SAN MATEO, Calif. and LONDON, Nov. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- NetSuite Inc. (NYSE: N), the industry's leading provider of cloud-based financials / ERP and omnichannel commerce software suites, today announced that its UK-based customers have voted NetSuite as the winner of the Best Financials and ERP Software category in AccountingWEB's Software Satisfaction Awards 2013. The award tops a year of success for NetSuite, which claimed the Best Cloud Infrastructure and Financial Management Solution in the 2013 SIIA CODiE Awards, the 2013 CUSTOMER magazine CRM Excellence Award, and was named by Gartner as the fastest growing Top 10 Financial Management vendor on a global basis. For more information about NetSuite's full list of awards for 2013, please visit www.netsuite.co.uk/awards.
UK software users awarded NetSuite the ERP crown over seven other shortlisted entries including Sage 200, Microsoft Dynamics GP and SAP Business One. NetSuite's solution was praised for its comprehensive functionality and sophistication, as well as the high level of customer support it provides to end users. Eighty-seven per cent of users gave NetSuite either a 9 or 10 rating – demonstrating its sustained and tireless focus on customer satisfaction.
The award comes on the heels of a host of companies voting with their feet by moving from Sage's on-premise business solutions to NetSuite. Among those companies switching were international taxi app Hailo, an award-winning children's travel product manufacturer, retailer Trunki, and SOI Group Ltd, a managerial holding company for the marine companies at the University of St Andrews; all of which have abandoned Sage's on-premise offering in favour of NetSuite's cloud solution.

Pete Daffern, President of NetSuite EMEA and EVP of Verticals said: "In recent years, we've seen a big increase in the importance our customers are placing on functionality and scalability so that they can focus on growing the business, rather than worrying about running their internal systems. Because we offer a 'true' cloud solution we're much better placed to meet these expectations, with exceptional functionality extending across all platforms including mobile devices, and deliver a single source of responsive, capable customer support. Winning this award demonstrates that NetSuite is able to both understand and fulfil the needs of today's organisations.""We'd like to take this opportunity to thank all our customers in the UK for their continued support, and look forward to an equally positive year in 2014," concluded Pete Daffern.
