SAN MATEO, Calif., Jan. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- NetSuite Inc. (NYSE: N), the industry's leading provider of cloud-based financials / ERP software suites, today announced that Matrixx Initiatives has accelerated its financial processes, improved business analytics and visibility, and reduced its IT costs since implementing NetSuite. Matrixx, headquartered in Bridgewater, N.J., is the maker of the Zicam brand of cold remedies, available at Wal-Mart, Target, CVS and other major retailers. The company has reduced its software licensing costs by up to 75 percent and eliminated its in-house servers and the need for a full-time IT staffer to perform data backup since transitioning from JD Edwards, its previous on-premise ERP installation.

Monthly financial close times have been cut from 12 days to five as Matrixx progresses towards the goal of a three-day close. In addition, the company uses NetSuite to support its cost-efficient business outsourcing model, managing eight partner companies in the areas of contract manufacturing, sales, inventory and distribution, and accounts receivable.
