My spin: NetLedger is snatching Salesforce.com customers. There’s two kinds of customers – those who are loyal to you and love your product and those who hate your product and want to switch but have invested so much time and resources into it, that it makes it hard to do so. NetLedge has solved that issue for Salesforce.com’s customers who want to switch. I guess Salesforce.com will make their own switching tool too for customers who want to leave NetLedger? 😉
NetLedger Announces Salesforce.com Migration Program
More Than 30 Companies Migrate from Salesforce.com’s Legacy, Standalone SFA Application to NetLedger’s Integrated Front Office/Back Office Suites
SAN MATEO, CA. – December 13, 2002 æ NetLedger, Inc., makers of Oracle Æ Small Business Suite, today announced new migration capabilities enabling businesses to switch from Salesforce.com’s legacy stand-alone SFA application.
Called the Legacy SFA Switch Program (www.netledger.com/switch
Among the more than 30 companies that have migrated from Salesforce.com to NetLedger’s business suites in the past months are The Steele Foundation, Designs for Health, HandyAll, SmartSynch, and Peak Placement, LLC.
“With offices on four continents, we have a geographically diverse workforce with a strong need for integration,” said Todd Lane, CFO of The Steele Foundation (www.steelefoundation.com) based in San Francisco, Calif., which provides enterprise risk management solutions to corporations and governments. “Before learning about NetSuite we used Salesforce.com and a variety of diverse applications which by themselves worked fine, but not together. Now we have one simplified, NetLedger application in their place. We’re excited to watch our productivity increase as a result of NetSuite. The whole process of migration is easy due to NetLedger’s migration technology and the professional services team.”
“”We were using Salesforce.com but needed a more complete package delivery,” said Alain Ghiai, CEO of HandyAll, a Web-based provider of home repairs in the San Francisco Bay Area and the Greater Vancouver, B.C. area. “After looking at many options, including Salesforce.com, SalesNet and NetLedger, we decided that NetLedger’s NetSuite is the best way to go. NetLedger offers us a complete CRM/SFA/ERM solution at a very reasonable price and an efficiency savings of 30 percent. The back office/front office solution is ideal for us, and we can safely say that NetLeger’s NetSuite is going to save us $300,000 to $400,000 in the first year of operations.”
“Previously we used Salesforce.com for SFA and other products for accounting, said Nola Nicolas, Director of Marketing for Jackson, Miss.-based SmartSynch (www.smartsynch.com
a leading provider of smart metering solutions to the energy and utility industry. “But after learning about NetLedger, I thought why should we have two systems when we can do it all with one? We have a small sales team that will grow over time. It wasn’t too hard moving over our data, so we’re glad we switched to NetLedger when we did.”
Jonathan Lizotte is founder and CEO of Designs for Health (www.designsforhealth.com
for us.” Lizotte figures the Suite has saved him and his sales reps, which are spread out over six states, about $80,000 in time, overhead and capital expenses this year.
