Pervasive and NetSuite Score High with Wonderlic for Enterprise-Class Integration Integration Links NetSuite's Cloud Computing Platform with Wonderlic's Warehouse Management System for Robust ROI


AUSTIN, Texas, May 10, 2010 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Pervasive Software(R) Inc.

(NASDAQ: PVSW), a global leader in cloud-based and on-premises data integration, today announced that Wonderlic, Inc., a leading provider of pre-screening tools and employee assessments for over seventy years, has implemented Pervasive Data Integrator(TM) to power NetSuite integration with the applications for their warehouse facilities.

Pervasive Data Integrator seamlessly integrates Wonderlic's outsourced warehouse facilities with NetSuite's Enterprise ERP System via NetSuite's SuiteCloud development platform. As orders are placed into NetSuite, Pervasive software automatically notifies systems at the warehouse to trigger tracking and fulfillment activities, which in turn integrates back into NetSuite to generate invoicing.

Aaron Judy, vice president, Technology and Operations for Wonderlic.

The integrated systems yield more efficient operations and notable cost savings for Wonderlic. "As an example, we recently deployed inventory management functions on NetSuite, including sales order fulfillment," said Judy. "By completing this effort, we've reduced expenses by over 30 percent, and at that rate our return on investment would be achieved within the first twelve months of operation." "The integration between NetSuite and Wonderlic's warehouse management system shows how Pervasive leverages our suite of applications to deliver innovative enterprise solutions that span business processes and systems," said Guido Haarmans, Vice President Developer Programs for NetSuite. "We look forward to continuing our relationship with Pervasive and helping customers further reduce IT costs and improve efficiencies."
