NetSuite Buyers Guide to Financial Management Software - making the case for cloud-based e-commerce and ERP

25th February 2013

Successful companies break the ‘spreadsheet mentality’

The one thing that successful companies in all sectors and niches are almost certain to have in common is a solid financial footing. Often this means that they have made the essential break from the ‘spreadsheet mentality’, which is error prone and inefficient.

Instead, many will have adopted ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning), a robust and capable business management system. Such systems promote accuracy and efficiency while enabling businesses to obtain intelligence in real time. Both cloud-based ERP and cloud-based e-commerce are pivotal information systems for businesses that need to respond quickly to changes in the operating environment and gain competitive advantage in the marketplace.

Cloud-based e-commerce and ERP ideal for developing overseas markets like Brazil

12th February 2013

Brazil’s annual party shuts down the country for five days

This weekend saw the climax of Brazil’s carnival celebrations with millions of locals and international visitors and celebrities flocking to the annual five day party, a national holiday which shuts down the country for five days.

The Brazilian economy was not insulated from the problems of the global financial crisis of 2008; it experienced two quarters of recession as demand for commodity exports dried up. However, Brazil was one of the first emerging markets to begin recovery as consumer and investor confidence caused GDP to hit a growth rate of 7.5% - a 25 year high.

Brazil winning the economic race

In 2011, Brazil overtook the UK as the 7th largest economy in terms of GDP. Brazil not only exports to Asian markets it also attracts significant investment from countries such as China, further driving prosperity.

The recovery of the UK economy cannot happen in isolation; with our key European market bumping along the bottom, it is imperative to look to overseas markets wherever possible. The growth of consumer markets in Brazil holds enormous potential; between 2003 -2014 Brazil’s lower-middle class has grown by 52.1 million, and the A and B demographic jumped by 15.7 million.
