Columbus was founded in 1989. The company started out by offering shared computing services to local companies. The main focus was accounting software and the company advanced from there, by developing their own software to meet companies specific needs.
In 1996 we took on Navision (now known as Dynamics NAV, or D365 Business Central), a Windows-based accounting solution, which we still sell, implement and support today. We continue to deliver standard software and modified solutions to meet customers needs.
In 2005 we took on Microsoft CRM and started to implement and support Microsoft CRM solutions. We continue to deliver these solutions, now known as D365 Customer Engagement and D365 Sales and Marketing.
2016 marked the year of integration and becoming stronger together. Cambridge Online was acquired by Columbus Global, which enabled true global presence and access to more Dynamics resources worldwide. We still maintain our local presence through offices in Cambridge, Nottingham and Warrington, with a focus on solutions for mid-sized businesses.
Columbus expands its SME offerings with new investment in Microsoft Dynamics Customer Engagement and supporting solutions including Connective Field Service and Hololens Remote Assistance. Columbus was also one of the first partners to be Microsoft Business Central co-sell ready, demonstrating investment in helping SMEs make the shift to a unified cloud-based business solution.
