AimaSoft, Inc. today announced that it has become a partner of NetSuite’s SuiteFlex Developer Program. AimaSoft has extended NetSuite’s One System Architecture with new capabilities to meet the needs of businesses requiring better Bills of Materials (BOM) Management and ERP/CAD Integration. The SuiteFlex Development platform goes beyond other on-demand development environments by being the first to allow third party applications to integrate rich transaction data – orders, inventory, invoices and shipments – with their applications, and enable customers and third-party developers to build new workflows and applications that can look and operate as if NetSuite’s own developers wrote them.
Because NetSuite holds critical business data of a company – orders, invoices, website transactions, shipping records, time tracking, and payroll data – the applications that are built on it using SuiteFlex are powerful and business critical. For example, with AimaSoft, its award-winning BOMLink application allows a manufacturer to extend the power of NetSuite into its design department, by giving AutoCAD designers access to NetSuite parts information inside of AutoCAD. EntraLink, AimaSoft's Master Data Management framework, allows a manufacturer to query the NetSuite database, find and locate parts and assemblies, and view any document, such as CAD (2D & 3D) files, manuals, operations, PDF files, .XLs and any other document just by clicking on the part number. EntraLink also supports instant BOM creation by enabling users to drag and drop parts from their database, enabling accurate, nested BOMs which can be used for quoting, production, or design. This capability assists any mid-level SMB manufacturer towards a more efficient manufacturing environment.
AimaSoft is software developer specializing in Master Data Management for manufacturers, leveraging a company’s investment in ERP and other systems, by linking disparate systems in a company together into one framework application.
"We were pleased to become a NetSuite partner," said Mark James, Director of Business Development, AimSoft. "AimaSoft has assisted many companies in leveraging their investment in business solutions such as NetSuite, by integrating their ERP with their design department, bringing the power of ERP into AutoCAD, Inventor, SolidWorks, or any other CAD application. Leveraging their Master Data inside NetSuite helps ensure that the design BOM is in sync with the manufacturing BOM at all times, eliminating double or triple entry, reducing manufacturing errors, and enabling a manufacturer to reuse their designs intelligently."
About SuiteFlex and NetSuite’s SuiteFlex Developer Program
SuiteFlex is an application development platform that enables the creation of third-party vertical applications within NetSuite, as well as business process customization for any end-user company. SuiteFlex includes several industry technology advances and innovations including additions to SuiteScript – which allows for on demand programming using only a web browser on a device with Internet access. As a part of SuiteScript, NetSuite introduced Suitelets and SuiteScript UI Objects, allowing customers and third-party developers to build new workflows and applications that can look and operate as if NetSuite's own developers wrote them. In addition, SuiteFlex introduces a dramatic new concept for the Software as a Service market — "Service as Software," SuiteBundler — to deliver new integrated vertical solutions by packaging their Suitelets and other extensions with NetSuite's core ERP/CRM/Ecommerce application. SuiteBundler enables solution providers to embed their industry-best practices, knowledge and applications — traditionally delivered as one-off services — into the actual NetSuite application for verticals in a repeatable fashion.
NetSuite’s SuiteFlex Developer Program is established to help solution providers achieve success in vertical markets by bringing them the following:
• Template development account with complete SuiteFlex customization, development and integration capabilities and access to the entire NetSuite suite of applications. Developers can create and test their customizations, applications and integrations in this account and use it as a template for a repeatable solution they can deploy to multiple customers;
• Online product and technical documentation and online product training;
• Phone and email technical support;
• Participation in the SuiteFlex developer forum;
• Eligibility to join NetSuite's Referral Program;
• Ability to apply for inclusion in the SuiteFlex Solutions directory.
