How is NetSuite expanding its market share?
Oracle (ORCL), which bought cloud-based ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) operator NetSuite in July 2016, continues to extend its global presence. Its investment of ~$9.3 billion to acquire NetSuite seems to generate positive synergies for the company regarding market expansion and tapping mid-sized firms.
NetSuite is strengthening its product portfolio by offering local products and customer support for businesses in Germany, France, China, Japan, Brazil, and Mexico. NetSuite OneWorld, the company’s unified global business management platform, helps manage operations, support global compliance, and achieve global insights.
NetSuite specializes in retail ERP solutions and is strengthening its competitive position in business operations such as warehouses, agencies, and its SuiteSuccess program.
In order to boost its product portfolio and to enhance its service, NetSuite is integrating with Oracle’s PBCS (Planning and Budgeting Cloud Service). Moreover, NetSuite products are integrated with Oracle’s warehouse management suite derived from its LogFire acquisition.
