Company Invests in Microsoft’s Fastest Growing Solution for Government Contractors to Support its Rapid Growth

May 29, 2010 (Reston, VA)— Pleasant Valley Business Solutions (PVBS) announced today that fast-growing government contractor Transquest Federal Systems (Westlake Village, CA and Columbia, MD) became a customer.  PVBS recently opened an office in Irvine, CA to support its burgeoning sales in Southern California to companies such as Transquest Federal. PVBS offers the premier Microsoft solution for government contractor ERP, project accounting and financial management.

Transquest Federal’s customers include Department of Defense and Intelligence agencies.  The firm’s areas of expertise include cyber security and recruiting.

Transquest Federal was using QuickBooks prior to moving to Microsoft Dynamics NAV. Company President David Crocker said that Transquest Federal had gone as far as they could with QuickBooks, especially when Defense Contract Audit Agency (DCAA) compliance became a major concern. Transquest Federal had grown its government customer base significantly and needed to ensure that it would have no problem passing the inevitable audits. Transquest Federal evaluated other solutions tailored to government contractors such as Deltek GCS Premier and several others before deeming them unable to meet the firm’s needs.

“We needed a DCAA compliant solution that would support us as we grew, however we were unable to identify any solutions on the market that offered the capabilities we needed,” said Crocker. “In order to take our company to the next level, we decided to procure Microsoft Dynamics NAV from PVBS. We were impressed by the freshness of the technology and the common Microsoft interface.”

Crocker said that the Microsoft Dynamics’ ease of use and vast reporting capabilities were also appealing to him.  Crocker enlisted the support of an outsourced chief financial officer, Richard Marksberry, to help him make the decision which software to choose.  Marksberry was familiar with the options that Transquest Federal was considering and recommended that the company go with Microsoft’s premier solution.

“This is Microsoft’s top financial management solution for government contractors,” said Marksberry. The comprehensive reporting capabilities, user interface, and government contractor functionality helped make it the ideal solution for Transquest Federal.

Bernard Mustafa, CEO and President at PVBS, said, “We are expanding into Southern California to support exciting and growing government contractor customers such as Transquest Federal.  The interest in our solution from companies that provide services and sell products to the government is growing rapidly.”
