Innovia Newsletter, September 2016


Looks like fall is fast approaching!   NAVUG Summit is as well, which is a fantastic event for companies running NAV: networking with other customers, an Expo to have personal interactions with hundreds of companies that can extend your NAV abilities, insight directly from Microsoft on the direction of the NAV product, and a multitude of sessions giving you a chance to learn so much!  We have many staff attending this year, teaching pre-event Academy courses as well as speaking at sessions, and we'll have our booth at the Expo as well.  We are looking forward to seeing many of you there, and strongly encourage everyone to consider attending. It is an event that, once you go, likely you or others from your company will always go.  If you are on the fence, please reach out to me or any of our staff to have a conversation - we want to help you get the most out of your investment!
