Unit4 wins ‘Enterprise Solution of the Year’ Award for its work with Heifer International
Posted by Emma Keates
Unit4 was honored at an awards reception in London last night as the winner in the Enterprise Solution of the Year category at the European IT and Software Excellence Awards. The awards recognize best practice in customer solutions and service excellence from the vendor and distributor community across Europe.
From more than 500 entries, Unit4 was announced the winner based on its success working with international not-for-profit Heifer International. You can read the full story in the words of Heifer’s VP & Enterprise Accounting Controller, Jesus Pizarro, who attended the awards with Unit4. He says that without Unit4, the organization would not have its current level of global visibility of financial data. The insight Unit4 Business World delivers is invaluable and has helped Heifer reduce costs by more than 27% and increase program impact by 57% since implementation. This is truly game-changing for a non-profit organization with an amazing cause fighting world hunger and poverty with 70 years of history and 900 professionals in 30 countries. Before Unit4, the organization helped 1.9 million people on an annual basis... Today they help over 3 million. That's the impact Unit4 has delivered.
John Garratt, Editor of IT Europa, who led the judging panel said: “The judges found that the project “clearly met the customer’s need” and “the benefits were well demonstrated”. “This was a very competitive category with many entries, but with the judges looking for evidence of returns, Unit4 hit the spot and is a well-deserved winner.”
