Hubspan Announces Wholesale Distribution SuiteApp for NetSuite's SuiteCloud Computing Platform

New SuiteApp Can Help NetSuite Customers Optimize Wholesale Distribution Business Processes to Improve Business Performance and Reduce Administrative Costs

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - May 12, 2011) - Hubspan, a leading provider of cloud-scale B2B integration solutions, today announced its new Wholesale Distribution NetSuite application for NetSuite's SuiteCloud Computing Platform. The Wholesale Distribution SuiteApp automates key wholesale distribution processes via cloud-based integration. Built using NetSuite's SuiteCloud development platform, the SuiteApp lets NetSuite customers extend and optimize their eProcurement and eCommerce order-to-cash business processes across the Hubspan B2B cloud to their customers and partners, which can improve business performance by reducing the time and costs of non-cloud communications.

The announcement was made today at SuiteWorld 2011, NetSuite's inaugural conference designed for NetSuite customers, solution providers, independent software providers, developers and system integrators. SuiteWorld 2011 is being held in San Francisco.

NetSuite's SuiteCloud is a comprehensive offering of on-demand products, development tools and services designed to help customers and commercial software developers take advantage of the significant economic benefits of cloud computing. The complete SuiteCloud offering includes NetSuite's multi-tenant, always-on SaaS infrastructure; the NetSuite Business Suite of applications for Accounting/ERP, CRM and Ecommerce; and comprehensive development tools to create on-demand business applications on top of NetSuite.

"The ability for wholesale distributors to quickly and flexibly respond to integration requests of customers is a necessity in today's always-on world," says Margaret Dawson, vice president of marketing and product management for Hubspan. "Seamless, cloud-based integration helps distributors respond to customer product needs quickly, and conduct electronic commerce in the ways preferred by many customers."

Hubspan lets members of an integration community exchange critical messages on product availability, purchase orders or invoices, or other information, in real time. Companies can connect to the Hubspan cloud via a wide range of Internet protocols or Web services. Hubspan also offers a full suite of advanced integration and security capabilities that operate at the business process level, including end-to-end encryption, security policy mediation, data correlation, event management, business rules and business intelligence.

Working with NetSuite
The SuiteApp lets NetSuite customers seamlessly exchange information with companies using SAP, Oracle, PeopleSoft, Lawson and other formats, including custom forms of XML. Delivered as a service with subscription pricing, the Hubspan SuiteApp requires no hardware or software infrastructure and can be implemented in weeks. As a result, NetSuite customers can simplify their communications with customers and partners, reducing the time and costs of phone, email, file exchange or other methods.

"By partnering with Hubspan, NetSuite customers in the wholesale distribution industry can collaborate with their customers and partners over the cloud, without having to change the way they do business," says Guido Haarmans, vice president Developer Programs at NetSuite. "So our customers can focus on what they do best, and allow NetSuite and Hubspan technologies to help them manage and grow their businesses."
