(PRWEB UK) 30 November 2012
Microsoft Gold Partner Sopheon, has gone live on Microsoft Dynamics NAV provided by Microsoft Gold Partner TVision Technology for financial management and group reporting. The two Surrey-based companies embarked on the project to replace disparate systems at Sopheon with a single solution to serve the US, UK and Netherlands based operations.
Sopheon is an international provider of software and services for innovation and product lifecycle management. As such, Sopheon has attained the Microsoft Partner Network – Gold Independent Software Vendor competency, reflecting their ability to use Microsoft tools to build out business solutions.
Although Sopheon has access to “internal use” licences for Dynamics NAV with their partner accreditation, they still did a vigorous evaluation of Dynamics NAV against competitive solutions. Furthermore Sopheon knew that in order to make Dynamics NAV work for the business they needed to select the right implementation partner. “We first came across TVision through their web-site and were impressed by their informative and honest approach,” said Arif Karimjee, Chief Financial Officer, Sopheon. “Following further meetings, which included evaluating NAV against another product and speaking with references, we decided that Dynamics NAV and TVision would deliver the best solution.”
Phase One, replacing the old accounting systems with Dynamics NAV, went live at the end of August. Subsequent planned phases include integrating to Sopheon’s CRM solution and automating more operational systems. The aim is that through use of Dynamics NAV modules and integration, Sopheon will have a business system that better integrates all areas of the business.
“We are delighted to be working with Sopheon,” said Richard Thompson, MD TVision Technology. “Many companies are confused by what Microsoft Gold means; fellow Gold partners know exactly how it works and how to find the right Gold partner for their needs. We’re always pleased to be the partner of choice for Microsoft partners and look forward to a long and fruitful relationship with Sopheon.”
