Utrecht, Netherlands, 15th May, 2018 – Unit4, a world leader in enterprise systems for services organisations, announces the availability of its Unit4 prevero corporate performance management solution on the Microsoft Azure Cloud, with new performance management solutions for strategic industries including Higher Education, Public Services, Not-for-Profit and Professional Services.

Unit4 has combined best practice models, KPIs, and industry benchmarks from experience working with thousands of customers in its strategic industries, with Unit4 prevero in the Azure cloud. The industry solutions are optimised to accelerate and enable active planning and reporting for these organisations off the shelf. They will speed implementation time and support customers to manage business-critical metrics, driving performance, ensuring compliance and giving insight.

·        Performance Management for Higher Education - provides institutions with a complete, institution-wide view of performance including metrics for Academics, Admissions and Student Life to support Student Success initiatives, the key focus for Higher Education institutions today. A role-based dashboard provides real time metrics and data drill down that supports informed decision making and gives the ability to analyse underlying trends, patterns and insights.

·        Performance Management for Professional Services – supports project lifecycle management with dashboard overviews, collaborative technologies and advanced analytics to align strategy, business and budgets.

·        Performance Management for Not-for-Profits - supports understanding of how to best use donations and funding with transparent grant analysis and reporting. Provides better insight for keeping donors informed about the help they are providing, trace funds and benchmark results, while ensuring resources are focused on the core mission.

·        Performance Management for Public Services – organisations can accurately assess their financial and human resources at any time, from anywhere, to identify opportunities to reduce spending. Advanced visual analysis of data sets provides stakeholders with predictive insights based on transparent and credible data, for more informed decision-making.

Unit4 acquired prevero in July 2016 and is delivering deep integration with Unit4’s Business World ERP suite and Unit4 Financials. Unit4 prevero won the Office of Finance award in 2017 in the Ventana Research Digital Innovation Awards which recognise technology that contributes significantly to improved efficiency, productivity, and the performance of an organisation.

In a recent review of prevero, Senior VP of Research at Ventana Research, Robert Kugel, writes: “It is designed to be consistent with Unit4’s design philosophy of “self-driving” software; as a result, Unit4 prevero is much easier to master than the most popular business intelligence tools...”

“We are offering one of the most comprehensive, but easy to use cloud performance management solutions on the market,” said Matthias Thurner, Unit4 prevero CTO. “Combined with Unit4’s service industry expertise, we are delivering simple to use turnkey solutions for these organisations supporting their people to make smart decisions in every part of their business quickly, aligning strategy, finance and operations like never before. Many of these industries are going through a period of rapid change as they introduce new customer and student services to meet new XaaS economy demands. More than ever, organisations are looking for solutions like ours that support strategic and predictive planning required in such a competitive environment.”
