At Unit4, our focus is on delivering the unrivaled software products and expert services that will support our customers' people and enable their success – no matter how much or how often their business needs change. We believe that the best measure of our success is our customers' satisfaction with us and our ability to meet their current and future needs.
Having said that, we naturally value the recognition we have received from fellow professionals, analysts, commentators and the media. These range from annual industry awards for quality, through to the latest accreditations for our software products against new standards and platforms.
TickITPlus™ and ISO9001 certification
Unit4 R&D in Harrogate, UK, is the Center of Excellence for the development and support of the Unit4 Financials and Unit4 Dream software packages. Our development processes are critical to the achievement of good quality software, and we have for many years sought to demonstrate this through appropriate certifications that align best to what we do.
TickITplus™, which replaced ISO9001 with the TickIT scheme, is a software quality certification scheme designed to encourage strong software development, auditing and certification practices. Its adoption as our certification standard was a great opportunity to rationalize and improve our quality system processes and to implement some process improvements. Unit4 R&D in Harrogate became one of the first few companies to certify to the Foundation Level back in November 2012, but we didn’t stop there! As the scheme has evolved to introduce the ability to assess an organization’s process maturity, we have become the first organization to achieve a TickITplus™ Capability Level of Bronze. We achieved this milestone certification in May 2016. In March 2018, we maintained our TickITplus™ Capability Level of Bronze and also achieved transition from ISO9001:2008 to ISO9001:2015.
We are extremely proud of this, as this demonstrates that all our staff are committed to working to efficient and effective processes, as well as providing assurance that we can deliver the quality software that our customers deserve, at a time when they want it.
Our Management System scope relates to the “Design, Development, Test, Delivery & support” of the Unit4 Financials and Unit4 Dream products.
The certification has been carried out by Lloyd's Register Quality Assurance (LRQA), a leading global provider of independent assessment services.
