Avaap will now offer cross-platform technology advisory and management consulting capabilities, positioning the firm to serve a broader market.
The Edison-based company’s expanded offerings, building on its Infor-only consulting services, were announced July 8 with its acquisition of Navigator Management Partners.
Columbus, Ohio-based Navigator specializes in enterprise resource planning systems, business intelligence and change management, according to Avaap. Combined, the entity will serve industries including health care, retail, higher education, nonprofit, government, manufacturing and other commercial sectors.
“The acquisition of Navigator is a landmark step in Avaap’s strategic development,” said Dhiraj Shah, president and chief executive officer of Avaap, in a prepared statement.
“Our focus is to have the leading market share in the industries we serve by providing superior end-to-end capabilities,” he added. “This acquisition, along with the continued support from our capital partner NMS Capital, and the new partnerships we inherit, allow us to support our growth goals and extend that commitment to our largest assets; our customers and employee citizens.”
David Schoettmer, Navigator’s CEO, said the acquisition would provide that company’s customers with access to expertise to address their needs, and provide its employees with expanded growth opportunities at the new company.
Avaap serves more than 200 customers and in 25 countries.d
