Solving homelessness with Microsoft.
REV formed a strategic “365” relationship with Microsoft at the time of our founding in 2011. In 2018, REV partnered with Microsoft to create the first-of-its-kind Homelessness Encampment Workflow Automation Application to assist the City of Seattle with the management and reporting of over 10,000 chronically unsheltered people. REV and Microsoft coined the application, powered by the Microsoft Power Platform, the “Navigation App”, also known as “NAVApp”.
Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella noted that the company saw “two years’ worth of digital transformation in two months”.
For this work, REV has been featured in Microsoft’s Voices for Innovation for “meeting pandemic challenges with digital transformation” . REV was recently nominated for Microsoft’s prestigious “Build for 2030” Small Business of the Year award.
The “NAVApp” is still in production today and continues to be a best-in-class solution for state and local governments working to address homelessness and its myriad challenges. REV is both a strategic channel partner and certified Microsoft Diverse Supplier across all Microsoft product stacks.
