. “No longer is there a need to be disconnected from the full CRM system – it’s all there on the mobile handset.”

The solution gives users access to customer details 24-7 via a mobile phone. It lets them identify incoming calls prior to answering, and permits access to customer/prospect status details and log calls via the user’s mobile phone interface.

Working with NetSuite

The NetSuite Application gives users fully automatic and integrated contact management for NetSuite and NetSuite CRM from their mobile phone. It runs in the background of the mobile phone and displays customer information when the phone rings. Real-time information is collected from the user’s NetSuite account and shows in seconds. With a quick glance at the phone, a user is fully up-to-date with a sales situation, making it easier to give customers excellent service.

“Smartphones are becoming the new desktops,” says Guido Haarmans, Vice President of Developer Programs and Business Development at NetSuite. “NetSuite’s on-demand model makes customer information available to every connected device instantly and with Full Contact that data is now integrated with what smartphones can do as well: making phone calls.”
