This week, PPAI has been at SuiteWorld 2023 in Las Vegas, an event tailored toward increasing user knowledge for Oracle’s NetSuite.

Oracle NetSuite is an Affinity Partner of PPAI and as the Association is in effect a model partner for NetSuite, PPAI President and CEO Dale Denham, MAS+, joined a key panel discussion highlighting its partnership with NetSuite. Other members of the panel included 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.

PPAI's efforts to simplify the on-boarding of NetSuite within the promotional products market are seen by Oracle as exemplary. At The PPAI Expo 2023, the Association debuted its NetSuite user group for PPAI members.

PPAI also hosted a NetSuite User Group session as part of the SuiteWorld.

  • Speakers included Denham; Kate Daniels, director of associations and buying groups at NetSuite; Bryan Bendo, principal sales consultant at Oracle/NetSuite; and Sam Hornstein, president of eXtendTech; among others.
  • 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 featured a user-driven Q&A and solicited feedback from the group that PPAI can bring to NetSuite.
