New York, January, 29, 2024 -- Unit4, a leader in enterprise cloud applications for people-centric organizations, today announced that START Treatment & Recovery Centers has selected Unit4’s ERPx platform - including Financial Planning and Analysis (FP&A), Source to Contract, and Talent Management - as its new, unified Finance and HR solution. 

START Treatment & Recovery Centers is one of New York’s leading organizations serving New Yorkers grappling with substance use and mental health challenges. As the state’s largest and oldest minority-led drug treatment, non-hospital health, and human services provider, the organization supports vulnerable people through a number of community health centers in the Manhattan and Brooklyn areas. It is also one of the few independently operated providers in its field that conducts leading-edge research into substance use and co-occurring disorders.

With Unit4, START Treatment & Recovery Centers will have access to data on a single platform to enable staff to quickly access operational and strategic reporting. Being a cloud-based solution, colleagues will also be able to retrieve vital decision-making information from anywhere, which will help the organization to drive efficiencies, improve compliance, and empower staff to dedicate more time for mission-critical activities.  Additionally, the organization will realize a head start in ‘time to value’, with less configuration and no customization needed.

Further benefits for START Treatment & Recovery Centers include:

  • A purpose-built nonprofit SaaS ERP platform
  • Real-time access to data, enabling informed decision-making for the investment of both time and funds
  • Time savings and efficiency through automation and employee empowerment
  • Intelligent financial planning, budgeting, and forecasting and the ability to model scenarios
  • Project assurance to identify risks and ensure compliance, while managing change with automated assessments, processes, and alerts.

Unit4’s total solution not only offers us the depth and breadth of functionality we require to help us fulfill our promise to our patients but will deliver vital time and cost savings as well.
