NetSuite, an on-demand provider of business management software applications, has rolled out their first partner program with 30 business partners in 14 different industries.

"Last spring we rolled everything into the NetFlex platform -- configuration, customization and an application builder so other companies could build entirely new applications within NetSuite," said Sean Rollings, senior director of product marketing at NetSuite.

As all partners will be using this Standard Object Access Protocol platform, NetFlex, to build their third-party applications on top of NetSuite's base accounting, customer relationship management and e-commerce applications, the partner program was dubbed the NetFlex Application Program.

Partners who have already joined the program are in such industries as automotive services, e-commerce, health care, payroll services, professional services and retail.

"These are not core processes to businesses, they are addressing very specific needs in a certain industries," said Rollings.

Future partners can join the NetFlex Application Program free of charge during the next three months, and applications received in the next six months will be certified free of charge. After three months, there will be a $7,500 charge to join the program for each application certified.
