The Undiscovered Country

spaceship flying past a planet

Over two years ago TribeHR, the first truly social HCMS, was acquired by NetSuite, a cloud ERP adventurer eager to incorporate our beautiful interface and innovative social user experience into their enterprise platform.

Since then, we have shared much exploration, experimentation and integration. (Sooo much integration!)

Now, the time has come to accept full symbiosis with the mothership. TribeHR still exists within the starship fleet that is NetSuite ERP, but it no longer ventures forth alone into undiscovered country and uncharted space. As such, it will no longer maintain a separate shipblog.

Two years ago, TribeHR and NetSuite quickly meshed to become NetSuite TribeHR—today we are truly one. Together we will explore the cloud-ERP galaxy, bringing our unparalleled, unified suite to all life-forms we encounter. Let the journey begin.


Okay, so shutting down the individual TribeHR blog and integrating it into NetSuite Blogs probably doesn’t strike you as particularly dramatic. But, after writing more than 300 unique articles for the TribeHR blog, it feels like the end of an era to me.

We hope you’ve enjoyed exploring social HCM as much as we have and that you’ll continue to journey with us as we move forward into the broader universe of ERP integrated HCM.

This is TribeHR and Stephanie Reyes signing off.

Live long and prosper—and may the force be with you.
