At its annual contest, Microsoft defines and awards such of its partner companies that create the most innovative and popular solutions based on Microsoft technologies.

The winners are those who efficiently resolve business tasks and problems for their clients by means of Microsoft technologies, thus helping the clients to digitally transform their businesses.
Navicon develops its own industry-specific solutions, based on Microsoft platforms, for such sectors as the pharmaceutical industry, FMCG, finance, manufacturing, etc. By 2017, the integrator's solutions were available in Microsoft Azure cloud as well as based on Dynamics 365. The cloud technologies helped Navicon's clients to save on the installation and maintenance of IT infrastructure, and to cut license costs – which, in turn, has boosted the clients' interest in IT solutions. In fact, the Navicon’s clients got the solutions which are powerful, easily scalable and upgradable, and whose operation is ensured by a global reliable supplier.
Furthermore, when a company is using Microsoft cloud solutions, it can build an IT ecosystem as smoothly as possible: the modules responsible for different tasks can be easily integrated not only with each other but also with external ERP or analytical systems. For instance, a complex CRM infrastructure for visa centers' automation – Navicon Visa Center – automates the whole process of visa application and approval. The single solution encompasses all the stages of the customer interaction cycle, including the processing and printout of electronic documents submitted by the applicants, and also the sales analytics.
Besides, in 2017-2018 Navicon has developed a set of smart solutions for customer demand management, customer churn prevention and other business tasks. For that, the company employed the next-generation tools of Microsoft Azure.
Navicon had already become Microsoft Gold Partner in cloud solutions, which had been the 8th Microsoft Gold status for the integrator. Besides, in 2017 Navicon became the Microsoft Partner of the Year in Russia and joined Microsoft Inner Circle – a group of the Corporation’s top partners dealing with Microsoft Dynamics platforms.
