Unit4's solutions for public sector and government organizations combine innovations in technology like cloud, social and mobile capabilities with a deep understanding of the sector challenges. They support financial management, procurement, HR and payroll, project management functions and processes that allow users to be efficient, effective and client focused while complying with regulations.

Today's Public sector organizations face constant pressure to contain costs, eliminate inefficiencies, and improve access to information. With an increasing emphasis on achieving value for money, accountability and ensuring continuous improvement, organizations must also deal with advances in technology, outsourcing and changes in work patterns.

From our experience with thousands of Public sector clients of all sizes we understand how it is more important than ever to:

  • quickly plan and execute the appropriate reactions to unexpected events;
  • maintain proper business visibility and control, to fulfil corporate governance and corporate responsibility obligations;
  • ensure decisions can be based on reliable, complete and current information.

And all this, while remaining focused on running operations as effectively as possible to maximize every opportunity and to deliver results, regardless of the prevailing conditions.

What makes us different...

Organizations can implement Unit4 Business World in stages – as budgets allow, and increase scope later on without disruption. Users can make system changes without reliance on programming or external IT.

In systems from other vendors, changes often require programing or expensive external consultants, leading to more risk of operational disruption and higher costs. Business World’s unique architecture empowers users to make changes to the system, as the occasion demands (and permissions permit). For example:

Department reorganization
Users can make changes to structure, processes, reporting and other organizational requirements as necessary. These changes do not need to be "re-programmed".

Regulatory changes
Trained users can add new parameters to track, alter reporting and make system changes that will allow them to comply with, track and report on regulatory changes.

Population growth
As growth puts strains on current structures and programmes, users can make system changes to efficiently manage changes to organizational structure, processes, reporting etc.

Internal initiatives
A new internal initiative may require new reports - trained users can simply create the new report. Adding data in one place means it is automatically seen across the system.

By empowering users to change their own systems in response to new requirements, the Total Cost of Ownership of the Business World solution is significantly lower than other, more rigid systems.
