How we work with you

Show Hide

We understand the need for early engagement, clear expectation setting and realistic project planning to provide a successful and repeatable model for the FE sector. Unit4 and Highpoint have developed a unique implementation methodology to deliver on these three needs.

Highpoint have designed an FE value accelerator that combines the best of Business World On! functionality with specific FE college requirements. Instead of starting from scratch, we now offer a facilitated build in tandem with your processes.

The implementation methodology is underpinned by continuous knowledge transfer, dynamic documentation and improved customer experience to empower the staff as users of the software, giving you the knowledge and tools to make the most of your solution to future-proof your institution. Unit4 and Highpoint’s FE value accelerator is easy to use, quick to implement, low in cost and high in value.

What our customers say

  • “We are a textbook model for an organisation that lives in constant change, and our software systems did not have the agility to keep up. We wanted the ability to make changes ourselves, quickly, which we can get from the Unit4 solution, but that we didn’t see elsewhere in the market.”
