Handheld Accelerates Global Expansion with NetSuite OneWorld
Founded out of the Scandinavian division of Husky Computers by one of the pioneers of rugged device market, Handheld Group saw its business take off as it expanded internationally to nine different countries and $30 million in revenue from its headquarters in Sweden. Yet, the local accounting software the company had launched with could no longer handle the company’s complexities, stifling growth.
We would not be where we are today without the unified CRM and ERP system that we have with NetSuite. If not for NetSuite, our business would not have scaled as it has.Thomas Löfblad, Vice President of Global Sales and Board member, Handheld Group
