Unit4, a world leader in enterprise applications for services organisations, was honored at an awards ceremony in London last night for its work with the City of Stockholm. Unit4 was awarded Public Sector Solution of the Year, recognising best practice in customer solutions and service excellence across Europe. This is the 2nd consecutive year Unit4 has been honored in the awards, taking the crown of Enterprise Solution of the Year in 2017.
From more than 500 entries, Unit4 won the award for its work with the City of Stockholm. Unit4 provides the core system for financial and performance management across the departments and companies within the City of Stockholm, supporting the City on its journey to become one of the smartest and most connected cities in the world.
“The judges were pleased to find this entry was based not just on a technical solution, but embraced the whole idea of change management and making systems human-focused in the City of Stockholm,” said John Garratt, Editor of IT Europa, who heads the judges' panel. “When the whole market is talking about digital transformation, it is good to find such a strong example of technology being used in such an all-pervasive and effective manner for a client who clearly understands the transforming role IT can play, and who then works with a partner to implement it on a major scale.”
“We’ve undertaken a long and extensive project involving many employees,” said Andreas Nordström,” Unit Manager at the City of Stockholm. “The cooperation with Unit4 and other parties has worked very well. It’s great to see our work recognised.”
“We are incredibly honoured to receive this award, particularly because it celebrates the success we are delivering to customers like the City of Stockholm,” said Jeremias Jansson, Regional President, Continental Europe, Unit4. “Public sector organisations face constant pressure to better serve citizens.
