One Application to Run Your Distribution Business

In contrast, NetSuite Wholesale Distribution Edition lets you manage your entire business with one integrated application. NetSuite is an intelligent, integrated, customizable application that will unify your business processes, increase visibility for better decision-making, and extend processes to your customers and channel partners.

The Software-as-a-Service Advantage: Cost of Ownership

With Software as a Service (SaaS), the economics of managing the technical aspects of a business change radically. The software is hosted by the provider, allowing businesses like yours to use sophisticated software applications over the Internet. This gives you better access to more robust solutions with greater security, management, and economy than most mid-market companies could ever purchase and manage in-house.
According to The Gartner Group, the SaaS model can reduce total cost of ownership by 50 percent or more. In addition to eliminating the initial start-up costs of purchasing traditional licensed software and the servers to run it, SaaS solutions make it easier to plan and budget reliably, since your subscriptions are based on your usage—
which means you don’t pay for functionality you don’t want or don’t use.

Amazingly Affordable

NetSuite provides dramatic cost savings compared to other combinations of front-office and back-office applications. No longer will you have to justify another upgrade of your hardware and/or software to keep up with or stay ahead of your competition.
NetSuite’s on-demand business model means you will always have our latest software enhancements automatically, and we’ll do the work to make that happen.
