Q&A with Paul Buck, President

Elegant Cloud Solutions works with quickly growing software, medical device and tech companies to upgrade their financial systems without slowing down their growth. By moving to the cloud with NetSuite, our clients have chosen a platform that gives them unlimited ability to scale.

What qualifies your company as the VAR of the month?

Elegant Cloud Solutions is a growing team of finance professionals, including two former CFOs, who believe that finance and other business functions - particularly for quickly growing software, medical device and tech companies - work better in the cloud.

What makes your company successful?

We focus on delivering “elegant” solutions. To us, this means best-of-breed applications and simple, uncomplicated implementations. We believe that NetSuite is pretty great right out of the box and that over-zealous scripting creates problems for our clients down the road. We have rescued several over-customised NetSuite implementations and we avoid the same mistakes.

We try to pre-select customers who we know we can delight. This means that we won’t wedge NetSuite into a bad fit - it’s bad for our reputation and bad for business.

Our customers agree; we’re proud that Hootsuite, Zymeworks, Light Integra and Clarius Mobile Health are delighted with our work.

How are you growing your firm? How do you plan to continue to grow?

We’ve been pretty local so far, but are reaching out farther afield. We’ll continue to hire great people as we find them - we’ve doubled our team this year - which will enable us to serve clients where NetSuite is the best fit for their business, wherever they are.

What opportunities do you see in the market?

We believe that NetSuite is the best-fit ERP for quickly growing software, medical device and tech firms. We’re thrilled that these kinds of companies incubate in places where good coffee and craft beer are easy to find but even happier that our clients in these industries are smart, practical, well-informed and make good choices for their businesses. More often than not, that choice involves NetSuite and we’re happy to help.
