Delivering upgrade and implementation services to Coda customers across UK
Maximising return on investment in Coda financial management solutions
Bristol, UK, 19.03.2014, UNIT4 Business Software, the UK subsidiary of UNIT4, the global leader in software that supports business change, has today announced that Millennium Consulting has become a Consultancy Service Partner for the company. The team will deliver a range of upgrade and implementation solutions and services as well as specialist staff such as solution architects, programme and project managers and applications and technical consultants to fulfil the particular needs of Coda customers in the UK. This partnership also represents further progress with UNIT4’s strategy to extend its solution and service offering while also expanding its market reach through the formation of strategic alliances with experts like Millennium Consulting.
Information technology plays a critical role in today’s fast paced and ever changing commercial environment. To deploy technology successfully requires strategic insight, organisation-wide adoption, delivery-focussed project management, system expertise and the drive to deliver the right solutions on time and on budget. As a result, the expertise of management consultancies like Millennium Consulting is being sought by organisations in all industries and sectors increasingly, as they look to select the right solution, drive efficiency, effect change quickly and with minimal disruption and risk, while maximising return on investment in technology. Founded in 1995, Millennium is ideally placed to meet these needs having extensive knowledge and experience of market dynamics and the role technology plays in addressing the many challenges facing commercial businesses today.
Anwen Robinson, Managing Director for UNIT4 Business Software in the UK and Ireland, commented: “Customers are focussed on ensuring efficiency and efficacy when it comes to all stages of a project lifecycle. In addition, they face pressure to ensure all of their teams are focussed on achieving corporate objectives rather than the management of systems implementations, upgrades and maintenance. In working with vendors like us they can be sure that we understand these pressures as well as the internal and external change drivers affecting their businesses and have solutions architected to meet their changing financial management needs today and in the future. In addition, and enhanced by our partnerships with organisations like Millennium Consulting, we can deliver specialist services to help customer negotiate the implementation and upgrade processes effectively while allowing their teams to focus on the more strategic elements of their role. We are pleased to welcome Millennium Consulting as a partner; the team is ideally placed to work alongside UNIT4, providing strategic advice and delivering technical solutions to enable Coda customers to operate successfully and achieve their commercial goals both now and in the future.”
Phil Keet, Head of Consulting at Millennium Consulting, added: “Working with customers to select, deploy and maximise the usage of technology that will help manage their financial processes and make change happen within their organisations is at the heart of everything we do. In working with UNIT4 we have found a solution partner who shares this vision too and has, in Coda, a best-in-class financial management solution which delivers the depth and breadth of functionality organisations in all industries and sectors need in order to understand their financial performance quickly and comprehensively. In addition, we all know how quickly the needs of businesses change and Coda’s architecture ensures that systems changes can be made rapidly and easily at any time; before, during or after the implementation. This flexibility combined with functional excellence ensures Coda remains one of the world’s leading financial management solutions. So we are looking forward to working with UNIT4 to take advantage of the many opportunities we feel this partnership offers, while also extending the services on offer to Coda customers across the UK.”
