What makes us different...

The secret to our software is the underlying architecture which empowers NGOs and not for profit organizations to independently and quickly respond to evolving requirements and growing scrutiny with minimal cost and disruption (and no reliance on expensive external consultants). The system adapts to changing requirements - increasing its longevity and reducing the cost of ownership.

Put simply, this means that when a change is made in one area, it does not have to be redone and rechecked for accuracy in another.

This post-implementation agility makes Unit4 Business World truly future-proof, with a lower total cost of ownership than many of its rivals. Business World’s long shelf life means you’ll no longer face the pain and heartache of having to re-implement or replace your ERP system every five years. Instead, you’ll gain substantial savings, and an unmatched resilience to change.
