MINNEAPOLIS (May 17, 2021) – United Art and Education has chosen BTM Global, a premier provider of system integration and development services, to implement Oracle NetSuite. With NetSuite, United Art and Education will be able to streamline business operations and seamlessly connect in-store and online purchases to better serve its growing customer base.
