UNIT4 brings international expertise to the Singapore education sector with appointment by SIM
UNIT4 enables SIM to manage dynamic business needs and reduce administrative spending in today’s competitive education environment
Bristol, UK, March 25, 2014 – UNIT4, the global leader in software that supports business change, today announced that the Singapore Institute of Management (SIM) has selected UNIT4 Agresso to provide effective operational support and strategic management to its core administrative processes.
UNIT4 Agresso, a fully integrated solution, is designed to help dynamic organisations like SIM reduce complex processes by automating and streamlining financial and business data.
SIM is a leading provider of higher education and professional training in Singapore. Founded in 1964 as a not-for-profit management institute, a spin off of the Economic Development Board, SIM is committed to education and lifelong learning catering to a specific market segment of learners.
“We are proud and excited about our partnership with SIM. At UNIT4, we believe that our solutions enable organisations to embrace change independently and sustainably so they can become more flexible, efficient and innovative,” said Chua Weng Foo, CEO of UNIT4 Asia Pacific. “Organisations that don’t invest in agile, integrated systems will ultimately find it difficult to meet business requirements and as a result will struggle to retain their market competitiveness.”
With the adoption of Agresso, SIM will join the larger UNIT4 Higher Education community around the world and enjoy exchanges among the top universities such as Southampton, Cranfield and Oxford University in the UK. UNIT4 provides software solutions to more than 400 Education and Research Institutions globally.
UNIT4 is a global cloud-focused business software and services company aimed at helping dynamic public sector and commercial services organizations to embrace change simply, quickly and cost effectively. The Group incorporates a number of the world’s leading change embracing software brands including Agresso, our flagship ERP suite for mid-sized and large services intensive organizations; Coda, our best-of-class financial management software; and FinancialForce.com, the cloud applications company formed with investment from salesforce.com.
In the UK we focus strongly on the public sector, where we are the leading provider of ERP systems to local government and post-16 education organisations, as well as having a considerable presence in the emergency services and health sectors. We also focus strongly on professional services organisations and a range of commercial sectors including Financial Services, Retail and Media and Publishing. Overall we aim to be the UK’s foremost business software company, providing solutions that transform the delivery of public services and comprehensively support commercial organisations in their ability to adapt and prosper in rapidly changing environments.
