War Child guarantees campaign accountability and transparency with Unit4 Business World

Better managed funds ensure maximum program impact and more children protected

Utrecht, Netherlands, 

Unit4, world leader in enterprise systems for Not-for-Profit organizations, announces today that War Child has implemented Unit4 Business World ERP, to maximize efficiency and ensure transparency and accountability to donors.

1 in 6 children worldwide is currently growing up in a conflict area. War Child is committed to a better life for children affected by war in fourteen countries and offers a combination of psychosocial support, protection and education.

Using Unit4's cloud solution for financial and project management, operational budgeting, procurement and HR, War Child can record costs and revenues multidimensionally. Combined with time registration, a controlled procurement process and a declaration process, it can better keep costs under control and execute projects effectively within budget, ensuring vital funds are well spent.

"With the help of Unit4, War Child can continue to report its campaign and program impact to donors in the future"

“The collaboration with Unit4 is an enormous leap forward,” said Fiona Buruma, Finance Manager at War Child. “Due to War Child's growth in recent years, the previous system was no longer sufficient. With the help of Unit4, War Child can continue to report its campaign and program impact to donors in the future. The level of accountability it gives us supports our low cost policy, and is very important for Not-for-Profit organizations like War Child where every penny and every decision counts.”

"There is great pressure on not-for-profit organizations to keep overhead costs low and to spend the funding they receive as effectively as possible on the beneficiaries. This can only be successful with a good, transparent administration. We are proud to be able to use our not-for-profit sector knowledge and solutions to support War Child in its fantastic work," says Rob Gethen Smith, head of the Unit4 Not-for-Profit Centre of Excellence.

War Child's Dutch head office is already benefiting from Unit4 Business World. The system will be rolled out to its other country offices by the end of 2018.
