Key Capabilities

Unit4 Dream is a fully-featured accounting system that provides a range of benefits, and real answers to issues faced by many organisations as it delivers:

Unified accounting around a single unified ledger – Dream provides the core nominal, purchase, sales and cash ledgers; additional ledgers that may be applicable to your business; administrative purchasing; fixed asset accounting; and reporting. Unlike modular systems, the ledgers in Dream do not exist separately but are held within one combined database.

Best-of-class, flexible, scalable, user defined accounting - Dream is a dedicated financial software solution that integrates easily with your other business systems and covers a broader and deeper range of accounting functions than you would find in the accounts module of most multi-purpose ERP systems. In addition, it provides flexible and scalable, user-defined accounting that not only suits your current requirements but can also react rapidly to match and keep pace with your business as it grows and changes.

User defined input - This popular and unique feature allows you to define and design your own screens to suit your requirements. It ensures rapid familiarity with the system while minimising training needs; making sure your team will feel confident with the system from day one.

Procurement –integrated corporate accounting and purchasing. Dream’s integral order processing functionality offers a seamless approach to accounting and purchasing. This is supported by the latest mobile technologies for document authorisation and integration via web services allowing browser-based procurement tools to streamline, simplify and improve the purchase-to-pay process. This gives fast, controlled access to key procurement functions, helping to keep your administrative costs low and opening up the benefits of controlled, online purchasing from your chosen suppliers.
