Utrecht, Netherlands, 1st March, 2017 – Unit4, a fast growing leader in enterprise applications for service organisations, today announced that it has been named a Finalist for Enterprise Solution of the Year and Connected/Mobility Solution of the Year at the 2017 European IT and Software Excellence Awards.
IT Europa’s European IT and Software Excellence Awards recognises best practices in customer solutions and service excellence from the vendor and distributor community across Europe.
From more than 500 entries, Unit4 was named Finalist in the two categories based on its success working with customers Heifer International and Bouvet, a Norwegian consulting firm. Commenting on the impact Unit4’s Business World enterprise software has had on the global NGO, Jesus Pizarro, Vice President and Enterprise Accounting and Controller at Heifer International says: “"Achieving our current level of global visibility of financial data helped to reduce costs by more than 27% and increase program impact by 57%. To put that another way, when we started our journey in 2011 we helped 1.9 million people on an annual basis... Today we help over 3 million. That's impact."
“The judges found that the projects “clearly met the customers’ needs” and “the benefits were well demonstrated”, said John Garrett, Editor of IT Europa, who heads the judges' panel. “These were very competitive categories with many entries, but with the judges looking for evidence of returns, Unit4 hit the spot and is a well-deserved finalist.”
All winners will be honored at an awards dinner at the Royal Garden Hotel, London on 30th March 2017.
