Unit4, a world leader in software for public services, announces today the City of Port Moody, located in the Metro Vancouver area, has extended its Unit4 IT backbone with Unit4 prevero for financial performance reporting.

Port Moody is located at the head of Burrard Inlet and at the foot of Eagle Mountain. A vibrant city of 34,000, Port Moody is located an easy 40 minute drive from both downtown Vancouver and the US border, and just steps from seaside parks, mountain trails and lakes. With the completion of two new rapid transit stations in 2016, Port Moody is expected to undergo substantial population growth over the next 20 years, prompting the community to explore various redevelopment and community planning projects.

Unit4 has worked with Port Moody since 2005, helping to streamline and automate processes that boost people productivity and support them to focus on more valuable work. To support an ever-growing service portfolio, Port Moody is investing further to transform IT into a platform for growth and citizen service.
