PPAI has positioned itself to be a helpful resource for members looking to integrate or learn best practices for Oracle NetSuite, a valuable ERP option for promo companies. As such, the Association will be present at SuiteWorld 2023. The event, tailored toward increasing user knowledge for Oracle’s NetSuite, will be held October 16-19 in Las Vegas.

A Model For Associations

Denham will join a key panel discussion on Monday, Oct. 16, highlighting PPAI’s partnership with NetSuite.

  • More than 1,500 SuiteWorld attendees have registered for the discussion, which will explain why associations such as PPAI are tailored to advancing digital transformation among their member companies.
  • PPAI’s efforts to simplify the on-boarding of NetSuite within the promotional products market are seen by Oracle as exemplary.

The NetSuite User Group

At The PPAI Expo 2023, the Association debuted its NetSuite user group for PPAI members.

NetSuite is a powerful tool for promo companies, but it’s one that can mean different things for different companies. The user group was created to provide the knowledge and deliberateness that its integration process and daily use requires.

PPAI believes the best solution to this is obvious: dialogue.

The NetSuite user group is meant to create an environment for:

  • Shared best practices.
  • Tips for maximizing the platform.
  • Potential troubleshooting.
  • Networking surrounding NetSuite

Speakers at the initial user group included leaders from Oracle/NetSuite, eXtendTech, alphabroder and City Apparel.

“We ultimately want organizations to exhibit independent success with NetSuite to leverage the power of the platform to solve issues that are specific to their organizations,” says Sam Hornstein, president of eXtendTech, who is well experienced in NetSuite and an early proponent and participant of the user group in its planning period.

  • Joining PPAI’s NetSuite user group also means access to the group’s Microsoft Teams channel for continued dialogue and potential outsourcing advice for troubleshooting scenarios.
  • The NetSuite user group has held ‘Ask Me Anything’ sessions moderated by Nick DiNicola, PPAI’s digital transformation manager, and featuring NetSuite experts.

PPAI User Group At SuiteWorld

SuiteWorld 2023, hosted by Oracle NetSuite at Caesar’s Forum, is an event dedicated to providing hands-on NetSuite training.

  • PPAI’s NetSuite user group will be on hand at SuiteWorld for a session scheduled for 12:30 – 3 pm on Tuesday, October 17, in Ceasar’s Forum 313.
  • Planned speakers at the PPAI NetSuite user group include Denham, Kate Daniels, director of associations and buying groups at NetSuite; Bryan Bendo, principal sales consultant at Oracle/NetSuite; Hornstein of eXtendTech and more.
  • Topics include technical tips and tricks, product updates, pain points and solutions, and, from the partner community, an industry overview and Suite apps for promo. The session will also feature a user-driven Q&A and soliciting feedback from the group that PPAI can bring to NetSuite.

In addition to the PPAI user group, Denham will also participate in a panel at SuiteWorld 2023 concerning the dynamics around partnerships with Oracle NetSuite. Other panelists with Denham include Denise Bailey, business systems consulting practice leader at Elliott Davis; Russel Uyeda, technology operating partner at HGGC and Blake Disiere, associate director of business operations at Vista Equity Partners.
