Oracle NetSuite, one of the world’s leading providers of cloud-based financials / ERP, HR, Professional Services Automation (PSA) and omnichannel commerce software suites, today announced that ROLI, a music technology innovator and maker of the award-winning Seaboard instrument, has implemented NetSuite OneWorld to manage critical business processes including financials, inventory management, order management, CRM, multi-currency management for the British pound, Euro and US dollar, and multi-subsidiary management for three subsidiaries in the UK and two in the US. As a result of its implementation of NetSuite OneWorld in September 2016, ROLI is better positioned to take advantage of rapid sales growth as innovative products like the Seaboard Block and Lightpad Block become more popular to music-makers.
Founded in 2009 in London, ROLI has revolutionized the world of musical instruments. Its newest product, Seaboard Block, is the most portable and versatile model of the multi-award-winning Seaboard, a digital instrument that is an evolution of the piano keyboard. Seaboards replace the white and black keys of a piano with a pliable, touch-responsive surface that lets musicians control sound in far more ways than they can on acoustic or electronic instruments. Last year ROLI also launched BLOCKS, a modular music-making system that allows musicians to connect musical Blocks together and build their instrument as they go. As demand for its products took off, ROLI determined that it needed more comprehensive and professional business systems to meet the opportunities of its next phase of growth.
ROLI selected NetSuite OneWorld due to its 360-degree customer view, inventory management and cloud-based architecture. NetSuite OneWorld provides the flexibility, agility and scalability ROLI needed for continued growth and a real-time view of business performance.
“As a company, ROLI is focused on innovation, growth and delivering world-class experiences for its customers and music lovers everywhere,” said Mark Woodhams, Managing Director, EMEA for Oracle NetSuite. “NetSuite OneWorld is an ideal fit for those goals, as a flexible, scalable solution with global reach that can serve as the foundation to continue to build upon its success.”
