Qontext Announces Social-Collaboration SuiteApp for NetSuite's SuiteCloud Computing Platform

Qontext's SuiteApp Helps NetSuite Customers Improve Business Performance by Enhancing Communications and Knowledge Management

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - May 11, 2011) - Qontext Inc., a leading business social collaboration platform and Gartner's 2011 "Cool Vendor" pick, today announced a new social-collaboration NetSuite (NYSE: N) application for the SuiteCloud Computing Platform. Qontext facilitates social sharing, contextual conversations, and collaboration across business applications. Qontext's integration uses NetSuite's SuiteCloud development platform and includes a SuiteApp that can help NetSuite customers improve business performance by eliminating the need to switch back and forth between different websites and by pinning social collaborations -- discussions, documents, videos, blogs, and wikis -- right with the records where users expect them.

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 cloud-based business applications on top of NetSuite.

"Social collaboration becomes more important to businesses every day," said Samir Ghosh, VP Business Development & Strategy of Qontext. "Our NetSuite SuiteSocial integration offers great value to users by improving business efficiencies and knowledge management."

The Qontext solution includes the social collaboration tools Threaded Discussions, File and Document Management with versioning and Microsoft Office® integration, Shared Bookmarks, Blogging, Rich Text Wikis, Photo and Video Sharing, Polls, Quizzes, and Surveys.

Working with NetSuite
The new NetSuite Application lets NetSuite users collaborate as easily with non-NetSuite users as with NetSuite users, inside or outside of their organization, and organize social collaborations by NetSuite record as well as aggregate and search across records. The results include improved efficiencies, better use of knowledge, and improved business performance.

"Businesses want to use social applications but are trying to figure out how to integrate them with existing processes and tools," said Guido Haarmans, Vice President of Developer Programs and Business Development at NetSuite. "Qontext has built a social SuiteApp that is completely integrated with NetSuite's data model, workflow and user interface making collaboration a natural part of CRM and ERP."
