Cloud Sherpas Predicts Massive Growth for ServiceNow Business Unit
Its Integration of Navigis, Acquired in December, Now Complete, Cloud
Sherpas Says Sales in Its ServiceNow Division Will Increase 150% in
2013 and Headcount Will Double
ATLANTA, GA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/15/13 -- Cloud Sherpas, one of
the world's largest independent cloud service brokers, recently
became the first company to earn Preferred Partner status with
ServiceNow (NYSE: NOW) and now boasts over 300 ServiceNow customers,
setting up a huge business opportunity for the firm in 2013. The
multi-faceted company, whose ServiceNow business unit includes brand
name clients Juniper Networks, Equinix, REI, Synaptics, Sephora and
Gymboree, is projecting eight-figure sales and 150% revenue growth
this year, which would cement Cloud Sherpas' position as the most
accomplished ServiceNow partner in the world.
Cloud Sherpas launched its ServiceNow division in December 2012
following the acquisition of Colorado-based Navigis, Inc., a
ServiceNow partner since 2006. Five months after the purchase, Cloud
Sherpas has successfully completed the integration of Navigis' people
and programs. The unit, led by former Navigis CEO Philip Sidebottom,
is focused on helping SMBs to Global 2000 companies across industries
adopt, manage and enhance ServiceNow. The ServiceNow business unit
offers a range of services, including implementation, integration,
training, application development, staff augmentation and license
management, and is highly regarded by clients worldwide for its
experience, scope of services and expertise.
The acquisition of Navigis provided Cloud Sherpas a strong foothold
in the rapidly growing IT service management market, while also
complementing the firm's longstanding, multi-national, highly
successful Google and Salesforce.com business units. In February 2013
Cloud Sherpas was named Global Partner of the Year 2012: Apps
Implementation for the second year in a row by Google, and the
company is a Salesforce.com Platinum partner on three continents.
Across business units, Cloud Sherpas has migrated over 5,000
organizations to the cloud since 2007. In December the firm announced
that worldwide revenue for 2013 would exceed $100 million.
Cloud Sherpas has charted an ambitious growth path for i
business unit in 2013. Recent accolades, milestones and upcoming
plans for the division include:
Industry Recognition - Cloud Sherpas is the first organization to
earn Preferred Partner status with ServiceNow. The achievement, based
on factors including annual revenue, staff certifications and
long-term customer satisfaction, demonstrates Cloud Sherpas'
leadership selling, implementing and supporting ServiceNow.
Customer Success - Cloud Sherpas has helped 300-plus organizations in
the Americas, Europe, Asia and the Middle East deploy ServiceNow
software. Other key accounts include Juniper Networks, Equinix, REI,
Synaptics, Sephora, Gymboree and UCLA.
International Expansion - Cloud Sherpas has strategized and planned
significant growth of the ServiceNow Business Unit in the overseas
market in 2013. By leveraging the existing operations in Dubai,
Phillippines and Singapore the company will provide services, support
and resale of the ServiceNow solution in these markets. This will
position Cloud Sherpas as one of the only partners that can truly
boast global coverage and support.
"ServiceNow is one of the most successful cloud software companies in
the world and we are very excited to be their top partner," said
Sidebottom. "In a very short time we have built a strong business
around ServiceNow that we fully expect will grow to become a
significant portion of Cloud Sherpas' revenue as more companies move
to cloud IT management software from legacy solutions. Cloud Sherpas
is all about helping companies make these transitions and maximize
their return on investment. Our close ties to ServiceNow is a key
part of the process."
