LONDON, March 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- NetSuite Inc. (NYSE: N), the industry's leading provider of cloud-based financials / ERP and omnichannel commerce software suites, today announced that PAG Leisurewear (http://www.pag-leisurewear.co.uk/), one of the UK's leading apparel wholesalers, is using NetSuite SuiteCommerce to manage its omnichannel business from end-to-end on one unified business management suite – including B2B and B2C ecommerce, financials, inventory management, order management, third-party logistics, marketing, and customer service and support, – all without a dedicated IT staff.
Established in 1969, PAG Leisurewear, distributes wholesale clothing for the world's best brands, such as Gildan and Fruit of the Loom, and was recently recognised for their work as the official "supplier of clothing (ceremonies) to the London 2012 Games." PAG Leisurewear first implemented NetSuite in 2008 to run its financials and other back-end business operations. As the company was exploring new ways to deliver a seamless customer experience, PAG Leisurewear decided to deploy its website on NetSuite SuiteCommerce. SuiteCommerce's flexible cloud platform delivers what PAG Leisurewear needs to stay competitive and succeed in today's business environment including: real-time visibility and control of its entire commerce business to support timely inventory refreshes, seamless interactions with customers, and a complete, unified commerce shopping experience for B2B and B2C customers from any device.
The flexibility of SuiteCommerce has allowed PAG Leisurewear to build a consumer-like website that mirrors today's B2C sites, but with the unique functionality its B2B customers require. For example, PAG Leisurewear is leveraging an advanced grid order sheet to help customers quickly and easily select and add items to the cart. Customers are also able to access current and future stock information in various time periods, an important capability for customers who may need an order immediately.
Wholesalers and distributors are looking for ways to transform their businesses into agile enterprises with timely execution and an online consumer-like experience in order to succeed in this very competitive market. NetSuite's cloud-based platform provides the business agility to rapidly expand into new markets and sales channels, while reducing IT costs and providing a seamless customer shopping experience. In addition, the SuiteCommerce advanced web store allows the creation of rich interactive and engaging shopping experiences with features like faceted search and navigation, advanced product imagery, searchandizing and dynamic merchandising. And with complete design flexibility and responsive technology, build sites that display elegantly across all devices.
Michael Hanreck, partner, PAG Leisurewear, comments: "The traditional methods of distribution, which used to rely solely on fax and telesales, are quickly shifting to meet the preferences of today's consumers. The web has now become the centre of our business to meet the needs of our customers who demand an easy-to-use web store with real-time access to stock information from any device. SuiteCommerce is the future-proof ecommerce platform we need to support our customers and growth plans."
Branden Jenkins, general manager of global retail, NetSuite, said: "NetSuite continues to provide the very best software to run mission-critical business processes, with SuiteCommerce leading the way in ecommerce platforms. Forward-thinking businesses, like PAG Leisurewear, know that in order to deliver a true omnichannel shopping and services experience to consumers, they require an integrated platform that tightly combines ecommerce with back-office systems. We are confident that PAG Leisurewear has the right platform in place grow and expand its business."
Today, more than 20,000 companies and subsidiaries depend on NetSuite to run complex, mission-critical business processes globally in the cloud. Since its inception in 1998, NetSuite has established itself as the leading provider of enterprise-class cloud ERP suites for divisions of large enterprises and mid-sized organisations seeking to upgrade their antiquated client/server ERP systems. NetSuite excels at streamlining business operations, as demonstrated by a recent Gartner study naming NetSuite as the fastest growing top 10 financial management systems vendor in the world. NetSuite continues its success in delivering the best cloud ERP/financial suites to businesses around the world, enabling them to lower IT costs significantly while increasing productivity, as the global adoption of the cloud accelerates

When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity. With cloud bursting, the majority of the data can stay on premises while tapping into compute from public cloud providers, reducing risk and minimizing need to move large files. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Scott Jeschonek, Director of Product Management at Avere Systems, discussed the IT and busin...

Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
