NaviSite (NASDAQ: NAVI), a leading provider of application management and managed hosting solutions, today announced that National Consumer Cooperative Bank (NCB), a financial services company, has chosen NaviSite to provide Application Management services to support NCB's finance, accounting, time and expense, and business intelligence applications.
NCB selected NaviSite, following the acquisition of netASPx, to upgrade the Bank to Lawson Software applications version 9.0 and Lawson System Foundation 9.0 through the Lawson center of excellence. In addition to upgrading all of NCB's Lawson Software applications, NaviSite migrated NCB to a fully-managed application services solution including best-in-class technology, high touch functional and operational support, and continuous applications lifecycle management.
"The management of our Lawson Software solutions is of prime importance to NCB's growth and strategic management," said Richard L. Reed, Chief Financial Officer at NCB. "netASPx, and now NaviSite, have added NCB to their proven track record of successful Lawson version 9.0 upgrades. We were impressed with their commitment to migrate our applications quickly and flexibly, in a way that best suited our needs. They delivered completely on every commitment made during the selection process."
Now that the upgrade and migration to the NaviSite platform is complete, NCB will evaluate additional deployments of Lawson Software solutions into the NaviSite application management environment. "NaviSite is excited to further demonstrate our own customer service and Lawson System Foundation expertise through our engagement with NCB," said Nasir Cochinwala, Senior Vice President of Professional Services at NaviSite. "We are delighted to welcome the Bank to our growing family of NaviSite customers."
