NetSuite has unveiled NetSuite for Android, an app that enables users to access the firm's suite of cloud-based enterprise services via Android-enabled mobile devices.
Launched at the company's SuiteConnect 2014 event, NetSuite for Android allows users to tap into the full functionality of NetSuite's cloud-powered enterprise resource planning (ERP), e-commerce and customer relationship management (CRM) software from anywhere with a mobile data connection.
Demonstrating the app, NetSuite founder and chief technology officer Evan Goldberg said: "Not only have we taken all the capability that we have on iPhone and move it to Android, but we actually have new Android-specific functions."
These additional functions include the ability to use the app offline. Goldberg showed how a user could log expenses without a data connection by taking a photo of a receipt, and then demonstrated how a sales representative could use the app to look up inventory data and sales history of a client while out in the field.
NetSuite for Android will be released on Google Play in December, with a full rollout expected in early 2015.
With NetSuite for Android, the company becomes the latest cloud services vendor to launch a native app for Google's mobile operating system.
While NetSuite has been available as an iOS app for some time, this new launch is indicative of software companies increasingly seeing Android as viable platform for enterprise software.
NetSuite is not alone in taking an iOS-first approach, as rival Salesforce has also recently released Wave, it analytics cloud app for iPhones and iPads.
