UNIT4 Business Software | Supporting a wide range of dynamic industry and market sectors

Understanding your business

As a long-established global business solutions provider, we support customers all around the world, in a wide range of dynamic industry and market sectors.  Some of the main markets and associated business needs that we focus on are:

  • Local Government

    Today, more than ever, local governments need smarter systems to meet the increasingly demanding requirements of their stakeholders, respond successfully to regulatory and organizational changes and cope with perpetual pressure to contain costs, eliminate inefficiencies, and improve access to information.

  • Education and Research

    Education institutions and Research organizations need more flexible, agile systems that they can grow in manageable phases to suit their needs and budget, whilst gaining improved accuracy, greater efficiencies and a faster return on IT investment. These should also provide a platform from which to seize new opportunities, such as shared services operations and collaborative ventures with other institutions.  Find out more about our experience in Education and Research. 
  • Financial Services

    The Financial Services sector is extremely diverse – both in terms of the organizations it includes and the many types of products and services delivered to clients. Add to this a recent history of rapid and challenging regulatory change, combined with one of the toughest trading environments in living memory, and it is clear that business solutions for this market need to cope with complex day-to-day operational support, demanding reporting requirements and the need for rapid and comprehensive responses to business changes.
  • Professional Services

    In addition to effective support for all their standard business/operating functions, service-based organizations need outstanding people-focused solutions to ensure the optimum utilization and deployment of their teams and to deliver the clear, easily accessed visibility of the business that enables better-informed management and decision-making.

  • Not for Profit

    "Third Sector" and Not-for-Profit organizations face constant scrutiny and need to be agile, transparent and accountable. But this is difficult to achieve when data is held in various separate or poorly integrated inflexible systems. From our experience with hundreds of Non-Profits and NGOs we know the challenges posed by ever-shifting requirements and have developed a suite of solutions to meet these challenges.
  • Retail

    Whether you need to cope with difficult trading conditions or ensure that you can seize and capitalize on new opportunities, it is vital to have the right financial management and other business support systems in place. Real-time information, extremely flexible and detailed analysis capabilities and the inbuilt agility to rapidly reflect business and organizational changes are all key requirements for maintaining a healthy bottom-line.
  • Transport and Logistics

    Organizations in this sector are often large and complex operations across multiple countries. Integrated business systems are essential, to ensure that accessible up-to-date information is available to managers and decision makers and to deliver effective tracking and meet demanding international and multi-currency reporting requirements. Rapid change is another key factor, with profitability depending on the flexibility to quickly add, change or withdraw routes and services according to their potential or performance.

  • Wholesale and Distribution

    Success in this sector depends on maintaining tight financial control and effective management over large volume/low margin operations. It is essential to identify and focus on the most profitable business and to optimize cashflow and debt. With clients utilizing more channels to market and demanding even greater flexibility on stock handling and added value services, wholesalers need the systems in place to deliver accurate real-time information and adjust easily and swiftly to changing requirements and new service models.  Find out about our dedicated ERP solution for the wholesale sector.
