Unit4 and Embridge Consulting triumph in public sector

Continuing its ongoing success in the public sector, Unit4 has won a £30m ERP deal with Surrey County Council for an initial term of seven years with a 15 year life. The company will deploy its People Experience Suite with the support of its implementation partner, Embridge Consulting.

Comprising ERP, financial planning, analytics, and human capital management software, the platform also includes Proactis supplier management SaaS solutions, while a HR and payroll bureau service will be delivered to approximately 36,000 external users.

Unit4 will work with Embridge Consulting to deliver the programme to Surrey County Council, with the partnership continuing to support a growing number of UK authorities with their digital transformation.

Cherwell District Council, recently chose Unit4 ERP to help it take a performance management approach to budgets and finances, while North Lincolnshire Council and North East Lincolnshire Council will also benefit from Unit4’s latest SaaS ERP via a single shared system.

Several other councils are already using Unit4 software, including Herefordshire Council and Rutland County Council

James Arvin, public sector sales director at Unit4, said: “Partnering with Embridge Consulting has cemented our long-standing position as the market leader for ERP solutions to UK local government and we are proud to be part of such a transformative project. It is great to know our solutions are connecting, informing, and engaging teams and stakeholders effectively and efficiently.”
