Macaw Selects Unit4 ERP to Support International Growth

London, UK

September 23, 2020

Unit4, a cloud leader in enterprise software for people-centred organizations, today announced that Macaw has selected Unit4 Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) as the company moves from a local customized solution, to modern, Cloud-based, integrated suite aligned with its strategic growth plans.

Macaw is a full-service digital agency with offices in The Netherlands, Germany and Lithuania, who combine business insight and leading-edge technology to make their customers successful. Customers value their unique company culture and continuous thirst for innovation and optimization, leading to long term customer relations.

Cloud solution
Looking to migrate from on premise to a cloud-based platform, Macaw was searching for a solution, tailored specifically for Professional Services Organizations, to deliver regular functionality updates, simple maintenance and the ability to make changes quickly. The solution would also have to align Finance, Projects, Operations, HR and reporting functions.

By implementing Unit4 ERP for Professional Services Organizations, Macaw will be creating 'a better way to work' for its people, and will benefit from:

  • An enhanced user-experience designed to automate low-value tasks
  • Optimized resource management and planning across teams and geographies
  • The ability to drive project profitability by increasing margins
  • A company-wide fixed set of key performance indicator reports based on live data

With Unit4 we have found a partner that has shown a real commitment to and knowledge of our industry, and their solution consultants have a deep understanding of our business challenges.
