NetSuite OneWorld, with support for 190 currencies, 19 languages and automated tax compliance in over 50 countries, enables Shaw to manage its global subsidiaries and seamlessly conduct international business. Shaw Industries is leveraging NetSuite OneWorld to manage its 10 international subsidiaries with real-time visibility and global financial consolidation and reporting. NetSuite's cloud solution is enabling Shaw to aggressively pursue its global growth objectives at a fraction of the time and capital cost required of an on-premise ERP alternative, while positioning it to accelerate time to value of any future overseas acquisitions.
McKaig noted that Shaw Industries' Australian subsidiary was using NetSuite before the company acquired it several years ago. "They vouched they had no problems with performance or response times and that gave us additional confidence," McKaig said.
