WAC Consulting Group ( www.waccg.com), based in Boston, MA with sixteen offices nationwide, realized opportunities in the cloud were outpacing the market when cloud emerged as the hottest topic at a recent conference held by one of its on-premise software manufacturers. With a strong focus in wholesale/distribution, manufacturing and professional services, WACCG wanted a cloud computing applications partner with a solution designed for the future of its business. The firm signed on with the NetSuite Solution Provider Program, impressed by the comprehensive partner support program as well as the extensive features offered to customers in the key verticals WACCG serves. Knowing NetSuite can be easily customized both by business users and implementation professionals, without resorting to costly dedicated developers or master VAR arrangements, played a crucial role in WACCG's decision. WACCG also responded to market forces. Many companies, particularly those with younger executives, will not even consider a solution unless it has been designed from the ground up for the cloud. "When we see so many prospects out there who are only looking at cloud solutions, we had to align with the best solutions in the cloud," said Tom White, WAC Consulting Group Partner. "I fully expect NetSuite to be at least 50 percent of my office's business in the years to come."ISM ( www.goism.com) , based in Portland, OR with six offices nationwide, has been one of the leading experts in Sage eCommerce solutions for years. After establishing a strong reputation designing powerful eCommerce presences for complex businesses, ISM saw additional opportunity in the NetSuite cloud, which not only provides a powerful eCommerce platform but also integrated ERP and CRM capabilities. The single-database solution and end-to-end business functionality in NetSuite enables ISM to provide higher-value consultative services to clients, taking full advantage of the out-of-the-box integration between eCommerce and other business operations. ISM passed up other cloud solutions, seeing them as too narrowly focused or burdened by a lack of name recognition. Seeing that customers today demand more sophisticated ERP solutions, ISM also sees value in NetSuite's comprehensive dashboards and fully integrated workflow controls. NetSuite's multinational and multi-currency capabilities also make it easy for ISM to position the solution as suitable for true global competition—a key consideration for ISM's clients outside the U.S. "Our clients look at us as advisors, so we wanted a true cloud solution that would ensure the best long-term solution for our client businesses," says Stuart Blumenthal, ISM vice president. "NetSuite is a recognized name, and gives us the ability to provide a global solution without a global price."
