For the last newsletter of the year, I would like to reflect back on how we progressed as a company over this past year. Obviously, 2020 was a year unlike any other in recent memory. The pandemic forced all of us to change the way we work and live. Work from home (WFH) became the norm, as did changes in how we interact with others.

In 2020, Innovia moved its customer conference to a virtual format. While certainly not the same as being in person, we received high praise on our conference. Many of our customers noted that it was the best conference they attended virtually in 2020. Our team worked hard to make this event happen within just 5 short weeks. We were pleased that the results were so positive!

Innovia is a Premier Sponsor for Dynamic Communities Summit, and this year we became a Platinum Sponsor of the DynamicsCon virtual conference in its first year. We feel that our support of these conferences and organizations was critical to carrying them through the difficulties of 2020. Innovia has always said that user groups are the backbone of the NAV/BC community, and we back up those statements with financial support.

Our Innovia Training Workshops launched in the 2nd half of the year.  In the first series of courses, we offered a wide range of topics, including BC/NAV setup, finance, operations, and programming. Attendance at these sessions has been superb. We will continue to offer sessions in 2021 and are excited to roll out new topics throughout the year. These courses are by far the best value for the money in our industry for comprehensive training.

Innovia grew this year with the acquisition of Kanza Business Solutions.  The joining of the two companies brought Innovia a large number of customers, as well as some excellent staff members. Kanza customers gained access to Innovia’s depth of resources and support. Looking back, this acquisition has been a clear win for all involved!

No matter what twists and turns the year brought, we continued to grow throughout 2020. We have had opportunities to help customers transition to remote working by implementing Microsoft Teams and setting up NAV/BC  for remote operations. Many of our customers had a challenging but good year overall. For other customers experiencing difficulties, we helped them make it through 2020.

As I said in the beginning, it has been a year unlike any I’ve experienced in over 30 years of business. However, I’m confident that business will persevere and things will get better in 2021.


Best Regards,

Alan Wyne, CEO
