Netsuite has launched an iPhone app to allow its users access the web services via iPhone. Netsuite, a cloud-based business management software provider, competes with entities like salesforce.com in the market place.
As more and more business and enterprises are allowing iPhones into their infrastructure, it is a good move by Netsuite to provide its services to customers on the go. The app is on App Store and it is free
Mobile business functionality enabled by NetSuite includes:
- NetSuite Dashboards including KPIs, report snapshots, trend graphs, scorecards, reminders, and recent records. The dashboards are interactive, allowing users to drill down and explore trends with the touch of a finger.
- NetSuite Calendar with support for accepting or declining events and marking tasks complete.
- Lead, Prospect & Customer records tailored to mobile sales, field service and executive leadership, including access to associated contacts, marketing campaigns, opportunities, quotes, orders, purchase history, financial history, cases, and issues.
- Productivity tools that leverage native capabilities of the device, such as click-to-call from any NetSuite record containing a phone number, click-to-email from any NetSuite record containing an e-mail address, and click-to-map (via Google Maps) from any NetSuite record containing a physical address.
"This is a great release by NetSuite," said Elliott Rabin, President, Ridout Plastics Co. Inc. (www.eplastics.com), a plastics manufacturer based in San Diego, CA since 1914. "Access is very fast overall, and trend graphs are much faster than through a browser. From a CEO view, I can see my KPIs and can get top 10 information quickly – by sales, customers, sales reps, etc. Like in a browser, the app lets me find a customer quickly through searching – and I'm one who loves 'recent records' for quick access to information. The iPhone application adds tremendous value to my NetSuite experience."
