Four Points Technology Outgrows QuickBooks and Selects Microsoft Dynamics NAV to Streamline Sales and Accounting Processes
Reston, VA (December 10, 2008) – Pleasant Valley Business Solutions (PVBS), Microsoft’s leading provider of government contractor ERP, financial management and project accounting solutions, announced that Four Points Technology Corporation (Chantilly, VA) has selected Microsoft Dynamics NAV for Government Contractors from PVBS as its enterprise financial management solution. Four Points Technology (Four Points) is a Service-Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business (SDVOSB) that provides a large suite of products and services to the Federal Government.
Entrepreneur Magazine recognized Four Points as the third fastest growing technology small business in America and the 14th fastest growing small business in America in 2007. In addition, Entrepreneur Magazine recognized Four Points Technology as the third fastest growing IT Company in America.
Four Points serves numerous Federal agencies including the Veteran’s Affairs and the Departments of Agriculture, Labor, and Treasury. In addition to offering many leading products from manufacturers such as Dell, Canon, and HP, the company provides a large set of services including network security, software development, help desk, training, and systems analysis.
David Gilchrist, President and CEO of Four Points, said his accounting department recognized early on that it would quickly surpass the capabilities of its QuickBooks implementation. Mr. Gilchrist also had major concerns when the company started winning services contracts since QuickBooks does not adequately support professional services. Four Points also knew that it needed a solution that was DCAA-compliant (Defense Contract Audit Agency) and found that capability in Microsoft Dynamics NAV.
Four Points needed to improve how it managed its sales process, which it had been doing with a combination of Microsoft Excel spreadsheets and QuickBooks. Mr. Gilchrist said QuickBooks’ limitations were slowing his business down. “With QuickBooks, you can’t get business snapshots and timely updates, which are critical to running a fast-growing business.”
“We needed a system that could go from sales quote to invoice more effectively as well as making the sales order modification process go more smoothly. We were very excited to see that Microsoft Dynamics NAV could do all of this as well as handling all of our financial management requirements,” said Mr. Gilchrist.
“We’re impressed by how easily the solution generates financial reports and how strong the quoting capabilities are,” he said. “It’s a very tightly integrated solution.”
Bernard Mustafa, CEO and President at PVBS said, “Many product companies that sell to the Federal government will start offering services at some point. Four Points is another example of a fast growing company that wanted the only Microsoft-branded accounting solution for government solutions providers that handles both product sales and professional services.”
