Innovia Newsletter, October 2015

Welcome to Innovia Consulting!  For those wondering, we have the same dedicated team focused on taking care of others, we simply knew our previous name served its purpose and it was time for a change.  It was great timing as we have been evolving our messaging and this gave us a great way to deliver it.  We are laser-focused on NAV, we've embraced the cloud with O365 and Azure (if you don't know what these are, let us know and we'll help you), we have assembled a good sized team with deep expertise in both business and applications, and we are constantly striving to improve the customer experience.  I can tell you, what I just described is not easy, and we're always critiquing ourselves, but the satisfaction of achieving this is so rewarding!  Please share with me or anyone on our team if there are ways we can improve - after all, it is our customers' success that will ultimately determine our success!  I hope you enjoy our newsletter!
