AJAX-Powered Features in NetSuite’s CRM, Ecommerce and Accounting Software Suite and OpenAir Professional Services Automation Optimized with Google Chrome Browser

SAN MATEO, Calif. (September 05, 2008) – NetSuite Inc. (NYSE: N), a leading vendor of on-demand, integrated business management software suites for mid-market enterprises and divisions of large companies, today announced its support for the Google Chrome Browser, a new open source browser intended to make the Web faster, safer, and easier. As the first business application with native support for iPhone and Firefox 3.0 (announced in July), NetSuite continues to focus on innovation around the latest browser technology and is also one of the first business applications to support Google Chrome. In addition to NetSuite CRM, Ecommerce and accounting software products, OpenAir — a NetSuite company and a leader in on-demand professional services automation software — also added support for the new Google Chrome Browser.

Since it is optimized for Web 2.0, the new Google Chrome Browser enhances the performance speed for AJAX-powered features of NetSuite, such as eXtreme list editing, type-ahead lookups, rich text editing, drag-and-drop and quick-add portlets. OpenAir experiences similar performance gains for dynamic workflows, such as assigning project resources and managing project tasks. NetSuite and OpenAir support three other Web browsers: Internet Explorer, Firefox and Safari. With the addition of Google Chrome support, NetSuite continues to provide customers with broad-based freedom of choice when it comes to running their businesses and accessing key business data from anywhere, at any time.

“At NetSuite, we strive to offer our customers the latest innovations that will enable the greatest degree of choice, flexibility and productivity,” said Per Jakobsen, Vice President of Product Management at NetSuite. “We salute Google for the innovation they’ve offered in their new Chrome Browser and are pleased to be able to offer early support for Chrome to all NetSuite and OpenAir customers.”


NetSuite support for Google Chrome is being rolled out now in phases to customers. Once the rollout is complete in mid-October, all NetSuite and OpenAir functionality will work with Google Chrome’s current release. Google’s Chrome Browser, as a new release, is still in beta version and has not yet been certified for full release by Google.
