UNIT4 Group – Why Work For Us?

undefined

Who we are
UNIT4 is a global cloud-focused business software and services company that helps dynamic public sector and commercial services organizations to embrace change simply, quickly and cost effectively in a market sector we call ‘Businesses Living IN Change’ (BLINC)™. The Group incorporates a number of the world’s leading change embracing software brands, including UNIT4 Agresso, our flagship ERP suite for mid-sized services intensive organizations; UNIT4 Coda, our best-of-class financial management software; and FinancialForce.com, the cloud applications company formed with investment from salesforce.com.

Solutions
We provide our clients with software products and services that are designed to meet the needs of an everchanging business world. Our solutions have been designed to adapt to any internal or external changes our clients’ businesses may face, irrespective of industry or market sector. Our aim is to help our customers embrace change successfully, while minimizing the cost and maximizing the efficiency of the change process.

Our customers and target sectors all share one common characteristic: they face on-going and rapid business change. There are a number of key drivers of this business change, including:

  • Reorganization and restructuring
  • New or changed business processes
  • Mergers & acquisitions
  • Government regulation and compliance.

As we understand that change is a constant and inevitable reality for BLINC organizations, we realize that their business software should empower them to respond easily and effectively to change.

Vision & mission
We aspire to set the global standard for business software that helps dynamic organizations embrace change simply, quickly and cost-effectively. It is our mission to create, deliver and support adaptable business software and services globally, helping organizations manage their dynamic business needs effectively. Our strategy is to grow organically and by acquisition to expand the scope of our solutions, the sectors we focus on and our ways to communicate with our customers. We wish to be known for the quality and innovation of our software, services and partnerships, the passion and skills of our people and the success of our clients.

Our value proposition ‘embracing change’ remains our core focus – to help our clients cope with change in its many forms and thrive in uncertain economic times – and gives us a clear differentiation in the marketplace. Many organizations talk about change and flexibility, but few really adopt it as their mantra and drive it through their organization. At UNIT4, we do!

    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Irving, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Irving, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at UNIT4 Group in May 2009.

    Interview Details

    Had an initial phone interview with the hiring manager and HR Manager. They are both in the North America office in Victoria, Canada. An in-person interview was then scheduled several weeks later in their office in Irving, TX. I was provided with "homework" which consisted of putting together a presentation on specific project management topics, plus bring samples of project plans and project documentation. The interview/ presentation was conducted by hiring manager, HR manager, plus two other managers. There was a lot of good discussion during the interview process. While the presentation was a lot of work for the interview I think it is very important since this job is a customer-facing position.
