Agosto's NetSuite ERP Suite & Google Apps Offering Strengthen Company's SaaS Practice

New Partnership Provides a Revolutionary Way to Run Businesses Completely in the Cloud, Reducing Costs While Enhancing Operations

MINNEAPOLIS, MN--(Marketwire - March 30, 2010) -  Agosto, Inc. (www.agostoinc.com), a provider of efficiency-driving IT managed services, technology resources, and CIO-level strategy and management to small and medium-size businesses, today announced that NetSuite Inc.'s newly announced collaboration with Google revolutionizes cloud computing and extends its ability to help companies operate more cost effectively. NetSuite, a leading vendor of cloud computing business management software suites, is making its cloud computing enterprise resource planning (ERP) suite available in the Google Apps Marketplace, Google's recently launched online storefront for Google Apps™ products and services. Irfan Khan, founder of Agosto, which has worked with both NetSuite and Google for over three years, explains why the collaboration is a life-changer for the small and medium-size business sector that Agosto works with. "With NetSuite's cloud platform for ERP, CRM, Inventory and ecommerce and Google's platform for mail, collaboration and documents, businesses now can operate completely in the cloud -- completely cost effectively. Over the past five years, our SaaS (software-as-a-service) Practice has helped more than 30 businesses save millions of dollars in IT infrastructure and maintenance costs and become more competitive. This development will strengthen our ability to help clients gain even greater savings."

One of the first Google Apps Certified Resellers in the world, Agosto has helped dozens of companies migrate to Google Apps. "Ultimately our goal is to help our clients outsmart their competition without outspending them. Google Apps is one of the places we start to deliver on that goal," says Aric Bandy, Agosto's CEO.

Using Netsuite, Agosto trimmed Twin Cities-based 2nd Wind Exercise IT operations. Agosto was cited in the March 2009 issue of Inc. magazine's article, "One Company's Budget Getting Back into Shape: An IT department overhaul," for helping 2nd Wind dramatically improve the efficiency of its IT operations.

NetSuite's cloud-based ERP suite offers two million-plus Google Apps customers the opportunity to meet more of their business needs in a single application that runs key back-office operations and financial business process -- including accounting, inventory and supply chain, order management and business intelligence.
