Geographic expansion includes key executive appointments to accelerate growth and enhance partnerships across key markets
Navint, an advisory and technology firm that helps enterprise organisations drive growth and operational efficiency, announced its expansion into the UK and EMEA. This investment comes in direct response to a surge in customer demand for Lead-to-Revenue (LTR) transformation services, as well as increased interest in Configure, Price, Quote (CPQ) and Billing implementation throughout the region.

“Navint is committed to helping our clients improve the way they go to market and automate their most pressing lead-to-revenue challenges. We’re thrilled to formally launch our EMEA operations and the appointment of several strategic hires to grow our business, support our clients and enhance our partnerships,” said Jim Martindale, CEO, Navint. “The strength of our local team demonstrates our commitment to supporting our international operations while providing our local clients exceptional customer service. They will allow us to deliver high-value advisory services and CPQ and Billing implementation capabilities to our European clients as we continue to grow our global operations.”
The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted how critical it is for businesses to accelerate the path of LTR technology and process automation to ensure greater efficiency, resiliency and improved customer experience. Businesses must be able to quickly drive change and transform front- and back-office systems to manage remote work and rapidly deploy product, pricing and portfolios to monetize demand and meet new customer requirements. This type of transformation is a significant challenge for businesses that were historically built around heavily customized code and extensive manual business processes – as it requires agility and integration in cross-organisation systems and tools, including Contract Lifecycle Management (CLM), CPQ, Billing, and Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) to manage more complex monetization models like recurring revenue, as well as consumption and usage-based models.
