CleanSweep Archive v1.4 Release Notes

CleanSweep Archive latest version is out and it has several big enhancements for our NetSuite customers who are looking to backup their NetSuite data to the cloud or migrate off NetSuite.

First, we have added an enhancement to Archive to support archiving your NetSuite data based on specific subsidiaries.  This is a common need for Private Equity in Mergers and Acquisitions.  When there is a divestiture of a subsidiary asset, commonly, there is a need to only retain data from one or more subsidiaries.  The latest release of CleanSweep Archive supports this use case for those Private Equity NetSuite Customers.

The other major changes in this release were enhancements to foreign currency reporting, bug-fixes and improving the performance of our Archive process.  We can now easily support large NetSuite instances of 1 terabyte and beyond.
