NetSuite, a provider of hosted enterprise software, is offering users of the Salesforce.com enterprise software an alternative which it claims is 50% cheaper.
The offer covers on-demand sales, customer relationship management and enterprise resource planning systems.
NetSuite said companies considering or using Salesforce.com's standalone sales force automation (SFA) applications, or those companies considering Salesforce.com professional and enterprise editions for the first time, would be offered an alternative that would "beat any subscription estimate provided by Salesforce.com by half".
For customers renewing their Salesforce.com professional and enterprise edition subscriptions, NetSuite said it "will cut the renewal price in half and provide a bevy of free data migration services".
The offer covers NetSuite's NetCRM offering, as well as the company's complete ERP/CRM/eCommerce NetSuite solution. The offer is open until the end of March.
Salesforce.com is one of the most established web on-demand business processing software companies, and NetSuite is starting some way back when it comes to market share.
