Coastal Software & Consulting, Inc. Joins NetSuite's SuiteFlex Developer Program

    Leveraging the SuiteFlex Development Platform, Coastal Software &
    Consulting Develops Industry Specific Software Application to Meet the ADP
    Payroll Integration Needs of Businesses Using NetSuite

    SAN MATEO, Calif. and VANCOUVER, Wash., Nov. 28 /CNW/ -- Coastal Software
& Consulting, Inc. today announced that it has become a partner of NetSuite's
SuiteFlex Developer Program. Coastal has extended NetSuite's One System
Architecture with new capabilities to meet the needs of businesses that
require ADP payroll integration and transaction management using NetSuite
data. The SuiteFlex Development platform allows third-party applications to
integrate transaction data -- orders, inventory, invoices and shipments --
with their applications, and enable customers and third-party developers to
build new workflows and applications that look and operate as if NetSuite's
own developers wrote them.
    Because NetSuite holds critical business data of a company -- orders,
invoices, Web site transactions, shipping records, time tracking and payroll
data -- the applications that are built on it using SuiteFlex provide key
tools for managing the company's business. For example, by using Coastal's
PTEBridge for NetSuite, companies can update their NetSuite general ledger
automatically using time entry and payroll data they have already entered into
ADP. PTEBridge is based on Coastal's Payroll Time Export(TM) technology, which
also allows companies to report on the details of their payroll checks,
synchronize employee setup data, and import EZ Labor Manager(TM) data in
NetSuite, eliminating the need to enter active labor and time entry data in
multiple applications.
    Based in Vancouver, Washington, Coastal Software & Consulting, Inc.
provides solutions for businesses that want to streamline their payroll and
general accounting processes by intelligently "bridging" payroll, time entry,
and general ledger data across multiple systems, including NetSuite and ADP.
Using products such as PTEBridge (, Coastal's
customers can reliably transfer data between their payroll and accounting
applications, allowing employee data synchronization, electronic disbursement,
reduced human error, easier bank account reconciliation, and improved
efficiency overall.
    "Our products and services are designed for easy integration with your
existing payroll and accounting software assets," said Deryk Marien, Coastal
Software President and CEO. "We provide the 'bridge' that's needed between
your systems so that your data is accurate and useful without having to enter
it multiple times."
    About SuiteFlex and NetSuite's SuiteFlex Developer Program
    SuiteFlex is an application development platform that enables the
creation of third-party vertical applications within NetSuite, as well as
business process customization for any end-user company. SuiteFlex includes
several industry technology advances and innovations including additions to
SuiteScript -- which allows for on-demand programming using only a web browser
on a device with Internet access. As a part of SuiteScript, NetSuite
introduced Suitelets and SuiteScript UI Objects, allowing customers and
third-party developers to build new workflows and applications that can look
and operate as if NetSuite's own developers wrote them. In addition, SuiteFlex
introduces a new concept for the Software as a Service market -- "Service as
Software," SuiteBundler -- to deliver new integrated vertical solutions by
packaging their Suitelets and other extensions with NetSuite's core
ERP/CRM/Ecommerce application. SuiteBundler enables solution providers to
embed their industry-best practices, knowledge and applications --
traditionally delivered as one-off services -- into the actual NetSuite
application for verticals in a repeatable fashion.
    NetSuite's SuiteFlex Developer Program was established to help solution
providers achieve success in vertical markets by bringing them the following:

    -- Template development account with extensive SuiteFlex customization,
       development and integration capabilities and access to the entire
