 A provider of cloud-based financials, NetSuite, announced today the specifics about the recent work it has done to curtail expensive software hairballs. These “hairballs” can do extreme damage to companies system as they can greatly reduce productivity, profitability and innovation, a press release stated.

New hairball tools have be developed including a downloadable version of the Hairball Elimination Kit and a variety of case studies representing to businesses a step-by-step procedure on how to get rid of Software Hairball Syndrome while increasing productivity, and enhancing reporting.

Business software hairballs are defined as the messy inefficient, ineffective applications and middleware that ultimately reduce productivity and increase costs due to brittle integration, incompatible processes, low productivity and high maintenance costs, as stated in a press release.

Instructions provided by the Hairball Elimination Kit walk businesses through the process of being able to quickly self-identify data silos, wasteful and error-prone data entry, redundant processes, and take the first important steps towards purging these hairballs from their business software systems for good, the press release revealed.

Some major companies that are already particpating in this program include Advantage Sign Supply, the Chefs Toolbox, Clickstop, avVenta Worldwide and These businesses join the ranks of thousands of other businesses that will automatically reap the benefits from NetSuite's (News - Alert) cloud business applications.

In a press release, NetSuite Chief Marketing Officer David Downing commented, “Companies should know that they need not suffer the slow growth, high costs and inefficiencies that software hairballs invariably create. NetSuite leads the fight to eliminate Microsoft (News - Alert) Dynamics GP hairballs with the world's leading cloud-based business management software suite, and with the Hairball Elimination Kit, executives can join us in eradicating these enemies of profit and expansion".

A company that has already seen the great effect the kit can give is the Chefs Toolbox located in Sydney, Australia. This business distributes and sells cookware in Australia, New Zealand, and the U.S. As the company and its earnings grew in size, the current software the company was utilizing was determined to be extremely limited. The Chefs Toolbox then decided to a make a huge change and began using Microsoft Dynamics Great Plains. Expanding into the US along with a new sales model pushed the company to make the tough decision to cut ties with Dynamics GP and begin using NetSuite OneWorld.

Using NetSuite OneWorld saves The Chefs Toolbox an astounding amount of money, as well as completely eliminating the use of IT servers. David Mills, founder of the Chefs Toolbox stated in a press release, "We quickly realized just how deep NetSuite's functionality is, and how much we would benefit from the cloud-based delivery. NetSuite is powerful enough for us to enhance, refine, and grow with it."

Using NetSuite Hairball Elimation Kit essentially benefits businesses in every way imaginable.
