CIO Bulletin recently posted the Top 10 Best Microsoft Solution Providers of 2018 and coming in at #5 is our very own Navtej Sekhon! The article discusses how he built his company from the ground up to one of the most trailblazing digital transformation and consulting businesses in the industry. With humbling beginnings as a Microsoft reseller of Business Solutions and ERP implementation to Hospital Bed Management System, then OCS and QCS and expanding their scope to a multitude of products and service which are on their way, Navtej and AXSource are here to show the market we are the choice customers want. Here’s an excerpt from the article:
“Our promise to you is our support for your entire IT efforts by providing world class solutions specific to your industry”: AXSource
To stay competitive, businesses must know about the current technologies and implement it in their companies. They must do this with little direct Information Technology (IT) experience. Maintaining a dedicated, full-time IT department, is simply too expensive, time consuming and inefficient.
The answer to this predicament is solved by using a true Professional Technology Services Provider. These providers offer on-demand talent, depth of experience, deep resources and huge economies of scale that allow businesses to receive both peace of mind and affordable professional-class IT service.
As information technology and software business was relatively new and upcoming at the time, Navtej, the founder and CEO of AXSource took advantage of the exciting opportunity to start a new venture. Being well aware of trends within the industry and the new shift that technology would be taking, this was a brave role on his part. Keeping into consideration that technology is always changing, Navtej is well aware to stay ahead of the curve and to lookout for various changes and new trends in technology within AX.
The company’s initial product is HBMS (Hospital Bed Management System). It was originally developed in a hospital in Brantford, Ontario and designed for managing the usage of hospital beds for patients. Being built on existing Microsoft products, this reduces purchasing costs for our clients and is very easy to use and install. Its main purpose of development was to increase visibility in terms of available bed awareness. The HBMS system was also based on Microsoft Sharepoint, which allows businesses to solve all their problems in an efficient and effective manner.
As a System Integrator, AXSource’s first project was implementing Dynamics AX ERP (also known as Axapta) for a food and beverage company in 2004. The team worked on upgrading their ERP after 5 years. The Client was really happy with the implementation and they are at present supported by AXSource team on a weekly basis albeit 14 years of service.
AXSource Infotech was started as a System Integrator and VAR (Value Added Reseller) for Microsoft Business Solution (Dynamics Products). After a few years of implementing Dynamics ERP in various industries, the team felt quite comfortable in taking a challenge to develop their own industry specific vertical solution. They decided to develop an ISV solution for Pharma and Life Sciences. The knowledge, experience and skillset required for this undertaking gave them an edge to be one of the top Microsoft Partners who know Pharma and Life Sciences industry on top of their already rich experience with Dynamics ERP. After finishing that ISV solution for Pharma and Life Sciences, the team has ventured into expanding the same solution for other Quality and Regulatory driven industries such as License Producers (LPs) for Cannabis (Marijuana).
