New SuiteApp Helps Merchants Streamline Business and Achieve a Single View of Transactions, Customers and Financials
Melbourne, Australia—10 October 2012—NetSuite Inc. (NYSE: N), the industry's leading provider of cloud-based financials / ERP software suites, today announced that NetSuite partner Retail Anywhere has released a new point-of-sale (POS) SuiteApp for the Australian market, giving Australian retailers new capabilities for POS transaction processing and integration of transactional and customer data with the NetSuite SuiteCommerce platform and the core NetSuite ERP/CRM cloud solution. Previously available only in North America, the SuiteApp release enables Australian merchants to capture POS data atop the NetSuite SuiteCommerce platform and build a single view of transactions and individual customers in the core NetSuite ERP/CRM application. The Retail Anywhere SuiteApp is being unveiled by Retail Anywhere CEO Branden Jenkins at NetSuite Cloud Tour events in Sydney on October 9 and Melbourne on October 11.
The POS solution from Retail Anywhere, based in Paso Robles, California, introduces powerful POS functionality to SuiteCommerce, NetSuite's commerce-aware cloud platform that enables B2C and B2B merchants to manage transactions regardless of customer touchpoint (brick-and-mortar stores, online, smartphones, tablets and call centres). Operating directly on the core NetSuite ERP and CRM application and featuring an advanced web storefront, SuiteCommerce is designed to address the limitations and complexity of first-generation commerce systems, enabling businesses to streamline business processes, grow relationships using built-in marketing tools and immerse customers in a richly interactive and intuitive shopping experience, all with the benefit of a central system to manage transactions with consumers and other businesses.
"We are currently working with several retailers in Australia to deliver an integrated NetSuite POS solution," said Jenkins. "Several of these retailers have already been using NetSuite, but have been looking for a robust SuiteApp from an experienced retail POS company for quite some time. We are thrilled to be bringing our NetSuite POS SuiteApp to Australia."
Retail Anywhere's Australia release adds to a growing number of SuiteApps (available at www.suiteapp.com) from innovative NetSuite partners that strengthen SuiteCommerce's position as a next-generation Commerce-as-a-Service (CaaS) system for conducting business across multiple touchpoints while providing merchants with a comprehensive understanding of their customers, transactions and financials. Retail Anywhere is one of several technology partners to participate in the NetSuite Cloud Tour providing support for NetSuite's SuiteCommerce platform, with Jenkins showcasing how Retail Anywhere delivers an integrated solution to multi-channel, specialty retailers with brick-and-mortar stores. Additional C-level executives from NetSuite and its partners will be at the Australia Cloud Tour events to offer insights to help Australian retailers make the most of their cloud investment and take their businesses to the next level in multi-channel operations.
"SuiteCommerce plays an integral role in the foundation of NetSuite's CaaS initiative to streamline our customers' commerce activities with their consumers, partners and vendors," said Andy Lloyd, General Manager of Commerce Products for NetSuite. "A POS solution fully integrated with NetSuite delivers a unified, multi-channel customer experience, enabling retailers to meet customer demands, which can ultimately drive sales. Offering this solution in Australia is a significant milestone."
Besides Australia, Retail Anywhere's NetSuite POS SuiteApp is available in the US and Canada. With real-time, bi-directional integration with NetSuite, Retail Anywhere gives retailers a wide range of POS capabilities including employee management, CRM, and checkout screens on both traditional retail POS hardware and mobile tablet devices.
