New SuiteApp Meets the NetSuite SuiteCloud Platform’s Development Standards and Documented Best Practices

Phocas Software, a leading business intelligence firm, announced today that Phocas Business Intelligence has achieved ‘Built for NetSuite’ verification. The new SuiteApp, built using NetSuite’s SuiteCloud Computing Platform, provides an integrated data solution that helps customers make data-driven business decisions, uncover new sales opportunities and improve business efficiency. 

Built for NetSuite is a program for NetSuite SuiteCloud Developer Network (SDN) partners that provides them with information, resources and a method to verify that their applications and integrations, built using the NetSuite SuiteCloud Computing Platform, meet NetSuite’s standards and best practices. The Built for NetSuite program is designed to give NetSuite customers additional confidence that SuiteApps have been built to meet these standards.

Phocas Business Intelligence is a front-end tool that enables users to drill down through all levels of NetSuite data to develop reports that can assist with business improvements. The new SuiteApp is quick to install and allows users to make more informed decisions which can then lead to increased profitability. With Phocas Business Intelligence, users can create dashboards and assess data in numerous ways to maximize growth. The SuiteApp is also accessible from a desktop or any mobile device.  We recently published a customer success story for Bayliss & Harding where they discuss the success they've had using Phocas to view their NetSuite data.

“We are delighted to receive the Built for NetSuite verification for our BI SuiteApp,” said Phil Dodds, CEO at Phocas. “Our relationship with NetSuite is a perfect fit with our cloud strategy and our focus on providing business intelligence solutions for small to mid-sized enterprises in distribution, manufacturing and retail.”

“NetSuite’s partnership with Phocas can offer significant value to NetSuite customers by providing easy-to-use business intelligence solutions that extend the reporting capabilities of the NetSuite platform,” said Guido Haarmans, Senior Vice President Business Development for Technology Partners at NetSuite. “Phocas understands the cloud and has considerable experience in some of the same verticals that NetSuite also serves. This expertise, combined with a focus on delivering business benefits, makes Phocas a great partner for NetSuite.”
