Unit4 customer, WSP, a leader in professional services, was named a finalist in the ninth annual SuperNova Awards presented by Constellation Research. As digital transformation becomes critical to the future of every business, this prestigious award program recognizes organizations that have successfully deployed disruptive technologies and have been leaders in the race to innovate.
WSP provides impactful engineering and design services with a network of more than 500 offices around the world. Based on WSP’s current success utilizing Unit4 solutions in other regions, the company looked to Unit4 when its Australian division needed to improve local operations and efficiency for its consulting services. Hampered by a dated legacy system with high maintenance fees and minimal control, the WSP Australia team was unable to provide timely business intelligence regarding ongoing projects.
“WSP is an example of how Unit4 Business World enables organizations to dramatically improve institutional effectiveness through the use of real-time data, automated processes, and predictive technology.”Mike Ettling, Unit4 CEO
Unit4 Business World harnesses the power of the Unit4 People Platform, drawing all Unit4 products together into a loosely coupled solution with a microservices-based architecture. This provides the WSP Australia team with an integrated solution which automates and digitizes their financial processes while enabling flexible reporting and insights. WSP was able to consolidate its applications by 80% resulting in improved alignment throughout all business processes.
“With Unit4, we experienced a 90% reduction in the time to produce reports as well as provide significantly more value to management, and ultimately, our clients,” said Kim Sammut, General Manager, Operational Excellence at WSP. “We can now quickly access critical information and immediate insights that our projects depend on.”
“Our unique, people-focused ERP solution delivers a fully-integrated suite of enterprise applications and technologies which allows our customers to more quickly respond to business needs,” said Mike Ettling, Chief Executive Officer at Unit4. “WSP is an example of how Unit4 Business World enables organizations to dramatically improve institutional effectiveness through the use of real-time data, automated processes, and predictive technology.”
