In my last post I talked about the overarching reasons why I think UNIT4 has the edge over our competitors, but in this post I’m going to look at the simpler, user-based reasons that make us different.
At UNIT4, where I’ve worked now for over half a decade, we deliver our flagship products as services with all key business demands covered in our portfolio. ERP, financials, HRM and HCM as well as CPM can be deployed through the cloud.
The difficulty of modifying traditional ERP to support business change has been a major cause of so many project failures in the past. Traditional software evaluation has focused too much on the total cost of ownership (TCO), and implementation projects have concentrated on meeting the needs of the business at the time the project was agreed. Often the business changes even during the implementation project, causing disruption and budget overruns. Once the project team has left, further business change can render the initial ERP implementation outdated and almost useless.
