Fast Growing Woman-Owned Business Leaves Deltek for Microsoft’s Premier Solution for Government Contractor ERP, Financial Management and Project Accounting

December 8, 2010 (Reston, VA)— Pleasant Valley Business Solutions (PVBS), Microsoft’s premier solution provider for government contractor ERP, financial management, and project accounting, announced today that fast-growing, woman-owned government contractor Imagine One (Colonial Beach, VA) has moved to its Microsoft Dynamics NAV for Government Contractors.

Imagine One Vice President of Corporate Operations Ann Graziano said that Imagine One wanted to move to the Microsoft platform for some time and that it had taken its former application “as far as it could go.” She said that the Microsoft Dynamics NAV solution is better suited to make more use of the large amount of financial and contract data Imagine One had collected over the years.

“We faced many limitations in getting access to the data to do roll ups, analytics or to even send out reports to the field,” said Ms. Graziano. “We have a lot of employees and customers who we need to get reports to and it became increasingly difficult to do so effectively. We needed an enterprise business solution that could help us utilize all of the important data we had available to us.”

Ms. Graziano said that among the reasons Imagine One chose the Microsoft Dynamics NAV offering was the look and feel of the solution, which is very similar to the common Microsoft applications that her staff used every day. She also said the dashboards that were a part of Microsoft Dynamics NAV would help them tell at a glance which contracts were being effectively utilized and thus present a “bigger picture” option than she currently gets.

She also said that since Imagine One is a small business that is growing into a large one, they need to be able to do better forecasting, to see where the business is going and produce “what if” scenarios without spending all of their time massaging the data. She said that Microsoft Dynamics NAV will make this process go much easier.

PVBS CEO Bernard Mustafa said, “Many of our customers come to us with similar challenges to Imagine One in that they have a lot of data that they can’t get to and do anything with. Microsoft Dynamics NAV provides an effective way for them to use the data in advanced analytics and project reporting to help them manage and grow both their government and commercial business.”
