Global leaders in financial events invest in Microsoft technology and rapidNAV Finance to increase multi- operational business strategies.
Gulf Financial Conference’s deliver financing and investment events around the world. Topics and content are driven by their audience with research results delivered to a network conference of key financial decision-makers. Launched in 2009 by CEO Alex Johnson, the vision is to create a series of events that provide genuine value to participants, in terms of learning and networking. In just 4 years, the business has expanded from 700 attendees across 3 events in the Gulf region, to 5000 attendees across 13 events in 4 continents, covering Middle East, Africa, Turkey, Russia, Brazil, Mexico and the Andes.
Gulf Financial were limited with the functionality and scalability of their current financial software. Coupled with on premise hosting they recognised that an investment in cloud technology was vital. Due to a rapid increase of multi-lingual events, one of the pre-requisites for a new finance software was the ability to process multi-currency orders across different countries. rapidNAV not only delivered the multi operational elements Gulf Financial needed, but also the integration of the familiar Microsoft Office 365 software. The ability to access financials through mobile technology was a key factor to their decision to invest in a Microsoft business solution which is trusted by over two million users worldwide. “rapidNAV provided a full training course for our users at our offices. Within a matter of days we were up and running without any downtime.” Alex Johnson – Gulf Financial CEO
