Unit 4 N.V. Key Developments

Wigan Council Selects UNIT4 Invoice4 to Drive Process Efficiency and Cost Reduction

UNIT4 announced that Wigan Council has purchased the UNIT4 Invoice4 solution as part of its objectives to drive process efficiency, automation and transformation within the Accounts Payable and Purchase to Pay processes. The Invoice4 solution will enable the council to scan incoming paper invoices and automatically import invoices that are received by email, once imported the Invoice4 solution will use intelligent data capture technologies to extract key information and identify invoice exceptions at the earliest opportunity. By adopting Invoice4, purchase invoices will be received into the UNIT4 ERP solution faster, with less effort and greater accuracy. It will also provide easy and rapid access to the electronic images held in the council’s existing UNIT4 ERP solution and deliver a structured process for managing highlighted exceptions. Invoice4 is a UNIT4 solution, powered by Intelligent Capture. The long-term partnership has seen both organizations work closely to design and develop seamlessly integrated, modular solutions and services aimed specifically at UNIT4 customers for Accounts Payable, Purchase to Pay and wider processes. As the solution is modular, the council has the option to generate further efficiencies, for example it could look to receipt invoices in other formats like XML and scan other types of documents aside from invoices, both within finance and other departments.

Unit4 to Expand its Activities in Poland and Spain

Unit4 will expand its activities in Poland and Spain, which will require a substantial investment. The expansion concerns Agresso accounting packages and is in line with the company's growth strategy. According to the company, companies are increasingly making use of leased packages under the so-called Software as a Service or SaaS business model. Previously, they bought those packages. Unit4 recognises more growth chances in this segment as the 40% revenue growth from SaaS service fees considerably exceeds what is generated from software licences. The company has already made considerable investments to create the next generation of enterprise software, as demonstrated with the latest release of its Agresso ERP platform and through its investment in US cloud applications company FinancialForce.com.
