Unit4 Announces Enhanced Collaboration-Based Project Planning, Rapid Extension Kits and Industry Models to Help Service-Centric Organizations Deliver a Better People Experience Quickly
Unit4, a cloud leader in enterprise software for people-centered organizations, announced the latest release of Unit4 ERP, its Cloud-based platform used by over 2,700 organizations worldwide. The COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on customer attitudes towards ERP as more employees move to remote or home-based working. Today’s platforms need to offer flexibility, the ability to easily integrate with third-party systems and be able to deploy industry-specific functionality and easy-to-develop extensions. Time to value is a cornerstone for any new ERP system, so the ability to expedite deployments through proven methodologies while leveraging industry best practices is a critical success factor.
Global Project Resource Planning and Management
This latest release includes new capabilities that allow complex service-based organizations to more effectively plan and resource projects to improve outcomes. They can work together more seamlessly across multiple legal entities to improve collaboration, streamline work and provide improved service to their customers. In addition, it leverages social, mobile, predictive analytics and machine-learning technologies from the Unit4 People Platform to provide a self-driving solution that enables people to focus less on administrative tasks and more on what matters most to their organization’s purpose.
Purpose-built Extensions Deliver New Capabilities and Value
Through Unit4’s low code Extension Kit, customers can benefit from the ability to connect different business systems and create new workflows without the need to develop code. The kit is available for customers and partners to seamlessly make use of all the capabilities offered by Unit4 ERP. Unit4 partners are adding value to the company’s products through Extension Kit developments, rapid best practice implementations and customer training.
Faye O’Connell, Product Development Director at Embridge Consulting said: “Unit4’s Extension Kit presents a fantastic opportunity to seamlessly integrate with external and legacy applications, while removing the need for out-of-date data exchange approaches like file transfers. Our plans at Embridge Consulting are to support customers in the configuration of flows that will leverage the capabilities of the Extension Kits and deliver optimized end-to-end business processes.”
