Configurators, EDI Gateway
SAN MATEO, Calif., June 12 /CNW/ -- NetSuite Inc. (NYSE: N), a leading
vendor of on-demand, integrated business management software suites for the
mid-market enterprise and divisions of large companies, today announced the
latest product extensions to NetSuite built by NetSuite developer partners
using the NetSuite Business Operating System (NS- BOS). These new ISV-built
solutions are focused on meeting the specific needs of manufacturing companies
and the availability of these solutions was timed to coincide with today's
unveiling of NetSuite for Manufacturers (please see separate product news
announcement). The NetSuite ISV partners include Omnify Software, Configure
One, SuiteCommerce, and SPS Commerce. For more information about NS-BOS,

"These partners illustrate the power and flexibility of NetSuite's
platform," said Per Jacobsen, NetSuite's Vice President of Product Management.
"Whether building new vertical solutions, or extending, customizing, and
delivering specific industry processes, the NS-BOS development platform
enables our partners to focus their energy on building their solutions and
business, and not on delivery. This helps them to rapidly expand into
increasingly dynamic and vertical markets with best-of-breed functionality."
In today's dynamic market, companies require solutions designed for their
specific business. At the same time, ISVs and developers are looking to
transition their applications to Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) to reduce
infrastructure costs and allow customers to take advantage of the numerous
benefits that SaaS applications offer. NS-BOS delivers the SaaS development
platform that addresses these two growing market trends. By building on and
extending the core of NetSuite, NS-BOS increases ISVs speed-to-market. This is
because every vertical application can interact with and leverage the core ERP
/ CRM / Ecommerce functionality of NetSuite and related data managed by the
suite. This way, developers can focus on their vertical differentiation rather
than spending time on "horizontal" functionality such as quote or order
Omnify Software, Configure One, SuiteCommerce, and SPS Commerce are a few
of the many NetSuite ISVs and VARs who are taking advantage of the power of
NS-BOS to offer industry-specific solutions that span a range of applications-

following are highlights of their most recent NetSuite-based solutions:
