The ERP today awards

We’ve just won one of the most prestigious awards in ERP technology

from  September 27, 2021 | 2 min read

Unit4 has been named ERP Vendor of the Year at the 2021 ERP Today Awards! 

This award is presented to the vendor displaying “the greatest commitment to customer success and value, underpinned by a deep responsibility to employees, the environment, and broader society.” 

We feel winning based on these criteria is a great example of our operating principle in action – “Create an extraordinary environment so our people take extraordinary care of our customers.” 

Growing momentum throughout 2020 and 2021 

Despite the pandemic, we’ve seen continued customer and product momentum over the last two years. Combined with our recent successful strategic buyout by TA Associates, and the launch of our industry leading ERPx solution, this momentum has given us the edge we needed to bring home this award. 

Paul Esherwood, ERP Today Editor, also noted “The judges were also impressed with the company’s focus on social responsibility and sustainability in business operations.” 

A win for us, a win for our customers 

And in a further vindication of our approach, we’re delighted to say that our customer, Social Work England, received the Transformation Project of the Year award, in recognition of their implementation of Unit4 ERP working with our Elite partner, Embridge Consulting. This award is for organizations and consultancies that “demonstrate the greatest impact and value from their transformation project.” 

Chris Richards, our Regional President for UKI, said: “We are absolutely delighted to receive this coveted accolade from a shortlist of some of the best in the ERP industry. It’s been a challenging couple of years for many organizations and their employees, but this recognition is testament to Unit4’s leadership, strategy, and culture which has seen it complete a successful growth buyout this year. We’re also thrilled to see Social Work England awarded for the value it is delivering to stakeholders through our technology, working with our elite partner Embridge Consulting. We have built an organization and ecosystem focused on delivering that level of value to all our customers.”
