Headquartered in Santa Monica, CA and with over 500 employees on four continents around the world, HBA provides interior design, graphic design, and art consultation services to well known luxury hotels and resorts, spas, restaurants, and other hospitality destinations around the world.

“We’re very excited that HBA has chosen Microsoft and to complete this important project”, said Rita Clinton, US Country Manager for “HBA strongly considered industry solutions from Deltek and BST Global, but ultimately chose Microsoft Dynamics based on its ease of use, integration with their existing Microsoft systems, and advantage in multi-company and multi-country project accounting environments.” and HBA will work together to replace HBA’s Deltek Sema4 system with a single global business application.
