While the economy is still a challenge, optimism among manufacturers has increased significantly in the past two years. Manufacturers are beginning to shift attention away from cost reduction to focus on investing to create new products and grow revenue from both new and existing customers. In a recent survey, NetSuite found that over 75% of manufacturing companies expected their business to improve in the near term. Now, 60% are focused on revenue growth and cost savings as key objectives, and about 30% are focused primarily on revenue growth. NetSuite delivers robust functionality and a perfectly balanced combination of scalability, flexibility, and cost-e ctiveness to help manufacturers grow revenue, control costs, and provide customers better products and services.
