NetSuite OneWorld Provides Smart Heart Health Solution Provider Qardio with Support Across 40 Countries
NetSuite Inc., the industry’s leading provider of cloud-based financials / ERP and omnichannel commerce software suites, today announced that fast growing smart health solution provider Qardio has implemented NetSuite OneWorld to fuel its business growth and expansion into new global markets. Qardio uses NetSuite OneWorld to manage its mission-critical business processes including accounting, financial consolidation, procure to pay, order management, inventory management, customer relationship management (CRM), multi-currency (US Dollars, British Pounds, Euros), and multi-country tax compliance across its head office in San Francisco, and subsidiaries in the UK, the Netherlands and Asia.
The company sells direct to consumers via its ecommerce website and sells its products through large retailers such as Apple Store, Target, Best Buy, Amazon and Walgreens. With NetSuite OneWorld, Qardio is able to improve operational efficiency, reduce IT costs, and gain real-time insights into its business performance with a 360-degree view of its customers. NetSuite OneWorld delivers the scalability, agility and flexibility Qardio needs to enter new markets, expand operations and grow revenue.
Qardio prides itself on transforming the healthcare industry with simpler, smarter and more effective solutions for everyone: patients, doctors and healthcare providers. Qardio’s mission is to revolutionise personal health monitoring by bringing innovative technologies with high-end design that fit effortlessly into its users lives. The products range from monitoring blood pressure and medical grade ECGs, to wireless weight measurement. All the data collected can be shared with doctors, family or friends, making managing health more enjoyable and part of daily life.
As its business grows exponentially, Qardio needed an ERP software solution that could align with its global expansion ambitions. Previously, the accounting was outsourced to a third party in the US. But with the rapid growth, different inventory locations and several legal entities in different countries, this was no longer sustainable and scalable.
“The complexity of the business for our previous accounting partner was just getting too big,” said Jorrit Kelderman, Qardio’s CFO. “We really needed to have our own ERP software. As we are a US company with operations around the world, we wanted to have a US-based ERP system with excellent international capabilities. For us, it was really important to have billing, inventory reconciliation, taxes, accounting and consolidation in one place. NetSuite OneWorld’s flexibility, agility and scalability made it a clear winner and it allows our business to expand at an unprecedented rate.”
Since Qardio’s global finance activities are managed mostly from out of the Netherlands, the company worked with local NetSuite partner Zone & Co (formerly Fast Four) to purchase and implement NetSuite OneWorld. Zone & Co is a dedicated and successful NetSuite solution partner with a number of customers in the region.
With support for 190 currencies, 20 languages, and automated tax compliance in over 100 countries, NetSuite OneWorld can bring Qardio lots of features and benefits.
