Socius Adds Microsoft NAV Experts for Indianapolis and Atlanta Region

DUBLIN, Ohio, Aug. 25, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — Socius, an award-winning business technology and consulting company, announces the addition of Microsoft NAV experts for the company’s presence in Indianapolis and Atlanta. Kerry Pate was brought on as consulting manager at Socius for the greater Atlanta area. A. Jason Nicolaou is now with Socius as Microsoft NAV solutions architect for the greater Indianapolis area. Both Pate and Nicolaou have extensive knowledge of the Microsoft NAV ERP solution.

With more than 20 years of experience in ERP, CRM and Business Intelligence, Pate’s expertise in Microsoft ERP solutions, particularly in supply chain and distribution, will strengthen Socius’ offerings in the Southeast. Pate will help new and existing Socius clients in the Atlanta market with the Microsoft NAV solution, a platform Pate calls a “right out of the box” solution.

“NAV is changing,” Pate added. “Microsoft is investing a lot that isn’t broadcast in user communications; wholesale adaption will occur that will revolutionize the ERP market for small to midmarket businesses. NAV is now more consumable, more successful.”

Pate comes to Socius from his previous role as director of client solutions at OmniVue Business Solutions. He is an Auburn University (BBA, Economics) and Georgia State University (MBA, Finance) alum.

Nicolaou comes to Socius from his previous role as project manager at Estes Design and Manufacturing.

With years of experience working directly with Microsoft NAV as a client, Nicolaou is able to help clients and stakeholders in the greater Indianapolis region look at their business from a high level and determine the points where manufacturing becomes a convoluted process. Nicolaou’s breadth of knowledge is not limited to manufacturing.

“All companies involve the supply chain,” said Nicolaou. “Microsoft NAV can be a resource for any company who wants visibility in their strategic planning, transactions, inventory management and transportation.”

Nicolaou has a Bachelor’s Degree from the Kelley School of Business and an MBA from the University of Indianapolis.
