NetSuite recently announced its new partners and shared some of the firm’s technology deployments by local customers.
Two local IT strategy and implementation consultancies based in Manila namely Kaisa Consulting and Questronix Corporation joined the NetSuite Solution Provider program, according to James Dantow, NetSuite vice president for worldwide support and general manager for the Philippines.
Like many organizations in the Philippines, Netsuite’s new partners and customers are looking for IT solutions that offer low cost, rapid implementation, process automation and real-time visibility across the business, Dantow said.
Kaisa Consulting is a provider of integrated enterprise solutions and business process outsourcing (BPO) services for the small to medium enterprises (SMEs), while Questronix is a local systems integrator.
The two firms added NetSuite’s cloud-based business management suite to their respective solutions portfolio.
According to Kaisa managing director Lucky De Leon, they chose NetSuite to cater to SMEs who are looking for cost-effective and easy to deploy solutions.
NetSuite also touted successful deployments by three of its customers including fastfood retailer Big Chill, Coca-Cola Foundation Philippines, and the Far Eastern University (FEU).
Big Chill and FEU both deployed NetSuite OneWorld. The fastfood retailer used it for its company growth and expansion plans while FEU applied it to support the university’s mission-critical financial processes.
Coca-Cola Foundation Philippines, meanwhile, upgraded to NetSuite to help run its core business processes “all within one integrated software system and without a dedicated IT staff.”
FEU chief financial officer Juan Miguel Montinola said NetSuite gave the university “access to vital data anytime and anywhere that can now be analyzed.”
NetSuite said Coca Cola Foundation Philippines received the NetSuite solution as a software grant from the NetSuite.org corporate citizenship program.
“We’ve been seeing huge momentum across the region as word spreads of the value that organizations derive with cloud ERP (enterprise resource planning),” Dantow said.
