During the concluding Saturday session of All Hands, Mr. Fraser stressed the importance of constantly improving as an entire organization.  He noted that “Navigator is a good company and does a lot of things well, but over the next five years the challenge is to evolve from good to great”.  In accordance with his challenge, he presented guiding principles which will allow the company to reach the goals that have been set.

Press Release: Nutritional Medicinals, LLC, makers of Functional Formularies, Selects Navigator to Implement SAP Business One

FF logo(Salt Lake City, UT) — Navigator Business Solutions has announced that Nutritional Medicinals, LLC and its brand Functional Formularies, a producer of whole foods and feeding tube formulas, selected Navigator Business Solutions to implement its company procedures and operations onto a single streamlined software platform: SAP Business One. Functional Formularies was formed in 2012, and has grown rapidly since inception. With the world’s first and only whole-food, organic feeding tube formulas and meal replacements, Functional Formularies’ competitive advantage is unique.  After her father nearly lost his life after slipping on black ice, company founder and CEO Robin Gentry McGee created an organic food alternative to help support her father’s recovery.  This experience began her immersion into the food-as-medicine model, and Functional Formularies was born. The company operates in its Centerville, Ohio office with a staff of 12 full-time employees and several contracted service providers. Due to continued growth and success, Functional Formularies chose SAP Business One, a unified enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution, to automate their operational processes, streamline workflow, and manage inventory across the organization. This process involved identifying the proper platform (others were considered) through an experienced partner specialist.  This partner would also need to properly implement the software to the unique standards and needs of the company. “We needed something to manage the quickly growing sales” said Jarett Roush, Director of Finance & Operations.  “After managing the business functions with multiple spreadsheets, we needed the ability to better and more easily manage customer relationships, accept and transfer orders, enhance accounting and manage inventory, among other things.”  Brian McGee, co-founder and COO, added, “To us, SAP represented the best in the business.  The way Navigator presented the product and took time to explain the full benefits of the system was very helpful.” It is anticipated that once installation is complete, Functional Formularies will enjoy a measure of organization and overall control like never before.  In addition to the benefits of the software, Functional Formularies also looks forward to a continued positive relationship with the Navigator Services Team.  “Service after the sale is very important to us” added Roush. “Adding Functional Formularies to our growing list of customers is a tremendous win for Navigator” stated Eric Dahl, Navigator’s Vice President of Marketing.   “This is a special company that offers a truly beneficial product to the marketplace.   It’s an honor to be partnered with them.” About Navigator Business Solutions Navigator Business Solutions is the premier Cloud value added reseller and SAP Cloud Partner of the Year for SAP Business One and ByDesign software platforms, services and proprietary add-on software.

The company was founded by Robin Gentry McGee, who over the past several decades has developed a vast knowledge of the food-as-medicine model. It was only natural for Robin to use her experience and knowledge to help her father and herself when faced with life threatening health issues. After experiencing positive results, she is more determined then ever to make it easier for others by taking the guesswork out of choosing healthy alternatives.  www.functionalformularies.com.

On Monday, May 16th, Navigator co-sponsored SAP's Business ByDesign annual conference held at the Loews Royal Pacific resort, also in Orlando.  At the event, Grant Fraser, Navigator's CEO, spoke at a partner round table with leaders from other high profile partners of SAP.  Later Navigator's VP of Value Engineering, Richard Haugen, lectured on Building an ERP Foundation within a Digital Economy.  Within the presentation Mr. Haugen focused on how technology is changing within this connected world, but how the ByDesign platform is geared to benefit enterprises in nearly every capacity both currently and beyond.  In addition to the involvement listed above, Navigator also hosted a booth at the conference.

Following the successful ByDesign conference, Navigator leadership team shifted gears to attend SAP's renown SAPPHIRE NOW conference held May 17-19th at the Orange County Convention Center.  SAPPHIRE NOW, which is billed as the largest technology event, attracts tens of thousands professionals each year from around the world.  In addition to listening to the keynote address by SAP CEO Bill McDermott, taking in the sites, and networking with other industry experts, Navigator again made an influence by presenting at the event.  This time Navigator's Senior Vice President of Sales & Marketing, Geoff Ashley, addressed the crowd on Expanding Capabilities by Extending Solutions into Microverticals.
