Navigant Solutions Announces Strategic Alliance with Acumatica to Expedite Cloud ERP Adoption in the Middle East

Dubai, United Arab Emirates — October 12, 2014 – Navigant Solutions LLC, the Middle East’s leading provider of cloud-based ERP, CRM and E-commerce software solutions, announced today a strategic alliance with Acumatica to accelerate cloud ERP adoption in the region. Navigant Solutions will join forces with Acumatica at GITEX Technology Week to demonstrate the company’s most recent release, Acumatica 5.0, and to showcase its unique deployment options. The announcement is among several that the company has made recently to announce partnerships that extend cloud options available to its customers in the Middle East.

Specifically, the Acumatica partnership ensures that Navigant Solutions is in a position to respond more effectively to the needs of the Public sector where data sovereignty and security concerns are dominant. With Acumatica, customers are provided with an option to purchase a SaaS, subscription-based license, or a perpetual traditional license – and to switch between them and back – as needs evolve. The flexibility in deployment strategies provides customers with the benefits of the most innovative Cloud ERP, while retaining the option to host locally. Customers will also benefit from a pricing structure that is based on usage rather than count or number of users, a welcome new approach to help address the needs of small business. Acumatica will compliment Navigant’s line-up of best of breed and trusted cloud solutions such as Box, Celigo, and Silverpop and give the company the ability to address comprehensive end-to-end business needs seamlessly.

“Our partnership with Acumatica will allow us to speed up cloud adoption in the all too important public sector,” said Hadi Yashruti, CEO and President for Navigant Solutions. “The option to host the solution locally, and to retain the flexibility to switch between SaaS and perpetual, helps us address the needs of the market with sensitivity. Our 14-year experience with the cloud, combined with our strategic partnerships, ensures that our solutions are comprehensive, scalable and successfully adopted. We are very excited about our new partnership.”

“The Middle East is a region under extensive transformation. Our partnership with Navigant Solutions aligns Acumatica with the region’s leading cloud ERP vendor to address regional needs with relevance,” said Laurent Dedenis, President International Operations for Acumatica. “Acumatica is uniquely positioned to address the needs of the public and private sectors, especially verticals such as Health Care Services, with innovative options previously unavailable from any of our competitors. Our growth in the Middle East complements our global growth strategy.”

As a Gold Certified Reseller, Navigant Solutions will promote Acumatica’s comprehensive array of products, including its Financial Management Suite, Distribution Management Suite, Project Accounting Suite and Customer Management Suite – with all deployment options available. Building on its experience in the region and a commitment to continually empower the Middle Eastern customer, Navigant Solutions will guide its customers to solutions that are perfect-fit. Navigant Solutions will support deployments in the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Jordan through its regional offices in the region.
