Celigo’s NetSuite Connector for Salesforce CRM Now Available on the Force.com AppExchange From Salesforce.com

Salesforce.com customers can now deploy the NetSuite Connector for Salesforce for seamless Lead to Cash and back-office visibility within Salesforce CRM

SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 3 /PRNewswire/ — Celigo, Inc. today announced the availability of the Celigo NetSuite Connector for Salesforce CRM on the Force.com AppExchange. The Connector provides streamlined, real-time integration between the award winning Salesforce CRM application suite and NetSuite — an accounting and enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution that supports back-office operations. Celigo’s NetSuite Connector for Salesforce CRM is immediately available for deployment on the Force.com AppExchange at http://www.salesforce.com/appexchange/.

The announcement was made today at Dreamforce ’08, salesforce.com’s user and developer conference.

Celigo’s NetSuite Connector for Salesforce CRM provides a seamless Lead to Cash process by enabling users to create estimates or sales orders in NetSuite from Salesforce CRM in real time, with the press of a button. It also empowers the sales force to manage customer relationships with capabilities beyond the scope of traditional customer relationship management (CRM) by making NetSuite back-office financial data, including order management, fulfillment, and accounting, available within Salesforce CRM. The Connector also synchronizes account information, as well as product and pricing data, between the two applications in real time so that all departments can act on the latest, most accurate information the moment it is available, ensuring more consistent and smoother operations.

Celigo’s NetSuite Connector for Salesforce CRM is an integration-as-a- service solution powered by the Celigo Integrator, which is a robust integration management platform for customizing and monitoring the solution. The entire solution is offered as a managed subscription service, which Celigo sets up, customizes and maintains on an ongoing basis.

“Through our years of experience integrating SaaS applications, we have found that customers generally prefer prebuilt, solution-oriented integrations,” said Jan Arendtsz, CEO of Celigo. “Our NetSuite Connector for Salesforce CRM is a complete solution, offered as an integration-as-a-service, not just an integration tool or platform. It has been meticulously designed and architected from the ground up by a team with deep domain expertise in both of these applications as well as in SaaS integration. This approach differs significantly from that of a traditional integration software vendor, who has limited domain knowledge of the applications being integrated, and whose objective is to sell an integration tool, not a complete solution.”

“Thousands of customers are using the Force.com AppExchange to extend the benefits of SaaS throughout their enterprises,” said Clarence So, Chief Marketing Officer, salesforce.com. “Customers can use Celigo’s solution to bring the benefits of SaaS deeper into the back office and enable them to manage their businesses more effectively from Salesforce CRM.”
