Navicon believes that the future belongs to artificial intelligence and machine learning technologies, that is why we invest a lot of effort in improving our cloud-related competencies».

Navicon was among the first companies in the Russian market to promote the concept of business applications' seamless integration and a complex IT ecosystem based on a unified platform. These solutions help companies monitor both internal and external communication (with the clients, partners and other market players), as well as manage all business data. The largest project, which connected CRM, ERP and BI solutions in the unified infrastructure, was done for R-Pharm, a Russian high-tech pharmaceutical manufacturer. The project got awarded by Microsoft Dynamics Client Club as the Best Complex Project of 2017, and was also recognized as the best CRM project of 2016 as a result of voting in the Russian IT directors’ official community.

The next stage in complex business automation is migration to the newest IT ecosystem, Microsoft Dynamics 365. The platform unifies many specialized modules designed to manage marketing, sales, field staff, company resources and other business aspects. Navicon connects clients both to separate modules (e.g. Sales and Marketing to manage customer relationship) and to the whole Dynamics 365 IT infrastructure so that the client could manage all the corporate data from a single hub.

«Now the Navicon’s focus is shifting towards innovative technologies and tools which will allow our clients to minimize the spending of time and resources on effective data management. In particular, we are interested in the tools based on machine learning, data mining and neural networks. Cloud IT ecosystems developed by Microsoft provide our clients with access to the most innovative IT tools. Moreover, we can be confident in the quality, reliability and scalability of the products we offer. So, we are pleased to grow along with Microsoft and to promote its technologies on the Russian market».
