“Unit4’s success in the public sector has been recognized globally, with customers that include the City of Medicine Hat, the Resort Municipality of Whistler, the City of Stockholm, the British House of Commons and many others,” says Scott Kamieneski, SVP and Managing Director of Unit4 in North America.
