Unit4, a fast growing leader in enterprise applications for service organisations, has been named by TechMarketView as “one to watch” in the UK software and IT service analyst’s UK Public Sector SITS Supplier Landscape: 2015-16 report.
TechMarketView LLP provides authoritative research and analysis on the UK technology sector. The report highlights Unit4’s success in public sector and its commitment to Higher Education; in particular it draws attention to Unit4’s digital strategy “Unit4’s public sector strategy is bold and ’cloud-led’ - its global strategy is well aligned to the public sector’s direction of travel. For example, its people-centric approach, offering additions to the core product based on relevance to the particular subsector, fits well with the Cabinet Office’s user-centric strategy. In addition, Unit4 is looking at taking its self-drive ERP into the sector, offering greater savings to UK public sector organisations at a time of austerity.”
Unit4 is already the leading provider of back-office systems to local government and post-16 education in the UK, with clients that include the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge, the Department for International Development, Bristol City Council and 90 per cent of local authorities in the Republic of Ireland.
“Unit4 has been gathering real momentum,” said Mark Wilson, Interim Managing Director for Unit4 in the UK and Ireland. “Government organisations need to be more effective and efficient; as a result they are looking for alternatives to traditional ‘Big ERP’. It makes much more sense for them to consider vendors that offer digital technology that can rapidly deliver RoI by diverting costs from the back office, to frontline services.”
