NetSuite announces new functionality for nonprofits

New Features Enable Nonprofits to Connect Donations to Outcomes, Adapt to Change

NETSUITE SUITEWORLD, SAN JOSE, Calif.—May 18, 2015—NetSuite Inc. (NYSE: N), the industry's leading provider of cloud-based financials / ERP and omnichannel commerce software suites, today announced a number of product innovations targeting nonprofits, including NetSuite OneWorld 16, revenue management, SuiteCommerce and custom records. These features are designed to help nonprofits adapt to rapid changes in the industry, while introducing efficiencies into Organisational processes. The features announced today demonstrate NetSuite’s accelerated product innovation across all industries, and for nonprofits in particular, at an unstoppable pace.

Nonprofits face a rapidly changing and unpredictable operating environment. In the face of increasing donor expectations, new business models that blur the lines between nonprofit and for-profit approaches are emerging. Every nonprofit must break the vicious cycle of low investment, underfunded programs and unrealistic donor expectations. By partnering with NetSuite, nonprofits can deploy future-proof technology and leading practices to create a virtuous cycle of higher performance, increased innovation and better outcomes.

NetSuite’s corporate citizenship arm,, offers donated and discounted software and pro bono services to hundreds of qualified nonprofits and social enterprises. But with more than 600 nonprofit organisations among its customers, NetSuite also provides a platform that allows nonprofits run their core operations and the capabilities (now and tomorrow) to connect a donor’s dollar to an expenditure to an outcome while also providing the rich functionality, agility and scalability that these organisations need to adapt to shifts in modern giving.

“Between our deep roster of nonprofit customers and the close, pro bono work we’ve done with many of these organisations, NetSuite has a deep understanding of the challenges nonprofits face today,” said David Geilhufe, Senior Director, “We’ve built out functionality to meet those challenges today, with flexibility to meet the challenges of tomorrow and we will continue to share leading practices to help them fulfil their mission.”
