Melbourne-based business software specialist EBS (Evolution Business Systems) this month celebrated 15 years in business after completing a record year during 2015-16.

EBS is a Microsoft Gold ERP Partner specialising in Microsoft Dynamics NAV and other Enterprise Resource Planning solutions that can be tailored to the needs of small to medium sized businesses. The privately-owned company has a particular strength in the not-for-profit sector.

EBS founder and managing director Paul Woods said the company’s success was due to its ability to help customers navigate the rapidly evolving technology industry. “It’s been a tumultuous period to run a business,” he said.

“We established EBS immediately after the Year 2000 bust, when many IT companies just struggled to survive, and have grown successfully since then. During that time, we’ve seen the GFC, the emergence of cloud services and plenty of competitors come and go,” he said.

“The many successes we’ve achieved since 2001 are thanks to the support of our customers, our business partners and the amazing EBS team during the past 15 years. We now look forward to the next 15!”
