Press Release: House of Forgings Selects Navigator Business Solutions to Implement SAP ByDesign

HOF logo(Salt Lake City, UT) — Navigator Business Solutions has announced that House of Forgings, a diversified ornamental iron and wood stair parts distributor, has selected  Navigator Business Solutions to shift its company procedures and operations onto a single streamlined software platform; SAP ByDesign.

House of Forgings was formed in 2001, and has grown steadily throughout its tenure.  New ownership assumed control of the company in 2010, and since that time House of Forgings has distinguished itself as a progressive company with a drive for innovation, technology, and overall forward thinking within the metal and wood stair space.  House of Forgings operates three corporate locations within the state of Texas (Grand Prairie, Austin, and Houston) and has a staff totaling 85 employees.

Due to its continued growth and success, House of Forgings chose SAP ByDesign, a unified enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution, to automate their operational processes, streamline workflow, and manage inventory across the entire organization. This process involved identifying and picking the proper platform (several solutions 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 found Navigator’s presentation and informative sales process to answer all of our questions clearly, and in depth” said Jeremy Hair, CFO at House of Forgings.  “The improved efficiency, which will now allow House of Forgings to operate a singular management solution, was a major element in helping us make our decision to employ SAP ByDesign.”   Hair continued “For all intents and purposes, SAP seemed to be a great fit, and we are excited to prove its celebrated capability.”

It is anticipated that once installation is complete, House of Forgings will significantly streamline operational efficiencies which will allow them to spend greater time and focus within digital marketing efforts, a main component of their business plan.

“We are thrilled to provide House of Forgings with a total software solution that will meet their needs universally” remarked Geoff Ashley, Navigator Business Solutions Senior Vice President of Sales & Marketing.  “We also look forward to referencing House of Forgings as yet another Navigator success story as they are now better equipped to capture their true potential moving ahead.”
