Built on the SuiteCloud Platform, InsideView for NetSuite Integrates

Social Intelligence into Core Business Processes

San Francisco, Calif. (Nov. 10, 2009) – InsideView, a Sales 2.0 leader, and
NetSuite (NYSE: N), a leading vendor of cloud computing business software
suites, today announced InsideView for NetSuite, the first Social
Intelligence application to bring social media to both CRM and core
ERP-driven business processes, those that are essential to driving the
success or failure of every business. InsideView for NetSuite now allows
NetSuite users to have instant access to relevant intelligence harvested
from emerging social media, such as Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, Jigsaw and
NetProspex, as well as editorial sources, such as Thomson Reuters and
Capital IQ (a Standard & Poor’s Company), directly within NetSuite,
empowering them to significantly improve business efficiencies across sales,
marketing, billing, procurement, and HR operations.

InsideView for NetSuite was built using NetSuite’s SuiteCloud development
platform and is the first social intelligence application delivered natively
within NetSuite. The new application expands the NetSuite-InsideView
partnership beyond its original sales intelligence focus to deliver the
power of social intelligence throughout both front-office sales and
marketing and back-office financial operations. By leveraging the social
intelligence delivered by InsideView directly within the NetSuite interface,
businesses can gain new insights into their customers, prospects, employees
and vendors to realize cross-enterprise productivity improvements.

InsideView for NetSuite brings a host of benefits to businesses, including
the ability to:

* Proactively monitor the financial health of customers and partners
to assess payment risk and improve collections processes;

* Leverage social media “buzz” to gauge suppliers’ brand reputation,
customer satisfaction, and service levels and assess supply chain risk;

* Improve high-end selling through social and business connections to
C-level executives;

* Help sales professionals uncover new customer engagement
opportunities faster with alerts on key business events;

* Integrate social profile information to engage job candidates across
multiple channels, including Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter;

* Increase cross-enterprise productivity by tapping into accurate,
relevant and timely business insights directly within the NetSuite user

“InsideView is an excellent example of how a partner can leverage SuiteCloud
to optimize business processes across the company,” said Guido Haarmans,
vice president, SuiteCloud Developer Network of NetSuite. “The social
intelligence delivered by InsideView provides the tools for companies to
significantly increase sales productivity, and improve billing, procurement
and recruiting efforts for our customers.”

“Our expanded partnership with NetSuite underscores the increasing relevance
of social data throughout business operations,” said Umberto Milletti,
founder and chief executive officer of InsideView. “NetSuite is leading the
charge by making social intelligence available to its entire user base to
drive significant business efficiencies.”

Building on NetSuite allows InsideView to go beyond Social CRM for sales and
marketing workflows and extend into Social ERP optimized for back-office
operations such as:

. Billing / Collections: Automated monitoring of financial events
such as funding developments, analyst ratings, earnings calls, cost cutting,
bankruptcy, etc., allows for the real-time prioritization of accounts and
collections efforts while relationship mining helps expedite billing issues.

. Procurement: Consolidated contact search allows for easier
resolution of bidding, pricing, or payment issues and integrated competitor
profiles help identify and evaluate other potential vendors.

. Recruiting: Automated monitoring of talent acquisition
opportunities across target companies and consolidated contact search assist
in sourcing candidates by title, industry, company size, key event and
specific competitors.
