NetSuite deal empowers cloud ERP provider JCurve to look beyond small business market

Cloud-based ERP provider JCurve Solutions has gained a firmer foothold in the local market after reaching an agreement with Netsuite that enables it to grow its customer base beyond the small business category.

Previously, JCurve Solutions held the exclusive rights to distribute the small business edition of NetSuite’s cloud ERP technology in Australia and New Zealand. While this edition could only be sold to businesses with fewer than 20 staff, the expanded partner agreement with Netsuite means JCurve Solution’s reseller rights are extended to include businesses of all sizes in the region.

According to JCurve Solution’s CEO, Stephen Canning, the new agreement makes the ASX-listed tech company one of the largest NetSuite partners in the ANZ region and will allow it to capitalise on recent revenue growth (89% n FY14/15, 42% during the first half of FY15/16).

“For the past seven years, we’ve been helping small businesses, including those in wholesale distribution, manufacturing, retail and professional services, transform their operations using the ‘JCurve edition’ of NetSuite,” Canning told Dynamic Business.

“The new agreement means that as our customers grow we can seamlessly upgrade them to NetSuite mid-market editions. We’ve built one of the largest NetSuite teams in Australia and we are now looking to build on that expertise to work with businesses of all sizes.”

JCurve Solutions recently won the Australian Business Awards ABA100 categories for Cloud Innovation and Product Excellence, in addition to the Employer of Choice Award. The company was also named as a finalist in the ARN ICT Industry Awards in the categories for SMB Partner and Management Excellence due to be announced next month.

Canning recently spoke to Dynamic Business about effective inventory management. He revealed some of the key inventory trends small businesses should consider and identified some common mistakes they need to avoid.
