It’s a Wonderful Cloud
Jim McGeever, COO of NetSuite
15 May 2014
Watch Jim McGeever, COO of NetSuite, and invited fans of the Cloud from the Fortune 5 million to the Fortune 500, as they share their perspectives at SuiteWorld 2014 on what Cloud ERP has meant for their business.
Phil Wainewright writes about how businesses tend to choose Cloud systems in their need for speed of deployment.
Last week at SuiteWorld, I met with Andrew Peddie, managing director of FirstHosted, the most experienced NetSuite partner in EMEA, with eighty deployments under its belt since it was founded in April 2006. A representative customer is document management software vendor Alfresco, which is growing at between 35-50% a year and already preparing for an IPO. Peddie said that FirstHosted generally begins a NetSuite deployment with out-of-the-box functionality so that the client can get up-and-running quickly.
“You can do that very, very rapidly,” he said. “We don’t want to lose that strength by getting the whole project bogged down. We go for a bare-bones implementation and then we stack additional functionality afterwards.” What then happens is that the SI continues to work with the client as they grow into the product and adapt it more closely to their needs. “Generally speaking there is an ongoing relationship over a number of years,” said Peddie. So the engagement is still multi-year, even if the deployment happens early on in a matter of weeks.
SAN MATEO, Calif., May 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — NetSuite Inc. (NYSE: N), the industry’s leading provider of cloud-based financials / ERP software suites, today announced that it is has been named the fastest growing financial management software vendor globally in 2012, according to the latest research on Financial Management Software (FMS) from Gartner Inc., Market Share: All Software Markets, Worldwide, 2012, published on March 29, 2013. NetSuite has been named the fastest growing financial management software vendor in North America for the last four years and in 2012, became the fastest growing vendor on a global basis, according to the leading industry analyst firm.
Parcel delivery and courier service comparison site World Options has launched a franchise model which eliminates many of the associated accounting costs for franchises, using cloud technology.
World Options, which has been running the successful comparison and booking site since it was established in 2004, is using First Hosted’s FranchiseSuite to provide global payment processing and financial management, sales tracking and marketing, multi-currency and language capabilities across its entire franchise network. This means that franchisees will have a complete toolset to manage their franchise anywhere in Europe via the internet, and will assist World Options with its objective of recruiting 30 franchisees over the next year.
Stewart Butler, managing director of World Options explains, “Our innovative site has proven an industry hit since its launch back in 2004 and as a result we are keen to grow the business across the UK and into Europe. The problem with many traditional franchise models is that once franchisees have paid their fee to operate their part of the business, they have additional costs thrown into the mix like accounting support, IT infrastructure and website design.
“By implementing FranchiseSuite, we can view and share accurate real-time financial data and can scale rapidly to accommodate new franchise partners. The cost is minimal as they pay on a Software as a Service (SaaS) basis.”
Andrew Peddie, managing director of cloud specialist First Hosted and creator of FranchiseSuite adds, “We are very pleased to be working with World Options to enable the business’s expansion in this way. FranchiseSuite is set to create a revolution in the way franchisors and franchisees build their businesses. World class functionality, security, and scalability offers rapid expansion without ever losing sight of vital business intelligence and provides them with the peace to focus on building their franchise business with having to be reliant on an IT team or hardware and infrastructure.”
