NetSuite Inc. (NYSE: N) said that Seeing Machines Limited (SEE: LN) has deployed NetSuite OneWorld to manage its head office and warehouse in Canberra and its two subsidiaries: Seeing Machines Inc. in the US (three offices and one warehouse) and Seeing Machines Latin America in Chile (one office).
The company replaced Salesforce.com, MYOB, Excel and Outlook (for ordering) with a single instance of NetSuite OneWorld to manage its core business processes, including financial consolidation, CRM, inventory management, work orders and assemblies, project management and fixed asset management. NetSuite OneWorld also provides multi-currency (AUD, USD, CLP and GBP) functionality, which supports Seeing Machines´ growing export business into more than 10 countries.
Spun out of the Australian National University, Seeing Machines was founded by four researchers in 1997 and commercialised in 2000 to help machines understand driver fatigue and distraction in people by tracking and interpreting human faces and eyes.
NetSuite said that OneWorld enables Seeing Machines to manage its subsidiaries in the US and Chile by automating transactions between the businesses, eliminating double entry of data and helping to remove the possibility of human error. Consolidated reporting is also helping Seeing Machines gain real-time visibility across all of its subsidiaries to assess how each one is performing.
With real-time visibility into inventory globally, Seeing Machines can now better plan for how much inventory it needs, track the movement of goods and meet customer demand much quicker.
OneWorld has given Seeing Machines much greater control over the customisation of user roles, with audit trails providing the ability to track each transaction and respond or intervene in the event of human errors. This real-time visibility has helped improve staff accountability.
Since its inception in 1998, NetSuite has established itself as the leading provider of enterprise-ready cloud business management suites of enterprise resource planning (ERP), customer relationship management (CRM), and ecommerce applications for businesses of all sizes.
