Our Clients Include
"Navigating an enterprise relationship can be difficult, but Blu Banyan has shown an agility in their business process only matched by the agility of their team. In designing a custom solution for Lucky Brand, they have been flexible to meet every need and match every timeline. Blu Banyan has brought custom solutions in both their business partnership and their NetSuite solutions that have allowed us to move quickly and solve a range of issues. The team isn’t afraid to get their hands dirty, move quickly or drive theoretical solutions to the elucidation of practical application. The initial attraction to Blu Banyan was the caliber of resources, including consultants who have a legacy within Retail, NetSuite and other applications. However, within the Blu Banyan model, we have benefited from their collaboration not just in NetSuite but with the end solution in mind, their scope beginning far up stream and ending with the downstream goal in mind."
"We have worked with Blu Banyan on a broad variety of business needs – from complex NetSuite report writing to implementing custom NetSuite solutions to everyday ERP needs. Blu Banyan strives to understand our business complexities in order to provide the NetSuite solution that makes the most sense for our business. They go above and beyond processing our requests and have become true partners in helping us to streamline our business."

"Finding a strong NetSuite expert was a challenge for us. We’ve been working with Blu Banyan going on two years and have found their approach to providing solutions to be thorough, practical, and savvy. A great combination of technical know-how with a business mindset, they have been professional, reliable and available whenever needed. Dao and Jan have proven to be truly a valuable resource to us as our business continues to evolve and grow."
"Dao and Jan implemented NetSuite for two of my businesses, Soligent Distribution and Sunpoint Energy. They did a spectacular job reducing our IT costs significantly, helping streamline processes, and making the system intuitive for my team."
"As former CFO of Soligent, I appointed Dao and hired Jan to implement NetSuite to replace a burdensome and expensive Oracle ERP system. The project was completed on time and on budget. The results were as promised and management concluded that NetSuite was in part responsible for salvaging a business that was over focused on a failed tier 1 ERP system. I highly recommend Dao and Jan for your NetSuite requirements."
"I had the pleasure of working with the Principals of Blu Banyan during a critical period when I served as President of a large distribution company. The company had a seriously failed ERP installation and the cost of that installation and trying to repair and maintain it had gotten out of control. When it was decided to replace it, we needed someone to drive the process and someone to make certain that the system and applications we selected could come in on time and budget.
We selected NetSuite and after a lot of discussion we had Dao and Jan heading our project. We also realized that we had a short time for completion and a limited budget. To say that these two individuals brought a focused professional effort to the project would be an understatement. They brought the project in on time and on budget, while satisfying the varying needs of both company management and multiple groups of users. They listened to the conflicting desires of the users and on a continuous basis, negotiated the compromises that made the system successful. They kept management informed and were very timely in getting management to make necessary decisions that did not delay the project.
While our old system had problems that had lasted for literally years, Dao and Jan, over a six month period completed a project that functioned as specified upon completion. I would not hesitate to use them again for any technology project that they could take on. It would be a success for any of their clients."
