Navigator Business Solutions: Delivering SAP Cloud Software Across North America

Grant Fraser, CEO The Hype Cycle, a popular graphical tool for assessing specific technologies shows that the cloud industry has attained a certain level of maturity.The assessment is based on the observation that several critical issues with the cloud have been addressed in such a way that the risk level has decreased considerably. However, the industry still has several unsolved issues, and you should still do extensive research. Given the way things are, firms like Navigator Business Solutions (NBS-US.COM)with hardcore cloud experience could bring in massive changes into the sector.

Since mid-2009, Navigator Business Solutions, has had their focus on Cloud based solutions for businesses, specifically SAP Business One Cloud and SAP Business ByDesign. They entered the cloud sector when the technology was in its nascent stage, with a humble beginning with zero cloud customers. Today, the firm has 75 percent of their new customers in the cloud sector, and for the last three years have been the top SAP cloud partner in North America. The firm provides specific business solutions to small to mid-sized companies and global leaders such as SkullCandy, Freudenberg Oil & Gas, Campbell’s Soup, Mophie, Zhena’s Gypsy Tea and many others inthe supply chain and professional services sectors.

The majority of customers are searching integrated solutions, from Procure to Pay or Lead to Cash, and also the entire range of services that a small or mid-sized company could afford.

The Critical Success Factors

Navigator Business Solutions, founded in 2005, possess more Cloud experience than the next ten SAP cloud partners together. With the goal to create the latest tools with the most recent business models, cloud-based implementation practices are enabled, whereas many companies are still relying on the on-premises solutions. Among many companies that emphasize on-premises solutions and hosting, the firm stands out as providers of true cloud experience. In addition, the services are available at exceptionally low rates in comparison with the industry standards.
“A supply chain company with 15 users coming off Quick Books could “go-live” with SAP software for as little as $2,000 a month for subscription and as little as $30,000 in implementation. Of course, this depends on the scope of the project, the size of the company, locations, users, etc, but we offer extreme value at a fixed price”, says Grant Fraser, President& CEO. Navigator Business Solutions has also earned an unmatched reputation as developers of SAP extensions, like iConnect, which serves as off-the-shelf integrating platform for shipping, credit card, sales tax, EDI, eCommerce,SalesForce etc.

Over the years, the firm has successfully built a large technological network connecting geographies like Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Miami, New York, Toronto, Los Angeles, Seattle and countries such as France, Germany, and China.

Goals Set for the Future
