Datavail acquires Hawthorne backed Navantis

Datavail Corporation, a leading provider of managed services for data integration, management and database administration, has acquired Navantis Inc., a 200-person Microsoft Premier Partner. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Toronto based Navantis was founded by John Kvasnic and Jason Martin in 1998 and financed by Genuity Capital Partners, now Hawthorne Partners.

This acquisition is the second by Datavail in the past year. In July 2016, it acquired Art of BI, an Oracle Business Intelligence (BI) consultancy. Both acquisitions were enabled by Datavail’s US $47 million capital funding round in December 2015.

Founded in 2007, Broomfield, Colorado based Datavail is backed by Catalyst Investors, Tahosa Capital, Lumerity Capital Partners, Boulder Ventures, Meritage Funds and MC Investment Fund.
