Unit4, a cloud leader in people-based ERP, today announced two customer wins for its expanding higher education portfolio. University Canada West (UCW) and its sister school, Toronto School of Management (TSoM) selected Unit4 to support an accelerated growth strategy.
UCW, a contemporary independent university in Vancouver, has had phenomenal growth and has more than doubled in size over the last two years, with expectations to do so again over the next two. To support future expansion plans, the University selected Unit4’s Business World ERP platform to transform operations and improve operational efficiency, scalability, and system reliability. UCW’s sister school, TSoM, also anticipates future growth, selecting Unit4 to transform its financial management. With these wins, private institutions are becoming the fastest growing higher education segment for Unit4 in Canada.
“Unit4 provides over 750 colleges and universities globally with our unique, people-focused ERP solutions,” said Andy Brockhoff, North American President at Unit4. “The continued growth of our higher education portfolio in North America demonstrates how Unit4 takes away the administration burden and allows institutions to digitally transform with a focus on people and students.”
