Unit4 Business World On!
Explore the latest capabilities for Business World On! users
Legacy ERP systems were built to serve manufacturers and product-based industries. They were not designed to cope with the dynamics and aspirations of service and government organisations, which thrive by empowering their people to drive excellence and innovation.
The ERP needs of people-centric industries are clear – a solution with intuitive user experience and a flexible architecture that moves at the speed you do. Otherwise, innovation is hampered and the costs to adapt explode. Unit4 Business World On! meets and exceeds those needs by offering consumer-grade experience combined with enterprise strength. No longer do your people and business processes have to conform to your software. With Unit4 Business World On! you make the rules and can adapt to new opportunities faster, at a lower cost and without disruption.
Unit4’s “self-driving” ERP applications provide an outstanding user experience.
And when technology drives engagement, business happens.
Unit4 Business World On! empowers everyone in your organisation to make a difference by freeing people from time-consuming manual tasks and allowing them to focus on accomplishing their mission.
The latest innovations in pattern recognition, predictive analytics and sentiment analysis are employed to streamline processes, automate tasks, suggest actions, and provide context-relevant insight.
Examples like prefilled expense reports or approval lists that highlight invoice anomalies, these do more than save time. When so many tasks are executed with minimal or even no user input, your people are free to focus on what they were hired to do: solve problems and achieve goals.
Unit4 Business World On! is a cloud ERP solution that enables service-centric organisations in the public and private sectors to gain a significant advantage over their peers. Its leading-edge architecture facilitates faster innovation at a lower cost and with less disruption. The results include increased opportunities and smarter operations.
Business World On! customers enjoy business flexibility* in addition to lower TCO** because they need a fraction of the usual resources required to operate and evolve the system.

Finance Manager and Project Manager, Trócaire
“We entered a transformation programme with a heavily customised system that would have hampered progress. We are ending it with a fit-for-purpose solution, fit for the sector, that actually supports change. We chose the Unit4 Local Government ERP platform to replace Oracle because it had the best fit for our procurement criteria."
- Transformation Programme Delivery Manager, Coventry Council
“We are a textbook model for an organisation that lives in constant change, and our software systems did not have the agility to keep up. We wanted the ability to make changes ourselves, quickly, which we can get from the Unit4 solution, but that we didn’t see elsewhere in the market.”
- Director of Finance, Cranfield University
Using Unit4 Business World allowed us to meet our goal of applying industry best practice consistently across our entire business whilst at the same time keeping it simple. That’s why we’ve been so successful.
