  • “We are a textbook model for an organization 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.”

  • “Before Unit4 Business World On!, we were unable to provide COR results by business line, and now we can. Our Administrative Expenses Report used to take most of a day to complete, which required a manual cleaning and organizing of data. Now it takes less than ten minutes and five of that is getting coffee!”
