Check out important blogs, team additions, upcoming events, and prizes in this month's edition of the Innovia Newsletter.

Innovia provides many ways for you to learn more about NAV/BC, ISVs, and even our company itself.  On our website, we have blogs, case studies, and webinars (available both live and on-demand). Last year we also started a podcast that is hosted by our own Steve Waltz and Jeff Pergolski that covers a wide range of topics we think you may be interested in. In just the past year, our podcast hosts have interviewed Innovia staff members who perform unique roles, taught listeners valuable NAV/BC tips and tricks, welcomed ISV providers to share their expertise, and so much more! No matter the topic, Steve and Jeff provide comedic banter while staying focused on the subject at hand.

If you have always wondered what some of our staff at Innovia are like, I would recommend you listen to their episodes. You'll get a broad overview of their expertise, background, and career, but each episode remains focused on how they feel working at Innovia and how we best serve our customers. Donavan Lane, our founder, recently sat down for a podcast to talk about the history of Innovia. It is an interesting trip down memory lane that is well worth a listen (or a watch, we recorded a video version of that podcast that you can find here).

Other podcast episodes focus on add-on products with special guests from outside the company. We have even had conversations with customers who share their experiences working with NAV/BC and with Innovia specifically. The central goal of these podcasts is to inform the listener, but that doesn't mean it can't be entertaining along the way!

You can find every episode of the podcast on our website, or you can subscribe to our feed on your favorite streaming service to be notified when a new episode is available. Just search "The Innovia Conversation." Take a moment to listen. I’m sure you will enjoy it and learn something new!
