Navantis, a North American systems integrator is pleased to be recognized once again as a Canadian IT leader for delivering high business value solutions to enterprise, small-medium business and the public sector. At the prestigious 2014 CDN Channel Elite Awards, Navantis was awarded wins in three categories: Gold for both Best Enterprise and Best Small Business Solution, and Bronze for Best Managed Services. These awards are a testament to Navantis’ leadership in helping clients adopt integrated cloud technologies as customers migrate toward public, private and hybrid cloud scenarios.

“Navantis’ commitment to delivering excellence continues to propel them into the winner’s circle year after year at the CDN Elite Awards,” said Paolo Del Nibletto, Editor, CDN – Computer Dealer News, Canada’s number one IT channel publication and web site.  “They continue to reach new heights in technology solutions while raising the bar for our industry as a whole.”

The top spot for Best Enterprise Solution was a result of Navantis’ ground-breaking multi-tenant CRM solution to manage independent business divisions within the Financial Services Commission of Ontario (FSCO). When FSCO went to market looking for a solution to help manage their MVACF (Motor Vehicle Accident Claims Fund), Navantis showed them how they could do more. By broadening their vision, FSCO was able to harmonize the current and future needs of all three of FSCO’s main pillars of business, breaking down silos with a Microsoft Dynamics CRM solution that could expand to include Pensions, Licensing & Marketing Conduct. The Navantis team designed a highly effective and user-friendly solution. Accessibility and harmonization have maximized efficiencies and minimized frustrations. Delivered on budget and on time, it is receiving such positive press that other government departments have stepped forward to evaluate how they can streamline their own regulatory agency systems. “We have beaten the odds by implementing on time…and faced the challenges brought about by using leading edge technology, a new FSCO business sector (Service Provider), changing leadership landscape and an ever-changing requirements environment through the iterative processes.  We have started to deliver the most ambitious Microsoft Dynamics CRM design implementation ever…. And the team, as a whole, has certainly shined brightly”.  Mario Cruz, Manager, FSCO Business Solutions

For their second Gold Award – Best Small Business Solution – Navantis brought their proven PeopleWorks solution to the College of Registered Psychiatric Nurses of Manitoba (CRPNM), and used their knowledge in the field of healthcare and their understanding of associations and regulatory bodies to provide a membership management solution and self-service portal that has virtually eliminated paper while automating processes, improving security, driving out efficiencies and providing the not-for-profit agency with thousands of dollars in cost savings. Built on Microsoft Dynamics CRM and designed using the familiar look and feel of Outlook and other Microsoft tools, this approach made it easy for users to quickly adapt to the new technology. At go-live, 97% of the membership base opted to use the new online system rather than update their credentials following old, manual processes.

Hospitals or other employers are also benefiting, using the portal to find psychiatric nursing staff, verify that a psychiatric nurse is registered and feeling confident that they are connecting with the right psychiatric nurse at the right time to meet their obligations under the Registered Psychiatric Nurses Act. Registered Psychiatric Nurses can update their own profile, education, and practice hours, along with their employment information so that the College always has accurate and current information.

The Bronze award recognized Navantis’ achievement in the Best Managed Service category for a cloud-based solution that also delivers outstanding value to membership organizations. Once again, their CRM-based PeopleWorks solution delivered the sophisticated workflows, self-service, data and document management and strict compliance to security and privacy required by a regulatory body to manage their members and provide valuable assistance to the public. Implemented for the Motor Vehicle Sales Authority of B.C. (MVSABC), this PeopleWorks solution was particularly effective for meeting the real-time reporting and business intelligence needs of MVSABC.

“Our continued success is a testament to the innovative thinking of our amazing teams at Navantis,” said Andy Papadopoulos, President.  “Their dedication and deep industry acumen have earned respect from our peers and the trust of our customers. We are honoured to receive these awards, and will continue to strive for IT excellence.”
