Cast Iron Systems Announces Integration Solution for NetSuite On-Demand Business Management Suite

Secure, Scalable Integration Solution Helps Mid-Market Companies Accelerate NetSuite Adoption

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwire - June 25, 2008) - Cast Iron Systems, the #1 SaaS integration provider, today announced the Cast Iron Integration Solution for NetSuite. Using Cast Iron's NetSuite-optimized solution, whether on-premises or hosted in the cloud, businesses can reduce integration costs by as much as 80 percent as compared to traditional software-based integration alternatives. With no integration software to purchase, install, or maintain, customers can integrate NetSuite and their existing business systems in days, streamlining front-office CRM and back-office ERP as well as ecommerce capabilities.

"We evaluated several integration solution partners to complement our application suite," said Mini Peiris, NetSuite's vice president of product marketing. "Given the growing number of NS-BOS vertical solutions, as well as the increasing sophistication of our customer base, we wanted to provide our customers and partners options on how to connect to specific vertical and legacy systems. With built-in connectivity to NetSuite solutions and the flexibility to deliver integration in the cloud or using an appliance, the Cast Iron Integration Solution for NetSuite rapidly delivers standards-based integrations for our customers, accelerating adoption of our ERP, ecommerce, and CRM suite."

The Cast Iron Integration Solution for NetSuite provides built-in connectivity to migrate data into NetSuite and also to synchronize valuable data in real-time between NetSuite and enterprise systems. Consistent and accurate data facilitates increased productivity across all channels and touch-points. Integration projects are accelerated because the need for software coding is eliminated. With the Cast Iron Integration Solution, NetSuite can be rapidly and reliably integrated with flat-files, web services, messaging systems, and hundreds of applications including SAP, PeopleSoft, Oracle, Salesforce.com, RightNow, Certain Software, Clarify, and Remedy, as well as major databases including MS SQL Server, Oracle, Informix, and DB2.

For IBA Molecular, a global manufacturer of radiopharmaceuticals, isotopes, and cyclotron solutions, the need to connect SAP with NetSuite for A/R led to the selection of the Cast Iron Integration Solution.

According to Patrick Eischen, IBA Molecular's CIO, "The Cast Iron Integration Solution simplifies and accelerates integration between our on-demand solutions, including NetSuite and our on-premise business systems, giving our company a distinct advantage. Now we can efficiently collect and disseminate reliable, secure information throughout the extended enterprise and, in so doing, better serve our customers and their patients worldwide."

Cast Iron's NetSuite solution consists of the entry-level iA2000-NS for connecting NetSuite solutions to a single application; the iA2500-NS, the entry-level enterprise class solution for connecting NetSuite to a single application; and the iA3000-NS, an enterprise solution for connecting NetSuite solutions to hundreds of on-premises and on-demand applications. It also delivers Salesforce.com to NetSuite integration right out of the box. The Cast Iron solution comes with a comprehensive set of web-based, graphical configuration and management tools that enable companies to complete and maintain projects quickly and easily through "configuration, not coding."

"Cast Iron is the leading integrator of SaaS applications," said Ken Comée, president and CEO of Cast Iron Systems. "Our solution has been tested and proven by every SaaS industry leader and hundreds if not thousands of their customers. The Cast Iron Integration Solution for NetSuite, whether hosted in the cloud or deployed on-premises, is simple to use, quick to deploy, cost-effective, and ready to scale as companies grow."
