NetSuite Intros Suite of Applications for iPhone and iPod Touch
By Patrick Barnard, Senior Web Editor, TMCnet
The integrated suite of applications, which is now available on the iTunes App Store, provides NetSuite users who are also iPhone (News - Alert) users with real-time dashboards that deliver key ERP, CRM and e-commerce operational data.
NetSuite said in a release that the suite, which is available for free, was downloaded more than 1,000 times in the first two weeks it was available.
NetSuite says its customers can now access NetSuite functionality via a rich interface designed to run natively on iPhone and iPod touch. If a company has implemented custom fields, custom records, role-based security or custom dashboard elements in their NetSuite account, they will all be seamlessly reflected in the NetSuite app.
SAP has announced that maintenance for R/3 V4.6 will end as of March 2010; and maintenance for SAP R/3 4.7 will be extended, but at a higher cost. These changes will affect approximately 70 percent of SAP users who now face the difficult decision of whether to pay increased costs for maintenance, or upgrade to SAP ERP 6.0.
As part of the program, NetSuite is offering an enhanced version of its Business ByNetSuite program for SAP customers, initially launched in November 2008. This version of Business ByNetSuite offers SAP R/3 customers a total migration package in year one of their subscription, including all license fees, implementation and support, equal to customers’ annual maintenance cost with SAP. Thereafter, as long as they remain with NetSuite, the program provides customers with a fixed 50 percent off NetSuite’s then-current list price for an annual subscription. The enhanced Business ByNetSuite program is valid worldwide through the fourth quarter of 2009.
