OpenAir has extended NetSuite's One System Architecture with new capabilities to meet the needs of businesses with services groups, including software companies and consulting firms.

Because NetSuite holds the most important data of a company orders, invoices, website transactions, shipping records, time tracking, and payroll data the applications that are built on it using NetFlex are much more powerful and business critical. For example, with OpenAir, NetSuite users can now enable seamless data flow between the project accounting of OpenAir and NetSuite, enabling better views of project profitability and revenue recognition, further enhancing the core of NetSuite's capabilities.

Service groups, including software companies and consulting firms, will benefit from NetSuite's order management, inventory management, shipping management, payroll and financial data, which are the lifeblood of most companies. Now such data can be accessed for new Web services-based applications, including OpenAir.

OpenAir's professional service automation (PSA) application helps project-based organizations increase profits through improving resource utilization and enabling more efficient project management. More than 200 companies and 18,000 subscribers use OpenAir to manage all aspects of their global services business, including resource staffing, project management and billing.

"We are very pleased to be a NetFlex Applications Program partner," said Morris Panner, CEO of OpenAir. "The NetFlex platform provides a cost effective way to integrate NetSuite with OpenAir's PSA, making it possible to build deeper integrations than standalone point-product applications. Together, we will deliver integrated, on-demand applications in a seamless fashion to our shared customers, namely professional service firms and software developers."

"NetSuite helps a company manage its core back-office/ front-office processes. The NetFlex Applications Program allows third-parties to leverage this 'system of record' to extend NetSuite into a host of important applications," said Zach Nelson, CEO of NetSuite. "With NetSuite's increased focus on the professional services vertical, OpenAir is a great complement to our already broad application footprint."
