23 May 2017 4 min. read

Oracle subsidiary NetSuite, a cloud based business management software company, has unveiled its 2017 Partners of the Year. Five of the fourteen awards went to consulting firms: Deloitte Digital, Grant Thornton and RSM.

Founded in 1998, NetSuite helps companies manage core business processes with a single, fully integrated system (ERP) covering financials, CRM, ecommerce, inventory and more. Spanning system integrators, consulting firms and digital specialists, among others, NetSuite’s network of partners play a vital role in helping the more than 40,000 companies and subsidiaries that run NetSuite reach their potential. 

Every year the company, which is headquartered in Silicon Valley, recognises excellence and best practice performance among its preferred suppliers through its ‘Partners of the Year’ award. The firm’s 2017 edition was held last week at the SuiteWorld 2017 conference in Las Vegas, with x of the fourteen awards presented to professionals services firms.

RSM’s UK wing received the ‘Regional Alliance of the Year’ award, lauded for combining excellence in NetSuite Enterprise Resource Planning with cloud-to-cloud integration and multi-country business transformation expertise. Chris Knowles, head of technology consulting at RSM, said: ‘It is excellent news that RSM UK has been presented with this highly regarded business accolade from NetSuite. Cloud ERP is rapidly changing the business software landscape, so to receive recognition for leading the way with this technology is testament to our enduring commitment to client service and to innovative ideas. The team couldn’t be more pleased.”

In addition, RSM US also won the ‘Worldwide Solution Provider of the Year’ award, continuing a run of five wins in a row, “recognising our top performance globally”, said Knowles.

NetSuite 2017 Partners of the Year Awards

Deloitte Digital also managed to scoop two awards. The firm was named ‘Global Alliance Partner of the Year’ and ‘Worldwide Partner of the Year’, arguably the most prestigious award of the ceremony. Deloitte is one of the world's largest implementation partners for NetSuite solutions, providing services such as business strategy, customer engagement, technology implementation, and operational readiness, including project- and change management. “There's been tremendous momentum recently within cloud-based enterprise resource planning, and Deloitte Digital has made significant investments that have allowed us to grow rapidly in this space. NetSuite is in a great position to capture this market, and we’re excited to be a part of it”, commented a spokesperson of the Big Four firm. 

Grant Thornton has been named the 2017 ‘North America Regional Alliance Partner of the Year’ by NetSuite. The award recognises the accounting and consulting firm for its exemplary relationship with NetSuite's sales, account management and professional services teams – a collaboration that helps companies meet their growth objectives in areas like finance, operations and customer relations. Grant Thornton and NetSuite have been collaborating since 2012, with the goal of streamlining processes such as accounting, customer relationship management (CRM), and ecommerce.

“In past years, Grant Thornton has been named a NetSuite National Systems Integrator of the Year and an Oracle Specialized Partner of the Year,” said Mike Ward, a managing principal in Grant Thornton's Advisory Services practice. “Our latest designation is another example of how Grant Thornton is solving our clients' evolving operational needs by tapping into NetSuite's cloud computing solutions.”
