What is NetSuite Partner Relationship Management?

NetSuite CRM partner relationship management (PRM) capabilities establish a real-time information flow that enhances visibility and boosts partner collaboration. NetSuite gives you full control over every element of the partner-focused sales and marketing process, including joint marketing campaigns, lead management, sales forecasting, pipeline management, order processing and partner commissions and royalties. NetSuite’s PRM solution creates a conduit between partners and your organization to improve customer satisfaction and drive revenue.

Partner Commissions and Royalties
