There are many ways a company can grow: new customers, organic growth, and acquisitions. Innovia has been successful in all three areas this year. At the beginning of September, Innovia was proud to acquire Kanza Business Solutions. Kanza is a NAV reseller based in Overland Park, KS, with over 34 years’ experience. Since the early 2000s, Kanza has focused on the Dynamics NAV space.

Over the last few years, Kanza found it needed to be able to bring more resources to its growing list of customers. Business was growing, but the ability to staff for this demand continued to be challenging. After the Innovia and Kanza teams met in early 2020, we began discussing an acquisition. Innovia had the staff, growing capacity, and experience to help Kanza provide for its customers.

We spent significant time ensuring a good cultural fit. Both companies wanted customers and employees to understand this move as a natural expansion for both companies and not a forced joining of ill-fitting organizations. Our goal was to provide a smooth transition for customers and employees. Today, we see that indeed, these objectives have been met. Both teams worked quickly to transition customers into the Innovia process and make Kanza employees feel as if they had always been here.

We are very excited at what the future holds for the combined companies. We look forward to expanding our work with Kanza customers and helping them grow their operations. 2020 has been an interesting year for all of us, and Innovia feels blessed to be able to continue to grow during this time.
