(Gawkwire.com) Box.net announced an integration with the NetSuite cloud computing platform. Box makes it simple for businesses to share, access, manage, and collaborate on their content online. Built using NetSuite’s SuiteCloud development platform, the combined solution helps NetSuite customers improve productivity, efficiency, and business performance by making it easy to manage and collaborate on content without leaving NetSuite. The announcement was made today at SuiteCloud 2010, NetSuite’s annual partner and developer conference being held in San Francisco.
NetSuite’s SuiteCloud is a comprehensive offering of on-demand products, development tools, and services designed to help customers and commercial software developers take advantage of the significant economic benefits of cloud computing. The complete SuiteCloud offering includes NetSuite’s multi-tenant, always-on SaaS infrastructure and the NetSuite business suite of applications: Accounting/ERP, CRM and Ecommerce.
"Business content comes in all shapes and sizes, from digital media to company publications and architectural files," said Karen Appleton, Box.net Vice President of Business Development. "Box.net for NetSuite is designed to help NetSuite customers collaborate within teams, across departments, and even with external partners and customers, from within the NetSuite environment."
Box.net for NetSuite helps NetSuite customers increase productivity by making relevant content – such as sales collateral, demo videos, invoices, contracts and purchase orders -accessible and shareable to those who are viewing a customer record. By assigning Box folders to specific customer records, employees across departments are kept in sync with what files have been shared with which customers. The combined solution also incorporates collaboration and workflow into NetSuite, giving users the ability to create shared folders outside of a customer record and invite colleagues, partners and contractors to review, update and add their own files. And, NetSuite customers can increase employee productivity by leveraging Box’s integrated third-party services within NetSuite, including the ability to email or fax files, e-sign contracts and edit documents online.
"We’re excited to bring a dynamic, flexible and powerful content management and collaboration solution to our customers by integrating with Box.net," said Guido Haarmans, Vice President of Developer Programs at NetSuite. "At NetSuite, we strive to eliminate operational inefficiencies by offering robust, cloud-based business management software. Box.net for NetSuite furthers our goal of using the cloud to help our customers centralize their business processes in a single location, online."
