NetSuite Inc., the industry's leading provider of financials and ERP software suites, and Baker Tilly LLP, a full service accounting and advisory firm, announced in a press release yesterday, that Baker Tilly has joined the NetSuite (News - Alert) Solution Provider program to launch a Baker Tilly cloud computing consulting practice.
The new cloud computing practice will help to increase Baker Tilly's solution and systems integration experience to provide both public and private companies, with a range of customized accounting and regulatory compliance solutions, powered by NetSuite's leading cloud computing applications for financials, enterprise resource planning (ERP) and customer relationship management (CRM), a press release stated.
Baker Tilly is currently ranked the 13th largest accounting and consulting firm in the U.S., according to the 2010 Accounting Today "Top 100 Firms." Baker Tilly has also received numerous types of awards over the years for its continuous growth, solid position with the financial stratosphere, and for being a leader in the industry.
In order to gain ground in the emerging cloud solutions marketplace, Baker Tilly began the process of compiling detailed market research to make sure the right ERP partnership was formed.
NetSuite quickly showed itself to be the best choice. Joining with NetSuite also gives Baker Tilly admission to one of the world's most advanced platform-as-a-service (PaaS), as well as the ability to use sophisticated technological resources located in cloud computing. NetSuite's PaaS allows Baker Tilly to deliver ERP solutions to clients in these industries, a release stated.
