About Us


Kanza Business Solutions was founded in 1986 by Debbie Shepard and operated under the name Shepard & Associates, Inc. until 2016 when the name was changed to Kanza Business Solutions.  Kanza Business Solutions has been an accounting software provider since 1986 and has provided software, consulting, implementation, support and development services to more than 500 clients throughout the Midwest.  Our goal is to be a business partner with our clients not just a software vendor, and in doing so, create long term and long-lasting relationships with our clients.

Kanza Business Solutions has a seasoned staff of Microsoft Certified Professionals with an average of 15 years of Microsoft Dynamics NAV product experience.

Throughout our 30 years of experience, Kanza Business Solutions has developed a proven methodology for successful software implementations.  We begin with a thorough discovery phase so that we can learn and understand your business processes, your current pain points and your expected future growth.  Our goal is to implement the software to fit your business processes vs. re-engineering your processes to fit the software.  We understand how to manage expectations and how to help manage the fear and disruption that changing software systems can bring.  We truly strive to be your business partner and work closely with your staff before, during and long after the implementation of the software to ensure that our services continue to meet your changing needs.

Since 1983, Microsoft Dynamics NAV has delivered the functionality, performance, stability and ease of use that powers diverse businesses world-wide.  Our client base ranges in size from three users to over one hundred users and transaction volumes that range from a few daily entries to thousands of daily entries.  Dynamics NAV has been installed in over 117,000 companies and has well over 2,000,000 licensed users, making NAV one of the most widely deployed ERP systems in use at small and medium sized businesses.  Comprehensive functionality and ease of use are the hallmarks of Dynamics NAV, so user adaptation is easy and intuitive.  Dynamics NAV also easily integrates with other solutions, applications, and of course other Microsoft products such as Office programs that you are probably already using in your organization.
