Navantis Joins Forces with Azurati to Elevate BYOD Offerings for SharePoint

Azurati announces a strategic partnership with Navantis Inc., a Canadian IT leader and 2012 Microsoft Global Partner of the Year (Canada).  Navantis will be offering Azurati’s SharePoint2Go® and enterprise mobile application platform to customers in Canada and North America.  The partnership will focus on offering customers SharePoint2Go®, a cloud-based service that represents a breakthrough in making Microsoft SharePoint simple, secure and accessible on any smartphone or tablet, while helping  businesses address the exponential growth of bring-your-own-device (BYOD).

Gartner has predicted that by 2014 “90% of organizations will support corporate applications on personal devices”.  Earlier this year, the Navantis Expert Series provided thought leadership around this trend when it hosted a series of BYOD events across Canada. The theme of the series was to educate IT and business professionals on the challenges raised by BYOD and to provide real solutions that are working today.  One of those solutions now includes SharePoint2Go®.

Built on the Microsoft Azure cloud platform, SharePoint2Go® is designed to specifically address the concerns that organizations operating Microsoft SharePoint will face with respect to BYOD. Mobile security features are the heart of the SharePoint2Go® solution, making it one of the most secure mobile SharePoint solutions on the market today, providing a range of features unmatched by its rivals. Designed from the ground-up to offer a secure mobile deployment, SharePoint2Go combines ease-of-use, simple user interface and single sign-on, coupled with strong security features.

“As the top Microsoft Partner in Canada, we pride ourselves on delivering solutions for clients that solve business problems,” said Randy Lenaghan, CEO Navantis. “Part of our strategy is to select quality partners in the Microsoft ecosystem to jointly deliver unique value driving global competitiveness for our customers.  Azurati was chosen by our team after a rigorous and thorough validation process. We are excited to be working with them on several initiatives.”

The Navantis strategy of selecting best-of-breed technology partners to deliver outstanding results to their client community has resulted in significant industry recognition in the past twelve months.  This included being named as a winner or finalist for technology collaboration with best-of-breed partners at both the CDN Elite Awards as well as the Microsoft Canada IMPACT Awards for work at Direct Energy, Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation and PHO.

“We are delighted to be working with Navantis, one of the world’s leading Microsoft partners,” said Ronan Lavelle, CEO, Azurati. “Organizations are focusing more on their enterprise mobility strategies and we believe that it is vital that the mobile experience is feature and function-rich, rather than being a compromise compared to desktop applications. Navantis has the experience and vision enabling our technology to deliver value to the enterprise.”

Providing education, roadmaps and proven solutions for corporate IT enabling any computing device, smartphone or tablet access to the business without the worries of IT setup, support and security is a priority for both Navantis and Azurati.

This partnership combines Navantis’ experience and successful track-record with Azurati’s innovative SharePoint2Go® offering. Developing today’s most advanced IT solutions takes great partnerships with thought-leaders who share the same vision of empowering clients to exceed their goals.
