Check out important blogs, team additions, upcoming events, and prizes in this months edition of our Newsletter.

As we work with customers we see one common area that gets missed: Training.   Customers come to us to help them with a problem, make a modification or provide a new tool when frequently, with additional training, they could solve the issue internally.   While providing services to our customers is how we stay in business, we also feel it is vitally important that customers become self-sufficient to a certain minimum level.   In this newsletter, I will provide you with some simple tips to build that self-sufficiency.

Make sure you have at least 2 super users.   A super user can provide expert analysis and support to internal staff.   1 super user should have expertise in the accounting, order entry and purchasing modules.   The other super user should have expertise in the manufacturing, inventory and shipping/receiving modules.   We call this 2 sides of the wall.  On one side is the back-office application and on the other side is the operations application.

Build an internal user group.   It doesn’t take much to create an internal user group.  Have them meet for 30 minutes to 1 hour each quarter.  Discuss a topic and focus on solving an issue or showing a new feature.   You can get your Innovia Account Manager involved to help provide support and expertise, many times at no charge to your company.

Finally, be active in NAVUG.  Go to the chapter meetings, work with other users of NAV/BC.  Create posts on the NAVUG website and help to provide answers.   The NAVUG community is a great source for help and new ideas.   Also, make sure at least 1 of your users is going to NAVUG Summit in Orlando.  This is where you can spend a week going to informative sessions on NAV/BC and meet with other users, ISVs and people from Microsoft.   It is the one event each year that is attended by over 5,000 other NAV users and is designed specifically for end users.
