NetSuite OneWorld Is The First Production SaaS Business Suite To Earn Financial Certification In Germany

June 29, 2009 by · Comments Off on NetSuite OneWorld Is The First Production SaaS Business Suite To Earn Financial Certification In Germany 

Webmaster ToolsSAN MATEO, Calif. — NetSuite Inc. (NYSE: N), a leading vendor of cloud computing and integrated business software suites, today announced that NetSuite and NetSuite OneWorld have become the first generally available Software as a Service (SaaS) business management suites to be certified by the German Institute of Auditors (Institut der Wirtchaftsprüfer in Deutschland e.V.). The certification validates NetSuite suitability for use in regional divisions of multinational companies with operations in Germany, or for use by companies headquartered in Germany. NetSuite OneWorld is a complete business application with capabilities that span business functions across the enterprise from Customer Relationship Management (CRM) to Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and Ecommerce , and offers businesses the opportunity to lower operating costs and eliminate capital expenditures associated with on-premise systems by moving key business processes to the Cloud.
