"UNIT4 has been on our radar for some time now for stirring a revolution in education technology and we are happy to showcase them this year due to their continuing excellence in delivering top-notch technology-driven-solutions," said Harvi Sachar, Publisher & Founder, CIOReview. “UNIT4 solutions continued to break new ground within the past year benefiting its customers around the globe and we’re excited to have them featured in our top companies list.”

CIO Review’s annual list of companies is selected by a panel of experts and members of CIO Review’s editorial board to recognize and promote technology entrepreneurship in education.

“Working closely with institutions around the world, UNIT4 makes a difference to each faculty, to researchers and to students alike,” said Ivo Totev, UNIT4 CMO. “We’ve honed our education offering over years working in partnership with our customers and solution partners to deliver real value to a sector that has to keep up with the new technology demands of students. The social, mobile and ‘cloud-your-way’ capabilities built into our offering create value in a fast-changing campus community and our customers can attest to that. It’s great to be recognized by CIO Review specifically for our work in this sector.”

What our customers say

“Roles, reporting, everything will change again, and our UNIT4 cloud solution allows us to do this easily, without organizational disruption.” – Anna Sande, IT Systems Administrator, Södertörns University.

“We are a textbook model for an organization 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.” – Ian Sibbald, Director of Finance, Cranfield University.

“The University of Bristol is a significant and complex organisation and so requires the best administrative systems to support its strategic goals. Given the financial challenges faced by the higher education sector, the efficiency and effectiveness of key processes is increasingly important.” - Andrew Nield, Finance Director, University of Bristol.

“UNIT4’s research management solution promises the control universities like Monash require to be world leading.” – Dr. Ian Tebbett, CIO, Monash University.
