NetSuite Inc. announced that users of its business software will be able to use a new module, Google OneBox for Enterprise, for added flexibility when searching business data across a company.

Customers can now simultaneously search for data within the NetSuite application suites -- searching their client, vendor, items, event and transaction information -- along with the Internet and other linked data sources using the Google search interface.

"NetSuite customers can query NetSuite and the Web to search for relevant data across multiple related applications and repositories either inside or outside the firewall," said NetSuite vice president of business development Kristen Brown, in a statement. "[This] will allow customers to increase efficiencies across different business processes -- from the front office, through the back office, online and in related repositories."

As an example, NetSuite said an accounts receivable manager could expedite payment by performing a single search using Google OneBox for Enterprise to return all customer, entitlement, service-level and billing details from NetSuite; product documentation from a document repository; and relevant user group postings from an external blog site.
