“We just launched our ecommerce initiative in January 2006, but are already reaping the rewards of increased sales,” said Steven Lora, president of MOTIF Modern Living. “NetSuite is the secret weapon that allows smaller ecommerce sites to compete with the retail giants.

“The previous company I owned was much larger, using a system that cost hundreds of thousands of dollars,” said Bob Frauenheim, owner of Putters.com. “When I started Putters.com I was looking for something that would have that same business-class functionality – for purchasing, warehousing, order processing – but was more affordable for a startup company. Lower total cost of ownership, high return on investment, and having everything all integrated – that’s the big strength of NetSuite.”
