New SuiteApp Meets the NetSuite SuiteCloud Platform's Development Standards and Documented Best Practices
PASADENA, Calif., – July 14, 2014 – Central Desktop, the leading cloud-based collaboration platform provider for marketers, today announced that its SocialBridge® SuiteApp has achieved ‘Built for NetSuite’ verification. The new SuiteApp, built using NetSuite’s SuiteCloud Computing Platform, centralizes work in a single platform conducive to creative teams and project managers, while also leveraging the accounting and job tracking capabilities of NetSuite. Built for NetSuite is a program for SuiteCloud Developer Network (SDN) partners that provides them with information, resources and a method to verify that their applications and integrations, built using the NetSuite SuiteCloud Computing Platform, meet NetSuite standards and best practices. The Built for NetSuite program is designed to give NetSuite customers additional confidence that their SuiteApps have been built to meet these standards.
While NetSuite provides job tracking from a financial, resource and high-level project standpoint, SocialBridge gives users a central, collaborative environment to manage the team’s communication, deliverables, assignments, files and routing workflow. With the integrated solution, companies are able to:
Accurately and efficiently link creative work to billing and revenue
Standardize company-wide on a common set of tools
Gain better visibility into the status of client projects
Improve communications with clients
Manage work requests more easily.
“One of the biggest productivity challenges that marketers struggle with is bringing internal teams like creative and accounting together on a standard set of tools to create and manage client work, track projects and tie time spent on project work back to billing,” said Arnulf Hsu, co-founder and CTO of Central Desktop. “Managing information in multiple systems often requires redundant work and leads to incomplete and inaccurate project data, which causes more problems down the line. To address this, we’ve integrated SocialBridge and NetSuite to enable real-time data synchronization between the two systems, no matter in which system the data originated.”
“Central Desktop exploits the power of cloud collaboration to simplify and improve the way marketers work,” said Guido Haarmans, Vice President of Business Development for Technology Partners for NetSuite. “Customers, especially in the rapidly growing and changing media and publishing vertical, can now easily tie their creative processes back to NetSuite professional services automation and financials, providing visibility into project costs and profitability.”
