NetSuite’s Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution is an energy-saving alternative to traditional on-premise ERP and CRM software solutions. According to a recent sustainability impact study by Greenspace (www.greenspacesupply.com), by eliminating the need for on-premise hardware, NetSuite’s centralised data center helps companies substantially reduce energy consumption and costs:

  • Reduced server room electricity consumption: NetSuite customers reduce their overall server room electric consumption by 99%, resulting in an average cost reduction of £6,700 per year
  • Total reduced costs: Between energy savings and reduced needs for software, hardware, maintenance, personnel and occupancy, NetSuite customers reduce their costs by as much as £65,000 per year
  • Reduced electricity consumption: NetSuite’s approach saves the company and its more than 6,000 customers nearly 600 million kilowatt-hours (kWh) per year—equal to the average annual electricity consumption of 56,000 homes.

As a result, our customers can overcome the environmental and capital costs of hardware deployments. They don’t have to own and operate climate-controlled data centres full of servers that house their accounting, sales, inventory and ecommerce software systems. Nor do they need additional power and cooling to keep those data centres running at optimal efficiency—not to mention the additional costs of implementation, maintenance and upgrades.

The result? Companies not only save money, but become green in the process. That means an environmentally-friendly approach to software—less overall energy use, fewer emissions and smarter thinking about to manage technology.

It’s environmental policy that pays a bottom-line dividend – and the frogs will thank you too.
