Commco switches from SAP R/3 to NetSuite OneWorld

In a separate Nov. 4 announcement, NetSuite announced that Commco LLC, a Kansas City-based distribution and light manufacturing company and a leading home improvement millwork distributor, is the latest company to successfully switch from SAP R/3 to NetSuite OneWorld, going live on time and on budget, NetSuite said. The move provided the Kansas City-based company substantial savings in its effort to modernize its business operations and eliminate the high cost of maintaining and upgrading SAP's complex, on-premise software, according to NetSuite. Commco transitioned to NetSuite's cloud computing platform for its core operational needs, including enterprise resource planning (ERP) functionality such as inventory management, ordering, fulfillment, EDI communications, corporate financials, and reporting; and customer relationship management (CRM) functionality such as sales and customer service management.

Franklin Christopher, president and CEO of Commco, told NetSuite that SAP R/3 had only 30 percent the functionality of NetSuite: "NetSuite Professional Services provided us with a smooth transition that included teaching us how to create our own reporting so that the average employee could customize their own role-based dashboards and reports going forward," Christopher said.

"SAP wanted our business, but our knowing that NetSuite's entire focus is on SaaS and the depth of functionality they offered compared to SAP Business ByDesign made the choice easy."

Commco customers include high-profile nationwide retailers such as Lowe's; the eight-year-old company counts 120 employees and $45 million in annual revenue. Christopher said Commco considered SAP's SaaS product Business ByDesign among its options.

NetSuite OneWorld provides instant access to customizable analytics, the company says, and because NetSuite OneWorld is cloud-based, there's no need to manage and maintain complex software on desktops and laptops or in a server room, with the associated costs and resources.
