NetSuite's new program for Sage Software customers

NetSuite Inc, a leading vendor of on-demand, integrated business software suites that provide Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), Customer Relationship Management (CRM) and Ecommerce software to mid-market enterprises and divisions of large companies, announced a new program for Sage Software customers interested in switching from their current Sage products in order to experience the productivity benefits of NetSuite and Software as a Service (SaaS) computing.

The NetSuite Sage Switch program guarantees Sage customers at least 50% off their first year NetSuite subscription when they switch to one or more NetSuite on-demand applications. The program, which is available to all Sage customers in good standing and covers all Sage products, also offers 100 hours of free professional services that can be applied to NetSuite's shared implementation offering. The NetSuite Sage Switch offer is only available through June 30, 2009. More details about the program.

This new program from NetSuite comes on the heels of Sage's most recent problems with the beta test version of its SaaS offering, Sage Live. Recently, a serious security flaw was uncovered in Sage Live, forcing Sage to shut down its beta trial. ZDNet blogger Phil Wainwright provided some expert perspective on this latest Sage Live problem in his blog post entitled: Sage Shows Why Bigcos Can't Be Trusted with SaaS.

Wrote Wainwright: "I'm not privy to what went on within Sage during the development and unveiling of its new offering, but it seems clear that the project was being directed by people with no practical experience of running business-critical on-demand offerings, and no such advice was sought (or if it was, it wasn't taken seriously). What kind of thought processes allows a product to see the light of day without that kind of scrutiny?"

NetSuite would like Sage customers to consider the NetSuite on-demand business management system as an alternative to Sage Live, considering NetSuite is available now and is already in use by more than 6,000 customers.

A recent report from the analyst firm Saugatuck (Great Expectations: SaaS Strategies in the Finance Organization) identified 'explosive growth' of SaaS in key financial functions by the end of 2010. SaaS applications and suites enable employees to work any time and anywhere — and get the latest accounting innovations without the pain of upgrading. NetSuite has been delivering SaaS finance applications for 10 years.

Unlike Sage, NetSuite has only a single code base to maintain and innovate in operating its NetSuite on-demand service — so NetSuite customers get all the benefit of a highly focused R&D effort designed to help them leverage and grow their investment.

NetSuite anticipates that Sage customers will find a lot to like about the NetSuite offer as they seek opportunities in this economic downturn to realize value across their operations.
