INDIANAPOLIS—NaviGate Prepared, a division of Lauren Innovations, has become a sponsor of the Association for Rubber Products Manufacturers.
NaviGate Prepared, based in New Philadelphia, Ohio, focuses on safety and provides software as a service to help businesses and institutions effectively manage safety documentation, meet compliance requirements, and empower staff and first responders with real-time safety information.
Lauren International, NaviGate Prepared's parent company, is a member of the ARPM. The company said in a statement that it felt a NaviGate Prepared sponsorship with ARPM is a way to network and help build the division's brand.
“We do hope to increase awareness in this market,” said Shannon Zaher, marketing director with NaviGate Prepared. “We have growing market share in the K-12 school market, but very little is known about our product in the manufacturing sector.”
NaviGate Prepared officials hope to make ARPM members and the rubber industry more aware of their solutions.
“Safety is a critical component in manufacturing,” Zaher said. “The management of safety compliance requirements and safety documentation as well as scheduling, logging drills, and keeping everyone informed and equipped with the latest safety information is a significant undertaking. Staff are often inundated with paperwork, file updates, memos, reminders, spreadsheets, etc. Our tool can help eliminate the busy work while putting critical safety procedures in the hands of personnel and first responders.”
