NetSuite Reports 50 Percent Year-Over-Year Channel Growth
Forget the sluggish channel sales numbers reported by old-school enterprise software makers. Cloud computing ERP stalwart NetSuite is on a channel tear. This week NetSuite said sales through its North America channel are up 50 percent year-over-year.
In May the company recruited Blytheco, one of Sage's top VARs, to launch a cloud computing practice based on NetSuite's ERP suite. NetSuite also enlisted the accounting firm Grant Thornton LLP to become a NetSuite systems integrator.
"They're making that change," said NetSuite CEO Zach Nelson of the channel's cloud computing adoption rate. "It's hard not to be excited about what we're seeing in the indirect model right now."
