NetSuite Launches Commerce as a Service
In other news from NetSuite's SuiteWorld 2012:
- NetSuite announced that Girl Scouts of the United States is launching a nationwide e-commerce program on its NetSuite SuiteCommerce platform. The Girl Scouts, which has 2.3 million members, 900,000 volunteers and 59 million alumnae, selected NetSuite to replace its current ERP, warehouse management and e-commerce software. The new NetSuite-based solution will be used by the 65 Girl Scout councils that currently maintain online shops. Girl Scouts have 2,500 SKUs, from uniforms and program resources to collectibles and badges. Additionally, about 47 councils that don't have e-commerce storefronts will be able to create them when the NetSuite-based system is fully implemented. The new solution will provide Girl Scouts with a unified e-commerce and brand presence under a single domain name, girlscoutshop.com, with customized pages for each of the 112 Girl Scout councils. "We see a huge opportunity to both enhance business at the council level and reduce expenses," said Barry Horowitz, vice president and general manager, Girl Scouts merchandise, in a press release distributed at the event. "The more retail business the councils do, the more wholesale business we do at the national level. It's a win-win."
- NetSuite has established a technology partnership with Stripe, an online payment system provider that allows e-businesses to easily accept credit card payments for products and services. The Stripe payment processing solution has been integrated into SuiteCommerce.
- NetSuite has teamed up with payment service Square and its Register application for the iPad. Under the Square/NetSuite partnership, Square's Register application will be integrated with the NetSuite cloud commerce solution, creating a seamless and secure POS system that provides merchants with an understanding of their customers, transactions and financials.
